Only In The CFL!!!!

Honestly at the start of the day we just assumed that the "Mike Bishop on waivers" story would be the oddest CFL story of the day.  So imagine our surprise when Rod Black and  Duane Forde were joined by Don King in the booth during the Als-Stamps game.  Don freakin' King. To steal one of A-Rad's lines here, it seems like King would show up to the opening of a wound. So many things come to mind here:

  • How the hell do Wetenhall and the splendiforous, whimsical, wonderflous wizard of pugilistic promotality krow each other?
  • Was King there only to ensure that the quota of having someone who has committed a Class 1 felony involved in the game was filled? (The Als really miss Lawrence Phillips)
  • What would Rod Black and King talk about off camera? 
  • And what is going through the Pope's mind here?

On an unrelated note, have you noticed that CityNews.ca has almost zero coverage of the Argos now? Hmmm...CityNews now owned by Rogers. Rogers wants NFL team. CityNews.ca stops covering Argos. Coincidence???

Just sayin'...

Haven't watched City in awhile (although there is no channel that does crappy movies better), so I checked out the CP24 sports website and you're right. Nary an Argo reference to be found. There was, however, an old story about Todd Bertuzzi going to Calgary.

To be fair though, Sportsnet does a fair job of covering the CFL given that it doesn't have any stake in the league.

Maybe SN is trying to make up for the loss of Duane Forde?

Personally, I'm still trying to figure out how/why Danny Mac wound up on the outside looking in at TSN. I thought he did a great job last year.

Agreed on Danny Mac, but really it makes sense to see him roaming the Ti-Cats sideline.
