Around the web ... Laurier's Phillips may start for Stamps

It's been a slow Monday, but there are a few headlines to dig out of the dirt.

  • Justin Phillips (Laurier) might get a start at defensive end this week for the Calgary Stampeders after a six-tackle, one-sack performance. Tim O'Neill (Calgary Dinos) is to start at centre. (CFL Buzz)

  • TSN's Duane Forde is feigning angst over Queen's-educated colleagues Jock Climie and Chris Cuthbert ribbing him about ex-Golden Gael Rob Bagg having more receiving yards than Forde's fellow Western alumnus, Andy Fantuz. (

  • Bagg was obviously glad to get his first two CFL touchdowns. He was tackled inside the five-yard line three times as a rookie. (Rider Rumblings)

  • Do you have the heart to point out to Sportsnet Connected's Jim Lang that it is Rob Bagg, not Rod? (
  • Mark Wacyk looks at the up-and-coming Winnipeg Wesmen. (

  • Ottawa point guard Jahenns Manigat, brother of former Ottawa Gee-Gees (and present-day Carleton Raven) Willy Manigat, received a leadership award at last weekend's Basketball Without Borders camp in Mexico City. (Sun Media)
  • Laurier has added forward Brad Jackson, who had 77 points in 53 games with the Junior A Woodstock (N.B.) Slammers, where he was captain. (Woodstock Bugle-Observer)

  • Edmonton Oil Kings publicize forward Jeff Lee — 6-foot-2, 210 lbs., and a 22-goal man in the tight-checking WHL last season — signing with the UNB Varsity Reds. I will issue a standing apology for the first time I call him Jason Lee (big My Name Is Earl fan). (press release)

  • York Lions coach Dan Church has been appointed coach for Canada's under-18 women's hockey team (which includes two Ottawa players, winger Jamie Lee Rattray and goalie Erica Howe). (The Canadian Press)
