Ahhh, the gool old days. If there's one business that will never die it's the business of a quick fix in the fitness industry. The idea of having to do basically nothing at all and lose weight is so appealing to us as a society that it's no surprise that diet/fitness is a bazillion dollar industry (approximately) and so many of us are still unhealthy and overweight (and just in case you didn't quite get that, I'm saying that the ol' quick-fix-do-nothing-lose-weight methods don't work, in case you hadn't noticed).

The Selkirk Saints men’s hockey team welcomed the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) to town for a pair of games this past weekend.
With both teams out of the playoff race and near even in the standings, the stage was set for a battle on all fronts.
A battle it was but from opposite perspectives and as UFV kept racking up penalty minutes, the Saints replied with goals….. and a lot of them.
