  Pink Flamingo Challenge: A new-school failurePDF files may take a moment to load

Failing a fitness challenge is awesome in so many ways. First of all, you don't have to motivate your lazy ass enough to get down to the damn gym. You don't feel tired after moving around pieces of metal for an hour, or running around a giant circle for 20 minutes. In fact, you don’t feel tired at all, because you’ve done absolutely nothing.

Yes, failing a fitness challenge is great, except for the effect on your body, self-esteem and dignity.

Christmas came to the rink early Dec.1-2, but the University of Calgary men's hockey Dinos must have done something to get on Santa's naughty list. The Dinos were robbed by the University of Alberta Golden Bears Friday night in a 2-1 defeat in front of frozen fans at Father David Bauer Arena, and were shovelled aside with the dirty Edmonton snow in a 5-3 loss the following night up north.

Way back in October, Gauntlet writer Ben Hoffman embarked on a challenge.

[Re: "Muslim feature one-sided," letter, Nov. 30, 2006]

I began to read Robert Schmiel's letter regarding Sarah Malik's three-part feature on modern day Muslims with great interest. Okay, I made that part up, but I found nothing that would dispute her facts; rather his letter simply states that Malik's article wasn't written in the fashion Schmiel would have preferred.

I would like both to praise Sarah Malik's series of articles on "The Muslim" and disagree strongly with professor Schmiel's charge that they are "one-sided."
