    The Grey Cup foot-ball contest gets underway today.

    I don't know who's playing in it, where it's being played or at what time.

    I am in no way qualified to start such a thread, nevermind post in it.

    I do so only out of a sense of civic responsibility.

    Naz likes the CFL, he'll probably be into this.

    I'm told it is the throwing variety of football.

    I care. This thread is Exhibit A.

    I just don't follow sports.

    You seemed to be more interested in distant Canader elections.

    its the Winnipeg Blue Bombers vs. the BC Lions. they're playing this years Grey Cup in BC's home stadium, so its like a home game for the Lions. the Grey Cup is held at different sites every year like the Super Bowl, so this is a pretty rare occurence. there's only a 1 in 8 chance that a team would be playing the Grey Cup at home.

    Lions are up 11-0 thanks to a touchdown, a field goal, and a rouge.

    Nickelback performing at half time.. i'm pretty sure no other band has had the distinction of performing an NFL & CFL half time show in the same week.

    take that, Nickelback haters.


    14-3 now.

    A 1 point play, awarded when there's a touchback or when any punt or field goal try goes out of bounds in the end zone.
