Division Final Weekend Picks

Division Final Weekend Picks A ticket to Grey Cup on the line! Hamilton @ Ottawa: Sunday, November 22 (1:00pm EDT) Pick: Ottawa Hamilton hasn’t been able to beat these guys yet this year. Calgary @ Edmonton: Sunday, November 22 (4:30pm EDT) Pick: Edmonton It’ll be close but I’m giving Edmonton the edge. Last week 1-1. Some game in the…

It doesn't matter how expensive they are, Torontonians eventually get sick of their toys.

The Last Ever Football Game at SkyDome

I haven’t heard any mention of it but tonight’s Bombers v Argos tilt is likely the last ever football game that will be played at SkyDome (I’ll never accept Rogers Centre). The Argos will finish third, meaning no home playoff game. Next year’s Grey Cup (and all the ones after that in TO) will be…

Pat Tracey won't be the last.

Caution Rolling Heads Coming

The sword has finally fallen and Pat Tracey is mercifully no longer the Special Teams Coordinator of the Blue Bumblers.  Why was his decapitation delayed for so long?  Most likely because Tracey was the position coach for both O’Shea and Kyle Walters in University.  It’s always easier to look the other way then do what needs to be…

Die Hard Bomber Fans Throwing in the Towel

Several of you let me know how you were feeling following Sunday’s implosion.  It wasn’t pretty. I’m sick of looking forward to a game, only to turn the channel after 10 minutes of play.  I don’t plan on altering my schedule based upon a game,  hosting any bomber parties / or attending one due to the…

The Mac, She’s a Cruel Mistress

Canadian Football enters its second week after an opening set that would have taken a time machine to forecast.  A couple of thoughts before kick-off tonight: The Fragile Quarterback League 3/9 CFL starters are now injured after the first week and a full 33% of quarterbacks that saw any game action are hurt.  Underwater welding would be…

TFC – Toronto F****** Crybabies

It’s about damn time the Argos were finally sold to 2/3rds of MLSE.  The Great Satan has done everything it could to screw them and the CFL but for once they’ve failed to destroy something good. Although it was certainly sulking behind the scenes, the Great Satan wasn’t crying about anything publicly (though I theorize it may have had a hand in ruining…

Proof I was there.

Back From the 102nd Grey Cup

You may or may not be surprised to learn that I made it home from Vancouver alive.  l admit that I had no idea the Cats almost pulled it off right at the end until I picked up the paper the next morning (to be explained later).  Many souvenirs from one of the best Grey…

The Hoser’s Guide to the 102nd Grey Cup

The Grand National Drunk is back! I will attempt to impart some of the drunken wisdom acquired first hand over the years in the space following.  Yes, most of this is about drinking and where you can go to have the most fun drinking and yes, I pecked it out one handed with a drink in…
