We are less than a week away from the 99th Grey Cup. Let’s just hope that the divisional finals aren’t an indication of what we can expect from the big game because in terms of excitement they were severely lacking.
I wonder how long before the league just does away with the East Final and East Semi. Only once in the past 6 years has the 1st place team in the East not ended up playing in the Grey Cup... and in most cases the challengers haven’t even come close. That was certainly the case for the Ti-Cats who might as well just had their defenders stay out and play offense for how useful the offense was. Hell Winnipeg could have dressed no one but Chris Garrett and Jason Vega (that offense powerhouse) and still embarrassed the Ti-Cats. It really makes me wonder how the hell this team managed 50 points just 7 days ago.
As for the other game, BC is just that good, plain and simple. Lulay made a Rich Stubler defense look like it had never heard of the hard count before. Based on how that game went I’m not sure a healthy Jerome Messam would have changed much about that outcome. As I said before, this is BC’s Grey Cup to lose.
I’ll be back later in the week with my thoughts on the big game. Also voting will start shortly for the Fans Choice Douche Bag of the Year so be sure to suggest worthy nominees.
Speaking of voting don’t forget to vote for me in for Best Canadian Sports Blog of the Year.
