As Duncan mentioned in an earlier post, today is the Battle of Alberta as the University of Alberta Golden Bears take on the University of Calgary Dinos. Yes, the Golden Bears may be coming off two in a row and have the momentum coming into the game but the Dinos will be their toughest competition yet.

It’s the perfect day for a little bit of friendly competition among CAUS members and among our universities. The VP External at the University of Alberta Students’ Union and Chair of the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations, Aden Murphy and myself are placing our bets.

The winner of today’s game will be rewarded with a case of their favorite beer by the other. If Aden takes it home I will be delivering a case of Trois-Pistoles for Mr. Chair. When the Dinos do win, Aden will be getting me a case of Calgary’s very own Wild Rose WRaspberry Ale. I hope you all can tune into the game over the radio or see it live. Let the Battle of Alberta and the bet of the chairs begin! Oh and don’t let me forget, GO DINOS!
