Good morning and welcome back!
We'll talk some football today and a little hockey so let's get to it.
The Kindersley Klippers have made a move. The SJHL is reporting that the team has acquired former WHL'er Sanfred King from the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the BCHL.
The 6'2 185lb RW played 98 games over two seasons with the Brandon Wheat Kings in the WHL. The 1990 born King picked up 14 points in that time.
This was taken from the BCHL website: The Cowichan Valley Capitals Hockey Club transfers the playing rights of Sanford King to the Kindersly Klippers of the SJHL in exchange for future considerations.
He scored 8 points (3g 5a) in 19 games 19 games with the Capitals and picked up 6 penalty minutes.
The 9-man football provincial championship is set for tomorrow between Lumsden and Swan Valley.
Here's the scoop on the broadcast: if we can get a live internet feed out on the field we will be broadcasting live on SaskGridiron.com. If we can't, then it will be available 'tape delayed' online a few hours after the game is over.
At the moment, it looks as though we will be able to go ahead and broadcast live so keep your fingers crossed. If we go live the pre-game show will start at 12 noon with the opening kick-off at 1pm.
The latest poll question on SaskGridiron.com asks when you think the winning points will be scored tomorrow. Interestingly enough it's pretty even across the board.
Do you really feel the winning points will be scored in the first half? I'd say they'll come in the fourth quarter. That's just my opinion though.
The Kindersley Klippers look for their second straight win tonight when they host the Nipawin Hawks. The Jr. K's beat Melville earlier this week to snap a mini 2 game slide. The Klippers seem to have the Mils number this year.
I'll try to post some game notes later on today.
The Provincial Championship may be played on one of the colder days in recent memory.
The forecast for Lumsden is calling for plenty of sunshine but -10 degrees for the morning and a high of +3 for the afternoon. +3 wouldn't be so bad but the next 5 days are going to be around +10.
The big news is that no precipitation is expected.
So I figured I'd use my new PVR to record the Leafs/Wild game last week on Sportsnet Ontario. I set the timer correct and when I got home I found out that I recorded two hours of:
The program you are trying to view has been blacked out in your area. Sportsnet Ontario does not have the rights to broadcast this game in your area.
I've watched Leafs games on SN Ont already this season but the one I try to record is blacked out?
Some good news now: Kevin Costner is coming to Craven.
Word is there are about 6,000 weekend passes still out there at about $180 a pop. I'll be there. It's only been about a month or two that I've been listening to some of Costner's tunes. If you get a chance look some up. I recommend the track titled 'Superman'.
Listening to the radio this morning and it was announced that starting in January it will be illegal to use a cell phone while driving. FINALLY!
The ticket will be more than $300 and it will also take 4 points off your license. Hit the nail on the head. Great job!
Ok that's all I have for now... enjoy the day!
