What a Day in Riders History!

Today is a memorable day in Saskatchewan Roughriders history:
On November 26th, 1966, the Riders won their 1st Grey Cup by downing Ottawa 29-14 at Empire Stadium in B-C. 32,344 watched Ron Lancaster throw 3 TD passes and George Reed took home the MVP honours by rushing 31 times for 133 yds and a TD.

23 years later on this same date Dave Ridgway connected on a 35 yard field goal as the Riders would knock off Hamilton 43-40 at Sky Dome in Toronto in what is considered the greatest Grey Cup of all time. The Robo-Kicker says at this time of year it’s nice to be reminded about how important that game is in team and league history!

Oh Crap!

Are you one of those people who refuse to poop in a public bathroom, and hold it until you get home?  Well . . . you’re lucky to be alive.

According to doctors, holding in your poop can be DANGEROUS . . . and even fatal. When you hold it in too often, you can make your sphincter muscles dysfunctional.

You can also develop an impacted bowel . . . that’s when a chunk of feces gets stuck and can’t move. And that can cause serious constipation issues.

Even worse, it’s basically a big lump of toxins. So if you don’t get treatment for it, it COULD require surgery.

And in the most extreme cases, it might even be FATAL.


KIM KARDASHIAN wants KANYE WEST to pay up BIG-TIME after she gives birth to their second child. She wants a diamond choker that costs about $1 million as a “push present”. She says, quote, “We women go through an entire pregnancy carrying a baby . . . of course it only makes sense that we get something amazing to show how amazing we are!”

The ’80s song “The Final Countdown” by EUROPE never made it to #1 on a Billboard chart, until now. Thanks to the Geico ad featuring the band singing the song, it’s now at #1 on the Top Commercials chart, which determines the most popular songs being used in current ad campaigns.

Sexy Pictures of Famous People

1. Did CHRIS HEMSWORTH really lose this much weight for his new movie “In the Heart of the Sea”?

2. SALMA HAYEK’s cleavage remains one of the Great Wonders of the World.

3. ROSE MCGOWAN shaved her head.

Miley Cyrus turns 23 today:

. . . Which begs the question: what do you get someone who’s licked everything?

David Beckham says that growing up, he picked soccer over girls. Obviously, it worked out for him in the end. However, I can say from experience that the results are NOT the same when you pick “Star Wars” over girls.

Olivia Is To Blame For Packers Losing Skid



The Green Bay Packers are riding a three-game losing streak, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been so great during the team’s current skid. Nothing during Green Bay’s 6-0 start signaled an impending meltdown, so Packers fans are struggling to come up with answers.

One Journal Sentinel commenter thinks he knows what’s up. According to him, Rodgers’ girlfriend, Hollywood actress Olivia Munn, is to blame for the team’s slump and the All-Pro passer’s pedestrian outings.


“ Ever since it came out that Rodgers and Munn were dating and her spouting off on TV about their sex life Rodgers isn’t a good QB. The team used to glorify God but now there is no mention of him from anybody. I believe God has taken his praise away from the players and coaches on this team.”

One fan tweet:

I am going to start a “Break up Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn” GoFundMe campaign. Enough is enough


The thing fans forget is players are ppl too! Maybe Rodgers is having some off field issues and maybe Aaron and Olivia are fighting…who knows and who cares? So the next time you have a personal issue at home with your significant other your boss should suspend you? 


God has nothing to do with it…The O Line can’t block, his receivers are hurt and the defence went to a Junior Mertile tackling camp.


Michael Phelps announced this week that his girlfriend is pregnant. Because Michael Phelps and “good swimmers” go together.


An Oklahoma Sooners fan was in Texas last weekend for the Oklahoma-Baylor football game, but got so drunk on Friday night he broke into a courthouse to sleep . . . because he thought it was the Hilton. And the cops arrested him when the alarm went off.



A man painted his home in tiger stripes to pay tribute to the Cincinnati Bengals. My marriage pays tribute to the Tennessee Titans by featuring little scoring.


Do You Want First Date Success?



Here’s a new first date strategy for all the single women out there:  Ask the guy if he wants to go to a BUFFET.  Sure, it might not be the most romantic option . . . but it’s your best way to figure out how he feels about you.

A new study by Cornell University in New York found a good sign a guy is into you is . . . how much he EATS on a date.  So if he chows down like he’s anticipating some kind of 40-year famine, you’re in.

The researchers found that guys ate 93% more pizza and 86% more salad when they were eating with a woman they wanted to impress.

Their theory is that men overeat to show off how HEALTHY and FIT they are . . . which women are biologically attracted to.

Women didn’t eat any more or less when they were with a guy than when they ate with other women.

A guy in Ohio bought a house after he got divorced, and painted it bright ORANGE with tiger stripes for the Cincinnati Bengals. He says he’s been a fan for 40 years, they’ve never been this good, and he couldn’t have done it if he was still married.  They were undefeated until they lost to the Texans last night, so they’re 8 and 1.


A bunch of people who ran a half-marathon in Thailand on Sunday are angry, because it was supposed to be 13.1 miles, which is the normal distance. But they ended up running 17 miles, because a sign was pointing in the wrong direction.


People are still talking about how Ronda Rousey was knocked out by underdog Holly Holm in their UFC fight. It was the most brutal and violent fight between two women since a couple of ladies battled outside of a Walmart on Black Friday.

A Montage of Motivational Speeches from Sports Movies

If you need some inspiration, check out a montage of the best motivational speeches from over 30 different sports movies.

Some are them are dramatic, like Al Pacino’s speech in “Any Given Sunday” . . . and some are goofy, like Chubbs in “Happy Gilmore”, talking about how “it’s all in the hips.”

(Search for “Movie Coach Super Speech.”)

47 years ago . . . In 1968, NBC outraged football fans by cutting away from the final minutes of a NEW YORK JETS – OAKLAND RAIDERS game to begin its very special presentation of “HEIDI” on schedule!

(Fans missed seeing the Raiders come from behind and score 14 points in the final 65 seconds to beat the Jets, 43-to-32.)

National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman took in more than $9.6 million in salary and benefits during the NHL’s 2013-14 season, according to the league’s most recently released annual tax filing.  Only four players in the league make more than Bettman.
Hey Volleyball players listen up….

This year the Element Volleyball Club is excited to offer a Developmental Team program for younger girls. The Developmental team will be for girls in grade 6 & 7 or born on Sept. 1, 2002 or later. The program will prepare the younger athlete to play in our club as they get older. The emphasis would be on proper skill development, transitional skills and team play. Players will get over 40 hours of instruction and may also be entered in 1 or 2 tournaments to give experience with the club dynamics. A typical practice would be 1 & 1/4 hours of skill development and 45 minutes of 6 on 6 team play.


(There would still be a tryout for this team but we would like to keep 16 girls that have the potential to play at a higher level. The cost for our developmental team will be $200.

Tryouts will be Sunday Dec. 6 & 13 from 10:00 am to noon. Practice times will be on Sundays from 10 am to noon starting on January 3rd and the season will last until April 10th. We will also add a second practice time during the week when the gym schedule is finalized.

For more information on our Development Team please contact Lewie Bell at or 630-8390)

Holly/Wolf Report

JENNIFER LAWRENCE can’t get a date, because guys are afraid to approach her. She says, quote, “I am lonely every Saturday night . . . I feel like I need to meet a guy, with all due respect, who has been living in Baghdad for five years who has no idea who I am.”

“Access Hollywood”says that GAVIN ROSSDALE left the hospital after GWEN STEFANI gave birth to their son Apollo last year, in order to have sex with the nanny. They would also reportedly do it on Gavin’s tour bus when the kids were sleeping, and Gwen was off shooting “The Voice”

How many pictures of CHRISTINA MILIAN’s cleavage are enough? Well, there are eight here, and I haven’t reached my limit yet.

Former MOTORHEAD drummer PHIL “PHILTHY ANIMAL” TAYLOR died Wednesday after a long illness. He was 61. Phil drummed during the band’s “classic” period, from 1975 to 1984 . . . and then again from 1987 to 1992. 

A lot of early thrash metal drummers were influenced by Phil’s double bass assault on the classic Motorhead track Overkill in 1979 . . . including Lars Ulrich from Metallica and Dave Lombardo from Slayer.

Carol Doda, a legendary stripper in San Francisco, died this week at the age of 78. Speaking of 78-year-old women that are often naked, what’s new with Madonna?

“Guinness World Records Day” Round-Up

Yesterday was the 11th annual “Guinness World Records Day”. And according to Guinness, 650 THOUSAND records were attempted worldwide.

They posted videos of a bunch of new records on their YouTube page yesterday, including the tightest reverse parallel parking job . . . a dog that rode a skateboard through 30 people’s legs . . . a guy who shoved 15 lit candles in his mouth . . .

A guy in Japan who ran a 100-meter dash on all fours . . . a robot that solved a Rubik’s Cube in 2.4 seconds . . . and seven new records set by the Harlem Globetrotters.

Most of the ones they posted actually happened over the last few weeks. We assume they’ll also post the best ones from yesterday at some point.

Win the Day!

Ballsy’s Sports Shorts

The Kansas City Royals won the World Series last night.  They beat the New York Mets 7 to 2 in Game five, and won the series four games to one.  They were actually down 2-to-0 in the top of the ninth, but scored a couple runs to tie the game.  Then it went to the 12th inning, when they blew it open and got FIVE runs, giving them the win.  It’s the first World Series win for the Royals in 30 years.


Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette was carted off the field yesterday, after being hit hard by Cowboys safety Jeff Heath during a punt.  He suffered a concussion, but it sounds like he’s okay.  And Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant denied saying “that’s what he gets” after he was knocked out.  (Dez said he’d never wish poorly on a player who’s been knocked down, and he actually got down on one knee and prayed for him.


Trick or Treat!

There’s a video called “Reverse Trick-or-Treating” that’s making the rounds.  Two guys brought a door with them, and set it up on people’s porches before they knocked.  Then people would answer their door, knock on THEIR door, and the guys would give them candy.


Meatloaf is mad……


Someone posted video of Meat Loaf performing “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” at the Arizona State Fair last month, and people started RIPPING on his vocals.  Meat Loaf found out, and he wasn’t pleased.  He basically said anyone that expects him to still sing like a twenty-something now that he’s in his 60’s is crazy
