So I think I’ve finally woken from my tryptophan coma this weekend, and I now find myself sitting in Champps — because the Steelers don’t play until tomorrow night, of course — waiting for a full afternoon of NFL games. (I haven’t posted to this blog from my Treo in a while, so hopefully, the formatting isn’t goofy.)
I would be remiss, though, if I failed to mention that the 95th edition of the CFL’s championship game, the Grey Cup Final, kicks off tonight at 5:30 PM in Toronto. Either the Winnipeg Blue Bombers or the Saskatchewan Rough Riders will walk away with the coveted Canadian gridiron trophy.
If you’re in America, it should be on one of the regional sports channels that you can get over satellite — probably Altitude Sports. If you don’t have satellite TV, it should be shown in one of your local sports bars. I recommend calling ahead.
Enjoy these Grey Cup Finals while you can folks. If the NFL gets its dirty little claws into Toronto, we may not get to the 100th Grey Cup — even if some Canadians think the NFL sucks.
