B-

To say the Dinos men's hockey team fulfilled all their goals throughout the course of this season would be a stretch of the truth rivaled only by CNN's journalistic views on the war. However, to say that none of their goals were accomplished would be a flat-out lie.

Entertainment, what is it?

If I had to relate it to the Dinos, then it would have to be any event that was worth watching, for one reason or another. Whether it was seeing our Dinos completely humiliate their opponents, or the pure joy of being in the stands with a bunch of drunken, rowdy Rez kids, I left the games feeling satisfied and entertained not as if I had just wasted a couple of goods hours I could have better spent drinking.

So one day, this Newfie decides to make a trek across Canada. As she makes her way through Saskatchewan, she suddenly stops her car. The Newfie couldn't believe her eyes--there was a person sitting in a boat in the middle of a wheat field pretending to row.

  Ron MacLean helps the Dinos hit the bankPDF files may take a moment to load

For once, Canadian broadcasting legend Ron MacLean made some comments he can't get fired for.

"This isn't the first time we've been in trouble with the CBC," he chuckled to a sold out crowd at the Dinos Football Fifth Quarter Dinner, "and it probably won't be the last."

  Return of the KingPDF files may take a moment to load

Seven years later, the U of C athletic department has finally welcomed Peter Connellan back into the fold.

For 13 years, Connellan, one of those coaches who you feel required to refer to as "Coach," manned the helm of the Dinos football team. In that time, the Dinos won a remarkable four national championships and seven conference championships. He never coached a team to a losing season and compiled a 70-32-2 record. Since his departure, the Dinos haven't so much as won a playoff game.

  Manitoba, Up in FlamesPDF files may take a moment to load

There aren't many albums that make me sign my name to the statement: "this album will begin a revolution." However, every once in a while, something truly special gets put to tape and even though it may not become the biggest selling album of all time, it will have hundreds of artists naming it as a great inspiration in the years to come. Up In Flames is one of those CDs.

My backpack was stolen. I think this CD was in my backpack. The CD turned up, nothing else in my backpack has. Of all the things I had in my backpack, this is the last thing I wanted to turn up. If that isn't telling enough, consider that whoever took my bag actually went to the trouble of removing the CD first. At least I know the thief has taste.

  Idlewild, The Remote PartPDF files may take a moment to load

Relying heavily on a 2001 article in Spin magazine naming 2000's 100 Broken Windows "one of the essential records of 2001 you missed," Edinborough, Scotland's Idlewild decided North America was ready for their fuzzy blend of Sonic Youth influenced punk and Brit pop sensibilities. Received very well with spots on Conan and Letterman, Idlewild's future direction became clearer after a crucial meeting with new fan Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith guitarist and CBGB's icon).

  Les Nubians, One Step ForwardPDF files may take a moment to load

With One Step Forward, Parisian hip-hop/R&B duo Les Nubians have crafted an album that even the hardened anglophone can enjoy. Granted, some of the songs are in French and the girls' English is somewhat accented, but it's definitely nothing you can't easily overlook. This album represents a diverse collection of musical styles, ranging from reggae to electronica, from underground hip-hop to Afro-jazz. The end result is a thoroughly pleasant and laid-back listening experience, sweet and satisfying from beginning to end.
