The hockey team finished the regular season with ten wins which although competitive left them on the outside looking in at the play-offs, seven points behind Carleton who landed the sixth and final post season berth.

Congratulations to cross town rival Queen’s University men’s hockey team who ended in first place in the OUA mid east division edging out U of T 29 to 28 points.

    Certainly a great read “American Patriots vs British Imperialists” – just had to read it from the title alone! Entertaining at the very least.

    It was a real eye-opener, suitably ‘printed’ on the appropriate yellow background colour to emphasize the subtle journalistic slant to the piece. Any peer-reviewed credibility on the internet? With American history being handled with such biased hometown kid gloves, why did an explanation for the term ‘Ugly American’ not crop up in this white-washed version of behind the scenes war-room banter and personal bashing of the British across the entire previous two and half-centuries? Let’s hope this version doesn’t make it near Canadian text books. American authors looking for research funding in the future should be so blind in the pro-USA global assessment of Bush’s actions in this century! Will anyone even really care a hundred years from now, or will the US still be around, the way things seem to be going these days south of the real border?
