Once upon a time...
Realizing the need to wax nostalgic, Gazette
sports presents the first of a year-long series of childhood
flashbacks to relive the sporting goodness brought to us through
video games, films and TV shows centered around sports. Enjoy.
Mustangs seek revenge
It won't be hard for the Western Mustangs
football team to get motivated for Saturday's game against the
Queen's Golden Gaels (2-0) at TD Waterhouse Stadium at 2 p.m.
Outside the Western
We don't give the middle finger!
Below is what happened in the world of professional
sports last week:
Detroit Tigers pitcher Mike Maroth became
the first pitcher since Brian Kingman in 1980 to lose 20 games
in an MLB season. The loss came in an 8-6 loss to the Blue Jays
on Friday night.
Letters from the edge
In lieu of e-mail, letter writing sent
through the age-old process of mailing has all but disappeared.
In homage to pigeons and mail people (equality my friends),
we at The Gazette's sports department decided each week we would
send a letter to a worthy recipient.
The Ontario University Athletics announced Western will host
the 2004 Queen's Cup on Mar. 13 and 14, 2004. It will be the
third straight year the men's hockey championship is held here
at Thompson Athletic Complex.
