Cheer your hearts out: 2/17 – 2/18

M. lacrosse will joyfully start its season with an exhibition game Saturday against the Iroquios U19 team.

Since it will be a long weekend and many of you won’t be on campus, not many home games are scheduled for this weekend. But today, National Lacrosse Hall of Fame player and renowned Native American speaker and activist, Oren Lyons is giving a talk about the cultural and spiritual role of lacrosse in Native communities at 4pm in the Granoff Center. It sounds cool to all you anti-sports people, right? Non-violent and all that jazz? But if you’re the type that enjoys watching sports more than talking about them, here are all the weekend home games:

Friday, Feb. 17

M. ice hockey drops its gloves and fights Harvard at 7pm. Go simply because you don’t like Harvard.
W. basketball definitely does not drop the ball against the Crimson at 7pm. Go simply because the women’s basketball team is better than the hockey team.

Cheer your hearts out: 2/10 – 2/12

Zak DeOssie '07 celebrates his second Super Bowl win with the Giants. Hope this doesn't hurt too much.

Is this picture too soon? We’re sorry. But let’s put the Super Bowl in the past. Whether you’re a Giants fan or a Patriots fan, or you were hoping for both teams’ destruction, let’s unite now — through our mutual love of the Bears. Here is a schedule of the home games your fellow classmates will be competing in this weekend:

Friday, Feb. 10

W. ice hockey takes on the No. 3 Big Red at 7pm. It’s the team’s annual “Pink at the Rink” event!
W. basketball rumbles with the Lions, also at 7pm. There isn’t any special event going on. The squad is just a lot more ballin’ than the women’s hockey team.

Saturday, Feb. 11

Don’t let the fluffy white stuff that’s supposed to be falling from the sky stop you from coming to these matchups. Bears are supposed to be hibernating. But Brown Bares Bears are better than that. Continue Reading

Cheer your hearts out: 2/3/11 – 2/5/11

The wrestling squad has two home conference matches this weekend, and is looking for its third straight win.

You think Brown sports teams are a bit boring, don’t you? That’s the underlying assumption, right? After all, The Herald ran a series about how we’re “Underdog U.”  But maybe we’re all just really attending the wrong sports. Women’s basketball coach Jean Marie Burr won her 300th game last week against Dartmouth, and the wrestling and men’s tennis teams are racking up some impressive wins. Maybe you’ll cheer them on this weekend, or maybe you’ll stick with the typical hockey. Here’s a quick schedule of Bruno’s home matches this weekend:

Friday, Feb. 3

M. hockey looks to stay in the playoff picture with a win over Clarkson at 7pm.

But if hockey’s not your thing, m. basketball will be battling Princeton next door at the Pizz., also at 7pm.

And then, if you get bored watching tall dudes run up and down a court, you can head to the indoor tennis courts in the Pizz to watch w. tennis against PC at 8pm.

Cheer your hearts out: 1/27-1/29

It’s a brand new semester. Which means that, while it’s time to go buy and sell your classes and wait in long mail room package lines to get boxes of books you know you probably won’t end up actually reading, you actually have plenty of time. Which means you and all those friends you need to catch up with can come out to cheer on your fellow Bears in various sporting events.Here are all the home games this weekend:

Friday, Jan. 27

Women’s ice hockey takes on the Big Green at 7 pm. The team is currently .500 after going 3-2-2 over winter break. They are currently in eighth place, the last playoff spot. This is a team that only won three games all season last year.
Men’s basketball also battles the Big Green at 7 pm. Unlike the female icers, the break didn’t treat the b-ballers to kindly. They went 1-6. Continue Reading

Alums who do cool things: Cerretani ’04 and Shamasdin ’05 to host local charity event

Current ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) competitors and former Brown tennis teammates Jamie Cerretani ’04 (right) and Adil Shamasdin ’05 (left) put together the World Class Tennis charity event for this Sunday, Dec. 11, at 5 pm at Agawam Hunt in East Providence.

Here’s our email Q&A with Cerretani (who has won three ATP doubles titles and was a 2011 Wimbledon quarter-finalist) about the event:  Continue Reading

Cheer your hearts out: 12/2 – 12/4

Captain Jack McClellan ’12 and the rest of the men's hockey team will look to beat ECAC and Ivy rival Yale this weekend.

Did anybody else notice that it got pretty cold as soon as it became December? Well, if you didn’t notice, the men’s and women’s hockey teams are here to remind you that it’s winter. And these Bears don’t hibernate just because it got a little chilly — they skate on one-centimeter-wide blades on a solid sheet of ice whacking at a black rubber disc and colliding with other people, intentionally or unintentionally. How does that not sound like a blast to watch?

Come cheer on your fellow classmates at these home games this weekend:

Friday, December 2
Women’s ice hockey returns to its ECAC schedule to take on Quinnipiac at 7 pm. The squad already has a better record than last season.  Continue Reading
