Lose your illusions, part 7 

Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?
The Renegades' continued their steady descent into the third circle of hell (third, of course, because they seem to be gluttons for punishment), taking a 57-16 paddling from the Edmonton Eskimos. Things got off to a promising start, with a 72-yard TD to Yo Murphy, and a single on the ensuing kickoff. Unfortunately, outside the brief reprieve of a 75-yard TD to Jason Armstead, it was all downhill from there. In fact, it wasn't even downhill as much as it was a cordless bungee jump.

(Coming soon to an unemployment office near you: Sandro "wide-and-right" Sciortino, and his most recent 0-fer-3 performance.)

Any illusions of playoff glory are now shattered, like windows at a cancelled G'n'R concert. Things are not likely to improve much against the not-so-gentil-Alouettes on Friday.
...the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.
