We got a good snow game on TV

EDMONTON VS OTTAWWAH

Is that an Apatosaurus skeleton in the background?

Hurling is some good shit as well. Makes me wish I lived in Ireland.
Yassssss.

I went to a hurling match in Dublin during the Gaelic Games. That was some good shit.

The iconic 'alien' is to us what we are to apes: small, pale, big headed, and with unfathomable technology. We even abduct them for medical experiments. Mind blown.

I was in...Sang Bang...Dang Gong...I was all over the place, a lot of places. I was with the Green Berets, Special Unit Battalions... Commando Airborne Tactics...Specialist Tactics Unit Battalion. Yeah, it was real hush hush. I was Agent Orange, Special Agent Orange, that was me.

I remember when Mitch Mustain was picked up by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and we were going to spend two weeks on Lake Champlain a mile from the Canadian border.  I checked on tickets to their game with Montreal (hour drive), but Mustain was canned 10 days later.

The referee in this game has the most stereotypical Canadian accent ever.

I like how you can challenge so-called "judgment calls" that aren't reviewable in American football.

Seriously, this is a part of the game that's better in the CFL. It's been an entertaining game in the second half.

"Judgment calls" are the ones the officials usually screw up the worst, and they generally can't be fixed through review. 

Looks like Ottawa's gonna win this one.

I haven't paid attention to the CFL in years but I would watch it occasionally on TV as kid and was confused by the Edmonton Eskimos looking like the Packers. I rooted for the Blue Bombers as Matt Dunnigan played college ball in my hometown.

That was the best onside kick!  Just pop it straight up in the air and have a jump ball.

I saw the tail end of that replay and that PI call was bs.

Talk about being out of touch. I thought Ottawa was the Roughriders. Turns out that was 20 years ago.

Is Toronto still the Argofuckyourselves?

You pick the one right tool.

And here I thought Chris Farley was dead.

Ottawa had the Rough Riders from 1876-1996, then the Renegades from 2002-2006, and now the Redblacks since 2014.

And yes, the team in Toronto is still the Toronto Argonauts.

That turned into quite a game. 

I was right about Ottawa winning, but sure didn't see that game going to OT.

God, Canada looks like a cold place.  It's actually about 45 degrees at this game, but everything in Calgary is already covered in a layer of snow.
