Have you ever heard the name Matthew Sheppard? His is a non-descript name; it doesn't tell you very much about this man, who he was, what he did, or what kind of life he had. Perhaps, though, I'll tell you what I know about this name, because I feel it is important you know that he died a few weeks ago. What do you care about this man's death? The fact is, you should care, because he died for being homosexual-a gay, queer, fag, and all those lovely names that people use to classify other people.

He restlessly taps his fingers on the steering wheel as the car in front creeps ahead only inches and fiashes its brake lights. Stop, creep, stop, creep. The traffic jam, annoying to some, but excruciating torture to those like him who thrive on constant motion; destination, ahead.

"Consistency," explained Dinos forward Scott Kelly.

That was the Dinos' weakness this weekend, splitting two games against the Brandon Bobcats. The first was won 5-4 in overtime. Forward Judd Casper stood out with two goals. Game two was an entirely different story, however. After the first two periods, the Dinos were down 6-0.

"We came out in the first two periods and didn't play our game at all," remarked Kelly. "And in the third period we came out and made a better effort. Consistency, definitely."
