Friday thoughts

It's a Friday and I have thoughts. That in itself is a great accomplishment, no?

  • Andy Fantuz has been released by the Chicago Bears. Maybe, just maybe he'll be back in a Saskatchewan Roughriders uniform within two weeks.
  • I think the Saskatchewan Roughriders just might upset the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the Labour Day Classic.
  • If the defense can slap Buck Pierce around a bit, things could get pretty interesting.
  • However, the Rider offense also has to contend with the league's best defense. Darian Durant has to get rid of the ball quickly, and accurately.
  • If DD has a sub-par performance, the Bombers' defense may outscore the Riders.
  • The RMF Unicorns take part in their own Labour Day Classic on Monday against Yorkton.
  • Let's hope our season-opening two game losing skid comes to an end Monday!
  • Our offensive coordinator may be a little growly tonight, as his Martin Monarchs lost 60-0 to O'Neill in high school action last night.
  • Frankly, I'm just glad that the football program at Martin is still alive and kicking. That alone is worth celebrating.
  • Wade Belak is gone too? What the hell is going on this summer?
  • Three NHL brawlers gone within weeks of each other. Is there a connection, or is it just a horrible, horrible coincidence?
  • The U of R Rams are favoured to win the Canada West conference in a preseason poll. The fun starts tonight against UBC.
  • If you like football, you'll want to check out a Rams game or two this season. CIS football is good value for your entertainment dollar.
  • The Regina Pats open the WHL preseason at home (Cooperators Centre) to Moose Jaw tonight. It's a battle between a rebuilding club, and one expecting to contend for an east division championship this season.
  • Anyone been to that new Taste of Tuscany restaurant yet? Your reviews are welcome!
