Qdoba Wins

For all those out there who favor Chipotle’s burrito over Qdoba’s there can be only one excuse: they’ve never tried Qdoba. In my opinion Qdoba’s masterpiece beats Chipotle’s in every way. Whether it’s the choice of ingredients available – Qudoba has 2 more starting meat options than Chipotle, counting the vegetarian option – or their ability to wrap the giant...
Crack! The 34.5 inch, 33 ounce brown wood bat connected with the small white ball blur, catapulting the baseball way over the centerfield wall, the sound reverberating throughout the venerable Yankee Stadium. Josh Hamilton’s 28th homerun in the first round of the 2008 Home Run Derby set the record for the most homeruns ever hit in a round, a...
For the 2nd straight year, the Texas Rangers have made it to the World Series. Unlike last year, where unusually strong starting pitching and Cliff Lee’s dominating performance spurred the Rangers to postseason success, this year, the Rangers’ shut-down bullpen and monstrous bats, especially the bat of Nelson Cruz, have led them to another World Series.  Their opponent this...
For several weeks of Fall 2011 The Roundup has had a poll in the bottom corner of its main page asking you, our readers, which music album you were anticipating the most this year. The choices were Blink-182’s Neighborhoods, Drake’s Take Care, Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto, Switchfoot’s Vice Verses, Scott McCreery’s  Clear as Day, and J. Cole’s  Cole World: The...
After a 15-5 drumming of the Detroit Tigers on October 15, 2011, the Texas Rangers completed their defense of the American League title and returned to the World Series. Riding the most impressive display of power in playoff history, the Rangers allowed Nelson Cruz to carry their team to Fall Classic where they will face the St. Louis Cardinals....
In 2007, mentioning the NFC East to any NFL fan evoked visions of a sturdy Philadelphia Eagles team, spearheaded by the versatile Donovan McNabb, speedy Brian Westbrook, and literally the biggest personality in sports, Andy Reid. Fans envisioned a spirited Washington Redskins playoff squad motivated by Hall of Fame coach, Joe Gibbs, by the improved performance of QB Jason Campbell,...
Tom Morello, the guitar player for Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave, made an appearance at Zuccotti Park Thursday morning, October 13, 2011, to play for Occupy Wall Street protesters. "First they ignored you," Morello told the crowd. "Then you got pepper-sprayed and New York found out about it. Then 700 of you got arrested, and the rest of the...
To compare Eminem’s raps in the hip-hop world to Elvis’s songs in the rock and roll world is correct to a degree, but it is largely inaccurate. Certainly, Eminem was the first white rapper since the renowned Beastie Boys to reap the benefits of sales and respect from the hip-hop world, but his impact surely transcended this imprisoning distinction.  When...
