Chad Murray: CIS Athlete of the Year

Given the number of time fourth year Olympic hopeful Chad Murray was made to flex his muscles by his cheering teammates, it is no wonder he captured the Male Swimmer of the Year title at the CIS Swimming Championship in Toronto, March 5-7.

It is ritual for Dinos team members to flex after finishing first in a heat or in a final swim at competitions. For Murray, who captured five gold medals at this year's CIS Championships, flexing should have been second nature.

  Alan Cho exposed: the man behind the Dead BabiesPDF files may take a moment to load

Playwright, journalist and cartoonist, Alan Cho is a figure of harsh derision and brackish demeanor. His regular comic strip "All Dead Babies Go to Heaven" has raised the ire of prominent groups on campus as well as sensible human beings across the world. This week, the Gauntlet had the rare opportunity to speak to Mr. Cho in our offices.

Jeff Kubik: Thank you for taking the time to speak to me, Mr. Cho. I know you're a man of many commitments.

Swimming is an intensely individual sport where athletes--isolated by lane ropes and chlorinated water--focus on personal best times and individual ranking. A dedicated breed, swimmers train as much as 20 hours a week in repetitious and grueling fashion to shave off mere hundredths of a second in races ranging from 50 to 1,500 meters.

Re: Campus Quips, Mar. 4, 2004,

In my three years of reading the Gauntlet, this was quite possibly the most tasteless thing I have ever seen printed in it.

Editor, the Gauntlet,

Re: "Barski taking SU election to review board," Mar. 4, 2004.

Dear Barski, et. al,

I wish to congratulate you and your colleagues, over the past few weeks you've all proven you would make lovely Republicans. Whining of such a magnitude should never go unrecognized. Stirring up all this election controversy is superb. Calling the electorate "nerds" while claiming that Barski is not a "jock" is a brilliant strategy--the effectiveness is all in the paradox.
