Playground hosts nights of rotating DJs


Kyle Mittan

ermilo “Herm” Guzman has been around the block, both locally and abroad. The 39-year-old Tucson native has been DJing in the area for the past two decades, and has even made trips to Guatemala and Sweden. Guzman is a little more seasoned than the crowd he serves, which he said consists mainly of club-goers in their twenties. But he’s OK with that. “I’m one of the older guys in town, I guess,” he said with a laugh. But his age, along with his experience, is what gives him his edge, Guzman said. The Tucson club scene veteran is set to play two separate sets on both floors of Playground Bar & Lounge this Friday as part of the club’s weekly Merry Go Round. The event, which features four DJs rotating performances through the night, will also include local DJs Jason E., Bonus and Phatal. Conceived in June and launched in July, the idea of Merry Go Round came about through a collaboration between the four DJs and Ronnie Spece, Playground’s entertainment director. The event puts two DJs up at the same time — one on the club’s ground floor and the other on the rooftop — and two on deck, rotating every hour for four hours. The name goes along with the bar’s “playground” concept, Spece said, adding that the bar has seen a positive response since the event’s inception.

“People have responded well,” Spece said in an email. “Attendance on Friday nights has noticeably increased since we started. We are especially pleased since summer can be a difficult time in Tucson to launch a nightlife event.” In a world where hip-hop music is seeing a decline and EDM is on the rise, Guzman said he feels fortunate to be a resident DJ at a club where he’s free to play whatever he wants. He and his fellow DJs have learned what the local crowd wants to hear, he said. “I’m very fortunate to have the opportunity to play at Playground,” Guzman said. “The crowd might not necessarily be our age group, but we’re still given the opportunity to play music from stuff that we grew up on, the classic stuff that we have grown to know and love, as well as new music that typical 21- to 28-year-old club-goers like to hear.” Additionally, playing alongside each other has its own benefits for the DJs. “Everybody gets a chance to see what everybody else is doing for the crowd,” said Jason Ehrehman, who goes by the stage name Jason E. “The main benefit that comes with playing with other DJs is that you know they’re going to keep you on your toes all night. You’ll always be challenged to bring something new that’s going to make the crowd go nuts.” Having all served their fair share of time in the local club scene, Guzman said the four DJs have grown to be “like brothers,” which has made it easier to perform together. The result for the crowd, he said,

Artists turn to cardboard for fundraiser


Casey knox

his week, cardboard boxes and recycled products will be put to creative use at the second annual Cardboard Ball. The cardboardthemed dance party will return to the Tucson community on Saturday. Last year, the first Cardboard Ball was brought to fruition under Mykl Wells, a local Tucson artist and cofounder of the All Souls Procession. Wells was invited to Italy to compete in a month-long artistic competition called Cartasia in 2012 and hosted the Cardboard Ball in Tucson as a fundraiser for his trip. This year, the event is intended to raise funds to finance workshops for the upcoming All Souls Procession. Thanks to these funds, community members who want to participate in making crafts for the procession will be able to do so for free. Buying things like clay, paint and flour for paper maché will encourage people to become active contributors to the All Souls Procession, Wells said.

New Zealanders take to Old Pueblo


The Naked and Famous today. It was Alisa who was sitting in her room and Thom [Powers] was on his computer and she was playing around on the keyboard and came up with the lead line. And Thom told her to keep playing it and he started playing chords around it and eventually it just came together very organically. That was one of those songs which for some reason just worked instantly. The lyrics formed very naturally around that song as well.


n tour to promote its sophomore record, New Zealand indie five-piece The Naked And Famous will play the Rialto Theatre on Sunday. The Daily Wildcat caught up with bassist David Beadle to talk about the band’s recent success and new record. DW: You guys experienced quite a bit of success following your first record, garnering a bunch of nominations for some really huge awards. What’s it been like touring with all of that backing you up now? What’s different? Beadle: It initially happened so fast. Any successes were all very new and we weren’t really sure what they meant until after the fact. So touring for us was just a really exciting part of being a musician and we were so glad we were afforded the opportunity to do that, because not many New Zealand bands do. On this record, for In Rolling Waves, we’ve come to realize that those successes, you don’t want to take them for granted. We spent a really long time in pre-production for In Rolling Waves and we’ve put everything we can into the live show, including production, lighting, sound, everything. It’s going to be great. What were some of the things you set out to do differently or change when you recorded In Rolling Waves versus when you put together your debut record?

What has been the most memorable part of your tour so far?


We were excited about the prospect of having our music heard in Australia, but on this record, In Rolling Waves, the level of maturity and songwriting has increased. It’s just an evolution of what we were doing with Passive Me, Aggressive You; our understanding of music and what works live has led to more wellthought out parts and a deeper appreciation for music. You guys played Phoenix almost two years ago. How do you like the southern Arizona

crowds? I remember playing and I remember it being incredibly hot, but the crowd was awesome. It was really cool and we can’t wait to get back. Tell me a little about “Young Blood” and how that song came together? It’s just one of those things. We’ll say how strange it is that if [vocalist and keyboardist] Alisa [Xayalith] had never come up with that keyboard line ... then maybe we wouldn’t be

‘Don Jon’ a spin on classic rom-com




s writer, director and star, Joseph Gordon-Levitt proves he is a triple threat in Hollywood with “Don Jon.” Though he’s acted in countless pictures, this marks Gordon-Levitt’s feature-length film directorial and writing debut. The result can be considered an allaround success, a largely enjoyable experience even if it doesn’t deliver on all of its promises. Jon Martello is a creature of habit, a 20-something Lothario who looks like he was birthed by the Jersey Shore itself. He goes to the gym (probably skipping leg day), keeps both his ride and his bachelor pad of an apartment in such spotless condition that it verges on neurotic, never misses Catholic Mass with his Italian family and goes to the club with his boys. His prowess with the opposite sex — he shoots them a look, and that’s all it takes — has earned him the nickname “Don” from his two buds. He doesn’t get attached to women. But Martello also has one more passion (read: addiction) that he doesn’t disclose to anyone: Internet pornography. Let it be known that porn has a prominent

presence in the movie. Don likes his porn more than sex with actual women because he is only truly able to “lose himself” when in front of a computer screen. For those who may find it uncomfortable, Martello’s object of addiction is only displayed to the audience in quick, jarring edits. Not every explicit detail is shown, but the movie gets about as close as possible to showing uncensored pornography. One night at the club, though, Martello meets a “10” in Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson), who won’t let him in her pants quite as easily as most girls. She’s gorgeous, and as far as Martello’s concerned, that’s what counts. The two start dating and, of course, complications occur. In night school, Martello meets a quirky, much older woman, Esther (Julianne Moore), and the two gradually divulge their secrets to each other. Both women will end up teaching him, in one way or another, about love, making love and sex. The movie derives its humor from the quirks of Martello’s life. At family dinner, his tit-for-tat, overly aggressive conversations with his dad, Jon Senior (an extremely funny Tony Danza), make for great scenes. Director Gordon-Levitt

puts the film on the back of actor GordonLevitt, who effectively carries the entire picture. Inspired camerawork shows Martello watching porn the same way his girlfriend Barbara watches romantic comedies: The screen lighting their wide eyes as they watch, wishing — or expecting — real life to follow suit. Martello wishes that women would be porn stars in bed, and Barbara wants a fairytale relationship. Something fails to ring true in the third act of the movie, when Martello falls for Moore’s character. It is understood that this shows Martello’s development, but it is just too large of a pill to swallow given what’s been shown of Martello’s character thus far. The jump from shallow playboy to man falling in love with a widowed woman in her fifties feels forced. But missing pieces aside, thanks to GordonLevitt, “Don Jon” is a fresh take on romantic flicks.

his weekend, serial killers, rotting zombies and clowns will take to the streets. In its 23rd year, Nightfall returns to Old Tucson today with new attractions and scarier shows. For the better part of the year, Old Tucson is a Western-themed town whose streets are trodden by cowboy boots and horses drawing carriages. But for one month out of the year, the park is transformed into a Halloween-themed attraction for the Tucson community. In its early days, the theme of Nightfall followed an evil doctor who performed experiments on the patients in a local asylum. Today, the park makes an effort to introduce a variety of Halloween scares, from post-apocalyptic dead zones to clowns with beady black eyes. Rob Jensen, the manager of entertainment for Old Tucson, said that Nightfall is trying to raise the bar this year in terms of the entertainment it has to

offer. “Each year is always about topping previous years,” Jensen said. For example, he added, Nightfall has moved its largest stunt and pyro show into the rodeo arena, allotting more space for stuntmen to perform. “You can spend six hours out here on a Nightfall night and never get bored.” Audience members can expect dangerous stunts this year, such as a motorcyclist jumping through a 50-foot ball of fire, according to Pete Mangelsdorf, the chief executive officer and general manager of Old Tucson. Nightfall will also introduce a magic and illusion show this year called “Magic of the Macabre,” performed by John Shryock and Mari Lynn. It is also bringing back the train ride, run by gargoyles, to appeal to children. Mangelsdorf said the park has set itself apart from other haunted attractions. “From the moment you walk into Old Tucson, it’s an experience,” Mangelsdorf said. “We have an entire town, not just a single haunted house.”

Old Tucson has been built on a foundation of fame and tradition, hosting more than 300 movies and shows since 1939, and Nightfall has been running for over 20 years. At this time each year, the dusty roads and rustic buildings are transformed into the largest haunted town in Southern Arizona, according to Jensen. “We pride ourselves in being the largest and longest-running Halloween attraction in Southern Arizona,” Jensen said. Although Nightfall has earned its reputation in Tucson as a frightening park, its organizers are also looking to include attractions for children. Among other walkthroughs, the “Creepy Crawly Cave” was created for children and people with a low scare tolerance. “There are some areas of the town that are tamer than others,” Jensen said. Walkthroughs are rated with one, two or three skulls to give attendees a general idea of how scary each attraction is. A carousel and inflatable attractions have also been introduced to the park.


What: Nightfall Where: Old Tucson, 201 S. Kinney Road When: Thursdays-Sundays until Oct. 31 Thursday and Sunday open 6-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday open 6 p.m.-12 a.m.

Andrew Kenworthy, the creative director of Old Tucson, said the organizers get a six-month creative stretch each year to plan how they will reinvent Old Tucson as Nightfall. “We try to mix things up,” he said, adding that his team goes through an extensive creative process to ensure that the park never uses the same idea more than two years in a row. This weekend, the park will offer an opening special: Entry is only $15 for all ages. Until Oct. 31, Nightfall will be open Thursdays through Sundays. On Thursdays, the park will give a $10 discount to college students who show their ID and two Coke product receipts, bringing the price of admission to $15. “It’s really a party atmosphere; it’s not just a haunted house,” Jensen said. “If we can put a smile on people’s faces, give them a good scare and give them a night out to forget their worries, we’ve done our job.” — Follow Arts reporter Casey Knox @Knox_Casey

Concert to benefit fire-damaged church JESSICA SCHRECKER


he loss of Tucson’s Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church to a fire left its congregation grieving. Church leaders hope to begin the recovery process with the Fire Benefit Concert for St. Demetrios this weekend. On May 29, St. Demetrios suffered severe damage from a fire that was started by a seven-day prayer candle left beneath a wooden cross. The temperature reached over 1,000 degrees — destroying icons, the sanctuary, the kitchen, Sunday school classrooms and the fraternal areas, said Father Earl Cantos. Preliminary estimates totaled more than $1 million dollars in damages. “We pretty much lost everything on the inside,” Cantos said. “There was so much damage throughout all of the complex … These last four months, we’ve been cleaning up all the smoke damage to try to get back in to at least honor properly.” Cantos said the damage caused by the fire not only impacted the church’s ability to host services, but also resulted in the cancellation of the 38th Annual Tucson Greek Festival, the church’s main fundraiser. Church leaders still wanted to host an event and open the church up to the community, so they decided to host the Fire Benefit Concert for St. Demetrios in an effort to raise funds for rebuilding. “Instead of the festival, we’re doing this benefit concert, which is going to be an awful lot of fun,” Cantos said.

Jim Howell, chair and performer for the event as well as lifelong member of the parish, said the decision to hold the event was an easy one. “We didn’t have a place to prepare for the festival, let alone hold it,” Howell said. “This concert means a great deal to us, to still have some type of event and reach out to the greater Tucson community.” The concert’s headliners will be Cantos’ brother Bill, an internationally known jazz pianist, and his wife, Mary Falcone. Ellington Big Band and The Jim Howell Band will also play. In addition to the performers, the event will also feature a museum showcasing items and photographs that survived the fire, Cantos said. For Howell, the benefit concert represents not just an opportunity to provide entertainment, but also a way to give back to a place important to his family. “My grandparents were married in St. Demetrios,” Howell said. “My parents, my sister and my wife and I were all married in the existing location. My kids were baptized in that church, as was I. To be able to contribute in a major way to my home and this community is really important to me.” With the funds from the benefit concert, church leaders hope to replace what was lost and continue serving the Tucson community. Cantos said church leaders are still deciding whether to restore the damage or move to an entirely new location. — Follow Arts reporter Jessica Schrecker @JKSchrecker

UAMA hosts weekly guitar performances


GABBY FERREIRA eekly recitals at the UA Museum of Art aim to prepare guitar performance students for an audience, while also providing a place for them to express

themselves. Thomas Patterson, director of Bolton Guitar Studies, estimates that the recitals have been around for about 10 years, though the program recently began holding them year-round. “We have one of the best guitar programs in the world,” he said, adding that students in the program come from all over to participate. The students who perform in the guitar recitals are all performance majors. According to Kathy Acosta, a guitar performance senior, students are required to perform at least four times in one semester. “It’s nerve-wracking to perform,” she said. “It helps to be in that situation every single week.” Students sign up on a weekly basis, and spots are coveted toward the end of the semester, when senior recitals and concert competitions loom. Though the students sign up for recitals in groups, much of the actual performance consists of solo pieces. “When you’re performing, you can see what’s working and what’s not,” said Misael Barraza, a second year master’s student studying guitar performance. “When you perform, you’re on the spot.” Performance majors must work to overcome the stage fright that often accompanies

performing in front of complete strangers. Bin Hu, a first year doctoral student in guitar performance, puts a more positive spin on it. “You are watching yourself,” Hu said. “You have to be in the position of the audience. That’s the hard part.” Zach Empkey, a guitar performance senior, said these recitals impact his performances in more ways than just forcing him to face stage fright and iron out mistakes. “They’re good for practicing performing,” he said. “Dressing up [and] sitting down in a concert setting gets you ready.” Patterson calls this process “smelting,” just like the technique used to draw metals out of ore. “We are removing impurities through the heat of performing,” he said. However, recitals aren’t just about students becoming comfortable with performing for a crowd. “We’re all trying to express ourselves,” Barraza said. ”We’re kind of quiet people.” During their performances, guitarists are “leading the audience to control their breath,” Hu said. “You know they are breathing with you and feeling what you want to say to them.”

MISAEL BARRAZA REHEARSES for Friday’s weekly Guitar Area Recital in the UA Museum of Art on Wednesday.

What is your favorite drink to make? At Tap & Bottle we just do pretty much beer and wine for our craft beer bar, so pouring beer is my favorite drink to make. What is your least favorite drink to make? We’re more of a beer and wine room than your typical bar, and so it makes it pretty simple. There’s nothing that is a pain in the butt to pour, nothing hard to make. Just tap beer. Personally, what is your favorite type of beer? The biggest, baddest IPA I can find — big and hoppy.

On the other side of the spectrum, what is something you don’t care for?

Anything made by AnheuserBusch — American white lager, you know, Miller, Coors, Budweiser — has no redeeming flavors whatsoever. You said this bartending gig?




Yeah, pretty much everyone here. None of us come from any backgrounds. We’re all just beer lovers. Most of us are home brewers. There’s got to be a special kind of feeling over there — where everyone’s new, everyone’s passionate, and the restaurant is brand new and unique. Oh, absolutely. We’re a hundred different personalities, but we’ve been open three months, and it seems like we’re old friends. We’re a family, for sure. Everyone shares the same passion.

How has business been, in those three months? It has been, almost every night, packed. It is standing room only. Is there a drinking trend that you’d like to see disappear? I think, in the type of ground and the regulars that we attract, no. I actually think the drinking trend as a whole, in this city, and state and even nationwide, is great. People are really starting to gravitate toward craft beers. The craft beer industry is booming; every year it takes market share from the big breweries … I think it’s an exciting time for beer and liquor right now in this country. It’s a renaissance right now. PHOTO BY AMY JOHNSON COMPILED BY ALEX GUYTON



Campus museum offers free admission for day


THE EXHIBIT “A WORLD WITHOUT BORDERS” is currently open for viewing at the Arizona State Museum.



his Saturday, the Arizona State Museum is participating in the Smithsonian Institution’s “Museum Day Live!”, which will see museums across the country opening their doors for free. The museum has been affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution since 2000 and first engaged in “Museum Day Live!” five years ago, said Deputy Director Irene Romano. The museum’s staff is pleased to offer free admission to the public as often as possible, she added, and hosts a number of other free events throughout the year. Recognized around the world, the museum is home to Native American basketry and pottery, which stand as two nationally designated collections, Romano said. “ASM is an incredible resource for the local community — a place where culture and science come together and where visitors gain an understanding of the rich cultural heritage of this region,” Romano said. “We would love the Tucson community to get to know ASM better and to participate in everything ASM has to

offer.” Romano said she loves to see families and students leave the museum enlightened with knowledge and, in some cases, a desire to learn more about Native American culture or to create their own works of art. “As a teacher and a museum professional,

IF YOU GO What: Museum Day Live! free admission Where: Arizona State Museum When: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday there is no greater pleasure than to inspire people to learn and invite people into your world,” she added. “We hope that all UA students graduate with some understanding of the uniqueness of this region, its culture and history.” The museum is always free to students. “Museum Day Live!” is a chance for members of the campus community to bring their families and friends to the museum for free.

Additionally, students will get a 10 percent discount in the gift shop, where unique gifts are for sale, Romano said. The Smithsonian’s “Museum Day Live!” shines a national spotlight on numerous American museums and their surrounding communities, said museum Director of Marketing Darlene F. Lizarraga. The museum is a place of exhibits, cultural celebrations, lectures, workshops, sales and travel tours. “We offer many meaningful opportunities and many fun reasons to experience the … enduring cultures of the region,” Lizarraga said. “We are here year-round for our community — especially the UA community.” The museum serves as a significant historical site in the state of Arizona, and “Museum Day Live!” raises awareness about the museum and the tribes of Arizona, said Assistant Curator Martina Dawley. “We want every UA student to have experienced ASM at least once — and hopefully many times — in their career here,” Romano said. “‘Museum Day Live!’ is a great way to begin that experience.” — Follow Arts reporter Erin Shanahan @ItsErinShanahan

wildcat weekend • 19


UCLA biggest test thus far Brian Peel After a successful nonconference schedule, Arizona soccer begins Pac-12 Conference play this weekend when it hosts the No. 4 UCLA Bruins on Sunday afternoon at Murphey Field at Mulcahy Stadium. Last Sunday, the Wildcats (51-3) knocked off the visiting Hawaii Rainbow Wahine 4-1 to conclude a non-conference slate that has given Arizona one of the best starts in the program’s history. Entering Sunday’s contest against the Bruins, Arizona is near the top in several Pac-12 statistical categories, including leading the conference in total goals scored with 23, at a clip of just over 2.5 per game. Several Wildcats have had success individually as well, with senior midfielder Jazmin Ponce’s six goals tying her for sixth in the Pac-12. Defensively, junior goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman’s 35 saves are good for third in the conference. Newcomers like junior forward Ali Doller and freshman midfielder Jaden DeGracie have played a pivotal role in the Wildcats’ early season run as well, with Doller second on the team with four goals and

making sure we get the W’s.” After Arizona’s annual open camp, freshman forward Tommy Bennett was offered a spot on the team. Current sophomores forward Dane Irving and goalie Dylan Hojnacki walked on as freshmen in 2012. The coaching staff has yet to pick a starting goalie. Senior Steven Sisler, Hojnacki and freshman Garrett Patrick have been competing for the title since the beginning of open camp. Much like Arizona football head coach Rich Rodriguez’s decision about who would start at quarterback this season, Hogan said he plans on waiting until opening day to announce who’s won the

DeGracie leading Arizona with four assists. DeGracie said the biggest reason for the team’s strong start is everyone’s determination. “To see the effort put in by the upperclassmen and the freshmen is just amazing, and I’m just so grateful to be a part of it all,” DeGracie said. “I just know we are always going to go out fighting, and regardless of the score, we are going to give whoever we play a heck of a

job in net. “We all have a really good relationship — competitive on the ice but friendly off the ice,” Sisler said. “I enjoy competition rather than no competition.” The Wildcats faced the thirdtoughest schedule in the ACHA last season, and this season’s is just as difficult, if not more so. Out of the 40 total games the team will play this season, 25 are against opponents ranked in the top 20. Hogan said that he will continue making difficult schedules because in order to be the best, you have to beat the best. Tonight the Wildcats head up to Flagstaff, Ariz., for the second straight year to face NAU in a two-game road series. The IceJacks (1-0-0) are an ACHA Division II squad. Last season Arizona went

game.” This Sunday will likely be the Wildcats’ sternest test of 2013, as No. 4 UCLA (8-1-0) brings one of the Pac 12’s best defenses to Tucson. Through nine games, the Bruins have only given up three goals, which ties them with Washington State for fewest goals allowed in the conference. UCLA’s only loss so far this season was at the hands of the defending national champions, the North Carolina Tar Heels, in

4-0 against NAU, outscoring it 23-9. IceJacks sophomore forward Kyle Mair scored a team-high three points last week after scoring one goal and assisting two. NAU won its first game of the season 8-4 over the Arizona Red Hawks of the Western States Hockey League. “We’re hoping for a strong defensive performance,” Hogan said. “We want to make sure that our seniors and our high offensive scoring guys are getting opportunities. We’re going to work through this weekend, making sure we’re playing very good hockey in week one.”

Durham, N.C. Since losing 1-0 to UNC, the Bruins have rebounded with four consecutive victories, outscoring their opponents 9-1 in the process. Freshman forward Darian Jenkins leads UCLA with seven goals and 15 total points. The Bruins also return two players who were All-Pac-12 first team last season: junior midfielder Sarah Killion and junior defender Abby Dahlkemper. Wildcat assistant coach Kylie Louw said the Bruins will be a difficult challenge, but at the same time, they are still just the next team on Arizona’s schedule. “We approach every game individually,” Louw said. “Every team is beatable, so we are going to approach them like we do every other game, which is to get the win.” Ponce also said she has confidence in her team. “We are ready for anything,” Ponce said. “We played two ranked teams already and played really well against both of them. They might have only been in the non-conference, but they still got us ready for the conference.”

homefield advantage aren’t the only factors favoring Washington. The team heads into tomorrow’s game with momentum and power. UW failed to meet expectations in 2012, and after an impressive 3-0 start to 2013, its big, fast and experienced lineup might be on too much of a roll for the unproven Wildcats. Washington senior quarterback Keith Price is in his fourth year of head coach Steve Sarkisian’s system. In his third year starting, the senior has the potential to end his Washington career as the greatest quarterback in school history. His 61 career touchdowns with a 64.4 completion percentage are both firsts in school history, and he still has almost a full season ahead of him. “That’s one heck of a quarterback,” Arizona cornerbacks coach David Lockwood said of Price. “He has some God-given talent…and so many more talented guys to throw the ball to. “But if we stick to the game plan and everyone is focused and trying to make the play, good things can only happen.” With a lack of experience, lack of momentum and uncontrollable stadium factors, the odds are against Arizona. But that doesn’t mean a win is out of reach. As Lockwood hinted at, tomorrow’s game will come down to who controls the tempo and who can make a play. Just ask Jenkins about his leap by the lake.

In 1921, it tried being the “Vikings,” but that was short-lived, and the Huskies live on today. The Huskies have an accomplished football history. They have won 15 conference championships, seven Rose Bowls and four NCAA national championships. They hold the record for the second-longest winning streak in the NCAA with 39 wins in a row. Football aside, Washington has some interesting quirks. In 1929, the school president at the time, Matthew Lyle Spencer, banned kissing on campus after he saw students “spooning” in a grassy area on campus. Washington also has some interesting alumni.

Arizona returns to spot of famous play luke della One play could be all it takes. No matter the noise, weather or force against you, sometimes all it takes is one player stepping up. That effort could be needed when Arizona plays the beast in No. 16 Washington (3-0) tomorrow. In 1998, Arizona entered a similar scenario, and if it wasn’t for a nine-yard quarterback scramble followed by a near-perfect front flip, one of the greatest seasons in the Wildcats’ history might have never happened. “I know it’s the 15th anniversary, so hopefully we can recreate some of that magic and get a win out there,” quarterback B.J. Denker said. What Denker is referring to is the “Leap by the Lake,” a game-winning, seasoncatapulting front flip over three Husky defenders by then-Arizona quarterback Ortege Jenkins. The improbable touchdown gave Arizona a three-point lead with just six seconds left. The Wildcats held their lead for the remaining time and beat the then-No. 20

Huskies 31-28. The Oct. 3, 1998 victory at Husky Stadium propelled Arizona to an 11-1 record and No. 4 ranking at the end of the regular season. The Wildcats then beat No. 16 Nebraska 23-20 in the 1998 Holiday Bowl. Washington, on the other hand, crumbled following the loss, finishing the season 6-5 and then lost 45-25 to Air Force in the Oahu Bowl. “I don’t know if we necessarily use [The Leap by The Lake] as motivation,” Denker said. “[It might be motivation] more for Washington because that was a huge game that we beat them.” Though Denker and the rest of the team can expect the same renowned loud and wet atmosphere that Jenkins faced at Husky Stadium in 1998, this time around, Washington is favored to win. Las Vegas puts the Wildcats as seven-point underdogs, which is being pretty kind to an Arizona team that hasn’t proven much so far. The thundering crowd and stormy

Joey Putrelo Third-year head coach Sean Hogan has the highest expectations for Wildcat hockey. He made this clear to his players at the start of the very first team meeting. “We’re in year three of my tenure here, and the future of this program is now,” Hogan said. “We’re going to be completely 100 percent committed to winning: winning as a hockey program, winning as a team and winning as a family.” Arizona is 19th in the preseason ACHA Division I coaches’ poll. After ending last season with a 15-221 record and a No. 20 ranking, the team missed the postseason for the seventh straight year. On their 28-man roster, the Wildcats have 18 returners, including a senior class of six. The team is fortunate to bring back two of its top three pointscorers in senior forwards Andrew Murmes and Ansel Ivens-Anderson. After scoring 17 goals with 31 assists, Murmes’ 48 total points led Arizona for the second straight season.

SENIOR FORWARD Eric Watters is one of 18 returning hockey players and six seniors.

Ivens-Anderson, who was selected as captain last Friday, tied for second on the team, accumulating 46 points on 22 goals and 24 assists. “A lot of the returners have played under me for two years now, and we’ve had two good years of culture change and I think they really get it now,” Hogan said.

Coincidentally, the National Weather Service says there is a 100 percent chance of rain on Saturday. Besides the inevitable precipitation, the Wildcats will also have to conquer the noise level at Husky Stadium, something that Washington is famous for. Husky Stadium currently holds the

record for hosting the loudest game, which was set in 1992 against the Nebraska Cornhuskers and clocked in at a whopping 135 decibels. This happened during the Huskies’ NCAA national championship reign; they won back-to-back championships in 1990 and 1991. Because of the remodeling of the stadium, the noise level will most certainly be high this weekend. The track surrounding the field was removed, which brings fans closer to the action. But noise isn’t the only thing the fans at U-Dub are famous for. The “wave” that occurs at sporting events everywhere originated at the University of Washington. In 1981, Robb Weller, a former UW yell leader, and Bill Bissell, the Husky Marching Band director, came up with the idea. Now the wave happens not only at football games but baseball and soccer — and all over the world. Some other inventions that come from UW? Bubble gum, vinyl,
