Bad News For Riders

It looks as if the Riders will have to play the remainder of the regular season without Eddie Davis. The veteran defensive back suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee in the win over the Lions on Saturday. Head coach Ken Miller says he is definitely out for this Saturday's game in Hamilton and he is likely out for what is expected to be a huge first place showdown at Mosaic Stadium November 7 against Calgary.

Tad Kornegay could move from linebacker to defensive half with Jerrell Freeman taking Kornegay's spot at linebacker or Chris McKenzie could move into Davis' spot.

McKenzie played well last week. He'll be alright, but lets hope Eddie is back for the Western final.

If Mitch opens the Blog to include "Pop Culture" components where an item like Wrestling is included that could be justified. Wrestling is sports entertainment and it could be discussed like movies or TV shows along those lines.

Basically wrestling is the ability to tell a story in a physical manner. Agreed it is not for everyone. Having stated that this industry is the top of the line when it comes to attracting that all important demographic of 18-35.

I have always thought Hockey was the greatest sport. Nobody sells it properly. When Dana White took MMA mainstream in 8 short years that tells me hockey should be able to work in any market in North America. The problem is the "suits" don't know how to push the proper buttons.

Shane McMahon just resigned from WWE. He was the guy that did all of their marketing, telvision deals, multimedia, and promotions. They are a billion dollar family business. I looked at his transferable skill set, age (39), and business sense. He would be awesome in some type of creative role within the NHL. Sadly it will not happen. We're stuck with the Gary and Bill show forever.
