When you’re donating your threads to Casa De Los Ninos, taking off your clothes has never been so easy



or some college students, Thursday night is all about the shirking of responsibilities in lieu of drinking one’s self into oblivion. But instead, with 125 of my fellow students, I chose to get naked. Last night, ZonaZoo held its third annual Undie Run on the UA Mall. While the event was unofficially held in 2009, ZonaZoo took it upon themselves to reach out and connect with the UA community by making them strip down to their skivvies. All clothing worn to the event, and subsequently removed, is donated to Casa De Los Ninos, benefitting children in need. While I rarely need a reason to take my clothes off, this was about as good a time as any. As I arrived at the Mall, I was greeted by Starr Pass pool party amounts of skin, set in a brisk fall night rather than one hundred degrees. With Psy’s godawful “Gangnam Style,” LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem,” and some Ke$ha song that I didn’t care enough about to recognize, the raucous atmosphere was set. For reasons unbeknownst to the crowd, and what seemed

relatively sports related, and when neither side could name a freshman UA basketball player to clinch the contest, the boys chose to go with “Dave York.” If there had been a tomato in hand, I would have aimed for someone’s head. They quickly changed their answer to Gabe York, won the round, and we all headed to the south side of the Mall to get ready to run.

Let it be known: we have an attractive campus of men and women alike. It was definitely evidenced as we sat poised and ready for the signal to start. Girls chose to either wear sports bras and booty shorts or something akin to full-blown lingerie, and the guys dressed up to dress down in boxer briefs. I chose standard boxers, which proved to be a poor choice later on. At the drop of a flag, we took off down the Mall. Running alongside some of my friends helped to ease a bit of the awkwardness of the spectators that lined the Mall in patches, cheering us on and likely ogling the fairer sex. When they shouted, I shouted back. At one point I definitely yelled “This is America,” as I’ve likely never felt more free on a run. However, my underwear foresight was lacking. The morning of the event, I strategically planned my boxer choice, opting for black Ralph Lauren boxers with gold stitching and green horse logos. My rationale was that I would look as classy as possible while running through campus. I fretted over that choice all day like a girl about to show off

Jeff Wild and ‘Chelsea Lately’ friends host benefit show at the Fox Theatre



ucson’s comedy culture is getting some star power this weekend, as the cast of popular E! Entertainment network program “Chelsea Lately” is set to take the stage at the Fox Tucson Theatre this Saturday for a charity event. Chris Franjola, Fortune Feimster, Sarah Colonna and Jeff “Jiffy” Wild, who have all appeared on the latenight program since its debut in 2007, will be performing au gratis at the “Broken Halos” comedy show, which benefits Angel Charity. The local organization raises money for children in need, according to Amanda Saffer, the charity’s general chairwoman. Wild is also Saffer’s brother-in-law and spent most of his childhood in Tucson, attending Salpointe Catholic High School. After graduating from the University of Southern California in 2001, he eventually began working at the E! Entertainment network on shows like “The Soup,” “E! News” and “True Hollywood Story.” More than five years ago, Wild’s boss came forward with a proposition: to work in the art department of a new program hosted by comedian Chelsea Handler. “I started working on [the show], and it was supposed to be just like an 8-week run,” Wild said. “But the show just got so successful and popular that it just kept going and going.” After getting better acquainted with Handler off the set, it didn’t take long for Wild to venture outside of the art department. But when she offered him a spot on the round table — the section of the show where Handler discusses pop culture and current events with a group of comedians and other guests — he graciously declined. Handler, however, wouldn’t take no for an answer. “A couple weeks later the booker for the show came up to me and was like, ‘Hey, Chelsea booked you for the table, you’re on in two weeks.’ And I was like ‘Oh, OK,’” Wild said with a laugh. After the round table appearance, Wild started appearing on the show regularly and was eventually made a writer. He also tours with other cast members when the show isn’t taping, performing both spoken and musical comedy as part of an opening set.

Describing the once-foreign world of stand up comedy as both “horrifying and really amazing,” Wild attributes part of his and his castmates’ “steady incline of fortune” on the show to Handler. “She’s been really great,” Wild added. “She’s like, the most generous, helpful, coolest person I’ve ever known.” So when the chance came to spread a bit of that good fortune back in Tucson via his sister-in-law and Angel Charity, Wild didn’t hesitate to reach out to his co-workers for a good cause. “I wasn’t really sure if they’d be interested in helping out because everybody’s doing it for free and giving up a weekend,” Wild said. “But everyone I asked said yes and I actually had to turn some people away.” Saffer said the charity still needs to raise $855,000 to meet its goal this year, which will aid its two chosen beneficiaries, Our Family Services and The Tucson Nursery School. All money raised will go toward building a new crisis center for children ages 12-17, equipped with services that are unique to the county, according to Saffer, and retiring the mortgage of the latter organization so it can “serve more infants and toddlers.” Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Angel Charity has helped approximately 1 million children in Pima County by raising more than $21 million, which funded 68 projects that directly assisted community children in need, according to an economic impact report conducted in 2011 by Eller College of Management students. Saffer said she is “so grateful” for the enthusiastic response she’s seen from both their sponsors and the general community. “We do our due diligence,” she said. “We just really make sure that we take care of our donors and make sure that their money is going to the right places.” Wild said the audience can expect a night of fast-paced jokes and “constant laughing,” but said he’s still feeling the nerves of returning home to friends and family on such a high profile note. “But, it’s not about me,” he added. “It’s about the charity.”


JEFF WILD, a cast member on E! Network’s “Chelsea Lately,” brings his comedic senses and co-stars to the Fox Tucson Theatre on Saturday night. The comedians are all performing for free, with all ticket proceeds to benefit Angel Charity.

If you go: Angel Charity’s “Broken Halos” Comedy Show with the cast of “Chelsea Lately” at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Fox Tucson Theatre, located at 17 W. Congress St. Ticket proceeds go directly to children in need, and are priced at $20 for students (2-for-1 special), general $35-60 and $90 for VIP tickets, which includes a meet-and-greet with the comedians before the show. Tickets can be purchased online at the Fox website, www. or by phone (520) 547-3040.

Unsurprisingly, The Modeens turned out to be just as adept at folk as everything else they have tried. “We’ve actually taken a few of the songs from that release and recorded them for an album we made at WaveLab Studios about a month ago,” said Laboz.

It’s OK. Wear what you want. ALEXANDRA GIROUX


here is a time and a place for thigh-high fishnets, and it is absolutely Halloween. It’s that glorious night for college girls to take on any type of costume and show as much skin as possible. But why do we dress this way? For most of the girls that will be running around with lingerie and cat ears on, it could be their only night to be excused (if you will) for giving the impression that they might be a streetwalker, and perhaps an expensive one at that. In their daily life, they have morals, they dress accordingly. It’s the average girl, who just happens to have a killer bod, that people haven’t really noticed before. Sometimes it just feels right to slip on some lingerie and animal ears for a night. Then, when someone asks you what you are, the obvious response will be clear: “I’m a mouse, duh!” Happy Halloween, and go get ‘em, girls.


Local haunts to hit PAIGE POLLARA

It’s that time of year again, the time for all that Halloween on a college campus entails: risqué costumes, hoards of candy and an abundance of blood and gore. With Halloween on a Wednesday this year, the question remains, “What is there to do in Tucson to celebrate?” No matter what your idea of a ghastly gathering may be, there’s something for you.


The SlaughterHouse

When: Sept. - Oct. 28 Hours: 6 p.m. - 10 p.m./12 a.m.; check the website for details Admission: $25

When: Oct. 25 - 28; 31 Hours: 7 p.m. - 10 p.m./12 a.m.; check the website for details Admission: $7

Get ready to lose your voice, because Nightfall at Old Tucson will be one of the scariest haunts you’ll ever come across. Without giving too much away, the entire Town Square is turned into various, outrageous sets that will have the manliest of men running away. Clowns, chainsaws, ghosts, creepy music; you name it, it’ll be there waiting for you.

Bring a buddy, a pal or even a whole slew of people to the SlaughterHouse, because you’ll definitely need to hold someone’s hand. Zombies, clowns, butchers and ghosts, oh my. These are some of the most frightening haunts not only in Tucson, but in the country. The SlaughterHouse has four haunts this year that range all the way from moderately scary to “you’ll have nightmares for a week” extreme.

Yuma’s Haunted Dungeon


When: Oct. 25-26 Hours: 8 p.m. - 12 a.m. Admission: Donations for the Tucson Food Bank and/ or school supplies for Jumpstart A tradition here at the UA, Yuma Residence Hall puts on a program called the “Haunted Dungeon” every Halloween. Each year the hall council picks a theme and decorates the building like professionals. This year’s theme is Midnight at the Carnival. If you’re living on campus without a car, it’s a great way to get into the Halloween spirit without going too far.


When: Oct. 26 Hours: 7 p.m. - 10 p.m. Admission: Free Another campus friendly alternative to celebrate Halloween, Hoggo-ween has been a tradition for the Hopi and Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall council for years now. It’s a great way to meet other students living on campus while also being able to rock your awesome Halloween costume. Every year there is a costume contest and plenty of food, as well as music and dancing.









ucson Tamale Company is exactly the kind of restaurant UA students should seek out. It is the perfect changeup from fast food and the Student Union grub because it offers something those places can’t: charm. The staff is incredibly friendly and can be seen referring to regulars by first name. The restaurant is located in a quaint and unassuming space on Broadway Boulevard, just east of Tucson Boulevard, only a short drive or bike ride from campus. The walls are covered in art by Melo Dominguez, depicting scenes of Dia de los Muertos skeletons and other themes that are near and dear to Tucson. The tamales taste like they’re home cooked, but with a more clever and complex taste. There is even a viewing window into the kitchen so customers can watch as their tamales are made. Tucson Tamale Company’s salsa, masa de maíz, guacamole and all of the tamale fillings are made in-house, making the entire dining experience

much more local and delicious. Employees at the establishment are willing to answer any questions a diner may have about the tamale he or she is about to eat. One tamale is $2.95. Two cost $5.59 and a side of beans and rice or chips and guacamole can be added for $6.95. The guacamole tastes incredibly fresh and is definitely worth the extra dollar. All of the sides at Tucson Tamale Co. are vegan-friendly, and it even offers several different kinds of vegan and vegetarian tamales. The New Delhi and the Puerto Rico variations aren’t traditional tamales by any means. The New Delhi tastes of Indian spices, flavored with a yellow curry and a medley of vegetables. The Puerto Rico is roasted plantains wrapped in yam masa and is perfect for anyone who is a fan of Caribbean food. In the way of vegetarian tamales, the Tucson tamale and the Madison take the cake. The Madison is delicious because of the way in which the black beans and the

spices interact with one another to form an intricate and powerful flavor. The Tucson packs a punch and works excellently with the “hot” level of salsa. Couple this with the fact that the Tucson tamale is filled with warm, melting cheese, and it becomes clear why the Tucson tamale is a must-try item. There are still a lot of traditional tamale options, such as the Arizona tamale — which features spicy chipotle beef — and the Santa Fe, featuring pork loin, green chile and cheese. As well as tamales, Tucson Tamale Co. serves breakfast. Breakfast includes such options as chorizo or “soy-rizo,” breakfast burritos, pancakes, huevos rancheros and the tamale omelet.

For Tucson cab drivers, construction, parking issues aren’t helping anything


BETWEEN COLLEGE STUDENTS and long shifts, cab drivers are facing new challenges with parking citations and construction.


NOELLE HARO-GOMEZ/Arizona Daily Wildcat

WILBUR SHOWS a student who’s boss at Thursday night’s Undie Run.

The SunLink Tucson Modern Streetcar project will ultimately serve as an efficient transportation service throughout the Fourth Avenue and Tucson downtown area. But for now, the project’s construction is causing many parking and transportation issues, especially for cab companies. Neal Hoover, of Tucson Taxi Services, expressed his frustrations with the ongoing difficulty of parking anywhere without receiving citations from ParkWise, a program run through the city which manages resident and non-resident on street permit parking programs. ParkWise has made it almost impossible to temporarily park within the perimeters of Tucson’s most popular night life establishments according to Hoover, giving tickets of $188 on a regular basis for cabs waiting near the establishments for pick-up calls. The construction is taking over the majority of cab drivers’ usual

parking spots, giving them no place to park and unload. This dilemma has been heavily affecting Tucson cab companies since the beginning of the summer, leaving drivers with no other choice but to park illegally, leading to regular citations and extremely expensive tickets. Cab drivers have made a conscious effort not to park in front of fire hydrants, red zones or handicap spaces, but they are still being penalized for unavoidably parking illegaly. $188 for a parking ticket is bad enough for one citation, but cab drivers, according to Hoover, have been receiving them on multiple occasions. “If this problem continues I won’t be around here for much longer,” Hoover said. The prospects of the parking situation improving do not seem to be in favor of Tucson’s cab companies, as the construction will continue into next year. Not only are cab drivers being charged for parking illegally, but their demand for business is declining as well.

“Our income has been cut in half in comparison to last year’s revenue,” Hoover said. Hoover has previously contacted ParkWise asking to schedule a brainstorming meeting to remedy the problem, however ParkWise has not yet yielded any leeway in parking restraints. If there are no improvements Hoover plans on calling a meeting between Tucson cab companies to propose certain ideas that could benefit their businesses. “I’ve drawn up a preliminary plan of action that we can submit to the city board as far as a remedy to this,” Hoover said. His plan is to ask the city and business owners of O’Malley’s, The Rec, The District, Gentle Ben’s, Mahoney’s and Dirtbags for two parking spots per business that cab companies can make into a taxi stand from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. Hoover said he hopes this proposition will help diminish the Tucson cab companies’ ongoing parking complications and restore their pre-construction success.

rizona isn’t supposed to defeat USC on Saturday. Then again, they weren’t supposed to three years ago either. In 2009, Arizona traveled to USC to take on a favored Trojans team. I was a freshman at the time, and not yet an Arizona Daily Wildcat staff member. Four friends and I decided to make the trip. We squeezed into my friend Evan’s Jeep and drove the seven hours to Santa Monica, where my other friend, Justin, lives. At just 5-foot-8, 150-pounds (at the time), I was forced to squeeze between two guys in the back seat who were taller than 6 feet. We didn’t arrive in Los Angeles until about 1 a.m., and the game was at 12:30 p.m. that afternoon. I was tired, cranky and didn’t really expect much of a game for the UA against an overhyped Trojans squad. Two weeks earlier, I was a part of the Zona Zoo crowd that preemptively stormed the field against Oregon, only to see the Wildcats falter in double overtime. I hail from the Philadelphia-area — not exactly the most optimistic sports region of the country — and I really just wanted to see the Coliseum for the first time. When we arrived at the stadium, we discovered our seats were in the last of 93 rows at the stadium. There were a few Arizona fans scattered nearby, but overall the stadium was surprisingly (at least to me) empty. Clearly, Southern Californians don’t think much of the Wildcats. Not many teams’ fans in the Pac-12 do. The game started and the Wildcats scored an early touchdown on a pass from former UA quarterback Nick Foles. After three quarters, it was 14-14, then halfway through the fourth USC took a 17-14 lead on a field goal. Arizona got the ball back and worked its way into USC territory. Then, Foles found receiver Juron Criner on the left sideline, and the Wildcats’ all-time leader in touchdown catches stretched and fell across the goal line for the go-ahead touchdown. An eerie silence fell over the Coliseum as the Wildcats closed out the game with head coach Mike Stoops’ first, and only, victory over the Trojans in his tenure at Arizona. The Wildcats clinched their best regular season in 10 years, and I sat there, in row 93, in disbelief, as USC fans filed out of the stadium. A lot has changed since 2009. Stoops, Foles, Criner and my youth are all gone. Now Arizona has Rich Rodriguez, Matt Scott and Ka’Deem Carey, and I have significantly more facial hair. As much as I would like to delve into the progression of my beard from when I was 19 to 22, the changes in the fabric of the Arizona Wildcats football team is much more interesting. Just four players who saw action in that game remain: linebacker Jake Fischer, defensive end Dominique Austin, kicker John Bonano and fullback/linebacker Taimi Tutogi. That quartet recorded just two statistics of note — Fischer had a tackle and Bonano four kickoffs. Arizona’s offense is the most prolific in the Pac-12, and the Wildcats finally have a consistent running game with Carey, which complements a stellar passing game. Saturday’s game will not be another low-scoring affair — Arizona scores 39.1 points per game, and USC 34.9 The Trojans are stacked. The thought of Arizona’s defense trying to contain quarterback Matt Barkley, running back Silas Redd and receivers Marqise Lee and Robert Woods is a scary one. But, the UA is coming off a 52-17 blowout against UW, who only lost to USC by 10 points. The Trojans have Oregon coming to the Coliseum next week, so they might be looking ahead. The game is at Arizona Stadium, and is the Wildcats’ first afternoon home game of the season, meaning it should be filled with fans. Arizona probably won’t win this game, but it can. And if it does, at least I don’t have to drive seven hours to see it. — Zack Rosenblatt is the sports editor. He can be reached at or on Twitter via @ZackBlatt.


number of Arizona starters who were ranked either four or five-star recruits — receiver Dan Buckner and linebacker Marquis Flowers

He said it “It’s a big opportunity for me. I really just want to go out there and win. He’s a great quarterback, a great leader of the team and it’s going to be a good game.” — quarterback Matt Scott about facing USC quarterback Matt Barkley tyler besh/arizona Daily Wildcat

LINEBACKER MARQUIS FLOWERS is one of just a few players who were offered a scholarship by USC out of college. Flowers said he was surprised about the low number, but expects his teammates to use that as further motivation.

KYLE JOHNSON At the end of practice on Tuesday, head coach Rich Rodriguez gathered the team together for the final huddle before sending them home for the night. Rodriguez posed a question to his players: Who was offered a scholarship to play at Southern California? “I think three of them raised their hand, and two of them were probably lying,” Rodriguez said. Arizona currently has the fifth-best offense in the nation, but the gap in pedigree between the Trojans and the Wildcats is stark. Quarterback Matt Scott, running back Ka’Deem Carey and receiver Austin Hill have all put up top20 numbers this season, but not one was offered a scholarship from USC. The lack of respect is becoming a battle cry for the Wildcats. “There’s a big chip on the shoulder because it’s good competition playing the best of the best,” said linebacker Sir Thomas Jackson, a walk-on. “So that’ll be a big chip, and plus I want to get people back, show I can play with four or five-star recruits.” Rankings out of high school aren’t necessarily cut and dry, but the difference between the talent the two teams capture via recruiting is staggering, especially considering the sanctions the NCAA placed on USC in 2010, leaving them bowl-ineligible for two years. Since 2008, the year Scott and other redshirt seniors came to Arizona, the Wildcats’ recruiting classes have been, on average, 44th in the nation, according to USC has been just a tad higher. Since 2008 the Trojans have been fifth in recruiting, including the No. 1 class in 2010. “They’re phenomenally talented,” Rodriguez said.

“They do a great job recruiting and we want to catch them in that point.” For the 2013 recruiting season, the Arizona coaching staff has done a good job assembling the 23rd class in the nation. But even with the early jump, Arizona won’t catch USC’s No. 1 class. “Stars don’t mean anything,” cornerback Derrick Rainey said. “Those stars, you get those in high school — but once you come into college, this is another level.” The talent gap isn’t a new obstacle for the Wildcats to overcome — USC has had elite talent since former coach Pete Carroll took over in 2001. But with Arizona giving young walk-ons playing time, such as Jackson and injured safety Jared Tevis, the perceived talent pales in comparison. The Trojan passing attack is led by Matt Barkley (No. 5 overall in 2009), Robert Woods (No. 6 overall in 2010) and Marqise Lee (No. 36 in 2011). “Everyone’s got Division I players, obviously,” said linebacker Jake Fischer, a three-star recruit in 2009. “But these guys have round-level talent, you know what I mean. You got to cut down on mistakes, you got to know where they’re trying to hit you, like I said. And just run to the ball, man.” Linebacker Marquis Flowers, Arizona’s only top100 recruit since 2008, was a four-star player out of high school and made an official visit to USC when Carroll was still in charge. During Tuesday’s practice, Flowers was one of the players to raise his hand, and said he was surprised by the number of players that the Trojans recruited from the UA. “I was expecting more. I didn’t really realize it,” he said. “I think it’s going to motivate the guys, especially guys like [Jackson] who had to walk on.”

Wildcats’ offense doesn’t need to be perfect, just close to it CAMERON MOON

USC QUARTERBACK Matt Barkley leads a prolific offense that the UA defense might struggle to contain.

USC’s offensive talents are welldocumented in quarterback Matt Barkley contending for the Heisman, and also because of All-American receivers Robert Woods and Marqise Lee. It’s no secret that Arizona’s defense has struggled this season, especially against teams that run a traditional, run-first system with two tight ends (See: Stanford and Oregon State). Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez doesn’t believe the Wildcats will have to play a perfect game against the Trojans, but the margin of error must be smaller than usual. The Wildcats cannot afford to go 0-for-6 in the red zone against USC, as they did against Oregon. Arizona also cannot afford to give up a double-digit fourth quarter lead for the third time this season, as it did against both Oregon State and Stanford. “The margin for error is very thin,” Rodriguez said. “When we have a chance to get a play like we did on special teams [a 63-yard punt return touchdown against Washington] or get a turnover on defense, to us, it’s really important for us to take advantage of it.” It sounds simple enough, but those opportunities don’t appear too often against the Trojans’ defense. However, Arizona quarterback Matt Scott remains confident. “There are some things I think we can do on offense to keep them on their toes,” Scott said. “We’ll push the tempo like we have the last few games.” USC is in the top five in the Pac-12 for total defense, pass defense and rushing

defense, and allows just 16.7 points per game, 22.4 fewer than the Wildcats average as an offense. Sophomore running back Ka’Deem Carey has rushed for more than 100 yards in three straight games, and in five of seven games this season. USC allows more than 100 yards per game, but just barely — 109.6. Carey has a knack for starting slow in games, only rushing for more than 30 yards in the first half against Washington last week. “Ka’Deem makes you tackle him. He has incredible balance,” Rodriguez said. “I have had a couple guys that are close to this, but Ka’Deem, on a consistent basis, has been able to show that. It is a lot of fun to coach him, because he runs the same way in practice.” That could put more pressure on Scott, who has shown hesitation to run against opponents that rank highly in run defense. Against Oregon, Oregon State and Stanford, Scott rushed for only 32 yards and no scores. All three are in the top five in the conference in run defense. Rodriguez said the Washington game was Arizona’s “cleanest game up front” and that the line has held it together well, despite injuries to “our two most important offensive linemen,” in seniors Trace Biskin and Kyle Quinn. The loss of Biskin and Quinn has led to increased playing time for freshman Cayman Bundage and senior Addison Bachman. On the season, the line has allowed 12 sacks on Scott, fifth-best in the conference. “I think the guys have competed,” Rodriguez said. “I’m proud of the way they hung in there. We still have a long way to go up front.”
