Football Team Tackles Camp Project

leave a comment »

Westfield State College football players recently volunteered to help prepare the Westfield YMCA’s Camp Shepard for its summer-month outdoor programs.

Approximately 20 players worked six solid hours to spruce up the scenic camp area. They raked leaves in the swimming pool area and along the walking trails of the seven-acre campgrounds. The leaf raking not only enhanced the landscape but it will be instrumental in limiting bugs during the hot summer days.
Other tasks included moving tables and canoes as well as replacing light bulbs in the pavilion areas. Read the rest of this entry »

How Neil Diamond Ruined Baseball: Why Red Sox Nation Stinks

So its fall again and school is here, and everyone is excited to be back. Not so much for the education, but for the extended family, extracurricular activities, freedom and those, other extracurricular activities that my advocating here would be looked down upon. Anyway, my name is Matt Castonguay and I’ll be leading a voyage through the sports world via this column every week here in The Voice and/or on my supplement group at titled “From the Cheap Seats.”

First of all, I hate the New England Patriots, Red Sox nation (not the Sox, I love the Sox but I HATE the nation, so don’t accuse me of being a Yankee fan), Ron Artest, Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, politics in general and a lot more. Conversely, I love the band The Police, the New York football Giants, Paula Creamer, golfing (my favorite drinking game) and I love the Manning family almost as much as my own family. That being said, I look forward to checking my inbox ( or )and wall posts at the group, telling me how wrong I am and all that jazz. Actually, I hope to put out a mailbag column every couple of weeks or so, so other readers can see how much flack I’m taking for what I’m writing, or to find out for sure that I’m not alone in my love of the Mannings, Cooper included. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to the sports. Read the rest of this entry »
