It's my Parting Shot for my reactions to the headlines in today's Star-Phoenix Sports Section...
First headline...Glenn and Bridge content with quarterback system, Jones says Glenn to start, but Riders will continue to play both pivots as needed. My reaction...once again, Rider Nation has proven that the most popular man on the Green and White...if not in the entire province...is the back-up quarterback. Brandon Bridge has played competently enough where Roughrider fans either want the Canadian to be the starter...or, at the very least, be in the next series after the first two-and-out for the veteran Glenn in a game. I'm not as sold on Brandon Bridge as the Saskatchewan faithful are...mostly because I'm not expecting a Grey Cup win this year. In fact, making the playoffs is going to be as good as it gets for the Riders...paving the way for James Franklin to be the new pivot next year!
Next headline...Nobody is picking on the kicking anymore. Reaction...of course not. Tyler Crapigna (pictured) has been near perfect since two untimely misses in the first two games...meaning knee-jerk reactions from Rider Nation aren't necessary!
Last headline...Can Cleveland overcome history and get job done?, Indians have lost five consecutive potential series-clinching contests. My reaction...of course they can! History doesn't always dictate potential results. In fact, it rarely does...look how the Calgary Flames finally broke their long losing streak in Anaheim over the weekend! Besides, I picked Cleveland to win the World Series, so of course they're going to win Game 5 of their A-L-D-S tonight!
