The US Women's National Team played a friendly with Canada over the weekend, but it was anything but friendly for former Bruin Sydney Leroux.
When you chant racial slurs, taunt me and talk about my family don't be mad when I shush you and show pride in what I represent. #america— Sydney Leroux (@sydneyleroux) June 3, 2013
Leroux, who was born in Canada, decided to represent the United States and Canadians are STILL a bit upset. Fellow Bruin and USWNT teammate Lauren Cheney has her back.
I'm not for any language that is meant to hurt another person whether it be racial, political or plain ignorant. @sydneyleroux I stand by u— lauren cheney (@laurencheney8) June 3, 2013
The USWNT won, 3-0.
She was in good spirits before the game, taking on the newest exercise craze with her USWNT teammate (and former Cal Bear but her goals in big matches can forgive that transgression) Alex Morgan:

Chris Kluwe and Brandon Ayandabejo were both invited to a reception at the White House for LGBT Pride, and unfortunately Kluwe had to decline - he just posted his no RSVP online for everyone to see:
Lest anyone EVER question my commitment to a team that employs me, I present exhibit A. #focus, #SOFOCUSED twitter.com/ChrisWarcraft/…— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) May 31, 2013
Ayandabejo will not be attending either - he had already committed to speaking at the UCLA Athletics graduation the same night.
I will see the obamas for the ravens White House tour. I am committed to speak at the @uclaathletics graduation. My word is all I have.— Brendon Ayanbadejo (@brendon310) May 31, 2013
He will see the President on Friday with the Ravens.
XSF has discovered vine, and he introduces us to a few Bruins, and an incoming Bruin:

When Caleb returned home, he was greeted with a harsh reality:
