I am a black guy that goes to Howard University. Stereotypical, isn't it?
Our school's "Homecoming" for 2007 happens to be this weekend. If you don't know anything about black college homecomings, gather up some dinero, put it in a plastic bag, and make it rain with me after the jump:
Here's the skinny on the Howard University Homecoming:
1. Lots of food, games, and free stuff.
2. Scantily-clad women frolicking about.
3. New artists (attempt to) gain fans and prove their worth by performing at Yardfest.
4. Random sightings of stunt-doubles, 2nd tier actors (think: Morris Chestnut),
Lil' Bow Wow, washed-up NFL players, Antoine Bethea, Tyson Beckford (who?), and other assorted thespians who's careers are gasping for air.
Basically, Homecoming is a mega-palooza that swallows up all of D.C. in its wake. This includes all artists, writers, columnists, perverts, frat boys, students, Congressmen (probably coming for the scantily-clad women)...and bloggers. If I get a post in at any time this weekend, feel free to pat me on the back.
