After four years as reigning champs, ASU finally managed to beat us at something. In the annual ASU versus UA blood drive, ASU stole our crimson crown by bringing in 1,081 pints of blood. We only managed to draw out 1,019 pints of blood. Think that's bad? Last year, we donated 1,455 pints of blood to the Red Cross. This year's total was about 70 percent of that.
Never fear, UA fans, we needn't relinquish the title just yet. The American Red Cross, Greek Life and Kappa Sigma fraternity house have come up with a plan. The blood drive has been extended one week so that we could try to erase the pint deficit. Tomorrow, at the Kappa Sigma fraternity house, 1423 E. First St., Red Cross volunteers will collect more blood from anyone willing to offer up their arms. Be there.
Of course, ASU is whining something about how they've won fair and square and we're cheating.
