Should Dunk have been suspended?

During The Score television network’s Sept. 26 broadcast of the football game between the Guelph Gryphons and the Western Mustangs, Gryphons quarterback Justin Dunk broke for a 22-yard touchdown rush, ran to one of The Score’s cameras and yelled “Fuck Western!” to the country.Continue...

Diving into water polo

The last time the rugby team played McMaster, it was a cold, wet day on the outskirts of Markham, Ont. and an OUA banner was on the line. Queen’s lost that game, and the ghosts of the past hadn’t left them when they hosted the Marauders at Kingston Field on Saturday afternoon.Continue...

For the good of the team, please keep those butts in the seats

Making my way to Richardson Stadium’s interview area after the frosh week football game between Queen’s and Guelph, I found myself embarrassed answering a newspaper writer from Guelph when he leaned over to me and asked, slightly under his breath so the Queen’s Athletics folks wouldn’t hear him, “Hey, where’d all the students go after the half?”Continue...

En garde

It’s Wednesday afternoon and I enter Duncan McArthur Hall, immediately learning the first two things I’d pick up on what would be a very educational day. First of all, I didn’t know there was a gym over on West Campus. Secondly, I learnt it was the home of the Queen’s fencing team. Seriously, there’s a sign.Continue...
