Talk about this story

The 1953 Tony-award-winning play "The Crucible" makes a stop at the UA on Sunday. For $8 you too can experience the powerful story about witchcraft in Salem, Mass. Billed as a classic, the play starts at 1:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Complex's Marroney Theatre. Tickets can be picked up at the Fine Arts box office, or you can call 621-1162. This is a preview showing, and tickets shouldn't last long.

Free massages are always nice. Swing by the Commuter Student Lounge on the third floor of the UA Memorial Student Union and get yours today. You have to schedule yours ahead of time, so make sure to call 621-7597 or stop by to assure yourself a spot. No catches or hidden agendas here. The times available are 1:20, 1:40, 2 and 2:20 p.m. It is all first-come, first-serve, so assure yourself a slot, and show up early. This is being given by the Desert Institute.

Weekends are always a swell time to check out what is going down on the UA sports scene. And this weekend promises to be a doozie. Swimming takes on the New Mexico Lobos today at the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center, located on East Enke Drive and North Campbell Avenue. The competition jumps starts at 2 p.m., and all swimming events are free. Come and see many Olympic medalists in action, like Beth Botsford and Amanda Beard, both gold medalists from Atlanta in 1996. Soccer is honoring the women's soccer World Cup victory all weekend, as the women from Oregon come to town in back to back Pac-10 matchups. Friday night at 7 they battle Oregon State, then turn around to face the Oregon Ducks Sunday at 1 p.m. All women's soccer matchups take place at Murphey Stadium, which is located at East 15th Street and North Plumer Avenue. Soccer star Chrissy Sanford leads the Wildcats as they fight off the northwest challenge. Men's and women's basketball each takes to the hardwood this weekend with exhibitions against foreign club teams. The women's team takes on SBC Prerov Czechoslovakia, a Czech club team, and men's team takes on Alita, a Lithuanian club team. The women's game is Friday at 7 p.m. and the men's is Sunday 3 p.m. Both games are at the McKale Memorial Center. And of course, there is football, as the leap by the lake will try for part two as the Wildcats attempt to breathe life into their season. Kickoff is at 1:30 p.m., and there are limited tickets still available, so stop by Arizona Stadium before the game and hope for the best.
