When the Hamilton Tiger-Cats defeated Montreal on the weekend to secure first place
#1
When the Hamilton Tiger-Cats defeated Montreal on the weekend to secure first place in the CFL’s East Division, it brought the curtain down on one of the quietest Toronto Argonauts seasons ever. Air Force 1 Clearance . It ended in a manner similar to how this Toronto season existed all season, with little fanfare, being snuffed out on a day they weren’t even playing. That’s what happens when you go into the final weekend of the season without controlling your destiny. But controlling destiny is in fact a very important issue as the Argos head into an uncertain off-season. Right now the team is owned by David Braley, who wants to sell it and has for a while. It’s football staff is frustrated, its players demoralized by a difficult season in which they spent the first half of the year without a regular practice facility, and its front office has vacancies that are tough to fill when everyone knows the team is for sale. And then there’s the fact that the Argos only have three seasons left at the Rogers Centre, which would be a good thing if they had a guarantee of somewhere else to play. But they don’t. Which is why this off-season is so critical as talks continue to strike a deal that would see the Argos play at BMO Field, home of Toronto FC, which is owned and managed by Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. Securing a lease at BMO Field would perhaps inspire someone to buy the franchise from Braley and give it the love, attention and cash flow it so dearly needs. The Argos will never matter in this town as they once did, but a decent live experience would be a big step towards a little more relevance. And it would also give this franchise a story to tell, a nice little narrative about moving back to the teams roots near the site of old Exhibition Stadium on the Lakeshore. In my lifetime, the Argonauts have never been more off-the-radar of the Toronto sports scene than they are today, less than two years removed from winning the 100th Grey Cup before an adoring crowd at the Rogers Centre. And the scary thing is that we are at a stage where many people in Canadas biggest city have no memory or connection to when the Argos used to really matter. The NFL threat, it turns out, was the least of the Argos worries. But it’s hard to sell a vision of a bright future when no one is sure what that future will be. Or can say with certainty if there will be one at all. Air Force 1 Discount .ca. Hi Kerry, Thursday nights Bruins-Blackhawks game had a goal by Patrice Bergeron initially waved off by the referee, but video review clarified it was a good goal. Air Force 1 Outlet . Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee? Green had bounced around the NBA when he wasnt playing overseas. The Pacers gave up on Plumlee after just one season.

Bester grabbed an early lead before Scotlands Darren Burnett took over and ran away with the mens singles lawn bowling final 21-9 on Friday.ABBOTSFORD, B.C. -- Scoring in his return to Abbotsford was nice for Guillaume Desbiens, but playing on a line with Joey Hishon was the real treat. Desbiens scored an insurance goal and assisted on the games winner as the Lake Erie Monsters defeated the Abbotsford Heat 3-1 in American Hockey League action Saturday. "Its always fun coming back," said the 28-year-old veteran who played the 2011-12 season for the Calgary Flames affiliate. "I loved my time out here. I have nothing but good things to say about Abbotsford. Obviously theres not that many guys left from my time here but there are still a few familiar faces and any time you get a goal against your old team its fun to put it in their face a little bit." Desbiens linemate Hishon scored the game winner, giving Hishon goals in back-to-back games and three points in his first three games since returning from a pre-season groin injury. He also missed time in the past with concussion issues. "Ive been off for extended periods of time multiple times so to be back playing again is very exciting," said Hishon. "Last night, to score in a loss, isnt really what you want, but tonight it was huge for us." Hishon, the Colorado Avalanches 2010 first-round draft choice, brings offensive flair to the AHL affiliate that was missing earlier this year. "Its easy to play with him," said Desbiens. "He puts the puck on your tape and hes always in a good position. It makes it a lot easier when you play with him. He hasnt played a whole lot in the last couple years so its impressive to see what he can do even though he hasnt had a whole lot of playing time. Its nice to have him back because he has a skill set that nobody on our team has." Hishons goal came just 68 seconds after Michael Sgarbossa tied the game for Lake Erie (4-4-0). Mark Olver had assists on all three goals, including starting tthe play on winner. Air Force 1 Store. "My linemates made an unbelievable play there," said Hishon. "Olver made a one-touch pass to Desbiens and he made a one-touch pass to me. It was a real nice tic-tac-toe goal. I didnt really do anything -- I just drove to the net and it hit my stick and went in." Monsters goaltender Calvin Pickard made 23 saves in the win. Corban Knight scored for Abbotsford (4-4-1). Reto Berra stopped 24 shots in the loss. Knight opened the scoring midway through the first. Ben Streets point shot was stopped, but Knight banked home the rebound from a sharp angle. "Streeter got a shot on net, and it was kind of a loose puck there and the goalie was kind of cheating off his post," said Knight. "I thought Id try to bank it off him, and it was kind of lucky it worked out." However, Sgarbossa tied the game when he one-timed a cross-ice feed from Andrew Agozzino from the top of the right face-off circle while on the power play. Hishon then put the Monsters ahead at 4:56 of the second. Desbiens gave the Monsters a two-goal cushion at 4:55 of the third when he was sent in on a breakaway by Mikael Tam. "Last night started great but in the second it just wasnt there and we had some brain farts," said Desbiens of Fridays 4-2 loss to the Heat. "Tonight the second period was OK, it wasnt great but was better, but came really strong in the third. When you have a lead thats what you have to do -- stay on your toes and attack." Abbotsford didnt have the jump they had Friday night, failing to produce any sustained pressure and minimal scoring chances. "We have a ton of skill in that dressing room, but skills nothing if youre never in the offensive zone," said Abbotsford alternate captain Carter Bancks. "Tonight we werent able to stay over pucks as well, we werent able to get cycles going." ' ' '
