Highlights of Wesleyan Football vs. Hamilton

 If you missed Wesleyan Football’s home game against Hamilton College this past Saturday (it was pretty overcast and rainy), you can check out this highlight reel of the game. The Cardinals won 34-14, crushing Hamilton in an epic second half where they came back from the 7-6 deficit. New running back Kyle Gibson ’15 was named NESCAC Co-Offensive Player of the Week for his impressive 244 rushing yards on 35 carries. He also scored a touchdown in the 3rd quarter. You can read more about it here.

For those of you who would prefer to watch the highlights instead of reading about them, definitely check out the video; it was produced by WesPregame, a service that connects students, parents, and alumni with athletics on campus. They have a live show every Monday night at 9PM. You can find out more about WesPregame (and follow more sports!) at WesPregame’s Facebook and Twitter.

Balls, Bruises and Blocks: Discussing the Performance of Masculinity in Sports

Guys, I’m posting to Wesleying from one of those Olin compooters, and it’s lame. Well, not really. Well, kinda really. I don’t know. Anyway, courtesy of Cool Cat ’77, check out the blurb for this discussion tomorrow if you missed it in your email:

How are gender, race and class performed in sporting events? How are such repeated public performances embedded into American male culture? The Center for the Arts will host a panel consisting of Professor of Psychology and Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies Jill Morawski, Assistant Professor of Sociology Greg Goldberg and Wesleyan student-athletes Allee Beatty ’13 (Softball), Luke Erickson ’12 (Wrestling), and Casey Reed ’12 (Volleyball). The panel will also question the possibilities for transgression and the alternative masculinities that might be performed.
