Crenushe launches GUSA executive ticket

Georgetown University Student Association’s  (GUSA) election season is now in full swing with Enushe Khan (current GUSA speaker of the senate) and Chris Fisk (GUSA deputy of chief) are running for president and vice president positions, respectively.

The pair launched their campaign on the night of February 4, with a rally in Red Square, where 50 of their supporters gathered to help them announce their ticket. According to The Hoya, the “Crenushe” ticket is one of the largest in Georgetown history with over 200 supporters at the time of launch.

With the tagline “Breaking Barriers” the candidates entered Red Square to Don Omar’s “Danza Kuduro” and completed their proclamation with a light show.

The Crenushe executive ticket is currently running unopposed, and has announced many of its policies and major goals over the last week and a half. They are looking to “break barriers and build bridges in our community so we can engage and learn from one another” according to the ticket’s Twitter bio. To complete this mission, the duo and its team has suggested reforms in many areas including in Georgetown’s dining and auxiliary  services.

 

Despite well laid-out plans and a strong, unopposed campaign, Crenushe is facing some backlash from different media outlets on campus, such as the Georgetown Academy. The Academy, like The Hoya before it, commented on Khan’s summer obligations, which include an internship at Goldman Sachs, leaving her unable to complete certain administrative roles that the GUSA president is required to fulfill.

Early in the afternoon on February 7, two ferocious teams did justice for the Super [Human] Bowl 50’s equally daunting opponents, the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos, in a preview competition.

Fans all around the world of human and canine variety tuned in for the big game. Those particularly interested even had the opportunity to participate in a fantasy game, similar to Fantasy Football, run by ESPN each NFL season.

The Puppy Bowl, which promotes puppy adoption, kicked off at 3 pm Eastern Standard Time and the ongoing rivalry between teams Fluff and Ruff continued for the 12th year running on Animal Planet.

Both teams came out strong in the 19 by 10 foot stadium where the shelter pups competed for puppy touchdowns. However, team Ruff prevailed, led by puppy Star, to victory. Star came out of Puppy Bowl XII as the MVP. She was awarded rightfully so, with her all-star performance topped with her double puppy touch down which was the first in Puppy Bowl history according to SB Nation.

The Puppy Bowl’s halftime show rivaled the performance of Coldplay, Beyoncé and Bruno Mars as they promoted love at Super Bowl 50, with the attack of the ferocious kittens.

In relation to puppies and today’s largest television event, one of the strangest, actually horrifying commercials of Super Bowl 50, according to the Huffington Post was Mountain Dew’s “PuppyMonkeyBaby” commercial.

Heinz also ran a commercial with puppies, as many big brands often do. It makes sense, because truly, who can resist a cute little guy like Star and her buddies that played in the Puppy Bowl?

The big game stirred up a great deal of attention on social media, including Twitter, where several fans noted their desire to be involved in one of the most famous, and undoubtedly the cutest event associated with the Super Bowl.

Unfortunately, since the puppies can only be between 12 and 21 weeks old to participate, there can be no repeat-MVPs or winners. However, this is not the case in the Human Bowl, where players like Peyton Manning, quarterback for the Broncos, who, with tonight’s win, has acquired two Super Bowl rings and 200 career victories.

A different, everlasting type of victory, came though, for the Puppy Bowl participants and their pooch peers as adoption searches rose while the event aired on Animal Planet:
