It’s my Parting Shot for my Monday Musings…..
We shouldn’t be surprised that Johnny Manziel is now a member of the Montreal Alouettes. For much of the lead-up to training camp this year, there was speculation that the Tiger-Cats would deal Johnny Football to Montreal…even if Drew Willy was healthy! The Alouettes are exactly who everybody thought they would be through the first five games of the season and Hamilton has Jeremiah Masoli firmly entrenched at the pivot…so much so that Manziel couldn’t get a rep when the regular campaign started. It will be curious to see how quickly Manziel can pick up the Als’ offence and how quickly Mike Sherman wants to get him into game action!
Luckily for the Toronto Blue Jays, the Baltimore Orioles are not just bad this season…they are in the Jays’ division, meaning they meet each other 19 times! Toronto have won seven straight and nine of 10 from Baltimore who are 28-and-72 for the year! Not only are the Orioles doomed to lose at least 100 games, the question is might they be more futile than the 1962 Mets and 120 losses in 160 games?!
Thanks to Craig Prentice for allowing four of us “hackers” from the Saskatoon Media Group to play the Lakes and Bridges nines at the Willows on Saturday! Thankfully, I can blame the wind tunnel conditions for my inflated score! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!!
That’s my Parting Shot, I’m Les Lazaruk...
