Big day ahead on the water and on the diamond...and the playoff beard in August

It's going to be a big day on the water for Canada when the Olympics resume in a few hours.

Canadian kayaker Adam van Koeverden is looking to defend his gold medal in the 500 metres. Van Koeverden will be trying to rebound from a shocking eighth-place finish in yesterday's one-thousand metre race.


Also in just a short time the North Sask River Baseball League champion will be crowned.

The Wilkie Brewers are hosting the Lloyd Twins in the deciding game of the series. Here are a few points about this series and these two teams:

- Wilkie has won championship last three seasons.
- Lloyd won the championship the three seasons prior.
- The Breweres and Twins have met in the final the last six seasons.
- No other team in the league has won the league title since 1999.

Should be a great game tonight!


Three Western Hockey League teams have submitted proposals tohost the 2010 Memorial Cup.

The Brandon Wheat Kings, KelownaRockets and Everett Silvertips are each are vying for thetournament. Bid presentations will be held in October during theW-H-L Board of Governors meeting in Calgary.

Maybe it had something to do with the new playoff beard. MikeWeir made a big move at The Barclays with a second-round 67 thatleft him seven shots back of Steve Stricker. This week's tournamentmarks the start of the P-G-A Tour playoffs and the Canadian says hegrew a beard to follow in the tradition of N-H-L players.
