QUOTE OF THE DAY

"He's a clone of (Joe) Fleming at a distance. There's more than a slight resemblance. At 20 (years old), Jeff Noga has lost his hair with great urgency."

- Bombers head coach Jim Daley, revealing that the team has nicknamed Noga, a DE from the Winnipeg Rifles junior team, "Little Joe." Both Fleming and Noga shave their heads to conceal their hair-challenged scalps and are spitting images of one another.

STAR OF THE DAY

SB Wane McGarity looked great during practice and later drew praise from Daley for his route running and his attention to detail during drills from inside the 10-yard line.

CATCH OF THE DAY

Elgin Hicks made a dandy snag while riding the back of DB William Fields. Honourable mention to Wane McGarity, who got some serious air time to haul in a touchdown toss.

HIT OF THE DAY

The Bombers took the pads off for yesterday's lone workout, so there were no real slobberknockers. However, DT Joe Fleming gets the nod for sending OL Jean-Francois Ostiguy flying with a shot from behind. Ostiguy got up and gave Fleming a stare that drew "Oooohs" from the players on the sideline. "I gave him a jack in the back, which is not the nicest thing to do," Fleming said, "but I was looking for some entertainment today."

TASK OF THE DAY

Does the GM have to do everything around here? One of Brendan Taman's jobs yesterday was to put the licence plates on the coaching staff's spiffy new team vehicles.
