Ticket Giveaway: NKOTB Encourage Fans to Go Commando Friday to their Concert

Pop music icons The New Kids On The Block are teaming up with
Cottonelle to “clean up” the concert scene. In an effort to spread the
word about just how clean you can get
by using Cottonelle with CleanRipple texture, the band and the brand
are launching a movement to end the throwing of underwear on stage at
concerts, and telling people to Go Cottonelle, Go Commando. As some of
music’s biggest heartthrobs, NKOTB are no strangers
to having undergarments tossed their way during performances.

At the concert there will be a photo booth for you and your friends to take home a memorable shot

To enter the contest to win a pair of tickets to Friday’s NKOB, TLC and Nelly’s concert at Wells Fargo.

The Temple University Board of Trustees has recently announced that they
will no longer be funding several sports programs, one being men’s
gymnastics. Temple gymnastics has been a pillar to Temple University
with its academic and athletic excellence. We have produced national
champions, world team members, and Olympians since our inaugural season.
Please help us SAVE OUR SPORT!

Over the weekend the alumni gathered as they do annually, to attend the first meet of the season, a bitter sweet season as it’s the last. 
The Alumni, friends and supporters are rallying ways to raise funds to save the program. One way is to do a calendar to raise awareness to the dire situation. The idea of the calendar was conceived by Dash Sears and Clay Stewart.
Photographer is Michael Thomas a seasoned sports photographer who flew in from NH to shoot.
  • If someone wants to get involved, inquire about donations, or ask questions about the calendar, please email Clay Stewart at forest.clay.stewart@gmail.com.
  • We have one of the most dedicated alumni bases with a 25%
    donation rate, compared to a 7% donation rate of the overall Temple
    alumni base.
  • Our team is self-sustained with a combination of tuition money and donations.  We are not an expense to the university. 
  • The team operates on a budget less than the helmet and chinstrap budget of the Temple Football Team.
 Susie Celek stopped by to lend her support
 and give the guys some encouragement
  • The team’s GPA is the highest of all teams at the university for the past 3 years. 
  • The team has one of the best winning records of all team’s at the university. 
  • Team has been around since 1926.

president and board members visit the Temple University Men’s Gymnastics
Facebook page. (Paige Ozaroski took this photo)
On Saturday the boys did a photo spread for the calendar at the Goldtex Apartments in Center City. Slice pizza provided the sustenance for the enduring and endless posing.
