Wesleyan is EVERYWHERE

Discerning (and disappointed) Wesleyan soccer fans may have noticed that after the US’s grueling 2-3 loss to Brazil in the FIFA Confederations Cup Final, the stadium’s loudspeakers blasted MGMT’s song “Kids” as team USA picked up their Silver medals. This comes as only a small consolation after we squandered a 2-0 halftime lead against a heavily favored Brazilian side, armed with some of the world’s best players.

Congrats to Team USA on a great tournament, despite the loss; congrats to Wesleyan on being fucking everywhere.

    Not a huge MGMT fan, but who cares if Wesleying has a lighthearted obsession with Wesleyan? It’s a Wesleyan student blog, after all. Don’t read it if you don’t care.

    Hey, people, this post was meant to be lighthearted. I doubt the poster actually thought that this was a significant event (the song playing, not the game). It’s the kind of post that you skim, say “huh,” and move on. Not all Wesleying posts need to be meaningful; it is not that kind of blog.

    Yeah, of course we’re full of ourselves.wesleyan is all over the map. thats a fuckin fact.

    of course, for the most part, it’s also true that only we realize it, not the public at large – But it doesn’t matter because it’s something we always have tucked in the back of our heads, that something that gives us that little bit of hubris we need to be #1. You know, because we are better than everyone else.

    I agree with all the nay sayers, #6, #9, #11.

    I have plenty of pride in my alma mater, and I was watching the game, and when the US lost I was bitter and unhappy. There is no way that hearing KIDS play in the stadium background would be any sort of consolation, none at all.

    The fact that this is made into such a mentionable fact on the Wesleying blog, or that it is suggested to be a consolation for the lost is what creates and disdain I have for the Wesleyan community. So full of ourselves to think that a song playing can distract at all from a painful loss. Anyone watching the game and agrees with the author of this wesleying post is clearly not a true sports/soccer fan. Just jumping on the band-wagon now cause it’s the hip thing to do? it shows in your lack of devotion and easy distraction from a painful loss.

    And for the record, that was still an amazing performance by a US team which has been significantly under-dogged for what seems like forever.

    i am proud of my soon-to-be alma mater when something ACTUALLY HAPPENS, not when Kids gets played…. agreed #9, does wesleying need to report every time I walk into any retail store and Kids starts playing? give it a break, plz. it was fun and interesting last summer when MGMT was just on the rise, but now it’s just redundant and lame.

    agreed. wesleyan is not really EVERYWHERE. to say so is quite annoying. maybe it was a good excuse for mentioning the soccer game though.

    i agree with number 6. this kind of “wesleyan in the world” update is so stupid. mgmt is getting big… reporting on every time one of their songs is played in the world is just dumb. i was at urban outfitters and they played “kids.” omg!!!

    number 6, you are a moron. plenty of people know who MGMT is, as well as what Wesleyan is. have some pride in your alma mater for god sake and be happy that fellow students are doing well, rather than being a cynical, depressed, miser.

    dont worry #6, your quarter life crisis will be over soon.

    until then, rest easy that none of us are surprised that tiny little happy things make you scornful.

    Not only does no one know/care where MGMT went to school, but almost no one even knows about Wesleyan.
