  Hoop thoughtPDF files may take a moment to load

Who is the best basketball player in the world? Is it T-Mac or Kobe? Is it Shaq, Alley-I, maybe Kevin Garnett?

ESPN's Ralph Wiley explored this issue in a December column, but he should have refocused his article in a more important direction. Mainly, are any of today's NBA players better than Teen Wolf?

  Hockey hits one weekend winPDF files may take a moment to load

After an up and down weekend against the University of Manitoba Bisons, the Dinos men's hockey team completed the first half of the schedule with a respectable .500 record.

On Friday night the Dinos snuck out with a 3-2 victory, but like a fat kid on a teeter-totter they fell to the Bisons 4-2 in the rematch on Saturday night. Although the team only came out of the series with a split, there were a lot of positives to focus on.

  Dinos sweep HuskiesPDF files may take a moment to load

Last weekend the Dinos men's basketball team had their first home weekend sweep in two years.

The second-place Saskatchewan Huskies began the weekend full of hope, but lost by only one point on Friday night. John Riad (right) scored in the final 22 seconds of the tied game to take the lead for the U of C, and Aman Heran followed with two free throws to finish the Huskies off. The close match resulted in a 80-79 Dinos victory.

  Wrestlers dish out the painPDF files may take a moment to load

Every setting needs a class clown. From lecture halls to boardrooms, there is always a need for someone to lighten up the atmosphere; to make people laugh out loud.

In the University of Calgary athletic community, that role is performed by the men's wrestling team. For example, several members of the team have joined the fledgeling cheerleading squad, in order to help the girls perform some strength-based maneuvers.

  A wishful list for all to havePDF files may take a moment to load

Football
All we want for Christmas is a new quarterback. Oh, and Coach Fasano needs new mustache clippers.

Field hockey
One giant typhoon to wipe out the West Coast. Oh what a conference it would be without UBC and UVIC. It also wouldn't hurt to have one more Kelsey Barrie and an Ashley Reaburn too.

Women's soccer
Higher regulation nets! And a chance to kick that UBC girl in the junk after she grabbed the ball in the crease... Bitch!

  Volleyball ladies make a climb for the topPDF files may take a moment to load

Like climbing Everest, the challenge of getting to the top is never easy, especially with an inexperienced team. But inexperience is not stopping these Dinos from climbing to the top of their division.

Calgary was able to take both matches this weekend against the University of Saskatchewan, a team desperately fighting to stay in playoff contention. But the Dinos were ready... somewhat.

  Lady Dinos drive for a winning recordPDF files may take a moment to load

For most of the season thus far, the Dinos women's basketball team has played a so-so game on Friday, followed by a stellar effort on Saturday. Last weekend, when the Dinos hosted the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, it was the same story. The Dinos lost 70-61 on Friday, then came back and clobbered the visitors 88-78 the following night.

  U of C needs to look at environmentPDF files may take a moment to load

"There are not enough great things in our society because there are too many good things," said President Harvey Weingarten to the Nov. 2002 graduates. Referring to society in general, but higher education specifically, Dr. Weingarten is working to make the University of Calgary a great university. That is to be applauded. However, one area that occasionally falls by the wayside when changing an organization is thinking about the ecological footprint of that institution.

  Gaming not root of violencePDF files may take a moment to load

For the longest time, I've heard people say that playing video games will cause the subjects playing them to imitate what they see or to adopt it into their psyche. I bought this theory for all of about three seconds. By this jump of logic I should be a FIFA soccer player, an NHL goalie, twice made a run at the WWF title and race Nascars under the name "Dr. Ma-go-go."
