SAM’S CORNER: Finally back to McKale, internship update and Marvel movie review


Hello Wildcat fans!

We’re finally back at McKale! It had been a while since we last played at home, almost three weeks. It was good to come back and play in front of our fans. We were a little rusty but we got the win over North Dakota State and our next game is Sunday against New Mexico at 1pm. This is our last game at McKale for 2021.

Apart from that, I finished my final exams for my classes, I had two ten page assignments and then I had to finish my last week of internship. I will no longer be an intern at the SID office, but will still be there from time to time. It was a great experience for me and I met new people from different departments that I had not yet seen for our basketball games.

I have a lot of respect and a new understanding of behind the scenes of sporting events.


After I finished my final, I rewarded myself by going to the movies. Lucas and I went to see Eternals at Roadhouse. I’ve never been a Marvel fan and I always complain every time I go to see one because people are so passionate about Marvel movies and the way they all connect. I’ve only seen about 5 Marvel movies and it was never my first choice to see them. I also have a short attention span when it comes to movies (unless it’s romance movies), so two hours is my maximum time until I log out.

Of course, all Marvel movies are still almost three hours long and then you have to stick around after the credits roll. These just aren’t my favorite type of movies. However, after watching Eternal, I think I might have found my favorite Marvel movie. I’m not going to spoil anything but the plot was very good and I highly recommend everyone to watch it.

Plus, Roadhouse has the best jalapeño popcorn.
