20 weeks to go, bet wisely.

Week 1 Picks

Week 1 Picks It’s the first week of the season, I might be better off picking winners out of a hat. Hamilton @ Toronto: Thursday, June 23 (7:30pm EDT) Pick: Toronto I don’t know if I’ll pick Hamilton while Collaros sits on the sidelines injured. Montreal @ Winnipeg: Friday, June 24, (8:30pm EDT) Pick: Winnipeg It used to be that…

Only 6 of 9 make it in!

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…

A Hoser’s Review of the 102nd Grey Cup

If you followed The Hoser’s Guide to the 102nd Grey Cup (required reading before you go any further) then your trip will look remarkably similar to the exploits herein. Along the way I have ranked parties and events out of 5. (1/5) – Don’t bother next year. (2/5) – Worth one drink, but only to say you…
