Winners in Winterpeg

With Grey Cup madness happening on top of the Santa Claus parade the city was buzzing today. It was also a sunny afternoon, which we haven’t seen much in a couple weeks.

The heavily favoured BC Lions beat the Alouettes 25-14 and the Grey Cup is coming back to the West Coast.

The Lions last won the league championship in 2000, defeating Montreal 28-26 in Calgary. The Lions have captured the trophy in four of the eight Grey Cup games in which they have played. [CTV]

Congrats to the BC Lions on a great season & on winning the Cup – let’s just think of this as a warm up to that other cup win this city is dying to celebrate…

Update: Added pic of decapitated Cup.

    It can’t be a good sign that almost as soon as they won the trophy, the Leos managed to break it in two.

    Congrats, Lions, on a spectacular finish to a great season. At least one of our teams is worth watching.

    Thems fightin’ words, Narvey! What about the Giants? Seems like we’re winners all-round ‘cept when it comes to the NHL… but that’s gonna change dammit! *sniff sniff*

    Once again, Narvey ignites controversy by giving the right-wing party line on a hot-button issue.

    Don’t you know it’s impolitic to question the Canucks? For heaven’s sake, they won their last start!
