WINNIPEG - It struck me the other day the only thing missing from the Blue Bombers’ three-ring circus was a soap opera involving the kickers.

Presto — one shows up in the form of veteran boot Sandro DeAngelis.

(ital) Blue Bombers sign all-star kicker, (ital) read the Bombers’ news release trumpeting the signing of the “three-time CFL all-star.”

Never mind DeAngelis hasn’t been a CFL all-star for a few years. He’s an all-star in the minds of the two people that matter most: Winnipeg head coach Tim Burke and special teams co-ordinator Craig Dickenson, who watched the dynamic DeAngelis win a few games for them in Calgary during the guy’s prime.
