Far be it from me to sit here and talk about major competitions in Europe, then forget to mention the big event going down in our northern backyard. Yes, the Canadian Football League is finally getting down to brass tacks after spending 18 games determining which two teams sucked the most.
Seriously, there are eight teams in the CFL, and six of them make the playoffs. The Montreal Alouettes are in with a record of 8-10, while the Calgary Stampeders are 7-10-1. They both have playoff games on Sunday. Montreal is 0-3 against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, while Calgary is 1-3 against the Saskatchewan Rough Riders. Division winners Toronto and B.C. await the winners of these games.
The Grey Cup awaits in Toronto on November 25, as does lovely Courtney, who was recently named Miss Argo 2007. Unlike Nelly Furtado last year, Courtney won’t be freezing her ass off outside. The Final is at the Rogers Centre this year.
UPDATE: Courtesy of Deadspin, here’s a slightly more thorough preview of the CFL playoffs from Food Court Lunch.
