The Monday Catchup


Good morning! Here’s what you missed over the weekend:

The Lead Story: NBA Center Jason Collins, who came out to Sports Illustrated last April, will become the first openly gay player in the “big four” American sports (or at least the first to be accepted by the press). Collins signed a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday. His performance during this period will likely decide whether the Nets (or another team) sign him to a longer contract.

Everything Else:

After a dozen year manhunt, Mexican officials apprehended Juaquin “El Chapo” (ed: his nickname was Shorty) Guzman, arguably the world’s biggest drug trafficker. Mexican officials are calling this the “drug world equivalent of taking down Osama Bin Laden.

Sadly, the Winter Olympics have come to a close. Here’s a tally of the medal count, with Russia winning the most overall.

California is considering dividing up into six states. The initiative needs 807K signatures to make it onto the ballot this November.

Sure, you probably drink Coke from the soda fountain at Peirce, but how much do you really know about America’s favorite beverage?

You’ve probably thought about where you want to live after you graduate (especially seniors). Should it be New York, though?

Here’s the latest on the situation in Ukraine, where the President has fled and the parliament has seized power in the interim.

The Long Read: Playboy interviews Gawker founder Nick Denton, the man responsible for the celebrity gossip you know and love.

The Weather: Bad news friends, last week’s warmth isn’t here to stay. Expect highs in the low 20s and lows in the teens and single digits throughout the week. It will probably snow a bit tomorrow, so be prepared for that. Then again, this is Ohio — it could snow anytime.
