Hang In There

Thanks to a BGA special correspondent, there's a story out of the Calgary Stampeders training camp under the headline, Orimolade a Quick Study. (LINK)

From the story:
Hailing from a place that can claim 79 Rhodes Scholars and 13 Pulitzer Prize winners among its graduates, Orimolade finds himself enrolled in a football school that has produced seven Grey Cups and nine MOP recipients. 
“What I like most about him,’’ says (Calgary defensive line coach Corey) Mace, “is that he’s studious, which I guess makes sense considering where he went to school. 
“He’s looking to get his assignment, his alignment, right. Get the job done properly.
“Physical tools: He’s got a heckuva get-off, great feet, good hands, his pass rush … let’s just say you like what you see early. But can he do it consistently? That’s what’ll separate him from being a training-camp guy or a guy that’ll stick around for years to come." 
For those of you who are keeping score, we close on the house sale Friday. All of the furniture is out of the house so now it's finishing boxing up the basement, the loft and whatever else is left here and there. Then all of the garage and workbench stuff and whatever else needs to be carted off to our storage locker. It's safe to say it's been a thrash and Mrs. BGA and I are dragging.

In a perfect world, BGA Daily will resume Tuesday. After packing up and loading 22 years worth of life we're going to kick back and do absolutely nothing until then ;-)
