It wasn't just any normal game for Brett Favre. The much-hyped battle between Brett's old team and his new team went to the Vikings as Favre throws for 270 yards and three touchdowns in a 30-23 win over Green Bay. However, while Favre will get all the headlines because of the significance of the game, he was not the star. That honour goes to Minnesota d-lineman Jared Allen. He was simply unstoppable recording 4 1/2 sacks. The hype machine will now die down for a bit, but will rise again stronger than ever in a few weeks when Brett goes back to Lambeau in a game that will be talked about for a long time.
I have no idea what a-holes decided to go out and vandalize the Green Acres golf course, but here's hoping they get caught. If you haven't heard, some bottomfeeders with nothing better to do decided to go out Friday night and destroy some fairways and greens on the course. It will cost 25-thousand dollars. If and when they get caught, they can do their sentence by basically being a groundskeeper next summer with their pay being absolutely zip. Oh and they will get caught, because they will open their yap to someone to show how "cool" they think they were.
Has CFL commissioner Marc Cohon got some secrets hidden away in a closet. Did he do something when younger that he's not proud of. Take a look at this ad and tell me if it isn't Cohon shaving underwater(around the 43 second mark)....
That's Cohon I say. CTV's Chris Hodges and I may be the only people who believe this, but I say it is. If I am out walking today and a big van should pull up beside me with a CFL logo, I could be in big trouble.
There was a flyer in my Leader-Post Monday advertising Hallowe'en costumes, or should I say outfits to make you look rather whorish on October 31 if you are a lady. Did you see this flyer? Naughty nurse, naughty schoolteacher, naughty schoolgirl, naughty Ghostbuster?? Is this what Hallowe'en has come to? Then again, I guess all I would have to do is head to The Pump, JD's or The Drink on Hallowe'en night to answer that question. The only thing scary about some of these costumes is A) falling out of them or B) someone who shouldn't be wearing them wearing them if you know what I mean, and there will be many who will think they look good in a naughty nurse outfit or whatever and will be the only one who thinks they look good.
So let me get this straight, TSN does a story two games into the NHL season on a Leafs goaltending controversy. Someone pass me a bucket! Roberto Luongo is now 0-3 as Canucks goalie, but I'm sure TSN won't be making a Luongo story one of their top ones with talk that Andrew Raycroft could be taking over. Maybe the Devils are thinking about changing goalies seeing Marty Brodeur has started 0-2. Oh no, Canada's top two goalies for the Olympics haven't won yet. Sound the alarms!!! Please!
The Brandt Centre needs to be full when the World Juniors come to town. It will be embarassing for Regina to have a rink that is not full when the tournament begins.It will be a real slap in the face to Hockey Canada as well. The organizing committee said Monday only 27-hundred ticket packages have been sold so they are rolling out another ticket package for potential buyers. You can see all 12 games for 235 dollars or you can buy a six game package for 125 dollars. Each six game package includes one of the Canadian games that will be played here---one of the Canadian pre-tournament games. Will this be enough to get people to the rink or will single game tickets have to be put on sale? I guess we will find out starting Thursday when these new packages go for sale.
That is Marc Cohon. I'm telling you it is.
