Homecoming game a must-win for Mustangs

There's no better way to pump up a rowdy Homecoming crowd than with a great game of football.

Football and Homecoming are two events that seem synonymous and with this year's Homecoming expected to be one of the biggest ever, Western alumni, staff and students are all expecting an equally big football game this Saturday against the Ottawa Gee-Gees.


Outside the Western gates

Below is what happened in the world of professional sports last week:


Once upon a time: Field of Dreams

"If you build it, they will come."

That well-known line of dialogue is what most people remember about the 1989 classic Field of Dreams. Directed by Philip Alden Robinson and starring Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones, Field is a story about an Iowa corn farmer named Ray Kinsella (Costner), who starts hearing voices. Kinsella interprets the enigmatic message as a command to build a baseball field in the middle of his corn crops.


Interuniversity Sport has long history at Western

After 125 years, Western is obviously a school rich in history and tradition.

A large part of that history lies in sport. Sports have been a huge part of life at Western and in the City of London for many years.


No slowin' down for Mustangs' Drew Soleyn
Running back controls punishing ground game

Drew Soleyn is hella tough.

"Drew is probably our toughest guy," says Mustangs head coach Larry Haylor. "Pound for pound, ounce for ounce, he's as tough a football player as there is in Canadian Interuniversity Sport."


Korman looks to build on past success
Fourth place finish just a start for 2003

Ashley Korman can't wait to start this year's cross country season.

Head coach Bob Vigars describes Korman as a refreshing young athlete with a good attitude and flavour for life. When Korman first tried out for the team, coaches didn't know what to expect.


Boydell: His father's son

Growing up in northern New Jersey, Western Mustangs men's basketball coach Craig Boydell was instantly thrust into the world of athletics.


Letters from the Edge:
Clemens: You've got mail

On the DL

Dear Roger Clemens,

If you ever watched the cartoon "South Park," you might be familiar with a phrase the portly Cartman often said to the poverty-struck Kenny: "God, I hate you Kenny."


Hooked on Mustangs works for me

"Yeah, I'm excited. Yeah, I'm going to get drunk. Yeah, Western is going to kick some ass."


Marijuana still banned

LONDON (AP) - Romanian gymnast Andreea Raducan paid a heavy price for listening to her doctor and taking a common cold tablet during the 2000 Sydney Olympics. She was stripped of a gold medal.


MEN'S BASKETBALL
The Western Mustangs basketball team hit the hardwood on Friday night when they play in their annual Alumni Game at 7:30 p.m. at Alumni Hall. Former players will return to their old stomping grounds to try and beat the pulp out of the current squad. Who said old guys have got no game?
