Deferring to's coverage of the Final 8 seems like the wiser choice -- Mark Wacyk and an army of hundreds should have it covered pretty well. Meantime, I'll call attention to some linkage from this morning.
  • Streaming Sports Network Canada ( got some major pub today with a mention in the Toronto Star.
  • Colleague Chris Stevenson, as he always does, lends some perspective on Carleton's success, putting against a backdrop of parity-happy pro sports. (Who would have known, if not for Chris, that Senators coach Bryan Murray coached a little basketball in his day?)
    My contributions to the Sun's coverage consist of a feature on the newly minted Mike Moser Memorial Trophy winner, Aaron Doornekamp of Carleton (in both tabloid and broadsheet form), plus a feature on the "glue" of the Ravens, point guard Ryan Bell.

I'll check in from time to time here and at The CIS Blog, but duty to the ant overlords come first. And hobknobbing. Lots and lots of hobknobbing.

Nice work on the feature on Doornekamp... it ran front page in the Whig, by the way. It's amazing that so many players (and coaches) from the same family have enjoyed such success at the CIS level... no Brent Gretzkys in this bunch.

The story always goes that Kim Gretzky, Wayne's sister, was the best athlete of the bunch ... they were talking about her being an Olympic runner but she tore some ligaments when she slipped on some ice one time.. between the primitive surgery techniques of the day and the relative lack of opportunities for women athletes, she was probably just ahead of her time.
