Friday thoughts

It's been a while since I posted on a Friday. Let's see what falls out when we shake the cranial tree:

  • It's a local sports smorgasbord this weekend! You could go to the Pats game tonight, or attend the cultural phenomenon known as High Impact Wrestling. Tomorrow afternoon, it's the Riders vs Argos on the tube. In the evening, the University of Regina Rams are home to the University of Alberta. On Sunday afternoon, the Regina Thunder is home to Winnipeg in junior football action. Wow!
  • And if you're into curling, the Tartan Club hosts the Horizon Laser Vision Classic all weekend long.
  • Somehow I have to get yardwork done in the midst of all that. Should be interesting!
  • If the Riders can keep Argos tailback Cory Boyd at bay, they shouldn't have too many problems with the Boatmen. They do need to get some pressure on quarterback Dalton Bell though.
  • Where are all those "experts" who thought the Riders were crazy to start James Patrick at safety instead of the long-gone Scott Gordon? Wanna bet they're the same "people" who've been dumping all over the coaching staff this season?
  • So, if the Pats are not holding down a playoff spot by the time the WHL trade deadline rolls around, it seems obvious they would (or should) trade Carter Ashton for prospects. What about Jordan Weal?
  • I think Weal will be back in the WHL next year, so I'm not sure if I'd "weal and deal". (sorry)
  • LeBron James is playing the race card in explaining the negative response to his departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Really? Just when you think somebody can't possibly look like a bigger douche than they already do.
  • Henry Burris wears a bra as a gag at a birthday party. Somebody takes pictures. Okay, I get that. But why did the woman in the photos have her shirt off? Just wondering...
  • RiderGirl disappears, and Mitchell Blair reappears on the airwaves. Coincidence? I kid!
  • Speaking of the airwaves, we're still looking for a volunteer roving reporter for Locker Talk on Access 7. If you're interested, let me know!
