This And That
The weekly collection of thoughts running through my muddled mind in no particular order
--The winner of Sunday's game at Commonwealth will represent the West at the Grey Cup.
--While I think the Eskimos have the better football team right now, the Riders have the better coaching staff. I'll take Corey Chamblin over an inexperienced as a head coach Chris Jones any day of the week.
--The dynamic of this game will change tremendously if Matt Nichols starts at QB for the Eskimos in place of Mike Reilly and if Reilly should start, how much mobility does he have. Sunday could be a great one for Chick, Foley and Tearrius George.
--I'm not surprised Darian Durant isn't starting. It won't surprise me if Durant is not under center again until 2015.
--Lulay or no Lulay, the Lions will not beat Montreal.
--After all the talk about the disparity between the East and West this year, would it be a good thing for the CFL or a bad thing if an Eastern team won the Cup?
--There were only three 1000 yard receivers in the CFL this year. Does that or the fact 13 percent or over 1600 CFL plays this season resulted in a penalty represent a bigger concern to you.
--With the Kootenay Ice being one of the worst teams in the WHL's Eastern Conference, do they trade Sam Reinhart and if they do who gets him? Reinhart could be the missing piece for several teams. His status may also affect the trade value for Morgan Klimchuk. I would expect the Pats to trade him at some point in the near future as well.
--Week 11 NFL Lock Of The Week --- Saints over Bengals
Week 11 NFL Upset Of The Week --- Colts over Patriots
--Oh Connor McDavid, your hand had better be fine when it comes time for the puck to drop at the World Juniors. Save your fights for the big time kid when you will be getting paid. Don't do it now!
--I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking its a TSN hockey game from 20 years ago when Paul Romanuk is behind the mike.
--Congrats to Jordan Eberle on his 100th career goal Thursday night against Ottawa.
--Its not even minus 20 and I feel damn cold outside. What's it going to be like when its minus 40?!
--In what has to be the cruelest and coldest dig of the week, several took to Twitter when it was announced Kobe Bryant had missed 13,418 field goals in his career that it was equivalent to Chris Milo this year. That's funny, yet oh so cold!
--The boys (and girls) of High Impact Wrestling are back at it again tonight at the Hungarian Club in a 7 o'clock start. Alas, other events have me away from the grappling this evening, but I will be checking in to see what's going on. If you have nothing planned on this Friday night, go down and see what its all about. A lot of people saw what it was all about at the Chad vs Ballsy 104.9 The WOLF party last month at Queensbury and I'm guessing some of that crowd will make an appearance tonight. Sadly, I can tell you there will be no Brittany vs Lady Luck match tonight, but hey it might come someday. If you've never been to Gronkville, go check it out, but make sure you have your shots first.
--Who is going to play center field for the Blue Jays this year and how exactly did they fleece Detroit. Anthony Gose for the Tigers top prospect? Anthony Gose??
--Dave Naylor's piece on the Stastny brothers and their defection to North America was brilliant.
--Has anyone in Western Canada noticed the start of the Toronto Raptors?
--That's all I got. Have a great weekend. GO RIDERS!! GO SEAHAWKS!!
