    Two former Bears suiting up tomorrow for Hamilton: Andy Fantuz who stopped by training camp in Chicago for a cup of coffee and Henry Burris (yes, he's still playing).

    It'll be a cold one, played on a frozen turf in Saskatchewan against the home team so I expect a noisy, low scoring, slip and slide affair.

    It'll be shown in the U.S. on NBC Sports Network at 6 PM EST. Probably be on ESPN3 as well.

    Yup, via NBC Sports Network and ESPN3. NBC Sports Network carried 14 regular season games plus playoffs as well. NFL Network used to carry it.

    And you will see the craziest fans (rider nation) in any sport. 44,000 inbred half naked with watermellons on thier heads. This could be the best ever.

    Just because you are inbred does not mean you can't have a sense of fashion!

    Games are available after the fact on TSN video on demand. Here's last week's Western Final played under cold conditions. Even the TV camera's autofocus had issues with the cold. Both teams started slow. but adapted. I'd expect the Grey Cup to look much the same in terms of conditions.

    Just before the half at around the 3 minute mark we get to see the half nekkid inbreds in the stands.

    Sunday was a bummer all round with Hamilton getting blown out in the Grey Cup and Bears getting blown out by a similar score. In the "pass happy" CFL, the Riders rang up 268 yards on the ground and another 245 in the air while poor Hank kept overthrowing receivers in the first half. Austin will have to run him around the stadium a few times before the game starts, just to wear him down a bit. What's the bet the rest of the CFL will run the ball more than the NFL, next year.

    Oh well, there's always next year . . .

    Bears should bring in Alex Hall next year.

    How about the entire Rider D? Certainly wouldn't do any worse.

    I think you could have brought in the patriots and the riders would have destroyed them to, nobody was going to beat these guys yesterday. Time for hank to ride off into the sunset and we start building a new QB. I don't know if lefevour is the guy, but we need to start building a new QB .

    My bad. I was studying the school books more than the playbook.

    Oh shoot, forgot about him. The Ti-cats used a three QB package that Dan featured in, to get to the Grey Cup. then once there they forgot about him like I just did.
