Edmonton Antlers helmetSNF 1—The Ants in Calgary
The home team punted and obligingly committed end zone DPI. The Ants charged from the 1 for a TD but couldn't manage +2. 6-0. Lots of work for the punters into Q2. The Stamps managed a FG. A TD for Arceneaux, 13-6. A quick one back for the Stamps, 13-10 at half time.
   In Q3, the Ants were sacked out of FG range, boot for a rouge, 14-10. After an exchange of FGs, the wheels came off. The Stamps went ahead with a TD and kicked a FG 7 minutes into Q4 for 17-23. Two more FGs from the Ants vs a charge for a TD by the Stamps, 23-30 final.

Sleepy JoemarkerCought it up and look cheerful
Creaky Joe is demanding zillions of dollars for a vaccine for the next pandemic, which will arrive sometime in the next 25 years, i.e. long after he's history.
   But there are several small to major problems, including he doesn't know what this next plague will be and when it will be and how severe it will be.
   But he still wants the money for his Project Fear.

bulletQ: Did Sirdreary ever have a grip on the Labour party to lose to the gang of his MPs who have been bought by the unions and have to stand on picket lines looking cheerful?
bulletA: That's just fake news, having a grip. He never had one on the Corbynsteiners.

Knee of GraceThe legal trade, currently demanding a pay rise of 25%, is Xpected to go into deep mourning over loss of income when the Justice Sec. bins corrupt new labour's 'uman bluddy rights fiasco and substitutes a Bill of Real Rights, which will make Parliament, not judges, the arbiter of what is and what isn't the law.

CFL logoLater, up the road in Vancouver, BC
The Lions zoomed to the red zone, TD for Burnham. Zoom by the Argos, stopped at the 1. Zoom again by the Lions, using a challenge, FG, 0-10. The Argos also won a challenge in Q2, on to a FG. Another TD for the Lions put them 3-17 ahead. They blew a challenge, lots of punting, then a long FG put the Lions 3-20 up at half time.
   Fumbles, punting, sacks in Q3. BC kicked a FG and scored a TD after 14 minutes for 3-30. A BC TD in Q4 made it 3-37. 3rd & goal @ the TA 1 inside the last 3 minutes. Charge! 3-44. That was enuff.

The UK might be ready for cleaner energy—a doubtful proposition that Shell would have us accept—but it will still get the fall-out from all the dirty energy generated abroad. You know, in the countries which, unlike ours, make a difference to the atmosphere.

President Trump's take on the January 6th Capitol Caper is that what's on offer as ‘evidence' to the investigating committee has no more accuracy than the NeatFlix ‘historicals' about the Britisch Royal Family.

Where does the EFU offshore its migrants? It pays Libya to hoover Africans out of the Mediterranean and lock them up in hell holes. It pays the Turks to do the same to prevent migrants from reaching Greece. And it has no problem with sending migrants to Niger & Rwanda.

Wobbly Jobbly
bulletQ: Why did Lord Geidt really quit as President Boris's essex guy?

   And Geidt didn't think we should have tariffs on artificially cheap Chinese steel, even though the EFU does it. So out he went, ego boiled for at least 20 minutes rather than 3½.

The Riders kicked off in Montreal and saw the ball returned for a TD by Worthy! Two FGs put the Als 0-13 up at the end of Q1, which they closed with a sack. In Q2, the Riders kicked a FG @ 3rd & 21. Bang! A 70 yard TD pass and 3-20 after 58 seconds. And it was 3-23 at half time.
   In Q3, the Riders reached & goal but were sacked to a FG. Their next drive went to a pick-6 from a tipped pass, 6-30. A penalty wiped out a 76 yard punt return to the end zone by the Als. A huge gain on the next play plus a penalty got them to & goal and they started Q4 with a FG, 6-33.
   The Als got a rouge from a punt and a FG from a pick. The Riders got close with 2 minutes left. A TD for Williams made the final score 13-37. Fajardo, the Riders' QB, got one hell of a lot of exercise from being chased!

   The Bombers went ahead with a rouge, the Cats got one from a missed punt but it was cancelled, so they picked off Mr. Collards and kicked a FG for 9-7. The Bombers scored a TD as the half ran out and added a rouge in Q3 for 9-15.
   The Bombers went further ahead with a FG and then a smash 'n' grab pick of a tipped pass in the 7th minute of Q4 put them 9-25 ahead. The Cats managed a FG after 10 minutes, the BB scored another single and 12-26 is how things finished.
