I think B.C. will be victorious this year. I hate Montreal, the Canadians, the Alouettes and the Expo's when they were around are all my least favorite teams. So, I'll be going for B.C. tomorrow night!

I'm going to have to go with B.C. on this one. Being from Calgary, I gotta support Buono and Dickenson. Dickenson deserves it! If Calvillo can only do it once out of five, just give it to Dickenson already!


Shut up and calculate.

At least one pro football team named the Lions (B.C.) is having a decent year. Isn't starting a football game at 5pm local time in Winnipeg this time of year just a little chilly?

That's the point, Grey cup games are best enjoyed in glorious fall weather. I can live with cold and dry (2002 Edmonton) over cold and wet (1982 Toronto CNE), and BTW indoor stadiums should be outlawed.
WX report for YWG-Sunny with cloudy periods. Wind north 20 km/h becoming light this afternoon. High plus 1. A great day for a football game.
BC will win by 17.
One of these days the Canadian Rugby Union is going to claim our cup back and the CFL will have to find it's own.

I'll be at the Grey Cup later today. Really looking forward to it.

Now that the Bombers are out, I have no choice but the cheer for the LIONS!

Oh...as for the cold- SUCK IT UP! Actually...right now we're sitting at about 0 degrees here in Winnipeg, and should be at about -5 for kickoff with light winds. It won't be too bad.

And I'm assuming there are still tickets left? These days, not even a CHAMPIONSHIP game can draw a sellout crowd...

The winner is:
WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Paul McCallum kicked a Grey Cup record-tying six field goals, and the British Columbia Lions defeated the Montreal Alouettes 25-14 to win the Canadian Football League championship on Sunday night.


Ian Smart scored a touchdown for the Lions, who had the best regular-season record and won their fifth Grey Cup. It is their first title since beating Montreal in 2000.

"I can't even describe it, it just feels so good," said Lions receiver Geroy Simon, the CFL's most outstanding player. "They did a great job of covering me, but we knew our big guys were going to step up and make some plays."

Lions quarterback Dave Dickenson was chosen as the game's outstanding player after going 18-for-129 yards for 184 yards. He also ran for 53.

"I was going to do what it takes," he said. "We just feel we deserved it. We were the best team all year. In my opinion, the best team won."

The Lions celebrated hard, splitting the Grey Cup after it was presented to them at midfield.

Actually it had been sold out for a few days before tonight. There wasn't an empty seat left in the house.

Yea the Leos did it! great game, Lions totally out played the A's, although there was a bit of a scare at teh begining of the 2nd half. Turning point was deffanitly the Leos stuffing Montreals offense on the 1 yard line causing the fumble.

Went on vacation with Wally Buono last winter, and I sure hope he enjoys his time in Italy this off season, he deserves it.



Meet you at the Ol' Yacht club for a pint.

I'm Happy.

I won $100.00 on a local pool.

The West won plus I got a hundred bucks.

What a simple life I lead ?
