Everyone who loves CFL knows what's coming … the Labour Day Classic weekend! Besides Grey Cup week, it's as good as it gets. Even when the individual teams are struggling, the games are unforgettable. Love it! And with my Bombers with serious skin in the game this year for the first time in a long time, it's going to be a wild one on Sunday.
Argos and Ti-Cats: Ricky Ray vs. Tim Horton. Hope the stadium is done and Zach Collaros is up to scratch. If so, it's going to be fun. Is Chad Owens (the CFL's top all-round offensive weapon) playing or is he not? Difference maker for sure. I think my (wild card) money is on the Cats.
Esks and Stamps. How long have we been saying that the "Stamps are the most complete team in the league." And yet … there's always something. The road to the Grey Cup goes through Alberta, and that much is for sure … at least at this point in the schedule. Who gets the nod here in this version of the Battle of Alberta? Personally, I like the fact the Stamps are on a big roll.
RedBlacks and Als. Ottawa is not a bad team. Repeat, not a bad team. A bounce here, a Weston Dressler there, and the Henry Burris-led squad is in business. But they better hurry because old Hank isn't getting any younger. But look out if you think this team is a gimme …the RBs can sting. Will they win the Dressler sweepstakes? Guess we'll see how many peripheral benefits the province of Saskatchewan can offer up to land this season's biggest NFL waivers fish. Apparently local Regina entrepreneurs are offering everything from unlimited designer cupcakes to car rentals.
Labour Day Weekend folks. Enjoy!!
