Some might remember Jeremy Lin as the kid who led the Palo Alto varsity boys’ basketball team to a state title back in 2006. Or maybe they remember him as the man who scored an impressive 30 points against the 13th ranked UConn Huskies in 2009, slamming home two massive dunks on Harvard’s way to a...

You know the phrase "these things don't happen every day?" Well reader, that's because they don't. Not for kids (well technically I am an adult) at Paly, or any high schooler for that matter. Last Friday Night, I didn’t dance on table tops with Katy Perry. Instead, on The Viking's first ever New Yo...

NEW YORK-Double dipping is one of the most egregious violations at any get-together with chips and salsa. However, Friday night at Madison Square Garden, we discovered the more sinister side of the term. Let us first give you some back-story. As part of The Viking's trip to New York City, we were...

Athlete or not, life goals are a part of, well...life. But the countless hours of work, determination, and reaching the point of nearly quitting are all worth it once you make it through to the other side. Reader, I accomplished a life goal today.

I know how foreign that may sound, what with him leading the before-terrible Knicks to wins in 8 out of their last 10 games, including a 7 game winning streak.

This President’s Day break, oh humble readers, Shanzie here did the unthinkable. I watched a live NBA game, two nights in a row. (I know, I know. Don’t faint out of shock or anything.) And I have Jeremy Lin to thank for this monumental moment in my life. To be honest, I was an NFL girl up ...
