She wants to be known as an advocate for the elderly, but students at Northeastern State University know 71-year-old Muriel Saunders as their homecoming queen…

Why do I get the feeling that this is going to be passed round as glurge really soon?

Nice that they crowned her I guess, beats some weee dollybird, more impressive that she is actually at university though

Yay for her!

What exactly is homecoming, anyway?  I have yet to figure that out.

It’s when the alumni COME HOME to their school and celebrate the first home football game.

Ah.  So it’s only for football?  Nobody cares about soccer, or ping-pong, or whatever?

I’ve never seen a homecoming pingpong…but I think it’s b/c school and football season start in the fall.  So, the 2 just naturally fell together.
