Because of real smart scheduling on my part, Saturdays are all booked up for me through the end of the semester. If they’re a little more open on your end, you might consider watching “Last Best Hope” at 7 p.m. today in Schiable Auditorium. From what I can tell, it’s a documentary about the Dutch resistance in World War 2, which is pretty interesting, plus there will be a panel discussion with the filmmaker. Pro tip: free events like this make you seem cultured and cool to your significant other. – Spencer Tordoff / Editor-in-Chief

Did you spend your adolescence dreaming of a real life fight club into which you could channel all of your repressed anger and depression? I sure did. As a much more mellow and evened out adult, I was still psyched to hear The WWE Live Road to Wrestlemania is going to be at the Carlson Center today at 1 p.m. Get your tickets online for a whopping $115… I mean that’s expensive, but how often do you get a chance to watch some WWE fists being thrown in this town? – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

For anyone who is looking for a workout, the TRX class goes from 1- 2 p.m. Using one’s own body weight and suspension to get a good workout, TRX is a good way to stay healthy and finish out your Monday. Ben Ellis / Web Editor
