Irish traditions continued in America

America’s gone green–no, not economically–but culturally. The fighting Irish are showing their true colors this St. Patrick’s day, and they are celebrating countless traditions.

Youth soccer takes a new direction

As soccer begins to grow in popularity, high school affiliated teams are losing players to the more competitive club system. Instead of playing two seasons, one with each team, players are having to choose whether to play for an academy or for their respected high schools.

Kiss me, I’m Irate

St. Patrick’s Day is probably one of the most misinterpreted holidays of all time. My last name is McCurdy and I grew up being very proud of my Irish heritage but when this day comes each year I am insulted by the way some people choose to “celebrate” it.

Trader Joe’s provides unique shopping experience

Trader Joe’s: a California staple with Colorado style. It was all over the news as Colorado hosted the grand opening of three grocery store locations—Denver, Boulder and Greenwood Village—on February 14.
This California-born chain of grocery stores has been long-awaited by many in the state. In all honesty, I was uncertain if it would live up to all the hype that surrounded its grand opening. While I was not dumbfounded by its marvelous West Coast-inspired inventory, I was pleasantly surprised by some of the traits it had to offer to the Coloradan clientele.

Getting back to a passion

I have played soccer since the age of three, and have never taken a season off by choice until last fall. For the first time in 14 years, I decided to commit myself to other things besides the sport that I have put years of hard work and effort into.
After taking nearly a year off, I made a quick decision to play my last season in my high school career. Without running, working out, or playing soccer in a year, I went into tryouts nervous but also excited to get back to what I love.
