Geroy Simon didn't know what to expect when he signed as a rookie free agent with the Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 1999. Fourteen years later, the former Maryland wide receiver has torn through the CFL record books on his way to becoming the most prolific pass catcher in league history. The 38-year-old Simon holds the CFL record for receiving yards (16,188), and he tied Ben Cahoon's record for most career receptions (1,017) last week. He can break that mark Sunday when his Saskatchewan Roughriders visit the Montreal Alouettes.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Quarterback Matt Dunigan couldn't remember the last time a goal post should have been called for pass interference.Punter and holder Bob Cameron was at a loss to explain how a series of weird occurrences kept him from filling in his teammates at a time when communication was essential.But strange as they may be for an exacting team such as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, both incidents proved to be turning points in a 14-12 loss to the Baltimore CFLs that was full of them.

They love the lousy weather, and they can't wait to welcome visitors.The Bombers are where they want to be, at home, and facing a challenge they want to meet, settling a score with the Baltimore CFLs.The score to be settled is that nasty 57-10 matter of Oct. 29. The Bombers have lived with the mental scars of that thrashing for the past three weeks.
