祝加拿大加式足球聯賽不列颠哥伦比亚卑詩雄獅隊今年贏格雷杯冠軍。此外祝溫哥華加人隊贏總統獎座·卡雲斯·甘保杯·史丹利盃。還每年祝溫哥華白頭浪隊贏美國足球大联盟杯。不要忘記每年祝溫哥華巨人贏西部冰球聯盟冠軍。

改建後的卑詩體育館於二十十一年九月三十日重新對外開放,首場體育活動為同日舉行的加拿大足球聯賽賽事,由主場的卑詩雄獅隊以三十三比二十四擊敗愛民頓愛斯基摩人隊。

祝你雞年行大運。

恭喜西雅图海鹰直到第四十八屆超級盃最終四十三比八大勝曾拿下兩次超級盃冠軍的丹佛野馬拿下隊史第一個超級盃冠軍。

There's a lot of good career advice in those videos.

The one regret I have is that when he returned to the Lions it was clear he was not to be involved in any with the football side of things as that was all Wally Buono. From Wally's perspective - I get it that he'd not want to give up what could be seen as control and quite frankly in his eyes - he could possibly feel demoted and unrewarded given how he was successful on the field.

Notwithstanding that it might have been a wise move for Braley to have Ackles play a larger role with his contacts in the NFL etc and tap into his experience as Director of Personnel for the Cowboys - a resource that it struck me wasn't used by the GM.

I looked at this still from the video, and I thought: Who is that familiar face with Bob Ackles?

Yup. Gotta be. Dick Butkus.

Two of my all time favourites. Dick Butkus and Bobby Ackles. That is a beautiful shot. :thup:

The Water Boy. He moved in magic circles in the football world. God Bless.

XFL? Well, not so much.
