Bush one hot bachelor

With just a few professional games under his belt with the B.C. Lions, Chris Bush is still unknown by nearly every CFL fan.

But just two years ago, Bush made quite a name for himself in Cosmopolitan Magazine, being named one of the "50 Hottest Bachelors in the U.S." in the November 2004 issue.

"I had a friend I had a class with and she did an internship with Cosmopolitan," explained Bush, who was enrolled at Tulane University in 2004, "and she nominated me for (the bachelor search)."

But instead of pursuing possible modelling avenues, Bush wanted to play football and was signed by the Tennessee Titans before venturing north with his receiving skills this season.

TSN TROUBLES: Without a doubt, TSN has done wonders to help market the CFL and often presents a much better broadcast than CBC - but this past weekend was not good for Canada's leading sports network.

The first game of Friday's doubleheader involved Calgary in Hamilton, but the first on-air scoreboard during the telecast showed B.C. playing against Calgary.

During the second game, the taped halftime interview with Rider coach Danny Barrett was badly out of sync, with Barrett's lips not coming close to matching the audio.

But the biggest faux pas was in plain view on the main page of TSN's website during the Rider game.

The Boston Pizza-sponsored on-line poll asked the following question: Who is the outstanding player on Saskatchewan this season?

The choices were Marcus Crandell, Eddie Davis, Nate Davis, Corey Holmes or Kenton Keith.

Holmes is now playing in Hamilton, while Crandell is now the backup quarterback. Not surprisingly, the poll was no longer visible in the second half after somebody noticed the mistakes.

HURT PARADE: With the rash of injuries to starting offensive lineman - four between Winnipeg and Hamilton - in the last week, you have to wonder if Sandy Annunziata's phone will soon ring. A starter for some games with the Eskimos last year, the versatile Canadian - he can play guard or centre - has won back-to-back Grey Cups.

LATE HIT: Montreal has allowed only four fourth-quarter points this season.
