If your life has been hectic, you ought to try Michael Bernard Fitzgerald's time-management secret. It's a combination of BlackBerry, iCal and mom, but don't tell anyone about the last part.

Despite dropping their first two games to the University of Victoria Vikes this past weekend at Hawkings Field, the University of Calgary Dinos field hockey team is optimistic about the direction their squad is taking this season.

The youthful Dinos held the strong Vikes team to just one goal in the first half of the second game in the weekend doubleheader.

"It was a good outcome for us," said Dinos head coach Jenn Swagar. "It was unexpected. Their stats are way better than ours and their defence played solid."

  Letter: A bunch of cheap bastardsPDF files may take a moment to load

Editor, the Gauntlet,

In the Gauntlet's latest drinking supplement, a reviewer casually references the "snotty smirk" worn by some waitresses in the city. I'd like to mention that if the server is smirking at the Gauntlet staff, it's probably because you tip poorly. (Oh, and calling a "server" a "waitress" probably doesn't help your case.)

Ahhhh . . . the only thing better than the taste of that inaugural morning coffee following a long weekend is the taste of a FREE morning coffee provided by your Students' Union. As I'm sitting here, sipping on my free cup of Earl Grey and watching all those oblivious students in that horrendous queue for Tim Hortons, I wonder: What is the best way to tell undergraduates about Mundane Mondays?

"What's Mundane Mondays, Luke?" I hear you think with a blank stare.
