What Did You Miss Friday?

--The Regina Rams were outscored 49-35 by Calgary to open up the Canada West football season.  The Dinos jumped out to a 21-0 lead, but Regina led the game at halftime by a score of 29-23. In the loss, Rams QB Noah Picton became the 1st in Canada West to hit 10000 career yards. He also moved into 5th in USports Canada career passing.

--The Montreal Alouettes won their 2nd straight game as they walked into Ottawa and bounced the REDBLACKS 21-11.  Antonio Pipkin had another solid game at quarterback for the Als throwing for 242 yards and running for one touchdown.

--The Pats got three assists from defenceman Marco Creta in a 4-1 win over Swift Current as they opened up the pre-season.. The regular season starts September 21.

--Josh Donaldson's days as a Blue Jay are over. He was traded late Friday to the Cleveland Indians. It ends a four year stay in Toronto that saw him win American League MVP once. . Across the 2013-17 seasons between stints with the A's and Blue Jays, Donaldson hit .282 with a .901 OPS, averaging 33 homers, 32 doubles, 98 RBIs and 98 runs scored per season.  The Jays also sent outfielder Curtis Granderson to Milwaukee

--The Los Angeles Rams and superstar defensive tackle Aaron Donald have finalized a six-year contract extension reportedly worth $135 million, including $87 million guaranteed. The Rams confirmed the length of the agreement, but not the financial terms. Donald's reported average annual salary of $22.5 million would be the largest for a defensive player in NFL history. His $87-million guarantee would be tied for the fourth-highest of any current contract.

Donaldson wins an MVP and Toronto can't wait to get him out of there. What did they get? Zero!
