We'll see if McLeod Bethel-Thompson can get up for the Grey Cup, he's surprised me over the past couple of years. Especially since he was benched, but seems to have made a big turnaround.
thats Vikings legend McLeod Bethel-Thompson thank you very much

What a crazy game, tons of running the ball, Bethel-Thompson appears to get a hand injury and then Chad Kelly stepped in and led the Argos to the go ahead TD. Great defense by Toronto, too.

Just got home from work.

After the game I went and dug up like 10 posts I made on the Bombers forum throughout the season saying the Bombers needed to trade for a kicker at the trade deadline like they did last year. Everyone kept telling me I was nuts and we needed to let this guy "develop" but it's fucking stupid to bet a threepeat on a god damn head case kicker. Dude has missed 1 or more kicks in 13 out of 23 games in which he's attempted a kick. The guy they brought in at the deadline last year was perfect in the Grey Cup and it's the reason they won it.

This one hurt.

"Cale Makar made NHL history and reacted with a shrug.

The generational Avalanche defenseman penned another incredible chapter of his meteoric hockey rise in Monday night’s 3-2 shootout victory at the Dallas Stars. Makar opened the game with a power-play goal to become the fastest blueliner in league history to amass 200 career points. It took him only 195 games."

Injury bug has ravaged the Avs this year.

Their normal gameday 20, with an x next to everyone hurt
Landeskog (x) - MacKinnon - Nichushkin (x)
Lehkonen - Rodrigues (x) - Rantanen
Newhook - Compher - O'Connor
MacDermid (x) - Helm (x) - Cogliano

Toews - Makar
Byram (x) - Manson
Girard - Johnson

Georgiev
Francouz

Girard came back last game and they immediately lost Rodrigues for 2-4 weeks.

MacDermid is also the 7th defenseman so they're down to #8 there and were down to #9 when Girard was out.

Still plenty of the season left to get things together. The Devils are a huge surprise to me this year, makes me wish Sabres rehired Lindy Ruff when they had the chance.

MacKinnon out four weeks, Lehkonen day to day, but right now the only top 6 skater left is Mikko Rantanen. Manson now down too, leaving us down a whole defensive pairing.

I finally noticed NLL season started up on ESPN+. I'll have to catch more Saskatchewan and Buffalo games.
