Chancellor SnackbulletQ: Why does the Chancellor, Mr. Snack, wear a face mask? Is he showing solidarity with the former holder of his job and now Health Sec., Vajid Javid?
bulletA: In fact, it's in the hope that everyone will forget what he looks like so that he will be able to make good his escape when he has to do a runner after splurging all of the country's cash, plus whatever he was able to borrow, as part of his bid to rival Gordon F. Broon as the worst Chancer of the Exchequer of all time.

CFL logoSNF #2, the Riders in Montreal
The Als made a 3rd & 1 in their own half on the way to a FG half-way through Q1, 0-3. They set up for a FG after a double sack on Shiltz in their next drive, procedure, punt instead. Q2 started with the 3rd sack on Fajardo! The Als were sacked out of FG range after a couple of punts. Purifoy returned a pick to midfield, the Riders advanced to FG range, Powell in for a TD from the 3, 7-3 at half time.
   Defences continued to rule in Q3. The Riders kicked a FG after 9 minutes, 10-3. The Als failed to make 3rd & 1 and put the Riders @ their 29. 2 & FG, 13-3. T. Harris, moved from Edmonton, took over from Shiltz in Q4. He nearly made an end zone TD pass, FG instead, 13-6. Same story at the other end, 16-6.
   The Riders inflicted a sack when the Alouettes went for a 3rd & 2; nothing from it. Harris rushed to the red zone, TD for Lewis, 16-14 with 1:26 left. A short kick off was fielded by Williams, the Riders were sacked to a FG, 19-14 with 52 seconds left. Another SK sack, the Als went out on downs and the Roughriders are now in the playoffs.

BorisNothing hurts like the truth
President Boris is right when he says plastic can be recycled only a limited number of times. The polymer chains degrade with each heat heating & reforming cycle and the recycled bulk needs to be topped up with virgin plastic to provide the required properties.

BC were stopped early by a pick, FG from it, 0-3. The Argos made 3rd & 2 in their next drive to a TD, 0-10. The Lions replied with a TD after 14 minutes, Michael to Burnham, 7-10. Buckets of fouls by the other lot kept the Lions going to a TD for Rhymes in Q2, Halloween zombie act, 14-10.
   BC did some fouling then sacked the Argos to a FG, 14-13. A long FG for the Argos made it 14-16 @ half time. An Argo punt produced a rouge in Q3.

bulletQ: What do you get if you send malicious messages to Labour's scumbucket monitor A. Rayner?
bulletA: A suspended sentence (but not from a lamp post) rather than the thanks of a grateful nation.

It's cheaper for water companies to dump raw sewage in rivers than to process it to make it harmless?

bulletA: Scary Carrie told him?
[The actual official guesstimate is 100 seconds from midnight. But it's probably no closer to reality than Boris' version. Ed.]

bulletQ: How serious is the Daily Mail about Climate Doom?
bulletA: On Monday, the front page started with Boris doing a doomy message, which was continued on page 4, so not very, especially as page 2 was an advert and page 3 was all about P. McCartney's Halloween bash.

bulletQ: If Boris was saying "get serious today because it will be too late tomorrow" on Monday and it's Wednesday now, does that mean we're either saved or doomed and we can all relax either way?

CFL logoSaturday Nite #2 way out West
The Alouettes started in Winnipeg with Trevor Harris (ex-Antlers) @ QB. A high snap when they had to punt and a shambles put the Blue Bombers @ their 33 and on the way to a TD in the 7th minute. A BB fumble at the start of their next drive handed the Als a pick-6 and 7-all.
   The Bombers went ahead with a FG in Q2, and missed a FG try for a rouge, 7-11. The Als replied with a TD with 3 minutes to go. The Bombers kicked a FG in the last minute, 14-all at the half. A TD in the 3rd minute of Q3 put the Als 21-14 ahead.
   The Bombers got level again after 10 minutes and went ahead with a TD in the first minute of Q4. 21-28. A pick by the BB gave them a FG and a 21-31 lead. And when the Bombers, who own Q4 this season, made another interception, that settled the Als' hash.

Call that snow? Nothing compared to what we had in Romiley yesterday. The TiCats stared & punted. Their 30 yards of penalties helped the Als to a FG. Then the defences took over. The Als lost the ball to a sack/fumble in Q2 and the Cats scored a TD after 9 minutes, 3-7. The Als were 2 & gone, another TD for the Cats, 3-14. Harris was mugged again and the Cats got a FG from it, and they kicked another to close the half at 3-20 after making an interception.
   After an exchange of punts in Q3, the Als made 3rd & 3 to the TC 28 and Harris fired a TD pass on the next play, 10-20. Lots of sacking & punting into Q4. The Als challenged but didn't get a clear case of DPI. The Cats challenged a fumble of a punt return, got no yards in their favour and went on to a FG, 10-23 with 3 minutes left.
   The match was effectively over then. The Als went out on downs @ the TC 9 with 1:38 left. The Cat ate clock by running around in their end zone to concede a safety instead of punting, 12-23. Then they inflicted a 3rd down sack on the Als. The end.
