House-hunting Super Bowl style

SUPER RENTER: Former ASU business student Gabe Ostrovsky sits inside one of the many homes he is renting out to visitors attending the Superbowl in Glendale.

Not all Super Bowl XLII visitors will be staying in hotels next week some will be calling other peoples' homes their own.

Hundreds fill Tempe streets as Middle East standoff wages on

More than 200 students and community members hit the streets of downtown Tempe Saturday night to protest what they see as Israel's inhumane treatment of Palestinians inhabiting the Gaza Strip.

No women, alcohol during ASU fraternity rush week
Alcohol and women two ingredients sometimes associated with Greek life won't be part of rush, when ASU's fraternities invite students to get to know them this week.

Cloverfield Q&A

Sun Devils slip, lose third straight


ASU freshman guard James Harden thought it was a foul. ASU coach Herb Sendek wouldn't say so, but it seemed he thought so.

Ice Devils dominated by UA

There was plenty of motivation for the ASU men's ice hockey club heading into its weekend series at home against intrastate rival Arizona.

Tennis tops Texas
Beautiful weather and a lively crowd were in no short supply Saturday, as the ASU women's tennis team knocked off the Texas Longhorns 4-3 at Whiteman Tennis Center.

ASU takes three straight to finish weekend

ASU swimmers washed away in NorCal
The final road tune-up for the ASU men's and women's swim and dive teams went exactly as planned.

Opinions: Does growing up mean letting go?

Some of you may have noticed that the Phoenix Comic Con occurred this past weekend. It is a convention for fans of games, comics, TV and anime. I enjoyed the weekend there with my friends, browsing merchandise and winning video game competitions, and I have the 12-inch tall Gene Simmons action figure to prove it.

Opinions: Degrading, disrespectful, but with a beat: 'Crank Dat!'

I'm not a fan of most rap music and I certainly don't listen to the radio. Pardon me if I'm a little behind the times.

Well, I'm at least as up with the times as Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa, which I realize doesn't say much. By the standards of a 45-year-old housewife though, I'm really with it.

A hostel away from home


Phoenix is a resort town. Each resort has finely-trimmed, cascading lawns and immaculate, white pool decks. Each is a little oasis that removes guests from the city, from the desert and from all of their surroundings. Everything is just so.

Bouncin' with Father Fred

Father Fred Lucci, director of the All Saints Catholic Newman Center (ASCNC) is easily recognizable around campus. Whether bouncing around or preaching the Word, this ASU alumnus has a couple words of his own for students. This week, SPM discovered we aren't the only ones who hate giving up chocolate for Lent.

A guide to necking
Turtlenecks are no longer just for emergency hickey-coverage. They've been upgraded in the fashion world to an actual wardrobe choice. Now, with their renewed status, turttlenecks are a perfect piece to ride out the rest of winter and transition into spring.

Disappointing Dragonfly
The building on the corner of Mill Avenue and Sixth Street in downtown Tempe has seen a variety of restaurants come and go in the last few years. Dragonfly Vietnamese Kitchen, currently taking up residency there, seems to be an unlikely candidate for permanency.

Hot Spot: Chronic Tacos
Mill Avenue is a haven for divas, drunks and disasters alike. Adding another watering hole to the mix of Tempe bars is nothing new, but a hangout that also serves fresh Mexican food after last-call?
