Men’s swimming and diving start championship season at Boston Winter Open, prepare for NESCACs

The Jumbos kicked off their championship season at the Boston Winter Open at Boston University this weekend. The arduous championship season began with a Friday and Saturday showing by Tufts featuring a smattering of top three finishes in a competitive field. With an eye on repeating last season’s exciting NESCAC victory, the Jumbos got the […]

Anti-Bostonian: Nostalgia is a good old-fashioned kid’s cartoon

Nostalgia is a powerful weapon. It can elicit memories ranging from a championship match to watching an early-2000s cartoon on a small, standard-definition television. If one were to solely define nostalgia by these two elements, then boy, were they in for a treat last Thursday evening. Warning: this metaphor will be milked for a hot […]

The Anti-Bostonian: Patriots derail the hopes of everyone … again

The article’s title should clarify the unceremonious downturn my mood took last weekend. In case you were wondering amidst the 21 Savage meme hysteria on Sunday evening, a football game was played. Only it was an encounter played for three quarters like two chess masters determined to have the game end in a stalemate, wanting to slowly […]

Men’s swimming and diving win 3 races in loss at MIT, prepares for championship meets

The Engineers of MIT brought their full toolbox to their home swimming pool on Friday, defeating the Jumbos by a convincing score of 215.5–80.5. Tufts did not perform in full force; however, many of its swimmers are gearing up for the NESCAC Championships that start on Feb. 22. MIT, the sixth-ranked team in the nation, capped […]

Men’s and women’s swimming and diving return to action with similar showings

The Tufts men’s and women’s swimming & diving teams returned to action this weekend with nearly identical results: decisive victories at Wheaton College and hard-fought home defeats to Boston College on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. After winter break, both teams jumped into the competitive pool for the first time since Dec. 8. The women’s team impressed […]

The Anti-Bostonian: The case for a passive goodbye

They say criticism is the highest form of flattery. (Or is that imitation?) Mark my words, it is certainly uncommon to find a hardline New Yorker peel back the thinly-veiled veneer of their shell to admit that maybe all this “anti-Boston” sentiment originates from a point of jealousy. For the sake of athletics, that is. Call […]

The Anti-Bostonian: The case against the Celtics’ progress

It’s almost as if the Celtics’ roster is too strong for its own good. When you literally pillage another NBA franchise, it makes sense that you’d have more talent than you’d know what to do with. But Brad Stevens didn’t build his current coaching acumen on the backs of talented rosters. He built it on […]

The Anti-Bostonian: Brees over Brady

The illustrious careers of Drew Brees and Tom Brady are similar in many elements. Both make up for a lack of intrinsic athleticism with an eye for an open receiver, where they both nestle in dainty spirals in the smallest of windows against airtight coverage. They’ve both received individual accolades, tasted Super Bowl glory — […]

Carlson shines in maiden sailing season at Tufts, finishes 13th at Nationals

First-year Abbie Carlson impressed in her maiden season on the Tufts sailing teams, culminating in a 13th-place finish at the LaserPerformance Women’s Singlehanded Nationals. The regatta included 14 races over the weekend of Nov. 3–4 at Grand Valley State in Allendale, Mich. At Nationals, Carlson competed against some of the fiercest competition around the nation […]

Meet you at Mile 9: Megerle’s legacy extends nearly five decades, many more miles

You can find Donald Megerle, director of the Tufts University President’s Marathon Challenge, at Mile 9 of the Boston Marathon every year, banana in hand and arms outstretched, ready for a hug from Tufts runners donning golden singlets. “I like thinking, as far as I’m concerned, that they’re running to me,” Megerle said. “It’s not an […]
