I enjoyed Motorweek as well, a bit of a snooze fest, but well done and informative. I'll watch that any day of the week over most of today's knuckle dragging train wrecks.

Well let’s just point at last nights scoreboard from the CFL game! Lol. Most of us truly “bleed green” out here.
RedBlacks aren't doing much this year. Last game I think he was colorblind ... 4 or 5 footballs right into green shirts :shock:

I agree thou, Riders have the best fans in the league . My Son in law's father is in Regina, and a huge Rider fan. He usually calls when they beat us :lol:

Sounds like riders are just like the packers in the NFL, a very old team with the best fans.

Well then I guess your son inlaw got a call from dad the other day! I don't live far from Regina and should go to more games but the beer is cheaper at home :)

I really do not follow NFL but we have a very large and dedicated fan base for sure for our Saskatchewan Rough Riders

There was a US expansion a few years back but it was short lived.
Watch my Riders play the Bombers in the labour day classic today. This will be a great game between two top teams in the league.

Very interesting! Wikipedia says the expansion happened in the early to mid 90s with the Sacramento Gold Miners. Sounds like it failed due to politics about rules and stuff.

So it turns out the CFL is the only North American league that is Canada-only. I forgot that the NBA has the Ontario Raptors.

Yup there were many teams actually: from 1993 to 1995
Sacramento gold miners (later moved to SAN Antonio “Texans”
Las Vegas Posse
Baltimore Stallions
Shreveport pirates
Birmingham Barracudas
Memphis Mad dogs

In 1995 the Stallions actually won the championship (Grey Cup)

There have been a lot of ups and downs in our league and even today there are some teams that are barely making it from year to year financially unfortunately.

As for NBA our only team left up here is the Toronto Raptors. We also had a team in Vancouver for a few years .

A pity the expansion didn't pan out. Almost seems odd it didn't. But from a business sense there was prolly just too much competition for eyeballs on TV screens with the NFL here.

Ya it was a good try but really did not work out. Our football has a lot of differences and I don't think most people down there cared to take the time to watch and learn.

Maybe if it had been earlier, say, in the 1970s or something.

Anybody have any good products or methods for removing severe hard water buildup from fiberglass? Lime-away doesn't work, vinegar and cream of tartar doesn't work, no commercially available product I've ever tried works.

Might be stained into the fiberglass and irreparable?

I mean you could try muriatic acid, but be sure to open the windows with a fan and use a respirator and have thick rubber gloves.

Oh I forgot about CLR, yeah, try that before the muriatic acid. Less toxic.

I'll have to look at the shelf-o-crap and see what's there. I believe that CLR has been tried without success.

Acid is "supposed" to loosen hard water deposits - doesn't work in my experience, though am willing to try stuff stronger than Lime-away, CLR, and vinegar. Who knows, maybe muriatic acid is the way to go?

Give it a go. You can buy just a quart of it instead of a full gallon. Just be extremely careful with it, it's highly corrosive. Open windows, use fans, and wear rubber gloves. A respirator would not be out of the question.

I'd start with a dilute solution first, like 1:1 with water.

Shannon sorry to hear on your latest video about your garage break-in, or at least attempted break-in. That exact same thing happened to me like 10 years ago and I had my bike taken. I did that exact thing of wiping the codes and having he opener re-learn the remotes I still had. People are arseholes!

You can find new remotes on eBay for like $30. Mines a LiftMaster but the one I got is Chamberlain and I think it's the same as that Craftsman you have, it looks identical to mine.

And here I though everything north of the border was all maple leaves and maple syrup! :| ;)

Sorry to hear you had a break-in, hopefully nothing was taken, certainly nothing of import, and your life goes on as normal.

There is that perception that nothing bad ever happens in Canada. USA 2.0, the newer version, without all our bugs. lol
