Steve Morley likes to dabble in acting. A couple of years ago he appeared in the background of a figure skating movie called Ice Castles.

That love of the cinema is probably why on Saturday he compared his situation in Bombers training camp this year to that of Rocky Balboa. Morley is Winnipeg’s starting right guard, but the next generation is ready to pounce and take his job.
