A rare piece of merchandise of my alma mater

Scored this in Las Vegas and added it to my collection which already includes my pro teams, the Flyers and the Packers. I had to double check this item before I bought it since Marquette stupidly took the same colors … Continue reading

Special Chucks to celebrate my graduation! MU30, Part 1

Current events and exhaustion kept this mini-gallery from being posted along with its companion piece reminiscing about how it was merely 30 years ago I graduated from university. I stupidly missed the one-day Black Friday offer on the site so … Continue reading

1989: Hoser & Mag show debuts on WMUR

I think our show only lasted about seven to eight weeks before I bailed on José to finish up the semester. I’m guessing I quit for a couple reasons, one being the desire to sleep in on Sunday mornings and … Continue reading

Marquette radio/stream is actually listenable

I truly cannot even remember when I hunted it down to add it to my iTunes’ radio but most days Marquette’s stream plays music from this century unlike the attitudes when I attended. One major difference is that the DJs … Continue reading

Last evening was National Marquette Day and this year we were TV in the evening. We also celebrated at Pinballz Lake Creek which was my idea. The venue has a TV with cable, full bar and good food. I took … Continue reading

Marquette v. Wisconsin

We lost by nine points but at least we were a bit ahead at the half. Nice to see some other alumni but this group reside way up in Georgetown at a retirement village.

Farewell to McCormick Hall, aka the Beer Can

This is very old news to any living in Milwaukee and/or more into keeping up with Marquette events. I found out recently through the alumni magazine. All I had to say was “It’s about time!” McCormick Hall was so crappy … Continue reading

Marquette Day 2016

National Marquette Day for Austin was different this year. The nice coordinating lady Annette booked us to meet at the relatively new Geno’s East on Sixth Street. Nice. Southside Chicago-style deep-dish pizza without the chain-smoking, obnoxious accent and dictator who somehow … Continue reading

1990: Marquette graduation, the Marcotte version

Last month was the 25th anniversary of the Class of 1990’s graduation. No more games of three-man, no more papers and no more dorm-food dinners! Time to face the real world which in 1990 was during the Reagan-Bush Recession, the … Continue reading

Marquette Day 2015

Villanova pretty much had the game under control after five minutes, or at least it’s when I recall tuning out. I mainly attend these things just to see how many of us exist around here. Most Texans only recall my alma mater when … Continue reading

Marquette Day 2014 in Austin

The annual tradition was upheld as the baton has been passed from the former local organizer Chris to Annette recently. Chris is in the process of moving to Chicago, poor guy especially with the brutal winter happening. Annette did a … Continue reading

1989: My afternoon and evening with Mojo Nixon

Days like this one 20 years ago always makes me regret not being more of a shutterbug but back then cameras were just such a nuisance: the film, the delays to develop and worst of all, not knowing how well … Continue reading
