Students can have fun at a Lansing Lugnuts game this summer

By Geoff Preston gpreston@statenews.com East Lansing is like many college towns in the United States, when the stress of finals week is over many of the students who populated the town leave for home or internships.  For the students who are in town, many summers have included a night or afternoon at Cooley Law School Stadium for a Lansing Lugnuts game. The Lugnuts are the triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays and offer beer and other food deals throughout the week that radio broadcaster Jesse Goldberg-Strassler said are a key to attracting students on a budget. Thursday night is known as "Thirsty Thursday" where beers are two dollars.

COLUMN: Spring game has become a cultural phenomenon

By Geoff Preston gpreston@statenews.com This Saturday green and white will fill the campus, grills will be lit and people will come from all across the state by the thousands to watch MSU play football. That might sound odd, considering the calendar says April and not September. Saturday will mark the annual Green and White game, which accounts for a glorified scrimmage in Spartan Stadium to send everyone into a football frenzy. About time too, the season is only a little more than four months away. Spring games across the country have become a spectate, what you will see in East Lansing on what is expected to be a cold, rainy Saturday afternoon will probably be tame in comparison to other places across the country. In Columbus, Ohio 99,391 people came out to see the defending national champion Ohio State Buckeyes play a game against each other.
