And so it comes to this. Less than 48 hours after this paper hits the stands, we will know who our 2004-05 Students' Union representatives are--inevitable Review Board challenges notwithstanding.

And what an interesting time it has been.

Seeing that the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns couldn't play nice Feb. 6-7, the hockeysaurs made them sorry they even played at all.

The Dinos rolled into the barn in Lethbridge on Friday night and, much to the disappointment of the antelope loving yokels in attendance, the Dinos laid tracks back to Calgary with a 4-2 win in tow.

As we sit back and reflect on the penultimate weekend of the University of Calgary women's basketball team's season, we wonder how the Dinos keep surprising us by lowering their standards and falling victim to teams such as the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns.

Seven more wins. All they need to capture that elusive national crown are seven more wins. Problem is, it's not going to be easy.

"We're in a conference where six of the top seven teams in the country are competing for three berths at nationals," explained Dinos women's volleyball Head Coach Kevin Boyles of the ludicrously competitive Canada West Conference.

  Volleysaurs gain trust and winPDF files may take a moment to load

The Dinos men's volleyball team skinned, tanned and mounted the University of Regina Cougars in two consecutive matches Feb. 6-7.

The Dinos kicked the weekend off right with a heartening 3-0 (25-19, 25-11, 26-24) win Friday. Saturday's match was closer, with the flatland felines briefly flashing their claws in the first and second games only to be ripped apart by the Dinos ferocious incisors in the third, rounding out the weekend 3-0 (25-21, 28-26, 25-13).

  Women hockeysaurs bring the painPDF files may take a moment to load

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.

  We're with stupidPDF files may take a moment to load

We aren't the brightest sack of hammers in the bunch. In fact, we're not even clever enough to understand what stupidity is. That's the premise of Stupidity, a film that amounts to a giant "I'm With Stupid" t-shirt pointing straight at North American culture. It's a documentary that manages to be informative and thoughtful while simultaneously pandering to and mocking its audience. Not an easy line to walk.

  Incest, torture, nudity? Be CleansedPDF files may take a moment to load

The art world is full of cliches, tired schticks and endless imitation of anything inventive. That's why it's inspiring to see artists venturing off the beaten path and attempting to bring something creative and new to their audiences.

But this begs the questions: how far off the beaten path is too far? What qualifies as over the edge?
