Give me something to write about at UCSD

    Please excuse the quality of my few prior columns. I apologize for the boredom that they may have caused, but it’s hard to write a good column without a decent topic.

    Like most of the columns I have written, I didn’t have a clue as far as what to write about until the late hours of the night before it was due.

    “”Why do I have so much trouble with thinking of a topic to write about?”” you might ask.

    “”Why isn’t there anything interesting at UCSD to write about?”” I would respond. (I know it’s bad to respond to a question with another question, but I did it anyway.)

    There’s little going on here. It’s week two of the fall quarter, and it seems like the Guardian has already touched on most of the topics currently surrounding UCSD athletics.

    There haven’t been any big scandals or controversies in the local sports world for us to talk about. Actually, I doubt there will be a story about trouble concerning UCSD sports until people show that they actually care enough about the Tritons for the athletic department to pull strings and land recruits that will shake this powerful conference.

    I have to say that it would be nice to actually report on UCSD breaking rules in trying to build strong athletic teams. It would definitely be a change (and maybe a dream) to write about the topics that come up at prestigious collegiate sports organizations.

    But for now, instead of writing about an All-American wide receiver driving a tricked-out SUV, I’ll have to stick with the topics that the Tritons provide me with.

    So ladies of the women’s soccer team, which surprisingly lost two of three games prior to Sunday’s matchup at UC Davis: You guys better start winning so I can talk about the dynasty that might be in the making. Until the Tritons start winning and look like the two-time-defending national champions they are, I can’t even write about how the soccer team is likely to three-peat.

    And women’s volleyball: Continue with this strong run through your schedule to attract more energizing crowds at RIMAC Arena. The abnormally large attendance at sporting events like volleyball games early this year has been touched on, but the Guardian can’t continue to talk about the change that UCSD might be making without a heart-filled team getting past conference-rival Cal State San Bernardino and making a strong postseason push.

    Hopefully, men’s soccer, water polo or cross country will soon give me with something to write about. Potential also lies on the basketball court and on the baseball field, where teams might provide newsworthy performances and attract the eyes of UCSD later in the year.

    However, until things become more interesting here at Triton Town, I’ll be left with a blank Word document for too long, and my five faithful readers of this column will reach a new level of boredom.
