England will play its semifinal match against defending champion Japan, which beat Australia 1-nil for its spot in the final four. The US and Germany go at it in the other semi.

Nick Moore made a nice sliding catch on an 18-yard throw from Drew Willy with seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers opened their regular season with a 30-26 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Willy finished with 325 passing yards and three touchdowns.

To my pal in Ottawa,

Love your city and enjoyed going to a CFL game their in 2003 when the Riders met your Renegades.


I am not affiliated with Riderville. It is the name of the team's web-site and their venue for party time at the Grey Cup, which I hope to will attend in 2015.

No my friend, I am a part of Rider Nation, a global phenomenon. Good luck with your R Nation. We will see if your team is ready when the play R Roughriders.
