This weekend was “Fauxcoming” at Queen’s University which is a student initiated replacement for proper Homecoming. In fact, it’s an idea that we championed on the radio show to protest the end of Homecoming. Anyway, Neate Sager takes an in-depth look at Homecoming and the issues around it. (The CIS Blog)
The Queen’s Journal also had a live blog of the Fauxcoming party on Aberdeen Street. Am I the only one that thought a car being flipped was just a case of “boys will be boys”? The guy got an insurance payout and a donation from the students. He benefitted from that. (Queen’s Journal)

Another double-dip of photo galleries today. The first one is part photo gallery and part list. It’s a look at the Top 60 hottest women in sports movie. This may come as a shock but #1 was disappointing. (Bleacher Report)
Our second photo gallery brings us back to my old stomping grounds at UWO. Danielle Hilliard of the Western Mustangs cheerleading team was SI.com’s Cheerleader of the Week. Here is the interview. And here is her photo gallery. If she’s reading this, the radio show would be a great place to talk about her experience on the cheerleading team and working with SI.
