I spent a little time switching between the Green Bay/ NY Giants, a major NFL matchup game and Calgary/ Toronto.. but finally left it on the latter.. even a lacklustre Grey Cup game, which is a rarity.. had it over the premier matchup in the NFL last weekend.
I've had conversations with Americans, who can't understand why we don't go to 4 downs... "isn't it pass, pass, kick the whole game" they ask.... i respond that it doesn't work out that way.. it's a much more complex, spontaneous and free form game than the American version.
But they don't get it... hope we don't ever change.. it'd just make us a NFL minor league.
Congrats to the Toronto Argonauts.. although i've moved away.. i still think they have the best name, colours (dbl blue, navy for Oxford, powder for Cambridge) and logo (galleon.. pull together) in North American Sports.
If they moved out of that damned Rogers Centre.. into an outdoor, natural turf venue downtown.. like Montreal did, back to its roots in Molson Stadium.. that'd cinch their future in T.O... i think.
