MIT Sports Will Continue Their Domination

When I think about MIT my mind instantly goes to their powerhouse sports teams that dominate the NCAA every year. I’m pretty sure that their football team has now won like 8 straight BCS championships right? And who could forget the Fightin’ Scientists as they dominate March Madness year after year, running roughshod over the opponents. See, MIT has sports down to a science.

That’s why this news is so welcome. George Steinbrenner, or at least the zombie corpse of George Steinbrenner made a $1 million donation to MIT yesterday for additional construction in their sports facilities.

“It is our honor and privilege to ensure that future athletes, fans, and the entire MIT community will be able to continue to enjoy the Steinbrenner Stadium for generations to come,” George Steinbrenner said in a statement.

The money will be used to help renovate Steinbrenner Stadium, the money for which was donated by George and his sisters in the 70s in honor of their father, a 1927 graduate of the school.

“This [donation] provides us with funding to upgrade our stadium seating, access areas and working press box,” said Julie Soriero, MIT’s director of athletics, “This will vastly improve Steinbrenner Stadium as it currently exists, making it an outstanding venue in which to compete or watch a game. We are appreciative of the continued generosity from the Steinbrenner family.”

As a native Bostonian, I can’t even count how many afternoons have been spent watching the physical marvels of the MIT sports academies ply their trades. Win after win, championship after championship, MIT has been, and should now long remain, UNSTOPPABLE! Thanks George!
