0 and 4...


mystery national park pic #2. bonus clue: "rising sun".

ok, i'm 0-4 with my cfl playoff predictions. it just shows you how much i know about football. but you must admit that this last weekend's games were upsets.

i thought T.O. had the necessary weaponry to dismantle the alouettes; however, they killed themselves with turnovers (not the apple kind either). it brought back flashbacks of the stampeders game. ouch...

then there were the BC lions... it was a close game due to incompetent quarterbacks on both sides. for edmonton, that ricky ray guy has the weakest arm of all the starting quarterbacks in the league. dave dickenson, BC's starting quarterback is not far back in this category, eh.

the difference between the two? ray has a grey cup ring. dave doesn't. he's a good quarterback but until he wins a grey cup championship he'll be remembered for just being the most efficient signal caller in league history. (aside: as for next year, i suggest to wally buono, coach/general manager of the lions, that backup qb printers is a keeper.)

this same grey cup criterion for immortality applies to henry burris as well.

final prognostication...

this prognostication business is like trying to win the 6/49.

edmonton 21 montreal 18. the eskimos will use their 4th string quarterback in the last 30 seconds to bring the cup home...

i hate the eskimos. so, it's difficult to predict their success. i hate montreal just as much.

i'm not sure if i'll be watching this sunday.

other news...

what the hell is going on with ralph klein these days? he's traipsing around eastern canada giving away more money... ok, some of it goes towards a national scholarship program... next thing you know he'll be cutting 400 dullah cheques for the newfies, eh. i just hope he keeps mentioning his plans for health care reform in this province on this trip. hehehehe...



seldom do we associate ralphie with the word "art" but he personally chose, on behalf of us albertans, the above piece called "Song of my Dream Bed Dance" by artist Joane Cardinal-Schubert to donate to the National Gallery. no offense to ms. cardinal-schubert but thanx ralphie... you can put our wallet back in your pocket.



like in iraq, dubya didn't have a exit strategy for a press conference in china either.

What about Waterton Lakes?

that island looks too far in to be the one with the Picnic table visble from the highway, just west of that huge industrial plant. regardless, I'll go with Banff - since it's the obvious choice, easy to get to and sounds funny when 'mericans try to say it.

Glacier?

excuse the language...

F*c*ing Hell that's gorgeous!

Wherever it is, can you take me there sometime?

bubba said...

len, can you be more specific?

dean, are you being sarcastic?

Len said...

Glacier National Park?

dean said...

Sarcastic? Not at all, I think that its a wonderful picture, absolutley beautiful. I'm not kidding.

I guess being cooped up in a classroom with a bunch of 18yr olds and an office with no window can get to me sometimes.

I want a vacation!

bubba said...

take it easy on the kids, eh. they're the future. not like us old farts, eh...

Beautiful pictures...

I think you're the only person on earth who's picking the Eskies...

bubba said...

kyle, it pains me to chose them as the grey cup winners. on the other hand, if everything works out like the last 5 playoff predictions, the alouettes could easily prove me wrong...
