Alfred Thompson mentioned earlier today via Twitter that he was interested in seeing medal counts per population for the countries involved.  Realising that this kind of math was right up my alley, I decided to make such a table for ... Read More »

Riders – No Idea

The Riders won huge yesterday in a great performance against Edmonton.  But I have no idea what to expect going forward.  The defense was tremendous, outscoring Edmonton on their own.  But they seem to always play well against Edmonton at ... Read More »

That could have been embarrassing…

How bad would it have been for the Riders to lose to the Ti-Cats on a field goal in the closing seconds of the game?  Okay, so it’s not the Grey Cup, but the game should not have been close ... Read More »

So the Rider organisation has apparently won their bet on Bishop.  Wow!  He tosses 30-yard passes like other QBs toss 10 yards.  The game was a great watch, with a come-from-behind rally of 20 points in the last quarter.  John ... Read More »

The Riders won again today, beating BC 26-16 on the road.  It was a nice win, especially since it looked like they should have been way down at halftime.  In my strengths last week, somehow I neglected the secondary.  It ... Read More »

It was a good start for the Riders on Friday against Edmonton.  They weren’t great, but were solid.  They certainly closed the show in the fourth quarter, going from 16-13 to 34-13.  The good was the receivers, run defense, and ... Read More »

Just watched the Giants take out the Patriots 17-14… didn’t see that coming.  Eli Manning’s sack breakaway and hail Mary late in the 4th quarter was amazing…  Now I have to go find somewhere that’s hosting the ads to see ... Read More »

Grey Cup Reflections

A great win yesterday.  The Riders didn’t play their best game today, it was closer than it should have been.  But in a championship game a win is a win.  The Riders defense carried the day.  Johnson had a tremendous ... Read More »

Yeah, green & white!

Woot!  3rd cup in Rider history!  A more exciting game than I expected – Riders didn’t have it together in the 1st half but salvaged the win through points on turnovers.  Yeah! Read More »

The Riders seem to have righted the ship after the disastrous September.  Granted, the last three games have been against weak teams, but at least they are winning again.  Clinching second this weekend was nice, that is the first time ... Read More »
