It's my Parting Shot for my reactions to the headlines in today's Star-Phoenix Sports Section...
First headline...McDaniel backs out on Colts. My reaction...It made no sense to me that both young co-ordinators with the Patriots would leave New England, what with head coach Bill Belichik close to retiring at age 67 and having said, in the past, that he didn't understand why anyone would be involved at age 70 and beyond. Aside from upset Indianapolis fans...no harm, no foul!
Next headline...Raptors crush Celtics to close in on first place, Toronto holds visitors to just 37 points in first half. Reaction...It'd worth watching the N-B-A and the Raps play as they are among the elite in pro basketball...one of just a few real contenders for a championship!
Last headline...Former N-F-Ler Walsh named Roughriders' Q-B coach. My reaction...if there was any doubt in Rider Nation as to how well connected Saskatchewan G-M and head coach Chris Jones is, this hiring proves it! No-one saw this big of an American football name being lured to the Green and White and the C-F-L to be a quarterbacks coach! Let's hope Steve Walsh is a hit with Zach Collaros and Brandon Bridge!
