Pacman close to deal to play in CFL: 26 years old and already a "has been", Jones will head north in the hope that the CFL will have fewer restrictions on his night clubbing lifestyle.

The only thing that I'm a bit cautious of is the CFL continuing to be thought of as a "second-rate" or "last-chance" league. No, it's not the NFL, but it is a quality product on its own.

As one of the most recognizable faces in the NFL, Ricky Williams reportedly was able to walk the streets of Toronto without much recognition. Perhaps the relatively scaled-back public attention could let Adam (his mama named him Adam, I'm gonna call him Adam) Jones focus on playing football. Pacman will always have a place to play in Vegas.

Good riddance. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on you way out.

IN Canada, its called making it snow, not making it rain. Hope someone told him. Canadian strippers beware

Instead of money to make it rain, what is he gonna use to make it snow?

You throw "Loonies" in the air to make it snow. Thats what they call the canadian money i think. The exchange rate will really hurt him though.

So......

Does that make the Candian strippers "snow blowers"?

Ahem. It is more commonly referred to as the "Canadian Ballet"... Them 'rippers are professonals.

He's going to Winnipeg... I don't think there is any night life in Winterpeg. He'll have to settle clubbing at Boston Pizza and be done by 10.

Going to school on the other side of the border I thought maybe you just had a strong arts program.

A classic case of undeniable talent being trumped by undeserved attitude.

You're kiddin', right? Have you ever been to Winnipeg before? There's plenty of places to go to at night like these spots or here if you're feeling a bit more adventurous. I spent a little time in Canada before and had the time of my life.

I think BI has identified enough sources of amusement to keep Adam occupied and entertained.

Of special interest no doubt would be the Gentleman's Club on Notre Dame Ave.

Before long, he'll have a new nickname (at least with the Montreal fans):

L'Homme Pac of Notre Dame.

Oh, it's an art, chief. We also have majors in Lumberjacking and Staying Out Of Unnecessary Wars, eh?

Sure they have clubs, BI, but how can you get down when they just play "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald" over and over?

Dammit! Topped again. Well played, fraze...well played.

And as quick as this story hit the press ... it's over. No Pacman. No rainin' Loonies. Just the hapless Bombers and minus 40 waiting 'round the corner.

Not even the CFL wants Pacman? Wow! This dudes career is O-V-E-R!
