Grey Cup Preview


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!


Her Royal Highness is cheering for the B.C. Lions, of course. Cats always stick together.

Games played outside in the snow/rain and on muddy fields just seem more 'fun' to me.......

Haha, love that pic of HRH! I heard on the news that they are, thankfully, not concerned about the crazies from last year spoiling things. Should draw a different kind of crowd.

Cats are notorious contrarians. The only solution is to name ALL the teams after cats.

The Vancouver police don't expect a riot. Football just doesn't light the old Canadian emotional BBQ the way hockey does, I guess!

I bet HRH is feeling all bad about her feline, um... team, playing in the cold.

Bird said...

Well, I must say I don't keep up with sports, though I used to watch hockey for a couple of years. :-) I hope the team you're rooting for wins big!
