Political football

 

Saskatoon Mayor Don Atchison, centre, lends his support to the U of S Huskies football team before their Sept. 11 home-game season opener against the University of Alberta Golden Bears. Atchison and U of S Students’ Union President Gavin Gardener, left, had helped the University’s President, Peter MacKinnon, right, with the ceremonial kick-off.

Each year’s first home game, known as Dog Day Afternoon, is an upbeat affair, with a barbecue, music, toga-clad Huskies fans, and games for children. The Huskies lost to the U of A 18-16 in the final minutes of the game.

At City Hall on Sept. 10, Atchison had proclaimed Sept. 11 to be University of Saskatchewan Day, in recognition of the key role the University plays in the city.
