This and That

--Welcome to Friday and the usual assortment of things running through my muddled mind.   As always, these come in no particular order.

-We have a long ways to go until CFL training camp begins.  With that being the case, how would you rank the starting QB's in the league as it stands right now.   I would still put Bo Levi Mitchell and Mike Reilly in the numbers 1 and 2 spot, but who is number 3. Is it Jeremiah Masoli? Is it Cody Fajardo? Is it Vernon Adams?  I would probably go Fajardo, but then again he is in my own backyard.   Are Fajardo and Adams that much different when you take a good look at it.  Where does Trevor Harris fit in the equation.  Let the debate begin!

--Say what you will about Bo Levi, but he needs to get his Grey Cup ring and his MOP ring back. The bigger question is why are you leaving those things in your vehicle!!  In this day, you just can't do that---not even for a second!

--Is CFL week dead? If it is that's a shame as the league had something they could really work with.

--The Chiefs or the Niners?  Who have ya got in Super Bowl 54. I'm taking KC to win 31-21.  I just think Patrick Mahomes and that Kansas City offence will have their way with the Niners defence once they get it figured out.  It may take a quarter and a bit, but once they get rolling, they will be visiting the endzone.

--I'm OK with the Riders holding training camp in Regina this year.  Its been a long time since that happened.  Some think with the amenities Mosaic Stadium has that it should be there every year.  The Riders want to take their product to Saskatoon too and share it with people in the Bridge City and camp is the perfect time to do that.

--Robyn Silvernagle will be back at the Scotties as the host rink after winning the Saskatchewan title Tuesday afternoon in Melville.  After finishing third at her first Scotties last year in an event where she won the round-robin, Silvernagle will be a tough out with a home province crowd firmly behind her, It is going to be a lot of fun at Mosaic Place next month when the Scotties comes back to Moose Jaw.

--As for the men, there is nothing to indicate that we won't see a Kirk Muyres-Matt Dunstone final for the second year in a row.  The two meet for the first playoff spot this afternoon.  One has to think its the first of three games between the two at the SaskTel Tankard with that last game going Sunday afternoon in the final.

--It's the last regular season home games for the Cougar basketball teams this weekend.  Where did the time go?

--Can't help but see Max Paddock is thriving in Prince Albert since his trade from the Pats.  He's unbeaten in regulation going 4-0-0-2 with a goals against average of 1.44 and a save percentage of 946 with one shutout. 

--The Battle of Alberta appears to be back.  Let's see what Saturday brings in Calgary. You can't tell me the NHL doesn't want to see a playoff series between the Flames and Oilers.

--The Kobe Bryant tragedy will be one of those "where were you when" moments.  It is still hard to comprehend.  Just a horrible, horrible story.  Like him or not, the impact of Kobe on basketball and sports as a whole was immense.  When you are referred to as your nickname or your first name and not your last name (ie: Tiger, Shaq, Junior, A-Rod), you know you have done something.

--Kavis Reed has another football job.  He is going to be the offensive co-ordinator for the Edmonton Wildcats of the PFC.  You gotta start somewhere right!?

--That's all I got.  Enjoy the Super Bowl!
