Champions!

Because I know you are all big Canadian Football League fans, and because mostly I want to rub it in the faces of all the other Canadian posters on this site.... ....my life is now complete.
The Edmonton Eskimos are the 2005 Grey Cup champions!

If they ran around the track in pads and hit each other, then it might be a sport.

Grace, you can't see their cute bootys in NASCAR either.

It was quite a game yesterday folks, poor Ken nearly had a coronary in OT though!

Not a LOT different. Bigger field, only 3 downs and likely some other important thing I am forgetting. It was pretty cool last night though!

Some rules are different....but basically, football is football.
There are three downs instead of four, which makes passing much more prevalent than in the NFL. The field is ten yards longer, the field is wider and the endzones are much larger. There's also an extra player on the field. There are other differences ...such as allowing more motion before the ball is snapped...and single points are awarded for kicking the ball through the endzone.
Texasgirl, you might be interested in knowing that our top receiver ranches in Texas during the off season. Jason Tucker also used to play for the Cowboys.

You know, who really wants to see people's bootys???? Some benefits of NASCAR are that 2 of the drivers are from Texas, you can watch great commercials and you can see their cars unlike football.

I thought the commercials were what folks really liked about the Superbowl?

Darn good thing you can't see cars in football. That would make for really painful tackles!

In one commercial Dale Jr. plays football in his car!!!!!!!!!! They do not show that commercial anymore!!!!!! Also in the Super bowl you only get to see commercials once a year. With NASCAR you get to see commercials about 36 times a year!!!!
