Something To "Mitch" About
The first Sunday of the CFL off-season has come and passed and the realization there is a lot of them coming until training camps in June have many already miserable. Here's something to think about that I brought up on the Sportscage Friday and something that while I don't think will ever happen, it does have some merit.
Would the CFL be better staging the Grey Cup on a Saturday afternoon. The parties are going full-bore Saturday night and they still would if you started the game at 4 o'clock as people would be out of the stadium by 730 giving them the chance to head to Riderville or somewhere to keep the party going.
While we all converged on the Green Mile in 2013, imagine what it could have been like partying all Saturday night and keeping that going into Sunday. As I said, I don't think the league is even considering that idea. but I think its something they should look at.
Former WWE wrestler CM Punk had social media buzzing when he came on during UFC181 and said he had signed a contract and would be fighting in UFC sometime in 2015. Many feel this is just a publicity stunt and Punk will get destroyed by whoever he steps into the octagon in. Those people obviously have some solid facts in their corner including the fact Punk has never had an MMA fight. However, I'm guessing Punk doesn't want to embarrass himself and has been and will be training hard to get ready for the fight against an unknown opponent. I don't think he will have a career like Brock Lesnar had, but I don't think he is going to get his lunch handed to him.
The Seattle Mariners are letting it known they want to be in the baseball playoffs again. I like the moves they are making and if they can add Melky Cabrera they will look very good.
Is it safe to say the guy with the most pressure on him in the Jays lineup is the player who will bat second. It will be his job to set the table for Donaldson, Bautista and Encarnacion while trying to be on base for those big three as well. Would the Jays put Russell Martin in that spot or do they put him 6th in the order
Its been said before, but defensive co-ordinators must go batty trying to contain Russell Wilson.
What has happened to the San Francisco 49ers?
I have no desire to get out there and do Christmas shopping,,,,none! That's not a good thing is it?
That's all I got. There's not a lot there today, but what can you do?
