I hate to admit that I saw a 'tailgating' special on one of the flyers for the grocery stores today and couldn't think why. Then it clicked that it was Grey Cup. I remember more than one wild party back in my college days.

Nope. Not after the als lost the game against the argos because dufus couldn't catch a perfectly positioned ball.

I rarely watch futebawl, but I'll definitely the 100th Grey Cup.

I went to the 76 Grey Cup at Exhibition Stadium, because I knew someone playing in that game.

I really hate the Niffle. It seems to have nothing to do with football. Just gambling. But each to their own. I know it's gotten really popular over the past decade.

It sucks but there was a lot more fail from the Als in that game than that one play.

I'll still be at the Grey Cup, if nothing at least to cheer for ABA (Anybody But the Argos).

4 shirts packed for the weekend, 3 of them red

Lucky you, I could have gotten tickets for $800/piece, top row of level 500....no thank-you. Where are you sitting?

Regardless, I'll buy some beer and pizza and friends (ya, well, friends should be free) and watch it on the projector...

I'm up in the 500 level but I only paid about $225 a ticket all-in, got them through the "other teams" season ticket holder deals back in May.

And lucky me happens to be in the same hotel all the cheerleaders (well, I assume all, so far we've seen Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Hamilton and BC cheerleaders) are staying at.

Nothing wakes you up quite like an elevator ride cramped among 9 cheerleaders! lol

I don't have cable, and CFL games are no longer broadcast on free TV. So no.

Why? Cornish was robbed by the eastern press.....the guy is the best
Canadian player in the league without question. The best defence in
the league (BC Lions) couldn't stop him in the semis.....he could get
5-7 yards a carry with ease. That will KILL you in the CFL.

As for Stamps vs Argos....I have relatives in Calgary who will write
me out of their wills if I don't root for Calgary!

Seeing how I've watched every non-preseason CFL game this year, I would say YES to the poll.

As far as the Als goes, the pass at the endzone would not have won the game. It would have tied it and sent the game in overtime. That team is just not good enough. If they were, they would not already be looking for a coaching change at Defensive Coordinator.

If you do not have tv access to the Grey Cup, then you could watch the replay on TSN's website shortly after it ends. Problem is that the game will be the top story so you might know the results before watching the replay. What I do is cover part of the screen and get the direct link for the 1st quarter. No fun if you already know who won. I watched many games this way as they cut out the commercials breaks which ESPN3 does not.

Voters for the MOP just look at stats. To them, Owens' record was more impressive than Cornish's. If I were picking the top player in the CFL for this year, it would have been neither one. It would have been Lulay. However, his numbers do not stand out.

Isn't it ironic that a Canadian company will make you pay to watch Canadian football, but give you American football for free?

That's why i'll be watching the game. Plus it's been 8 years since the Argonauts won the grey cup. The Toronto Argonauts defeated the B.C. Lions 27-19 November 24, 2004.

Watching everything except the half time show going to try and hook up with some American friends over Skype who will be watching the game on NBC Sports.

I'd rather tie my unmentionables to a live electrical wire than watch J***** B*****

Also interesting that both coaches were born in Pennsylvania.

Congratulations on the 100th guys.

Very impressive, and through many difficult times the CFL survived!

Admittedly, JB will be the lowlight of the half-time show, but the rest are okay. Still, it beats the half-time that the NFL usually feeds people...about 12 minutes of commercials and musical hell.

The other CTV1-2-3- are all for American rebroadcasting. Not for a ny of Canadian programs. Its not CTV, Canadian TV. It has become all American re broadcaster on Canadian TV.

Why? TSN negotiated the rights. And since TSN took over CFL broadcasts over from CBC, ratings have blossomed.
