Random Grey Cup Thought

One nice thing about relatively simple sports like hockey and soccer: Your team may lose, but it's unlikely to lose because your star player doesn't know the rules of the game he's been playing all his life.

I guess that in the heat of the moment you forget these things, and it's not like the situation arises very often, and Calvillo showed some class, admitting his 'dumb mistake' after the game, but still: the thing which really makes football football, and not say, rugby, is that you are allowed one forward pass. Not two, one.

Great game though.

    Pure panic, man.
