The Saskatchewan Roughriders are "this" close to clinching a C-F-L playoff spot for the first time since 2014. A Green and White win over Ottawa Friday AND a B-C loss in Winnipeg Saturday would guarantee the Riders no worse than a fourth place finish in the West Division and a cross-over playoff spot into the Eastern semi-final. And, I'm with Milt Stegall and Matt Dunigan from the T-S-N panel...Saskatchewan should not try and jockey their way into fourth for a, supposedly, easier Eastern semi-final game!
You know you are in Canada when talk comes around to baseball and the casual fan is happy when Boston and/or the Yankees lose...meaning they are fans of the Toronto Blue Jays!
And, call me old school...but I like a ball player like Evan Gattis of the Houston Astros. A big guy who doesn't wear batting gloves and the bat looks like a tooth pick in his massive hands. He's a versatile-type designated hitter-slash-first baseman-catcher who usually hits a home run or strikes out...but runs everything out hard when he has to! Give me more of those guys!
