Esks halftime show could be called a bust

Jeff Funnekotter, after the Edmonton Eskimos honoured last
weekend their cheerleaders from the past five decades, and they
performed at halftime: “The musical entertainment was provided by
the Tragically Hip Replacements.” . . . As I recall, the Eskimos
were the first CFL team to have NFL-styled cheerleaders. If not,
theirs always seemed to be the most mammerable . . . RJ Currie,
after the Edmonton Eskimos and Saskatchewan Roughriders played last
week before a record crowd of 62,517: “No wait; that was this year’s
Blue Jays attendance.” . . . Shovels are now banned, but I hear at
practices the Eskimos are allowing folding chairs . . . Three things
I’d like to see happen to Gary Bettman for ruining the National
Hockey League: 3. Have his office moved to Hamilton; 2. Be forced to
watch every Islanders game; 1. Live with Nancy Grace . . . Did I
just read David Letterman had affairs with Sarah Palin, Paul Shaffer
and Caster Semenya? . . . Janice Hough says many Americans just
don’t get the little nuances of hockey: “It was announced Rob Blake
will wear the ‘C’ as captain of the Sharks. Many San Jose fans
thought the ‘C’ stood for their grade in the playoffs.” . . . It is
illegal in Canada to use more than 25 pennies in a transaction,
according to Yahoo Travel. If this is true, how can CFL players cash
their cheques? . . . Paul McCallum was so upset with his demotion to
second-string kicker with the B.C. Lions, he had a load of manure
dumped on the driveway of Wally Buono’s next-door neighbour.
