(God I remember that year/Grey Cup. The "Frito Ray" narrative was everywhere. Because in 2002, he was working as a delivery driver for Frito-Lay chips.

I love the CFL.)

The coverage of that interception was so weird. Why did the Argos player get up and run it out? Why did the TSN cameras cut to the sidelines (where you could see players running onto the field with the clock running) while the play was still going?

I've always been treated well in Edmonton and have always figured it was because people there can sense that i was at the 96 Grey Cup.

if there's one thing i've learned from watching sports with my old man it's that you pick one guy at the start of the game and never let up taunting him all night

we watched the Grey Cup together last night and he was relentless toward Bo-Levi Mitchell - i guess big time players get big time taunts in big time games

whenever calgary would make a nice play he'd stand up and throw his hands up in the air and yell "IT'S FIXED! WHAT A JOKE! JUST GIVE THEM THE CUP ALREADY!"

or

"HERE'S YOUR GREY CUP BO-LEVI" in a sarcastic "nyeh nyeh nyeh" snivelling kind of whiny little kid voice

(here he'd stand up and make nonsensical hand gestures that I think were meant to approximate a loyal servant handing a king or queen their crown, i guess representing the Grey Cup being gifted to Mitchell, never did get clarification on this one)

conversely, whenever Toronto would make a good play (on offence or defence) he'd stand up and yell "HAHAHA MITCHELL TAKE THAT!" or "YOU'RE THE MAN BO-LEVI!" despite Mitchell not being involved in the play or even on the field at the time

after the game ended and he calmed down and all the Argos were being interviewed and celebrating he kept yelling in a controlled but firm manner "SHOW ME MITCHELL" or "WHERE'S BO-LEVI?" or "HOW'S THAT FEEL BO-LEVI, YOU EGOMANIAC"

this went on and on for like 20 minutes after the game ended, long after Mitchell and the Stamps were in the dressing room

even i found this a bit grating so i finally said "i don't think we're gonna see Mitchell for a while, Stamps are in the dressing room and they're gonna do the Grey Cup presentation"

and he looked me square in the eyes and yelled "WHADDYA THINK MITCHELL, DID THE BEST TEAM WIN TODAY?"

at one point my sister said:

"dad why do you care so much? i thought people in calgary like the CFL more than Toronto anyway..."

and he yelled "LET THEM SUFFER"

Portland has this little turd named Brandon Leipsic playing for them

my old man and i hate this kid - we've taunted him all over the country - Moose Jaw, Saskatoon, Edmonton etc. and he was in fine form last night

for those of you who don't know he is basically a Matt Cooke prototype in Bud Bundy's body - kid looks like he's 2 feet tall and just dirty as fuck, always has been - and always yapping at the refs, crying after every shift and then spearing, headshots etc. - just an absolute turd

anyways we were relentless on this kid last night, here's a recap of some of the chicken man's greatest quips

we'd been on Leipsic a lot for the first half of the game and as the OIL KANGS took over the game he lost his cool as usual, taking a natural hat trick of 3 consecutive cheap shot penalties at one point, the whole crowd was livid but he was especially fired up

"LEIPSIC YOU'RE A STAR TONIGHT!"

"LOTTA SCOUTS WATCHING YOU TONIGHT BRANDON!"

"NICE BACKCHECKING LEIPSIC"

"NICE HANDS LEIPSIC"

"GIVE THAT LITTLE SHIT A PHONEBOOK TO SIT ON IN THE PENALTY BOX"

"YOU'RE A LITTLE PRINCE LEIPSIC - YOU'RE MY LITTLE PRINCE!"

has Bo-Levy ever done anything to suggest he's an egomaniac or is it just a fair assumption based on his name and his way of carrying himself?

anyway thanks for the recap, LET THEM SUFFER is pretty great.

The like farm to table charcuterie places that have opened in Hamilton since rich people started living there get their windows smashed by anarchists and the buses that the city business development or whatever dept charter to show off Hamilton office space to like mobile gaming company CEOs get followed around and harrassed by anti poverty activists. Hamilton is our last hope. Welcome to the party Johnny Manziel.

Week 1 bye is something that happens when you have a 9 team league.
