“What is your favourite UNB sports team to watch and why?”
Nathan DeLong (Staff Reporter): I enjoy the men’s hockey team because of the success they’ve had in recent years. They’re among the most complete and well-built teams I’ve ever seen. I’ve also had the privilege of covering the V-Reds soccer teams’ seasons for the Daily Gleaner, and they’re two highly skilled teams, as well.
John Robb (V-Reds Fan): For me it has to be men’s basketball. Coach Baker recruits hard every year. Javon Masters is a perennial All-Canadian and back to back scoring champ with a chance to rewrite the CIS record book starting in this his third year. Win or lose they put their best effort into every game.
James Woods (Columnist): It has to be the UNB Woodsmen team because the sport is so original and unique. They use chainsaws and throw axes for goodness sakes; it’s the definition of entertainment. If you think beards are cool and you dig flannel shirts this is the sport for you!
Iain MacMillan (Columnist): My favourite UNB sport is football, mainly because the Atlantic Football League is so young (six years) and being able to watch a club sport grow from the bottom up is exciting and intriguing. The team and league has a ton of talent, and they have taken large strides in the direction of eventually merging with the AUS.
