Yesterday was the Grey Cup, apparently, and the Toronto Argonauts won in a close 24-23 upset against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Congratulations, Argos!

To be honest, I had no idea that the Grey Cup was on yesterday. When I saw news about it on twitter, it was more of a reminder that the Grey Cup even existed than anything. I have nothing against the CFL, to be clear, it’s just surprising that I’d be aware of the Grey Cup at all. But here’s the thing: The Argos are an MLSE Franchise. And that means...

Quite the Grey Cup final tonight too.
In hockey news, the Canadian Womens’ team faced off against the US for the third game in this year’s Rivalry Series — in front of a record-breaking crowd!

Unfortunately, the game did not go well for Canada, as Hillary Knight scored two goals en route to a 4-2 win for the US team and a 3-0 lead in the series so far. Their next game is set for December 15th.

The Marlies played last night as well, in their second game of a back to back against the Abbotsford Canucks. The Marlies took the first game 5-3 on Saturday, but lost last night by a score of 3-2. SDA assisted Gaudette’s 2-2 goal, and almost got an end to end beauty to tie it late in the game, but he couldn’t quite finish.
