Today was the first day Poncho had to bring me breakfast after losing last week’s CFL Showdown. I was expecting a granola bar (which I did get) but instead I got this:
Oatmeal, cranberries to put in the oatmeal, an apple, toast (with cheese to put on top) and a granola bar. Pretty good for day one I would say! I was quite impressed with Poncho’s breakfast. I’m pretty sure the Lawdy Mama helped him though…I’m okay with that…it was delicious!
Today was also the first day I had to wear an Eskimos jersey to work. I lost my bet with Ian after the Riders lost 17-14 to the Eskimos. Damn! Oh well, you win some you lose some right?

3 Ontario residents have been charged in what police allege was an internationally-linked terror ring–and one of them was on Canadian Idol back in 2008.
Check out his audition here:
Khuram Sher is one of the men accused of possessing plans and materials to create makeshift bombs. They are alleged to have discussed attacks on specific government buildings and city public transit systems.

THANK YOU RIDER FANS!!! Because of all the awesome Rock 105.3 listeners I won another CFL Showdown. Of course, we were collecting school supply donations for the Tools for Schools program into either a Rider bin or an Anti-Rider bin. Well, as it turned out the Rider fans kicked butt and as Bill from Southland Volkswagen put it “it wasn’t even close.” Now, Poncho has to buy me breakfast for a week! We’ll have another CFL Showdown bet next Thursday as the Riders gear up to face the Blue Bombers in the Labour Day Classic!

Okay– we’re doing a twist on this week’s CFL Showdown because the Riders are on their bye week. Here’s how it is going to work. We need YOU Rock 105.3 listeners to help Poncho and I out. Head on down to Southland Volkswagen (on 13th & Strachan) with some school supplies for the Tools for Schools Program. There will be two bins there—a RIDER bin and an ANTI-RIDER bin. Put your school supply donation in the corresponding bin to help either Poncho or I win this week’s bet!! Whoever has the most school supplies by the end of next Thursday (August 26th) wins the CFL Showdown! The loser has to buy the winner breakfast for a week–and the loser doesn’t get any breakfast to enjoy!

More detail are coming out about Bruce Springsteen’s upcoming documentary. Springsteen will be re-issuing his 1978 album Darkness on the Edge of Town this fall. Not only that, a documentary about the making of the album that will premier on HBO in October called “The Promise.” The documentary will have rare vintage studio footage, original studio recordings, and extensive new interviews with, among others, the Boss himself, Patti Smith (who co-wrote “Because the Night”), and members of the E Street Band, including the late organist Danny Federici. The film will air on HBO in October.

This week’s CFL Showdown between me and Poncho is an easy one. Whoever loses this week’s bet has to cook the other person a fancy dinner. The winner gets to pick what the dinner consists of and when it takes place. Sounds pretty simple huh? Well my Riders play tonight against B.C. and the Blue Bombers play Friday against Hamilton. I have a feeling Poncho will be cooking me something good next week!
Oh and just to update you guys on what happened last week…both the Bombers and the Riders lost, so neither Poncho or I had to follow through with our bets.
In the meantime, check out this cute pic of my friend’s dog Koda…..Yes he’s wearing Rider gear! I think I’ll have to get one just like it for my puppy Nala!
