10 Things I Want To See In 2013

10 Things I Want To See In 2013

In no particular order, these are the things I want to see (or see more of) in 2013 10. NHL I want the NHL back. I want to see Habs and Leaf fans arguing over their last meeting. I want a bar to get packed with people, all stretching their necks to try and glimpse a corner of the ice in a section of the screen just to say they witnessed that goal. I want the NHL back, and I’m not even a die-... »

Win of the Month: Sports

Win of the Month: Sports

When someone mentions the month of April to a university student, a big red sign pops up in their head with “EXAMS” written across it in bright, blinking, white lights. It’s horrible. April reminds me of rainy days stuck inside Weldon with no hope of leaving until 3000 more chapters are read, highlighted, learned and processed. It also reminds me of warm, sunny days that are spen... »

The Final Four!

The Final Four!

What did I tell you? March Madness never ceases to amaze me… and everyone else I know. The overtime, the buzzer beater shot, the referees… oh, the referees, they all make March Madness very exciting and this years’ tournament is no different. Before the tournament even began, we saw Syracuse lose it’s best player in Fab Melo due to “scholastic issues” (also know... »

The Madness Continues…

The Madness Continues…

Take a deep breath and relax. The first weekend of NCAA March Madness has come and gone leaving us with four days to reflect on one of the most shocking starts to a tournament since the 64-team bracket was introduced. Forget the fact that your girlfriend, who picked winners based on team colors, and your sister, who thought Lehigh was a ‘cool’ name, both have better brackets than you do. The field... »

March Madness 2012: An Overview

March Madness 2012: An Overview

Some people countdown the days until Christmas. For others, the rather narcissistic ones in my opinion, until their birthday. Some students claim Homecoming or St. Patrick’s Day as their favourite holidays. However, for me and many others across Canada and the United States, our favourite holiday neither  mean a day off work nor home decorations. My favourite holiday, is not a day, actually,... »

How Sports Influenced Pop Culture

How Sports Influenced Pop Culture

I love end of the year countdowns, especially when they’re about sports. The top dunks, the top catches and the top runs are all thrown into a list that makes even my mom want to watch the sports channel–Thank God. These do a great job of showcasing everything that happened to sports on the court, ice, field, whatever. But what happened off the playing area? How did sports influence pop cult... »

Mistake of the Week- Your’s, Mine and Everyone Else’s Bracket

Mistake of the Week- Your’s, Mine and Everyone Else’s Bracket

I wrote an article a  few weeks back about how this time of year was my favourite time – and to be more specific, March Madness is my favourite. This year’s madness has not let me down. This year’s tournament has been exciting every step of the way. Despite me not having one team in the Final Four, (but come on, who does?!) I’ve still managed to watch as many games as possi... »

Lego March Madness

The madness has begun (see our other article “The BEST Time Of The Year”). There have been some big upsets thus far…like when my mom made me watch basketball instead of Gossip Girl…I was really UPSET…get it…upset? Annnddd that’s the last time I make a March Madness joke. Anywho…who doesn’t love the greatest moments of March Madness re-enacted u... »

Against the Grain: Sorting out March Madness 2010

We may be less than two weeks away from an insomnia pandemic induced by dribbles and jumpers, but it does help if we have some foresight about the Big Dance before we dive in. »
