--A poll of CFL media personalities believe the Edmonton Eskimos will do what the Riders did in 2013 and win the Grey Cup on their home field. 23% of respondents picked Edmonton to win followed by both Calgary and Saskatchewan at 22 %.  Someone even believes the Montreal Alouettes will win the Grey Cup this year.  38 % of those asked say the Riders made the best off-season moves.   67 % say the Riders enjoy the biggest home-field advantage

--If Zach Collaros is playing for the Riders Sunday in Edmonton, he is not telling anyone.  Collaros would not say if he will be under center for part of the team's first exhibition game against the Eskimos when asked.  All he would say is its the coaches decision as to whether or not he will play.  620 CKRM's game-day coverage Sunday starts at noon with kickoff at 3. 

--What did you miss in the world of hockey?  Nothing!  The Stanley Cup Final doesn't start until Monday and it was a day off at the Mastercard Memorial Cup.  The host Regina Pats will play Hamilton tomorrow night in the semi-final. Acadie-Bathurst awaits the winner in Sunday's final.

--Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo has been suspended for 80 games by Major League Baseball following a positive test for a performance-enhancing substance. The commissioner's office says he tested positive for E-P-O. It's a hormone that stimulates the red blood cell production and often has turned up in the test results for cyclists. 

-- Police took veteran N-F-L guard Richie Incognito to a Florida mental hospital after he allegedly threw weights and tennis balls at gym employees and another patron and told officers the government is spying on him. Boca Raton police released a report today detailing officers' interaction with Incognito after the incident. Incognito announced earlier this year that he was retiring from football after 11 seasons, the last three with the Buffalo Bills.
