What Did You Miss Friday?

--Johnny Manziel made his CFL debut Friday.  He was 9 of 11 for 80 yards in a 36-18 loss to Toronto.  Manziel took 23 snaps in all.

--Former CFL quarterback Drew Tate has retired.   The former Calgary and Ottawa signal-caller who came to the CFL after a stellar career with the University of Iowa is leaving football behind to pursue a career as a coach at Coastal Carolina.

--Pats forward Jake Leschyshyn has an NHL contract.  The Vegas Knights signed Leschyshyn to a three year entry-level contract. He was the Knights 2nd round pick in the 2017 draft.

--Ottawa Senators assistant general manager Randy Lee is facing a charge of second-degree harassment. He's accused of inappropriately touching and making lewd comments toward a hotel shuttle driver while in Buffalo for the N-H-L's scouting combine. Lee is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

--Chicago White Sox pitcher Danny Farquhar was back on the mound Friday. Joined by teammates, family and medical caregivers, Farquhar threw out the game's ceremonial first pitch.  Farquhar suffered a ruptured aneurysm after pitching in a game in April.  It was the first time he had been back on a baseball diamond.  While Farquhar won't pitch again this season, doctors believe he can make a comeback.
