It's been a while since there has been a post of any substance and truthfully it has been a slow June but things are beginning to heat up.
We'll start first with a few SaskGridiron.com notes:
- you'll notice on the website that the conferences have been updated for 2010. Yes, the SWAC will play with three teams. At this point we have schedules posted for all conferences except the SWAC who are still working theirs out. Hopefully we will have something posted soon.
Those teams are going to be sick of each other by the end of the season!
- I have begun work on the 2010 football season and there are a few things planned that you can get excited about. For the first time ever, individual player statistics will be tracked for 9-man football. This is very exciting. Right now I am working on nailing down statisticians in each community. Feel free to throw your name in the hat if you are interested. Send an e-mail to SaskGridiron@yahoo.ca.
- There is also some work being done on a fundraiser or two to help support 9-man football in the province. Look for something on that in the coming weeks as well.
We're less than a month away from the 2010 SasKota Bowl in Lumsden, SK. The game will be played at 1:00pm on Friday, July 16th. Ticket information will be posted in the days prior to the event but lemme tell you it won't be expensive and it's great entertainmnet. These kids play some good football and I suggest, if you're in the area, to go and check it out.
Great move by the Montreal Canadiens today. The Habs traded goaltender Halak to the St. Louis Blues for prospectes Lars Eller and Ian Schultz.
Here is why it's a great deal:
1. Halak's value will never be higher than it is right now while Cary Price will continue to grow.
2. Lars Eller is a player.
I'm super excited for the NHL entry draft. My Leafs will be movin and shakin.
How much cheaper would it be to buy a wakeboard and just ride that to work everyday? I think there is enough water to make it work.
I feel sorry for the farmers. There isn't much you can do when it's like this. The forecast on my Blackberry Storm said "Tons of rain". No joke.
If we do happen to get some sunshine in July and August the football fields should be in FANTASTIC shape come September.
Mike Weir is -1 after the opening round at the US Open. He was -3 but boggied the final two holes. At the time he did have a piece of first place. Let's hope that he does well.
I don't know about you but I'll be pulling for Tiger when he tees off. I'd like to see him crush the field by 6 or 7 strokes.
The forecast is calling for sunshine on Sunday so you should be able to get a round of golf in with dad. Remember this is Thursday though and the forecast changes about once every 2 hours.
