Bleeding Tricolour: Top 10 reasons a Golden Gaels fan doesn't cheer against Western

In honour of Sunday's Mitchell Bowl matchup between the mighty Mustangs and the Saint Mary's Huskies... and completely free of references to the Saugeen Stripper ...

10. Went to Queen's after being turned down by Ivey business school.

9. There's an underground tunnel that connects the two schools (sssh, don't tell anyone).

8. Yacht club parties — awk-ward!

7. Have heard girls at Western go to the library topless (this is an urban legend — no one at Western goes to the library).

6. Greg Marshall has yet to beat Queen's in the regular season since returning to Western.

5. Larry Haylor's mentor was long-time Queen's coach Doug Hargreaves.

4. The Mustangs can only tie the record for fewest points allowed in a playoff game against SMU.

3. You can't despise the purple when you are men who wear yellow and call yourself Gaels.

2. Those who know the world revolves them pity those who think it does.

1. Western folk are some of the finest folk around.

I really get the feeling a Laurier post may have to go up to counter this one:

"What's the difference between the Western Cheerleading team and a 3 ring circus? One's a cunning display of stunts...I can't remember the rest, but your mother's a whore!" ;)

I hope the Mustangs win this weekend but only because they're the OUA rep, and it would give the conference better standing in the CIS. But nothing more than that! :)
