During an especially introspective stretch of time, my 15-year-old self jotted down several quotes that fell within the boundaries of what I perceived to be profound. One of the first to appear was the phrase, “The only thing I know is that I know nothing,” derived from something Socrates may or may not have once said.
In the world of sports, athletes often retire well past their prime, which only makes sense as ultra-competitive individuals struggle to deal with the decline of their abilities. Thankfully, this column avoids that awkward dilemma by never having had a prime in the first place. We’re not going out on top, per se, but we are most certainly going out.

Youth fades quickly, or so I’ve learned in the past few years. A little under two years ago, I was tasked to write a sophomore summer sports column titled “First Team.” Every week, I walked into The Dartmouth’s offices, sat down next to the editors and typed out 800 words of pure energy the night the column was due.
It’s late April and it snowed last week. Give me a break. Also, don’t read last week’s predictions. Here are eight insightful observations from the past seven days:
It’s finally here: the NBA playoffs — and along with them, a set of predictions you never wanted. Here’s “Honorable Mention”’s picks, informed by brief Google searches, fantasy basketball and tuning in to the last two minutes of close games.
To my one reader (hello mother): welcome to week three.
Honorable Mention: April Showers
On March 18, 1995, Michael Jordan announced he was returning to basketball after spending the previous year and a half swinging a baseball bat. The return was big — billion dollars on an elevator big; two mixtapes in six months big — and announced with just two words on a fax: “I’m back.” Jordan went on to drop 19 points, six rebounds and six assists the next day against the Indiana Pacers.
To the Dartmouth Community,
In allegations that span multiple generations of graduate students, four students in Dartmouth’s department of psychological and brain sciences told The Dartmouth this week that three professors now under investigation by the College and state prosecutors created a hostile academic environment that they allege included excessive drinking, favoritism and behaviors that they considered to be sexual harassment.
Abbey D’Agostino ’14 made national headlines this past Tuesday after tripping over fallen New Zealand runner Nikki Hamblin in the preliminary round of the women’s 5,000-meter race and helping her back up. D’Agostino and Hamblin finished the race and were advanced to the final by default, but D’Agostino was forced to withdraw from competition with a torn ACL and meniscus. D’Agostino finished the last mile of the race despite her injuries.
Hello, Class of 2020. We’re sure you’re anxiously poring through your course selection book and tackling your dorm shopping checklist as you count down the days until your arrival in Hanover. Maybe you’re insanely excited or insanely nervous, or some combination of both. No matter how you feel, you’re about to experience the most transformative, overwhelming, crazy and wonderful time of your life. We assembled this issue to provide a little guidance along the way. So take a deep breath, and maybe take out a pen to take some notes.
The author of “First Team” has not slept very much recently. In fact, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that he hasn’t slept at all. However, I have to pull through for my boys, namely sports editor Chris Shim ’18. Incoming: 800 words — but just that. Coherency need not apply.
As the shock waves from Kevin Durant’s departure reverberated away, Russell Westbrook agreed to a three-year, $85 million contract extension with the Oklahoma City Thunder this Thursday.

Sophomore summer is too easy. As the summer staff at The D rotates through editor positions under the careful and trained eye of editor-in-chief Rebecca “A-Side” Asoulin ’17, I’ve enjoyed the week off to lounge on the Green and hand in “First Team” five hours late to this week’s sports editor Vikram Bodas ’18 — who turned his own articles in on-time a grand total of zero times in the spring. Revenge is like the sweetest joy next to “getting money,” or so the saying goes.
Before I dive into this first edition of “First Team,” I’d like to acknowledge those that came before me.
Thirteen Big Green sports teams have released their list of recruits for the incoming Class of 2020. In total, 127 freshmen have been named as varsity athletes for next season. Of those, 31 are from the track and field and cross country teams and 35 are football players.
