Friends, let’s start out with a little…storytelling. As most of you who are familiar with The Viking know, we cover all Paly sporting events by dividing up into beat teams. Each beat team is responsible for covering a sport for the entirety of its season and currently, I have the honor of being...

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...

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. It is kind of silly, in retrospect: I got my CCS time ...

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 ...

Like any athlete, I like food. Like any water athlete, I burn more calories than the average person does in a week. I eat a lot. A LOT. Of food. Put down any kind of food, you name it, it will become good friends with my stomach down below momentarily. There’s one food in particular, however, that w...

Happy 2012, readers! Yes, this early on in the year, a crucial issue has caught my eye: the Colts have earned the number one draft pick. Yes, I do know that this means their season of one win and god KNOWS how many losses has earned them this title. Needless to say, the lack of Peyton Manning was...

Each time the holiday season comes around, I have to clear a little space in the corner of my room to fit my pint-size Christmas tree, a tradition my family has practiced since my birth. Friends, you know the holidays have arrived in Scheeldom when a petite noble fir (this year, mine’s named Norbert)...

No beating around the bush: I have an obsession with Nike products. Sometimes I find my consumerism a little bit embarrassing. But no matter how much my friends berate me for the thirteen (GASP) pairs of jeans I own, I can’t help myself: I’m an athlete, but also a shopper. And to be honest, if...

Every Sunday morning ordeal with my fantasy squad, Team Brosefina, goes down in a similar manner. (I am particularly engrossed in Fantasy sports this Sunday, as I am in denial that I will never play another high school water polo game as a Viking and that is too much to handle.) I set my alarm to...

  This past humble evening, I realized that my columns needed a little extra “oomph.” Also, since I’ve started tweeting (if you need more of a daily Shans fix, hit up “shanscheel” on Twitter one time), I have been motivated to become more in touch with the news of the world. Because,...
