Howie’s back!

The Province’s high school sports reporter Howard Tsumura survived the weekend named in his honour. Now he’s back on PSR to talk up the beginning of the high school hoops season.

High school basketball, it is argued, has a leg up on all other school sports, it is argued – why is that? Howard weighs in.

Mr. Tsumura is also a big Detroit Lions fan. The Lions are up against the Eagles this weekend, with a chance to pretty much write their playoff ticket. Is Howie a touch nervous?

There’s also the rest of the weekend – PJ and J-Mac chime in with what they are watching for.

And then there’s Mr. Mandela. The South African president was a big believer in the power of sport to bring unity. Many know the basics from movies like Invictus (about the 1995 Rugby World Cup) but the story is so much deeper. Patrick, Jonathan and Howard all pay tribute to the great man known as ‘Madiba’ a day after his passing.
