The 2016-2017 Viking Saga will provide a website that brings an interactive source of online journalism, providing coverage on school and athletic events going on throughout the East Lyme community. We will use multimedia to entertain the viewer through opinion based articles that go beyond the print edition. The website will be a place where students share their opinion and promote students discussion and voice.
The vikingsaga.net provides a news source that takes pride in being 100 percent accurate and fair. We enjoy informing our audience as well as being a entertaining website that anybody can utilize.
We are willing to take on any story that we deem is important to students. Although some stories can be difficult to handle we will never shy away from an issue that affects our community, whether good news or bad.
Viking spirit is what drives us to work hard in informing our readership. We encourage the spread of pride in our school and what we stand for, and as always, "GO VIKES!"
It's only November and it seems like the new school year is still adding up too quickly. Between school, social life, and staying active, combined with any hobbies you enjoy, it feels like finding time to do everything you'd like to is rare nowadays.

Senioritis is so true. Last year, when I was a junior, I thought the seniors used this disease, “senioritis”, as an excuse to not do their homework that was due next block. However, as I sit here writing this blog post it is taking every fiber in my being not to leave this school, go home, and take a nap. Senioritis is real. This disease makes the simplest tasks, like typing 200 words for Saga, almost impossible.
On the last day of the season the Boston Red Sox went into the playoffs with a 22.5% chance to win the World Series (based on http://www.baseballprospectus.com/odds/index_final.php). Now they find themselves packing up their bags for a long winter, leaving myself and many scratching their heads. The Sox were swept in a best of 5 series against a depleted Cleveland Indians roster.
A common complaint among all sports fans is that All Star breaks tend to suck, with a few exceptions. The Pro Bowl is just an absolute joke at this point. So I have devised a few ideas for improving the time of the year that is supposed to celebrate the best preforming athletes in the country.
- I hope I never eat a banana (those things gross me out).
- I never get an android phone...again.
- I never live in the U.S. if Trump is elected, after seeing the debate last night my gut feeling has been confirmed: living on the moon would be less dangerous than living on the planet
