I thought some good ole goofy Canadian Football might be a welcome distraction on the board. I am not a huge NFL fan and welcome a different product on Sunday. Watching the player intros make me think this could be fun to watch.
OT: The Grey Cup is on right now - NBCSN
So. Many. Touques.
It's Regina...the home of cold in Canada.
Never said it was a bad thing...
Kinda always wanted to be Canadian.
I got married in Canada. We eloped and honeymooned up in Tobermory. Not in November, though.
Hope you got the Che-chemaun ferry to Manitoulin Island. Good Times.
Spent our island time camping on Flowerpot.
and see what we can do. Maybe we could make you an honourary Canadian.
So. Many. Touques.
What the hell is a tuque?
Just got this bad boy the other day to gear up for Winter Classic:
I do not understand this language you are speaking.
I do believe James Rogers is on the roster.
And the Rough Riders take a 7-3 lead on a TD pass made possible by an endzone that is 25 yards deep.
predating the first postseason NFL game (1933) by 24 years.
Look, a night game in November. In Canada.
Bunch of pussies, Big Ten.
Not too cold from texts I got...like 16 or 17with a wind chill down to -5 or so...
Earlier in the week it was -40 with the wind chill...
I love watching the CFL, for the more wide-open style of play and the announcer's accents
Lots of 2-and-outs.
Shhhhhhh! Don't tell Borges that 2-and-out is possible in football.
That woulld be the one lesson that big ten coaches take from this.
Canadian here but my first love is and has always been NCAA Football and more specifically the Wolverines (actually married this wife for her season tickets!!!). Having said that I always thought it would be great to see the U.S calibre talent play a few games with our rules......just for fun.
This wife? How many do you have?
polygamy. Well, some parts do.
I had the first two for three seasons each but when the play didn't get any better and they failed to execute I moved on. Hang on......wrong story. BTW......Polygamy!!! Who in their right mind would want more than one at a time
than have Al Borges as the OC.
That's why I like NCAA football. It's closer to the wide open CFL style of play (more because of mismatches than intentional style, but whatever).
Except for the NCAA football they currently play in Ann Arbor.
Defense, not really on Offense.
And Saskatchewan will take it. Nice for a fanbase that really, really cares about the team.
My Dad is from Canada and we always watched the Grey Cup on the CBC every year, with bonus attention paid when the Argos (the family team--my grandfather had season tix for years) were in it. So watching it now is nostalgic and entertaining.
Also, watching the CFL gives me a chance to enjoy watching lesser college players carve out a niche.
And hear Chris Cuthbert call a game. He's a brilliant announcer.
I've seen RUSH like 34 times and I'm a Maple Leafs fan.
I'm a wannabe Canadian as well.
I'm a maple syrup fan. Is that good enough? Can I join too?
