Well, that wasn’t good. Not good at all. Edmonton Oilers delivered another tepid effort in falling 5-1 to Winnipeg Jets in what passes for NHL hockey in September. Some of the names had changed from Wednesday’s 5-3 loss in Vancouver but the result was depressingly familiar. Once again both “special” teams had an utterly brutal night, and for the second game in a row were the entire margin of difference
Let’s face it. When you name a restaurant MEAT, you’re asking for it in the one-liners department. You don’t need Larry David’s or Chelsea Handler’s deeply caffeinated writing staffs to instantly summon dozens of tempting potential skewers, as it were.

Krista LeRoux had a business plan, the experience and the ambition to own a hair salon and tattoo shop. But she didn’t have the money. For many budding entrepreneurs, the dream can often come to a screeching halt right there. And more than three years ago when the hairstylist sought to take over Twisted Banana — a well-known hair and tattoo establishment in Sherwood Park — she met her fair share of adversity. “I probably went to three or four different banks, but nobody would really give me the time of day,” says LeRoux, 30. But she kept knocking on doors and finally arrived at Servus Credit Union. It was a fortuitous move for the entrepreneur.
WINNIPEG – The Edmonton Eskimos aren’t scrambling for an East Division road map just yet. A 40-26 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Friday in front of 24,706 at Investors Group Field keeps them in control of their own destiny in their own division as they pulled to an even 7-7 in the standings. Sitting in fourth place looking in at the West’s post-season picture, the Eskimos not only climbed within two points of third-place Winnipeg but also take the season series, 2-1, along with its all-important tie-breaker advantage. Already in an East Division crossover spot ahead of the Toronto Argonauts – who, at 5-8, play the Montreal Alouettes on Sunday – the Eskimos are making a late charge in their own division with their second win in a row. The Bombers, meanwhile, are reeling with their second-straight loss after putting together a run of seven consecutive wins since making the change to Matt Nichols as starting quarterback. But the only streak to stay alive Friday saw Edmonton improve to 6-0 in Winnipeg since Investors Group Field opened in 2013, including last November’s Grey Cup championship. And maybe those surroundings sparked something in the defending champs

Winnipeg – NHL exhibition games are for the wannabes and the never-will-be’s, a time for prospects and suspects to try and show coaches why they might belong in the bigs, but on some nights, the senior citizens are more noticeable.
