A new Georgetown Day tradition: Puke up Wingo’s for a cause
Joel Ziebel (COL ’10) wants to know: are you “Interested in chowing down on some Wingo’s buffalo wings, downing Red Bull, representing your student organization on Georgetown Day, competing against other Hoyas and faculty, and doing it all for a charity?!”
Yes, for $20, you and a teammate from a student club can compete in the first annual “Jack Wings,” a contest that, “at high-noon” on Georgetown Day, will pit your student group against another for fame and glory, turn you vegetarian, and all but guarantee that you’ll “Jack Wings” in the bushes immediately outside the Healy Gates in under an hour. (Guessing that’s what inspired the title).
The contest was conceived by Ziebel for a Reimagine Georgetown grant, which is sponsored by The Corp and is co-sponsored by The Hoya. He called it “Saxa Service Feast” and in November, won $2,000 for his idea.
And hey, all collected proceeds go to charity! So even though this sounds completely disgusting, our imaginations still ran wild with rivalries that could come to a head through this competition:
- SAC versus GUSA. Duh.
- College Dems versus College Republicans. Does Obama’s health care plan cover broken ribs from the Heimlich maneuver?
- ANC Commissioner Ron Lewis versus ANC Commissioner Aaron Golds (COL ’11). The winner gets to pass the 2010 Campus Plan in any form he chooses.
- Vice President for Student Affairs Todd Olson versus Provost Jim O’Donnell, for a special place in President John DeGioia’s heart.
- Georgetown, Divest! versus the Office of Investment. If the University wins, they get to invest the endowment only in socially irresponsible ways.
- Plan A Hoyas versus GU Right To Life. If Plan A wins, Georgetown has to allow condom sales on its property. If RTL wins, the condom-toting Jack O’Gioia leprechaun has to leave town, and never return.
To sign up, e-mail “Jack Wings Wingman” Joel Ziebel at JackWings2010@gmail.com. As for us, we’ll stick to our annual softball game against The Hoya, thank you very much.
