Over The Edge

Review: Super Bowl LI

Posted by on Feb 13, 2017 in Sports | 0 comments

Colin Slark | Editor in Chief I don’t watch many NFL games, so I thought I would give this year’s game a shot. One of the biggest problems for me as an extremely casual fan is that I constantly forget the ins and outs of the game and as well as the arcane rituals that surround the viewing experience itself. Like I do with every big game – the Stanley Cup Finals, the World Series, the Michael Jordan Intergalactic Basketball Championship Derby, and many more – I went to the Sports Bar. Of course, the Sports Bar is a massive wrought iron bar that bisects the opening of a large cave with the official logos of all the major sports leagues, as well as that of the NBA, engraved onto its surface. Once you have purified your body by...

10 Best Sports Games of All Time

Posted by on Feb 14, 2016 in Sports, Volume 22 | 0 comments

Brady Stark | Contributor As winter grabs us with its icy hand, we are forced to stay indoors more often than usual and we can turn to our favourite pastime: video games. Here are my top ten sports games of all-time. 10) MLB the Show: As far as over the top games go, MLB the Show does a marvellous job at giving you the feel of a normal baseball game, but cranks up the intensity by making any epic play larger than life. You can be David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox and smash a home run over the fence and into the San Francisco harbor in super slow motion and with fireworks lighting up the sky. If you are on the defensive side of the ball, you can leap twice as high as physically possible. This game is for those who just want to see baseball played at its most extreme. 9) NBA...

Tierney Watkinson | Contributor The PG Cougars dominated over the Kamloops Blazers, claiming a 9-4 victory in their January 22 game. The Cougars started strong, with Jansen Harkins scoring his twelfth goal of the season at 6:17 into the first period. During the second period, the tables seemed to turn as the Cougars had a hard time keeping the puck out of their end. Just 24 seconds in, Devon Sideroff of the Kamloops Blazers got one past Cougars goalie Ty Edmonds, tying the game. The Blazers’ Garrett Philon scored another just minutes later, at 6:57. The Blazers held the lead for mere seconds—at 7:07, Shane Collins tied the game again for the Cougars. While the Blazers were on their third power play of the night, Brogan O’Brien brought the Cougars back into the lead at 11:05. The play began...

Brady Stark | Contributor After 24 games, the Cougars are in the middle of the pack in the standings and looking poised to make a statement on their march to what should be a post-season berth. Whenever you have a decent start like the Cougars are enjoying right now, one wonders how certain players have fared when breaking down the season into more minute details. Since Over the Edge is a school newspaper by students for students, it is only fair to give other people in our community report cards for a change. Here are five Prince George Cougars that have been sized up for their play in the first quarter of the season. Ty Edmonds: Despite having a 5-4-1 record to start the season, Edmonds has picked up where he left o last season with very strong play. On...

The Price should be right for Blue Jays

Posted by on Nov 30, 2015 in Sports, Volume 22 | 0 comments

Brady Stark | Contributor A mere month removed from making their spectacular run in the MLB playoffs, the Blue Jays are looking a little worse for wear. First, there young stud of a GM decides that he wants to take his talents out of Toronto to a yet to be determined organization. Next, they lose Mark Buehrle, Dioner Navarro, and David Price to free agency. The latter of those three has to be the most puzzling of them, after all, Buehrle is getting up there in age and Navarro wants to be the main guy behind the plate instead of backing up Russell Martin. David Price just finished second in Cy Young voting to the Houston Astros ace Keuchel, and is poised and driven to do even better next year. Price was a dominant force in the regular season, but faltered a little...
