The 'stud' was banging a girl named "Smelly Kelly" because of the odor from her putang.

Peter Gallulo (Shoes) & framed photo of John Shea as a Park Ranger

Shoes has just stolen the poster and taken it with him to new Hampshire where he was living at the time

The poster is of brother John " fatty" Shea, he was a park ranger at Rocky Neck State Park while in high school. His mother took the picture and had it made into a poster

We all loved it so much that we stole it from John's apartment and hung it in our apartment. However, since everyone loved the poster so much, it was regularly stolen by the brothers and went from one house to the other. It became a game and the rules were simple: steal the poster and hang it prominently in your place

Whenever brothers came by for drinks, or a party, they could steal it. Also, a brother could enter your place and steal it even thought you were not present. The poster was always fair game and there were some wild schemes put together to steal it and there were also some wild times making the getaway

The key was to display it and do the bare minimum to retain it, but it was just as much fun to have it stolen and then have to go retrieve it. We would take the picture camping, to weddings, on vacation, etc. This continued well into adulthood. The poster has gone missing and has not been seen in 10 years, no one knows where it is

Paul Tarca related the story that when the 25th class had to carry a shopping cart up West Rock mountain as part of pledging, the brothers were waiting for us at the top. Before the pledge class got to the top, pledge master John Craig got into a scuffle with some guys partying at the top that were not supposed to be there. Big John got them off the mountain by throwing a cinder block through their car windshield
Paul Tarca also remembers going to the frat house on Geoff Terrace, It was always the hot spot on weekends off campus. I can remember paying 3 bucks to attend a 30 keg party.For an extra 5 bucks you could go to the third floor to visit "the doctor"

The "Dr." was a contraption in someones room on the third floor. It was a large funnel with 6-8 surgical hoses coming off it to an oxygen mask. The funnel was filled with bags of weed and was kept lit by a brother with a blowtorch! It cost $5 to get to the third floor. There were always 10-15 people in the room, 5 or 6 waiting to grab the mask from the next person. the window to the room was always open and if you were walking up to the house you would swear the house was burning down! To funny...

As I mentioned this was at the frat house on Goeff Terrace. At that time, Tim Geary was the president, Geoff Baldwin, Ron Longo, Frank Gabrielle I know all lived there. Probably a few others. I got into the frat as a junior. I had played baseball at scsu for 4 years and just didn't have the time to pledge. I hung out with a bunch of Frat guys however and they were always trying to get me to pledge. My junior year my brother Dan attended scsu and I told him it would be a good idea to pledge with my roommate who was a freshman, Pete Suits. They said they would do it if I did it with them so I did. Greatest bond ever, I had that team thing playing baseball but the Phi guys were forever.

To this day we go to Cape Cod every year in August. 40 guys, yes 40! for a golf weekend. This event started many years ago and was a frat/rugby event as many Phi guys played rugby. It has grown to 40 guys over the years and of course there are friends of friends on this trip but it is safe to say there are at least half the crew are Phi brothers. The highlight of the weekend is the rookie naked plunge. any first time golfer on the trip, or any one who misses a year for any reason has to strip down at 5:00 p.m. and run naked into the water. this event is in Wellfleet mass at cahoon hollow beach. Usually 3-5 guys take the plunge. Needless to say not to many miss a year once you go.
