Counting on Halloween Jessica Ferri ’13 (calculator) and Martin Evelyn ’13 (a Jedi Knight) revel in the night’s activities. It’s a Harvard tradition for a group of freshmen to be named to the First-Year Social Committee (FYSC). The FYSC plans special events throughout the year. This fall, the group hosted the annual Costume Catwalk Oct. 30. Described as an opportunity for freshmen to “schmooze with Dean Dingman,” the event elicited comments as varied as the costumes. It “was one of the most interesting experiences I have had at Harvard so far,” said Chris Goldstein ’13, dressed as a monster from “Where the Wild Things Are.”“My friends and I dressed up as the Village People, and we prepared our costumes from secondhand clothing, things we had lying around our dorm rooms, and what our parents could bring,” said Village People policeman Patrick Wicker ’13.Dean of Freshmen Thomas Dingman, who came dressed as the Mad Hatter, got into the spirit of the event, saying, “Congratulations go to the First-Year Social Committee for giving all of us a chance to be kids again … and to see some serious strutting.”last_img read more


first_imgRubin Kazan (Russia) Al Sadd (Qatar) Xerez (Spain) Udinese (Italy) Lionel Messi recently became one of the few players to reach and surpass the 700-goal mark in his career.It’s not surprising that the Barcelona star, given his amazing scoring record, has found the net consistently against every team he has faced, well almost every club.Messi has faced 78 different teams throughout his career and found the net against 68 of them.10 teams have been defensively astute enough not to let the Argentine magician add to his massive tally against them.The most high profile of these sides is Inter Milan, who Messi has failed to score against in four encounters, including three times in the 2009/2010 season, when Mourinho’s Inter beat Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League semis en route to the title.The other teams he has played against but not scored against include Rubin Kazan, Xerez, Benfica, Udinese, Murcia, Cádiz, Napoli, Al Saad and Gramenet.The encounters span across La Liga, the Champions League, the Copa Del Rey and the Club World Cup.Chelsea were on this list until recently when Messi scored in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge a few years ago.Messi will have a chance to add Napoli to his highlight reel when they face each other in the second leg of their Round of 16 tie in August.All the teams Messi has faced but not scored againstInter Milan (Italy) Cadiz (Spain)center_img Napoli (Italy) Benfica (Portugal) Murcia (Spain) Gramenet (Spain)last_img read more
