Art Fair (Best Local Festival)
Any event that prompts aspiring
young capitalists to sell parking
spots on their front lawns must be
good for the city. Plus, in addition to
promoting a great deal of artistic

culture during the summer months,
the Art Fair also graciously prevent-
ed the patchouli-scented Hash Bash
from claiming a victory in this cate-
gory, a fate for Ann Arbor far worse
than :Jerry's death.

Beck (Best Concert in the Past
Year) Who's the man singing in
falsetto and making all the ladies
scream - shut yo' mouth! But I'm
just talking about Beck, the per-
former who put on, according to the
voters, the best Ann Arbor concert in
the last year.
The Nectarine (Best Dance Spot)
With its bright lights and booming
bass, the Nectarine is not only a
leading campus nightclub but also
the most prominent cause of student
seizures since the release of the
original Nintendo. For a flaming
good time, be sure to get your
groove on Friday nights when it's
raining men.
WCBN and 89X - tie (Best
Radio Station) Whereas student-run
88.3 WCBN tries in vain to play the
tunes you've never heard (and, in
some cases, the tunes you never
want to hear again), Windsor's 89X
does its best to cram as many mod-
ern rock chart-toppers into every lis-
tening hour as commercially possi-
ble. And, according to voters, both
divergent approaches sound like a
smash hit.
The Blind Pig (Best Live Music
Venue) How can you beat a crystal clear
sound system, a spacious, wooden dance
floor and a nice variety of funk, rock and
even - gasp - local bands? Well, in
Ann Arbor you simply cannot, as the
Blind Pig mauls the competition in terms
of places to see a good show.

As the hockey season draws to a
close, it is only natural to turn our
attention to the greatest trilogy of
hockey films ever made - none

DAVID ROCHKIND/Daily
Beck rocked Hill enough to be remembered fondly come balloting time.

Gordon, as in his younger days he
missed a last second shot, which
lost the championship for his team.
Gordon doesn't take to the kids at
first, but he soon teaches them the
subtleties of the game and makes
them believe that if only they can
make the playoffs anything can hap-
pen.
The hapless Ducks somehow
advance to the postseason, where,
with playoff beards in tow, their
miracle on ice picks up momentum
and takes them to the championship
game versus the seemingly unbeat-
able Hawks. Making matters even
more difficult for Gordon and the
Ducks is the fact that the Hawks are
led by Coach Reilly, an intimidating
man who was Gordon's coach and
mentor way back when. We couldn't
in good conscience giveTaway the
ending (and you call "The Sixth
Sense" a surprise twist!), but need-
less to say the right guys are cele-
brating when the clock stops tick-
ing.
The second installment takes our
heroes and their coach to a world
tournament for junior hockey play-
ers. A few new additions are made
to the Ducks' roster, elevating the
local team into something of a
national dynasty (akin to the Red
Wings and Blues joining forces to
play for the United States in the
Olympics).
After arriving in Los Angeles,
Coach Bombay becomes a little pre-
occupied with the whole glitzy
celeb scene - he wines and dines
with sports stars including Wayne
Gretzky, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
("Fletch"), Chris Chelios and Kristi
Yamaguchi. Bombay's fascination

other than the adventures of the
team called "The Mighty Ducks."
The series, which stars Emilio
Estevez as hotshot coach Gordon
Bombay and a much younger Joshua
Jackson (now all grown up in "The
Skulls") as team leader Charlie
Conway, teaches us the vital impor-
tance of hard work, hustle and heart.
The first episode of the trilogy
kicks off with Gordon getting
arrested for driving under the influ-
ence and having to coach a bunch of
ragtag kids on their local hockey
team as part of his sentence.
Returning to the city hockey league

with this new world causes trouble
within the team, but once again the
club rebounds to reach the champi-
onship game. We couldn't live with
ourselves if we gave away the end-
ing, but the right guys are singing
"We Are The Champions" by a
crackling campfire at the end of the
movie.
The third and final installment
takes the Ducks to prep school,
where as the new kids on the block
they must face off versus the

school's upperclassmen. Coach
Bombay makes only a few brief
appearances in the film, as by this
point the focus of the series has
shifted from the teacher to his
pupils.
Once again the Ducks face an
uphill battle against unbeatable
odds, forcing them to come together
as a team and earn the respect of
their fellow students. For an inter-
esting point of note that lends local
color to the experience, the third

In "D2," the midpoint of the trinity, Emilio Estevez scopes out the action with his team, incli
