Animal rights activists showed up at the Calgary Stampede with their big green sign with "Rodeo Kills" painted in black letters. It was hard to determine whether they were referring to the riders or the ride ees. They also tried to show people statistics as they entered the grounds, but all their cries fell on deaf ears.

Taryn Swiatek, the former University of Calgary women's soccer team goalie (from 1999-2001), was awarded the Booster Club's Henry Viney Trophy for Female Athlete of the Year Tue., Mar. 16. Swiatek helped the Canadian women's World Cup team reach the semi-finals during last year's tournament with her steady hands as keeper. This was a huge achievement for Canada, since in previous World Cup appearances, neither the men's nor the women's team won a single game.

  Car crushin' madnessPDF files may take a moment to load

Think back to your childhood. What was the first vehicle you wanted your parents to buy for you to drive around in?

For me, it was a monster truck. That's not to say I didn't have a normal childhood, but monster trucks always fascinated me--from a young age right up until I realized there was no way in hell I would get one.

It's down to the last regular season game for the Dino women's hockey team. They fought long and hard for a chance to play in the playoffs and they better not screw it up against the winless SAIT Trojan Thu., Feb. 12. It shouldn't be difficult to beat the Trojans, but there's always room for an upset to send everyone in attendance home crying.

The Dinos women's hockey team tied the first place team in the league. Think about that. The second last team, with a record of 4-9-2-1, faces the Grant MacEwan Griffins, with a record of 15-1-2, and they tie?

Whoa! Good on 'em.


'All hail Kaleb Toth! Fri., Jan. 31 against the Colorado Mammoth he scored five goals. Even more awe-inspiring is the fact his fifth goal was the game winner, breaking a 13-13 tie with only 20 seconds left.
