Banjo Bowl victory highlights banner day

The former Blue Bombers player who called people from Regina "a bunch of banjo-pickin' inbreds" did more than insult the citizens of Saskatchewan's largest city.
He also provided the name for the BANJO BOWL, the annual post-Labour Day rematch between the WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS and the SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS, annually held at Canad Inns Stadium in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The Riders won this season's Banjo Bowl this afternoon, defeating the Blue Bombers, 55-10.
Saskatchewan's Wes Cates rushed for two touchdowns and caught a touchdown pass, while Riders quarterback Darian Durant threw for a touchdown and rushed for another.
Former Saskatchewan quarterback Michael Bishop threw two interceptions for the Blue Bombers.
I followed the Banjo Bowl -- and games in two other sports -- live online this afternoon.
The SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS defeated their arch rivals, the LOS ANGELES DODGERS, 7-2, while the SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS opened the NFL season by winning, 20-16, at the ARIZONA CARDINALS.
Add the college-football victory in the wee hours of the morning by MY BELOVED OREGON DUCKS, and today was a banner sports day!
