Just over 8 minutes to go in the 4th and the Esks now have a commanding 36 - 24 lead over the Lions who can't seem to put any type of drive together that the Esks aren't ready to defend and do so well. Harris' offense has ruled the second half of this game but Lions were their own worst enemies with the number of penalties they took. In addition, their offense was all but absent from the field for the second half and the defense was porous. All in all, a really well played game by Edmonton.

Reilly's gonna get killed on this team. If I was him I'd genuinely fear for my life.

After being sacked 7 times last night, I'd say that you have a great point, Kreskin. Where is his protection? Mind you, I can remember thinking the same thing when he was with the Esks.

Did somebody put cat nip in the Argos" pants?

The TiCats are beating the shit out of them like toy mice.

55-6 with 7 torturous minutes remaining.

Worked today so I missed most of the game. Got home in time to see those final 7 torturous minutes you mentioned - funny that.

64 to 14 was the final score. And this on the day they said goodbye to Rickie Ray who they surely wish was healthy enough to take back the QB reigns.

Congratulations Rickie. You gave us CFL fans some of the best highlight reel moments in our league. All the best in the days and years to come. May we hope to see you on the sidelines coaching someday?

Well he always was one for the 'poker face', Pete. One of his characteristics I will always remember was his almost robotic form of QBing. Nothing seemed to faze him. Stalwart in the pocket or snowed under by the opposition, he always remained calm, cool and collected. Not for him were the over-the-top displays of temper such as we've seen from the likes of Boo Mitchell when thwarted in his attempts at a completion. I was ashamed for the small turn-out by Argo fans but it appears to mirror that of other team support these days. I hope to see Sask fans turns this dismal display of loyalty around when Mosaic is packed to the rafters for our first home game.

I really want to go to the Christmas game on July 6 but am busy all day and it's sold out and I'm not paying stub hub prices.

TSN 1, 2 and 3 now showing Eskimos vs Bombers.

Bombers lead 14 - 12 going into the second half. Esks would have more points on the board had they not committed so many very costly penalties including RTPs.

Bombers take it 28 - 21.

22-10 for the Lions over Stamps at the half.

So far, BC has gained all of their 22 points off Stump penalties. They currently lead Calgary by 21 points late in the first half. Mike is being given much better protection in this game - finally, and as a result has over a 90% completion rate in the game so far. BC's defense is playing havoc with the Stumps O and have one sack on Boo to date. He's also come very very close to throwing two interceptions due to the great coverage by the Lions.

Stumps put 10 on the board with just over 2 minutes left in the half to narrow BC's lead to 11 points.

Gotta give BC credit, they've looked really good in this first half. Both on defense and offense and their STs have contributed too.

With :51 seconds on the clock, the Lions enter the red zone with a 1rst D. :44 Duron gets them another 9 yards and the D on the next play. :17 TO for BC - 1rst and goal..........Mike misses his target in the end zone.......:11 and the Stumps stop them at the goal line. 3rd D and the Stumps come up with a big goal line stance and deny the Lions a TD.

End of 1rst half: BC 22 - Calgary 10

After watching the Lions in this game, I could become a believer. They really took the Stumps to task in this game. They had a good rushing game combined with a solid completion record from Mike and a defense that denied Calgary 1rst Ds, play after play. They rattled Boo every chance they got and their man-to-man coverage was solid as well. Regardless of the outcome, the Lions are a much improved team from that of last year's.

With just over 2 minutes left in the final Q, BC leads by 11 points. Calgary has the ball at the BC 40. And Boo is flattened - second sack of the game by BC!!!! Of course, Boo comes right back with a big completion to the BC 15. The Stumps manage to punch through on their 3rd attempt. And darn it if they aren't good on the 2- point convert to narrow BC's lead to 3 points with 1:20 on the clock.

Onside kick and the Stumps recover the ball around BC's 50. :31 and the Stumps take the lead after a converted TD - and with Boo on the bench after injuring his elbow or shoulder or something.



BC gets the ball back with :25 remaining. Incomp to Duron............:17 Mike gets sacked, loses control of the ball and the Stumps recover.


Final: Stumps 36 Lions 32

What a come back.

Mrs was "saying 0-3 in the bag" at 2:21 in the 4th. I said "no way I bet CGY can score a TD then short kick and score again. 2 minutes is ages". 61 seconds of play later I got hit by a pillow.

With a minute fifty-one left in the first half, my Riders are in the drivers seat leading 25 - zip. Cody picked right up where he left off last week throwing completion for completion including an absolute beauty of 94 yards. The game has been called due to a nasty weather system moving over the field. Length of delay is totally dependent on the weather. Oh, they are playing the TO Argos........so I am not over the moon but happily satisfied just the same.

I love the Prarie Thunderstorms.

Enjoy whatever they play instead during the blackout. I won't see it.

Word is that the delay could be as long as an hour. Skies are black and there are several lightning strikes. I imagine some fans will be well oiled by the time the game gets underway again. And the panel is hamming it up with a group of Sask fans.

Field is going to be a bit sloppy when play resumes - sheets of rain are pounding the turf.

Sweet it is, pete. We're gonna win our home opener. I am SO impressed with Cody - he's close to 400 passing yards in this game - and that, my dear is very impressive. Still scratching my head about some of McAdoos play calling but Cody seems to be able to overcome that and make something out of nothing. I saw some improvement in the defense this and those two interceptions were great reminders of last year. ST also looked better this week.
So with 7:42 left in the game and our Riders ahead 32 to 7, I'll congratulate our guys for a game well played and managed and, kudos to Dickenson.

Cody: 434 yards, 24 completions and 3 TDs - no interceptions. Were I Dickenson I'd keep Zach on the injured list for awhile.

Beautiful! We found our QB.

Bye Zach, it's been a slice. Nah, I take that back. It's been a whole loaf and you did your best.

Can't wait for Arsenault, Eliminiem and Labatt back in play.

Hughes will be the sack king this year.
