It's Grey Cup weekend again! This Sunday, the championship game of the Canadian Football League will be fought between the British Columbia Lions (Western Division champions) and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (Eastern Division champions). And this year the lucky buggers won't even have to freeze outdoors in the snow because the game is in balmy Vancouver's domed stadium.
I usually cheer for the West but this year I must cheer for my old home town of Winnipeg. The Peg is actually a Western Canadian city but it has been placed in the CFL Eastern Division so that both Divisions have an even number of teams.
The Blue Bombers have not won the Grey Cup since 1990, which is the longest drought for any team in the CFL. Another good reason why Winnipeg deserves to win! Go Bombers Go!
