    An FYI for Elks fans on the island, lower mainland and other parts of BC who might be planning on an Elks game in Vancouver. I just received an email from the club. Single game tickets will go on sale April 30th.

I tried accessing the link to where I could by more as a ST holder mostly out of curiosity to see what was left but it wasn't working property. I'm up in the air as far as attending. It's looking bleak for picking up the usual contract work I get thru the summer. I might take advantage of that and the fact BC has only 2 home games (including TD Pacific) between July 13 and Sept 13 and head out on a bucket list cross Canada road trip. I reckon I'd be somewhere between Montreal and Toronto on the way home about the time of TD Pacific.
    Yeah, I opted for the visitor side. I am top row of the old grandstand, right if front of the broadcast booth. I wasn't sure what type of seating they were going to offer in the temp bleachers on the Lions side (bucket seats? metal benches?), so I stuck with what I knew. And although it will probably be a typically beautiful late August day in Victoria, it's nice to have covered seats just in case.

    It looks like there are only single seats left available between the goal lines.

The GM and.AGM absolutely have to be on the same page heading into free agency. They have to be in agreement on who their priority targets are and what they are willing to pay for them. Maybe GS pushed for a high profile receiver but CJ had to set the budget for it.

    I mean I wonder about that. I don't recall CJ spending a large percentage of the cap on any big time receiver in Sask the last time he was a GM and Simon was not a part of his management team. But perhaps I'm wrong about that and someone can correct me. The last 2 years the EE have basically unloaded the brinks truck for first Lawler and now Lewis. I don't see CJ (and apparently the rest of the CFL's individual team management personnel groups...just ask Tim White) overvaluing the position over a former receiver like Simon. But of course that's just conjecture on my part.

    I just read that Bombers DE, Craig Roh, passed away from cancer at age 33.

    My condolences to his family, 33 is far too young to die. RIP Craig.
