Finally, Dreamboat’s UnderArmor sponsored promotional tour of Asia continues apace with a stop in Japan & visit to the Sakaigawa sumo stable in Tokyo. For posterity and/or his son’s future embarrassment, many pictures were taken.
Only one thing was missing from that visit, and…BAH GAWD KING, IS THAT YOKOZUNA’S MUSIC?!
Don’t forget, CFL season starts tonight. Maestro has you covered with the best analysis outside Regina, and ESPN has you covered with a story on former NFLers or college stars in the CFL looking to get their Flutie, Moon or Wake on.
Speaking of working hard, my buddy Matt is the BC Lions digital media rep, and so has all the good stories. He decided to revisit the Las Vegas CFL experience as a way to tie into the NHL expansion draft. He included all the good stuff, including the worst national anthem not sung by Carl Lewis. Then he expands it to talk about the whole failed idea. It’s quite the trip down memory lane.

- Draft – 7:00PM | ESPN / TSN2 / Sportsnet1
- Cleveland at Baltimore – 7:00PM | Sportsnet

When the CFL starts, it means the NFL isn’t far behind. BIGGER BALLS = SHORTER WAIT!
