What Did You Miss Monday?

--Rene Paredes kicked five field goals, including a 43-yarder with no time remaining, to boot the Calgary Stampeders to a thrilling 23-20 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos in the Labour Day Classic.  Calgary has now won seven straight Labour Day games at home against their provincial rival.  Edmonton is now 6-5--third in the west a half game behind the Riders while Calgary is 9-1

--4th quarter touchdowns by Alex Green and Brandon Banks lifted Hamilton to a 42-28 win over Toronto in the other CFL game Monday.  Jeremiah Masoli threw for 385 yards and three touchdowns in the win. The Ti-Cats are 5-5 with the Argos falling to 3-7.

-- Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson says Nick Foles will start against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night in the NFL season opener. Carson Wentz still hasn't been medically cleared for contact as he comes back from surgery last December to repair two torn ligaments in his left knee.

--Ottawa Redblacks linebacker Kyries Hebert will be watching from the sidelines again because of an illegal hit. The CFL announced on Monday that Hebert has been suspended for two-games for hitting Montreal Alouettes receiver B.J. Cunningham to the side of his head in a "reckless manner" in Friday's contest. The penalty was issued after CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie held a telephone hearing with Hebert and a representative of the league's Players' Association.

--New York Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom tied a modern-era major league record Monday night by allowing three or fewer runs in 25 straight starts in a single season. The Cy Young candidate, who is just 8-8 despite a sparkling 1.68 ERA this season, went six innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers and left with the game tied at 1-all.  New York won the game 4-2

Only in the CFL...

Flagerent repeat offender given minor 2 game suspension. This Kries Hebert seems to have no brains to comprehend or correct his dangerous actions, he's one moment away from taking someone's life. BAN - Kries Hebert from Canadian football Randy Ambrosie.

When playing good teams, you have to play solid football. Edmonton turned the ball over WAYYYYYYYY too many times. Calgary handed them that game on a silver platter and Edmonton wouldn't take it.

Let that low level dipsh*t Kyries Hebert I can tap him Inuit Fist Style on the Temple upside his "empty dark" cave skull, maybe he can find sense of sense after that kind of hit. I'll go easy on him, extra easy, won't knock him out, just make him cry. Andre Prouix and his he of the 2 game suspension flunky Randy Ambrosie can supervise the knockdown.
