Dave’s Dis N’ Dat For The Week That Was!

It’s Friday and the start to some downtime for myself and the family!

That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a lot going on in the world of sports. To head into the weekend here are my random thoughts on the week that was.

What did Winnipeg do to the CFL? Three home games ALL on Thursday nights, geesh no wonder a lot of Bomber faithful are coming to Investors Group Field dressed as seats!

When the Saskatchewan Roughriders return to action next weekend they will play a second consecutive game under the Saturday Night Lights at Mosaic Stadium. While fans in Regina love the late starts what about those travelling into the game?
Anyone else vote that we strap a couple of flags to the sides of CFL Quarterbacks? I have no idea what is and isn’t roughing the passer and whether or not the quarterback can even be tackled anymore.

Some big injuries to start the season seem to have leveled off the field. Jon Cornish, Chad Owens, Andre Durie, Chris Getzlaf, Travis Lulay, Nic Lewis, Zack Collaros, and Jamal Richardson (just to name a few) are all absent from action with various ailments. AND you may be able to add Fred Stamps to that list after leaving the field last night on a stretcher.

Back to penalties and the CFL is quickly becoming the Can’t have Fun League. Odell Willis’ firing the ball into the stands not the best idea and a taunting penalty was probably warranted. I for one miss the Jermaine Copeland type celebrations that players came up with.

Cars are back on the track at Auto Clearing Motor Speedway tomorrow night. If you are looking for an excellent night out with the family hit up at Macs Store for your tickets and head on out!

If Weyburn’s Graham DeLaet doesn’t make the cut at the British Open are you concerned? A respectable opening round seems to be going by the wayside with a tough start at this writing to round two. That being said do you still believe he will pick up his first win this season?

Will/Can the Toronto Blue Jays turn it around? The Blue Birds picked up a discarded pitcher from Oakland off the waiver wire yesterday. I think it’s time for Alex Anthopolis et all to fish or cut bait.

Why is the Western Major Baseball League not catching on in Saskatoon? 150 or so faithful are out at the ball park when the Jackets take to the field. The ball is excellent and night out at the park is never a bad thing? No the Jackets are not enjoying a lot of success this season and if they were I’m still not sure whether or not fans would come out.

One more, and a tip of the cap to the Saskatoon Blades. The club certainly is doing everything they can to stay top of mind and involved in the community. It’s going to be an interesting season on and off the ice but the Bridge City Bunch are doing their part to ensure that you know that they are around, invested in the community and set to hit the ice running (if you will).

That’s it for today. Enjoy the weekend and check back soon!
