An update in our ongoing quest to get the Kingston media to return to referring to our beloved Golden Gaels by the name that the Athletics Department itself admits is its official name:This morning, K-Rock 105.7's morning newsman Tony Orr began referring to the team as the "Golden Gaels", remarking that it was, in fact, their actual name, and that the phrase had not become as verboten as the rest of the media might have you think.
I, for one, welcome the legendary Kingston broadcaster to the ranks of the rational in Kingston. One down, the rest of them to go.
The Whig-Standard unfortunately has taken a step backwards. Fresh off of reporting that the team's official name was Golden Gaels, the paper has continued to refer to them as the Queen's Gaels. So they're referring to them by a name they themselves reported was not the actual team name.
Baby steps, I suppose.
