Hey all,

I'm going to be writing for CFL News Hub covering the Bombers.

I wrote my first article for CFL News Hub, so we will see when it?s published.

Lots of respect to those who wrote articles, it?s not as easy as it looks.

I?m sure it?s going to be a bit rough at first, so if you read, please extend some grace as I learn.

I will do that Donny. But .. where were you on Friday, the RedBlacks were showing very little respect for 107, it would have helped if you were there !!

I'm going to be writing for CFL News Hub covering the Bombers.

Is CFL News Hub an old-fashioned print publication or is it strictly an online thingy?

I was away over the weekend at a cabin in Ontario. We had a provincial leader's retreat for an organization that I am a part of (I am the MB Provincial Leader).

I did pick Masoli in my fantasy to make sure they did not win!

Found a small error  Cheesy

Quote from the article
Quote
Marc Liegghio was not terrible in this game, going two for two on field-goal attempts (both being between 20-29 yards) but it was the play after Prukop scored the go-ahead touchdown that will bring about some of those hard conversations as Prukop missed the point-after (which should be a gimme). Missing that point-after would position the Ottawa Red Blacks within striking distance, where a field goal could now win the game.

Should be Liegghio that missed the point after.

Otherwise good article!

This one just got published. Feel free to read, and if you find mistakes, I'm more than happy to hear about them to fix them. (I can't afford a copy editor!)

Very Good!
As the article moved toward the middle, you seemed to get very comfortable and the story became more compelling.  The last paragraph raising questions about the next game was bang -on.

Just a comment, about a couple of the opening paragraphs......Were there a couple of "run - on" sentences?  I had to stop and re-read.  Just my opinion, and that coming from a butcher of grammar, spelling  and "run-on" sentences!!!


Congrats!  Keep up the good work!

Good job, but I believe Zac scrambled and made the shovel pass to Oliveria.

It's learning as I go.

Quite literally, I applied for the job, but they already had a Bomber guy. That guy dropped off. I got an email asking it I wanted to do it. Then I got an email with a user name, a password, and a 7 page document on how to use the publishing site. That's it.
