Going Green & getting a Gretzky jersey!

I happened to catch this live last night on the tube - former Kelowna Rocket Jamie Benn scoring on a spectacular effort shorthanded:


Canada's football championship goes tomorrow and I say, "Go Green!" That would be throwing my support behind the Saskatchewan Roughriders against Montreal! Some sweet hands here by Weston Dressler with the 2010 CFL Play of the Year. Dressler wasn't able to play in last year's Grey Cup featuring the same teams because he'd broken his leg and sprained his ankle simultaneously October 10. He ended up watching his team's agonizing 28-27 loss to the Alouettes from the sidelines.

The Grey Cup game tomorrow is in Edmonton, while tonight two Edmonton Oilers' jerseys autographed by Wayne Gretzky will be auctioned off at the Kelowna Chiefs game! I will be your PA announcer.


Wayne Gretzky is the uncle of the Chiefs' Bobby Brown (above). Five members of Bobby's immediate family (his mother, father, grandmother,
an aunt and uncle) have all been diagnosed with one form of cancer or another. Read Bobby's story of courage here.
