Linking the country: Mariano Rivera is not walkin' through that door

This was originally meant to go live on Friday, so some stories are of an older vintage.


  • It was "mistakes and sloppy play" that did in the Gaels on Saturday. Neate wouldn't disagree. (Kingston Whig-Standard)

  • Adrian Charles had another great game for Regina, who overcame an 18-0 deficit to win 41-19. (Regina Leader-Post)

  • Here's a good profile on Brad Sinopoli by his hometown paper. (Peterborough Examiner)

  • And another one on York's Jonelle Tolbert. (Toronto Star)

  • Greg Layson wants someone to take away D.J. "Donnovan" Bennett's Top 10 ballot, because of what he sees as "blatant OUA bias", contending Bennett's employer--which is also a partner of ours--has a vested interest (however small) in having more OUA teams in the Top 10. (Big Man on Campus)

  • Not to spoil the point of this article (or to foreshadow a forthcoming article on this blog), but Windsor's playoff chances are not that small: the only real obstacle is beating Laurier. If you equate "hoping U of T loses to Western" with "losing control of your destiny" then you're even more pessimistic than I am. (One Windsor newspaper)


  • Dave Adolph, coach of the men's Cougars, says everyone in the conference is "for real" but brings up the same scheduling problem that Evan has mentioned. (The Star Phoenix)

  • As for the Regina women, they beat Saskatchewan in their home-and-home series. Regina coach Sarah Howald is not criticizing the officiating in the second game, not at all, but she did say, "It's what we expect when we come to Saskatoon." Not having seen the game, I can't comment, but the PIM totals were 22 to 10--except that 10 of the Cougars' 22 were given to Paige Wheeler in addition to her two for checking from behind. So assuming she did, in fact, check someone from behind, then we're left with five other minors on both sides. Howald must be referring to something more than the sheer number of penalties, then. (The Star Phoenix)


  • Bad weekend for Waterloo basketball, dropping all six games in the men's and women's draws at the Naismith Tournament. (The Record)

  • Rejean Chabot is back with the Huskies this year, after a few years in Brandon. Chabot: "The decision to leave, I like to think that I was young and immature. It was a mistake on my behalf. I think I've learned from it and I'm a better person because of it." (The Star Phoenix)

  • The Great Group of Dudes lost 72-70 to the Axemen on Friday. Justin Boutilier had the winning shot with two seconds left, leading coach Scott Morrison (a Yankees fan) to lament, "if only we could have put Mariano in against Acadia."
