News and Notes: Evening Edition, Alumni Updates

Below, some news and notes for the evening with some alumni updates...
  • In his personal blog, It's pronounced "Jakes"-- Cornell alum, Jon Jaques ('10) blogs about his first haircut experience overseas. Jaques writes in part, "I’ve known for some time now it was time to cut my pillowy mound of curly hair (aka jewfro ). I’ve been delaying this chore for a while though (one month since I’ve been in Israel, a little more than 2 months total) because finding a place to get a hair cut in a foreign country is underratedly hard (plus until you get visual confirmation, you can never be 100% sure people in countries that aren’t the USA actually get haircuts). Once I started getting heckled by wild Cornell fans who didn’t exactly appreciate the jewfro I was rocking in this video taken at the Israeli League’s opening ceremony, I knew it was time..."
  • Jeff Foote ('10) got to see his first action with Maccabi Tel Aviv over the weekend in the Wroclaw Tournament exhibition action in Poland. Maccabi swept through the tournament with two wins, beating Turów of Poland 75 – 69 and Pervkom Gdynia 83-65. If you speak Hebrew, you might just enjoy these highlights.


  • Ryan Wittman ('10) scored 1o points for Fulogor Libertas Forli in the team's exhibition loss to Italian second division rival, Veroli in the Imola Tournament yesterday. Below, photos from the tournament.

  • Below, some footage of Louis Dale's ('10) and Gottingen's trip over the weekend to the Brose Tournament. Gottingen lost both games in the tournament.

I really hate reading stuff from Jaques. Updates on his status are fine, but if I wanted to read his stuff, then I'd go to his blog, not yours.

Not sure of the reason of the hostility of Anonymous to the Jaques blog. I enjoyed reading it off the Blogspot. As a longtime alum and Big Red hoops fan, I am proud of Jon's achievements, first as a patient though underused Big Red team member for 3 years, then as a hustling contributor and sharpshooter in the great season just past, and now as a professional in Israel.

The Sept. 21 3:34 pm comment should have been labeled as sent by BigRed1965. (My bad!)

There are quite a few Ivy fans (non-Cornell fans) that read this site and enjoy anonymous posting and posing as Cornell fans. It is pretty obvious from their IP addresses that they are students at other Ivy schools.
