Student of the week: Clovis Rigout

Does spinach, oyster mushrooms, and feta raviolis with a red pepper coulis sound better than your normal frozen pizza with a side of Kraft Dinner? Of course it does—but those types of dinners only exist for most students in the realm of parent visits and graduation dinners. For Clovis Rigout, however, these meals are much… Keep Reading

Around the water cooler – Feb. 18

FIGURE SKATING —We may have had ridiculous expectations, but come on, it was Canada’s golden boy—no, not Sidney Crosby. Patrick Chan took the silver medal, missing out on the gold by less than five points in the men’s free program on Saturday.

Taking the Lambeau leap

I can’t exactly pinpoint the time I became a Green Bay Packers fan.

Staying at home: McGill clinches first in conference

When Dave DeAveiro took over as McGill Redmen head coaching position in 2010, the program was in a bit of a rut.

Chris Bosh: the ultimate ‘third-wheel’

My Toronto Raptors fandom was born when Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady first flew through the newly opened Air Canada Centre, leading what was arguably the most exciting young team in the NBA.

Frustration turned into fuel for these Redmen, who were determined to claim a title this past weekend at the CUFLA championship in Peterborough, Ontario. This time, they didn’t disappoint, and returned to… Keep Reading
