That's right ladies and gentlemen, he's back!  If your #7 jerseys are packed away somewhere in your closet, bring them back out! Weston Dressler will be returning to the Riders! Saskatchewan residents were holding our breath while Dressler was trying to make a decision which team he would be signing with.  But Rider fans can breathe a sigh of relief!  It was announced by the Saskatchewan Roughriders this morning that Dressler will be making a return to Riderville and has signed a year long contract!

We could even get to see him back in green and white as quick as Sunday for the Labour Day Classic!  Either way, there will be alot of TSN cameras on him this weekend with or without him in the game.

Riders take on the Bombers Sunday @ 2pm in the Labour Day Classic

Beyonce was honored with the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award last night.  But before she was given the award, she performed EVERY SONG from her new album.  The audience loved it and even chanted Beyonce's name after she accepted her award.  Her husband Jay-Z and her daughter Blue Ivy brought Beyonce the award and she accepted it with tears in her eyes.
