Men’s baseball to face York in playoffs

Football falters in final seconds

It seems impossible that a football team could be leading a game with zero seconds remaining on the
clock and still lose, but that’s exactly what happened to the Golden Gaels last weekend.

Last Saturday night, the Gaels’ fell to the Waterloo Warriors 14-13 at University Stadium in Waterloo.
A last-second touchdown from Warrior quarterback Jon Morbey capped a thrilling see-saw battle in which the lead changed hands four times and twice in the final two minutes.

American MVP: Jeter or Ortiz?

Love ’em or hate ’em, the New York Yankees’ contention for the World Series is almost as surefire as my housemate’s inability to lock down a Saturday night date.

With a $200 million payroll and eight consecutive AL East Division titles under their belt, how can one expect any less from this squad?

But regardless of these facts, only one Yankee, Alex Rodriguez, has captured the AL MVP title in the last 20 years. Until last year, the superstardom of the Yankee whole has overshadowed the individual accomplishments of its players.Continue...
