Yep, the Riders are getting a commemorative loonie from the Canadian mint to celebrate 100 years. Pretty crazy. I know the Montreal Canadiens had one last year, but didn't think they would even look at the Green machine. The Riders are already the envy of the CFL. This will be the icing on the cake for all fans. And will bring out the haters in droves. For non-Rider fans, the team and it's fans are fast becoming the team to hate. Oh well I say. Worry about your own teams...

I'm not sure if should leak some news I received regarding the Riders. So I won't until it goes public. Let's just say some toes are being stepped on. ... On a different note, single game day tickets went on sale and Labour Day always the most popular game, sold out in 16 minutes. I was to be purchasing some extras for friends online. And had 4, then the site booted me. Not impressed. Now they are stuck with kijiji or ebay. Crap. But always good to see sell outs I suppose. Canada Day and July 17th are near sold out as well. Go Riders.

Ryan Dinwiddie and Todd Reesing are two of the Riders newest signings. Both Quarterbacks. Most of us have fond memories of Dinwiddie. As he was the one who threw us some pretty sweet interceptions at the 07 Grey Cup. So most people are questioning this signing. Saying he's no good and a loser. I disagree. That Grey Cup was Dinwiddies first career pro start...ever. Talk about jitters. He's 29 and could still blossom into a backup at the very least. And as far as Reesing goes, he had a stellar college career at Kanas. Look him up on youtube. He looks like a prototype CFL QB. I think both were good signings, and that's why we have training camp right?

So its the Flyers and Blackhawks for the Stanley Cup final. I'm not sure how excited I personally am for this. But it could be a good series. And both clubs have a lot of loyal followers. So in their eyes, it's a beautiful sight. And in my eyes, I hope for Sharp and Versteeg to get me some points in the draft! I'm closing in on $100. Ha!

Will the Habs be able to pull out another miracle comeback? I'm not so sure. Last nights game 4 in which they lost, was a brutal performance. Even boring. A stark contrast of game 3 where they dominated Philly. Ya Philly played good enough to win. But that was a free pass and hard to watch. I'm not sure either team was motivated in that game. ... This afternoon the Hawks can eliminate the Sharks in 4 straight. And head to the Stanley Cup final. This is great for my pool, where I have 4 Hawks remaining. But they need to score!!

The rumour is that Roughriders receiver Weston Dressler won't be ready for training camp. The allstar broke his leg late last year, and recovery has been slow. After rumours he would return for last years Grey Cup game, this seems like maybe a few set backs have happened. Word is, he'll be ready for week one.
