The man who least looks like, or acts like, a millionaire is someone I would like to see have his investment pay off in at least a playoff spot. Of course, I’m talking about Saskatoon Blades’ owner Mike Priestner. I know he owns suits and ties…he’d prefer not to wear them. And, he doesn’t throw around money references in a haphazard manner in casual conversation. Mike Priestner wants the Bridge City Bunch to win and have on and off-ice success. He’s been very good to me, so I’d like to see him get what he wants!
My Minnesota Vikings own the top seed in the N-F-C. They’ve won eight straight games…and have used three different quarterbacks. Amazing! Even more amazing…the latest pivot to pilot the Vikes is Kase Keenum. He has been, surprisingly, very good! However, the fatalist in me is waiting for his bubble to burst…at the absolute wrong time, of course!
Why even bother having “Conference Championship” games when a team that didn’t even play in one…because they lost at the wrong time…still manages to make the N-C-A-A’s Final Four football playoffs? Alabama may be a good team, that played a tough schedule. But, they didn’t play in the South-East Conference title game. Does Nick Saban have pictures of committee members in compromising situations? That shouldn’t happen!
I understand the “Roar of the Rings”, Canadian Olympic Curling Trials, got underway Saturday in Ottawa. I’m interested but, alas, there is no coverage of Canadian curling in the States on E-S-P-N! ~Sigh~
That's my Parting Shot. I’m Les Lazaruk in Portland…
