It’s my Parting Shot for Weekend Short Shots, also known today as finishing off the beginning of this sentence…you know it’s Sports in September when…
…When you hear the phrase “Magic Number” in conjunction with the standings in Major League Baseball!
…When you need a program to keep up with who all is on the teams playing baseball in September, now that rosters have been expanded from 25 to as many as 40 players!
…When you need a program to figure out who’s who in a hockey pre-season game…no matter the league or level of play!
…When you hear C-F-L experts claim that the regular-season doesn’t, or didn’t, start until the Labour Day Weekend schedule has ended!
…When C-F-L haters in Canada proclaim that “real football” has started with the opening of the N-F-L season!
…When officials are getting bashed to “kingdom-come”…no matter the sport…for their incompetence!
…When the daily sports schedule I put out for Saskatoon Media Group radio stations and websites is nearly triple the amount of entries that it was in August!
…When my golf clubs and bike get stored in the garage for the winter, but the barbecue gets to stay out!
That’s my Parting Shot, I’m Les Lazaruk…
