You can listen to the games for free on these websites.

Seven are the same URLs as last year. Calgary's is different, although it is the same radio station.

I love the week leading up to Opening Night (which is this Thursday) because of all the pre-season picks and analyses. I'll try to post as many of these as I can.

Here's a preview of the Roughriders. It says that the Riders have sold 22,000 season tickets. Mosaic Stadium only holds 28,500!

Toronto Argonauts 23....Winnipeg Blue Bombers 16

That means that Mark Trestman, John Hufnagel and Rich Stubler have all won their coaching debuts. That leaves it up to Sask's Ken Miller to see if he can complete the sweep.

Saskatchewan Roughriders 34....Edmonton Eskimos 13

Half the league has first time CFL head coaches. I don't recall anything like that before. And all four new coaches won their coaching debuts this week!

How long before Maciocia is shown the door?

Bob Ackles has died of a heart attack. I just heard him Friday night being interviewed during the halftime of the Riders radio broadcast of their game with the Lions.

I had the pleasure of having breakfast with him once in 1985. Very nice man.

I've been meaning to pick up a copy of his autobiography The Waterboy.

The Argos have put Michael Bishop on waivers! Last year he started 11 games for them and won ten. I suspect that he enjoys the loyalty of his teammates in the locker room. By doing so, the Argos can determine any interest in him. If another team claims him, they can recall him, and the negotiations will commence.
