It was an up and down weekend for this sports fan.
The biggest lowlight was Saturday’s Ticats-Stampeders game in Guelph.
What a disappointment that was.
Hamilton’s offence has struggled mightily in back to back games, and Henry Burris is having a real tough time right now.
With 2 monumental back-to-back series against Toronto and Montreal coming up, it’s time for the Cats to right the ship.
I got to take in the official opening of the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre in Brantford yesterday.
It was a packed house, inside and out, with the Great One taking the wraps off a 14 foot statue of himself raising the Stanley Cup.
The Blue Jays are thankfully finished… I don’t need to waste any more time on them.
The puck drops on the NHL season tomorrow night and teams are making their final roster moves.
It’s tough to see a guy like John Michael Liles placed on waivers.
I understand why the Leafs are doing it, but he’s been nothing short of amazing off the ice.
It is just too bad his play doesn’t coincide with his paycheck anymore.
