    Preseason Week A - Game 2
    Saskatchewan at BC
    Date: Wednesday June 13th
    Time: 7:00 local
    TV/Radio: TSN / CKRM (Sask) / Team 1040 (BC)

    Again another game that won't be available to me but looking forward to seeing what the Leos do for an encore.

    Any word on if the roof will be open?

    Riders also made the announcement today that once again 70% of all CFL merchandise sold last year had the S and wheat fields on it. Expect to see a bunch of green there on the road and waiting for the Riders to invade the message boards should they carry a halftime lead.

    Myself I'll be watching the Riders training camp battle at MLB. Shomari Williams vs Mike McCullough.

    Blah, blah, blah... Riders. Prider Nation also claims to be bigger than the Dallas Cowboys. They're so popular their politicians are now taking a generation to decide to build a new stadium for them.

    Nice work to the Lions marketing staff, ripping off the Riders "100 years of Pride" slogan.

    The new B.C. slogan is "pride starts here" or something like that. :/

    I wonder if they all fit in the team limo.

    Gotta cheat a bit tonite - first game got boring after Smiley & Ricky Morose left the field. Now I'm watching DUETS on ABC cuz I love watching Jennifer Nettles sing, and John Legend ain't too bad. Not a huge fan of Smelly Klarkson or Robin Thick

    Durant has really sucked this game. The Riders are going to have a touch year. :D

    6 - 0 for BC, start of the second.

    Just you and me boss (aka Stamps Rule).....

    Who's gonna hang 'em up first?

    Pudge McCallum or The Pigskin Python, Geroy Simon?

    Both guys are so darn good at what they do (and I hate saying it) but McCallum at 43 having a 95% FG average? C'mon man!!!

    And Simon (36) saying he want to play 3 or 4 more years. I don't see a noticeable drop in speed from Simon. 10 years ago, he's probably running 40s in 4.45 to 4.55; now he's probably 4.5 to 4.65.

    McCallum is a machine.

    Simon doesn't have this year left in him, nevermind 3 or 4 more.

    Start of the second half.

    BC 20 - Sask 3!

    Levi Brown in for crappy Durant who didn't do a single good thing all night.

    Wow, pick six by Levi Brown. Not a great start for the qb.

    Am I the only one not impressed by TSN tonight cheaping out on the coverage? No panel. No halftime discussion? Pathetic.

    Levi Brown's second throw was for a 50 yard plus TD the other way. Mike Reilly looks like he could start for any team in the CFL. He needs a new hairstylist, though. Has an Al Qaeda beard & a Pee Wee Herman haircut. Notice how some players behaviour regress 20 years when a television camera focuses on them??

    I've been doing other stuff during and didn't even notice.

    I'm just glad they're televising the pre-season games.
