It's Devil's Night and I offer some suggestions as to how ASU can celebrate their namesake night. Plus, a good recruiting roundup in the links and a picture... Oh man that picture.

You know, it's probably a good thing that ASU and WSU aren't playing tonight. Why? Wikipedia tells me that the night before Halloween is known as "Devils's Night."

Traditionally, city youths engaged in a night of criminal behavior, which usually consisted of acts of vandalism (such as egging, soaping or waxing windows and doors, leaving rotten vegetables or flaming bags of animal feces on front porch stoops, or toilet papering trees and shrubs). These were almost exclusively acts of petty vandalism, causing little to no property damage.

Coincidence? Yeah. Almost certainly.

Go out and enjoy your night, Sun Devils. I would consider you guys to be "youths" still. So... Go crazy! Go egg houses. Go leave rotten vegetables on front porches. Go "wax windows and doors" (whatever that means). Whatever you do, just make sure you stay out late with blatant disregard for any prior commitments that you may have scheduled for tomorrow. It's your night! Live it up!

Anyway, onto the big day itself. The campus going to be kind of a mess on Thursday. President Floyd tried to curb it by canceling afternoon classes and making morning classes optional (an option that both of my professors took - Thanks guys!). But there is still more to do. The WSU News service has tried to curb some confusing by doing a write up on all the changes made and all the scheduled events. Interesting scheduled events include a Halloween carnival in Beasley Coliseum from 2-4 and a talk from Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott in the CUB Auditorium from 4-5:30 (please, don't show up drunk).

Actual Hot Cougars

I... Uh... I was going to make my usual joke about a hot older woman and then linking to a different kind of cougar, like the animal or the car. In my search today, however, I came across this and couldn't look away... It's mesmerizing... I'm really not sure what it is... But there it is. You're welcome/I'm really sorry.
