The joke is on Canada

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- On the day J.P. Losman appeared to creep closer to the starting assignment against the Miami Dolphins at Rogers Centre on Sunday, offensive tackle Langston Walker stole the show.

Off the field, anyway.

Upon learning that Parliament had been suspended in Canada yesterday, Walker decided to joke with visiting reporters from the Great White North.

"There will be tanks rolling up Spadina Ave.," Walker said after practice.

"Don't expect to get onto the carpool lane on the QEW. It's now been designated the Humvee lane, so unless you've got armour on your car and a thing you can stick your gun out, stay off the QEW."

Asked what he knew about Canada, Walker continued his schtick.

"They separate us from Alaska," he said. "We went to war with them one time."

Yuks aside, Walker is a bright guy who attended Cal and knows a lot about Canada. In fact, during his weekly video hit on the Bills website called "68 Seconds," Walker asked teammates for their knowledge of Toronto.

Most answers were good, although many had difficulty identifying the name of the pro soccer team as Toronto FC.

As for Losman, he was taking all the snaps with the first unit while Trent Edwards failed to practice for a second consecutive day.

Coach Dick Jauron said Edwards, who has been out with a groin injury, felt better yesterday, but would not commit to a starter as of yet.

Losman has seven touchdowns and just two interceptions in four career games against Miami.

A SELLOUT ... FINALLY

Organizers announced yesterday the game officially is a sellout. What took so long? ... Defensive end Aaron Schobel practised for a second day in a row and could return to the lineup. He's been out with a foot injury since Week 6 ... Cornerback Leodis McKelvin was named the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Month for November.
