It's my Parting Shot for my reactions to the headlines in today's Star-Phoenix Sports Section...
First headline...Riders downplay teammates' punch-up. My reaction...Of course they did. And, as Chris Jones said, fights among teammates happen a lot in sports...not just football. These same incidents happen in hockey...and when it happens with the Montreal Canadiens, for instance, it's a big deal to the media...but diffused by the team. Nothing is different about this...except that it involved Duron Cartert...the C-F-L's version of Sean Avery!
Next headline...Saskatoon Blades take a step in the right direction. Reaction...yes, most assuredly they did by winning twice in four road games. But, the Bridge City Bunch need to win at home in order to turn the attitudes of a decreasing fan base. And, that has to start tonight against Vancouver!
Last headline...The Yankees are seeing doubles after big eighth, Judge and Sanchez hammer the Astros to knot up the A-L-C-S. My reaction...Houston needs a bigger lead, obviously...or a better bullpen...if they are to get past baseball's version of "The Evil Empire!"
