  1. Expect the Maize and Blue to bury the Spartans like the last 4 years, you mean? Yeah – you keep on dreaming, pal.

    “You root for your local team or the team whose college you attended… not the team with the cheapest merchandise at WalMart.”

  2. I’ve been to Erebus! Long wait on busy weekends close to Halloween, and a bit on the pricey side (I believe it is normally $25 a person, but 5$ off with a coupon from their site) but it’s worth it!
    Supposedly it’s one of the top haunted attractions in the country, as well as one of the longest (4 stories!). They have some pretty unique things that I haven’t seen or heard of in other places – I won’t spoil, but definitely worth a trip!
