What is a Girl to Do?

Saskatchewan vs Winnipeg in the Grey Cup! It will take the wisdom of Solomon to decide who to cheer for. I was born in Saskatoon and raised cheering for the green roughies. But we moved to Winnipeg when I was eight and my first live game was the Bombers. I love both teams. All I know for sure is that next Sunday, whoever wins, I'm going to be a happy, happy camper! Too bad the game is being played in Toronto...oh well, I guess there can't be perfection this side of the Jordan.

To quote a CBC reporter: "It's an absolute catastrophe for the CFL that Toronto's not in the Grey Cup."

Just goes to show you can't always trust the CBC to know their blow hole from a hole in the ground.

I've lived in Southern Ontario and I grew up in the west. Hamilton fans care about their team. Westerners care about their teams and Saskatchewan fans make a religion of their team. Torontonians care only if their team is doing well and it is sexy for them to do so. Toronto has a corporate culture where there must be an economic benefit to caring about anything...at least when it comes to sports. Maybe Toronto has a soul when it comes to other things. On this point I will remain agnostic.

With Glenn out with a broken arm, the Riders will be the favourite to win...I suppose you could choose them. I am having trouble picking a team as well, but am amped that it's 2 prairie teams playing for the cup this year! I spent alll day yesterday watching football (both finals) and hockey (Flames-Canucks. don't want to talk about that one)...can't wait for Grey Cup Sunday!!!
