For the past three years, this space has been reserved for outgoing editor-in-chief Justin Way. When I became one of the sports editors at the beginning at this semester, Justin eased the transition to ensure that the sports section of The Concordian would remain as solid as it had been throughout the three years he has been with the paper. As his time at Concordia is coming to an end, I owe him a huge amount of gratitude and will put in print that the sports section will remain as solid as it was over his tenure.
But, to quote Mark McGwire, I’m not here to talk about the past.
This has only been my first year at Concordia, but I am already a Stingers fan through and through. I am not only at the games as a reporter, but cheering on whichever Concordia team is playing on that given day.
I will keep this sport section securely on top as Concordia’s sports authority, without any allegations of steroid use.
There is always a sporting event going down at Concordia, whether it is a hockey tournament, basketball all-star game, soccer or rugby. I will let Concordia know when it is happening and what happened. The Concordian’s sport section has been awesome for the last four to five years, and next year will be no different. The section is like the New York Yankees, without George Steinbrenner and the budget- but always near the top of the standings when the playoffs come around. The section is in good hands, unlike the Washington Nationals under Jim Bowden – although we are looking for some five-tool outfielders.
In all seriousness, I am willing to answer any concerns about the section during my time as sports editor, so if you have any questions, do not hesitate.
