The 104th Grey Cup was held here in Toronto yesterday, at BMO field, home of the TFC, and all I can say was WOW.
The CFL may not be on the radar for everyone but this league knows how to put on an event, and both the Ottawa Redblacks’ players and the Calgary Stampeders players put on quite the show.
The game ended with the Redblacks winning their first championship since 1976 after a thrilling 39-33 OT win.
Unlike that championship game held south of the boarder, the Grey Cup games are usually quite exciting and a great showcase for the league and it never gets enough press or fanfare, which is sad.
Congratulations to the Redblacks and to the CFL for putting on a great event and for building a fast, skilled, talented league!
