What an honour, it’s not everyday that someone receives an honorary degree from one of Saskatchewan’s most pristine universities. I can’t imagine the amount of joy that Hayley felt as she walked up those stairs to receive her degree. Sure, she’s won 4 Olympic gold medals and is the all-time leading scorer for female hockey players with 18 goals and 51 points. But do you know what she was missing? A university degree.
Shit, nvm, she already has a university degree. Is there anything this lady can’t do?
I realize that Wickenheiser is from Saskatchewan, but you’re telling me we couldn’t give her an honorary degree from a better school? I don’t know about the U of S, maybe it’s an outstanding school but I’m from Ontario, a province that actually matters. No offence to the corn people of Saskatchewan, but in this writers opinion, a degree from U of T, Western or Queens, would look a hell of a lot better then a degree from the U of S. Again, no offence.
I mean, you’re telling me we can give a Queen’s degree to Karla Homolka but we can’t give one to a lady, whose been named to the order of Canada? I don’t know whose running Queen’s but they need to get their shit together.
P.S. Did you know Wickenheiser played for the Canadian softball team at the Australian Olympics? Talk about a one woman wrecking crew.
P.P.S. When Wickenheiser becomes the women’s coach, she may become the most decorated Canadian athlete when it’s all said and done.
P.P.P.S. She’s getting inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on the first ballot right?
