Good News from Iraq

Arthur Chrenkoff continues compiling and publishing the good news from Iraq. Installment 18 is hot of the virtual-presses.

The New Year Begins

And it begins with Hebrew during the January term, so this will be a very busy month. We covered the Hebrew alphabet today. Studying will continue until the Sugar Bowl later this evening.

Utah Beats Up Pitt 35-7 to Become Fiesta Bowl Champs

Congratulations to now-former coach Urban Meyer and the entire Ute Squad! In honor of the victory, I'm posting the lyrics to that wonderfully urbane fight song, "Utah Man":
I am a Utah man, sir and I live across the green.

Our gang it is the jolliest that you have ever seen.

Our coeds are the fairest and each one's a shining star.

Our yell, you hear it ringing through the mountains near and far.


Who am I, sir, a Utah man am I:

A Utah man, sir, and will be till I die: Ki! Ki!

We're up to snuff: we never bluff.

We're game for any fuss.

No other gang of college men dare meet us in the muss.

So fill your lungs and sing it out shout it to the sky.

We'll fight for dear old crimson for a Utah man am I.


And when we prom the avenue, all lined up in a row.

And arm in arm and step in time as down the street we go.

No matter if a freshman green, or in a senior's gown,

The people all admit we are the warmest gang in town.


We may not live forever on this jolly good old sphere,

But while we do we'll live a life of merriment and cheer.

And when our college days are o'er and night is drawing nigh,

With parting breath we'll sing that song:

A Utah Man am I!
