Hello Sporting types;
This weekend is, or has been great so far for watching great
sporting events, and even in Canada things have picked up
starting yesterday, with the two <2> best University teams
meeting here in Toronto to play for the Vanier Cup. Please
note that they are playing the American type "push n shove"
that they call "football"...more like handball.
Earlier that day, I was rewarded with a Rugby game from
New Zealand between a local team and a Canadian Team and
wow wow that was flowing and exciting, and even the
stadium they played in looked like one from a movie in
it's quaintness, and old style look from the 20s, with no
real stands but minium and a railed fence with fans just
having a good time. Lighting was "ok" but the steam
in the cold coming from the players and caught by the
lighting system, was rather a neat touch too.
Tomorrow is the 100th Grey Cup ... "push n shove" so I
hope I can find another rugby match or some real football
say a World Cup Qualifier.

PS: I hope the Toronto Argonauts can win this Grey Cup!
