Readers: tune in to be heard

By Jonathan Aviles

Going into this whole column thing, I wasn’t sure what to write.
I try every week to give the readers, meaning you, something
interesting to read. Something that inspires some thought, or
brings out the passionate emotion many Americans portray on Sundays
during the NFL season.

I’ve written about our beloved Broncos, Manny-mania and the
Dodgers Kobe and LeBron. Is there anything else that you would like
me to discuss?

I’m open to just about any subject that is related to sports.
I’ve had one too many instances where someone on campus comes up to
me and complains to me about the content of the sports page. Well
here is your chance. Just e-mail me what you have to say and if
enough of you actually do this, you’ll get what you want to read in
next week’s issue.

You know what? Let’s open this up to more than just my column.
Send me ideas about any article that you would like to see at all
on the sports page.

This is your paper. It’s called the student newspaper for a
reason, and here at The Poly Post we write and discuss subjects
that students should know about and want to read.Our goal is to

ideas. I am simply re-stating my job criteria to you so it becomes

Even if you don’t care about sports, yet read this column, shoot
me an e-mail. It would take no more than five minutes to think
about a topic and type it out. You can’t use the excuse of not
knowing my e-mail because it’s right at the bottom of this

No offense Cal Poly, but I haven’t received more than three
e-mails all quarter and one was due to an error on my part (which I
didn’t mind). This school is widely known for having students that
simply don’t care about anything outside of what classes they’re

While that’s good and all, there’s more to college than just
your classes.

If you disagree with me then I pity you. This is as they say
“the best four years of our lives.” Enjoy yourself, express your
feelings and see how far it takes you.

But while you’re still in school taking classes you don’t need,
because that’s what most of us do here anyway, why read something
you don’t want to?
