How kind of you to drop by for the Tuesday Skull Session. Why don't you pull up a chair?
Like the rest of the year, May has been chillier than usual1 but we're finally getting into quality summer weather. OSU students are trying to understand what it's like to not have any classes in May after running into June for so many years. It's quite confusing to the senses, and to old habits. For instance, this would be the perfect time to sunbathe on the Oval, but with most people gone the main campus reminds me of Oberlin more than OSU.
The year is winding down for most Buckeye sports teams, but in the professional league playoffs some Buckeyes are doing work. In the NHL, former Buckeye Matt Bartkowski of the Boston Bruins couldn't have picked a better time to score his first career postseason goal, as his team defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 to advance in the playoffs. In his third year in the league, Bartkowski has only seen spot time, but for the rest of the playoffs he'll receive more notice.
In the NBA, Mike Conley Jr. once again was sensational, guiding the Memphis Grizzlies to a 3-1 series lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Conley, who was just named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team, led the Grizzlies in points, assists, and steals in a 103-97 overtime win. Outside of people named "Stephen Curry", nobody in the NBA is hotter than Conley right now.
