Less than 24 hours after the CFL’s divisional finals, I heard it.
A percentage of fans are grumbling that Calgary and Ottawa will play for the Grey Cup.
The same old, same old (it’s important to consider that most of those I heard from were Rider fans).
However, the story lines for this game are just as good as they are every other year.
While Calgary led the West Division race wire-to-wire, the Stampeders lost three of their last four regular season games. While they have proven that they can be a threat in the West Final, they can be beaten.
Which team shows up on game day?
You have to tip your cap to the Ottawa RedBlacks front office. This will be the team’s third Grey Cup appearance in five years of existence.
Trevor Harris was a back up for Ricky Ray in 2012, and was second on the depth chart behind Henry Burris in 2016. Now he gets the chance to prove that he is a championship-calibre quarterback.
I’ll be glad to set aside three hours of time on Sunday for this.
