Soccer...Andy, I should slap you for that, but I suspect its the reaction you're looking for. Its not the Montreal Alouettes.

Just trying to get your goat, Alix. I don't have a clue. I probably can't name three CFL teams.

Was it Doug Flutie's team?

I love you guys, you never fail to be brats!

The fact remains that you are stumped. Ha. There are only 8 CFL teams so it shouldn't be too hard to at least guess. You're down to 7 since we've eliminated Montreal. Its not an Eastern team.

Do I have to know the team name or can I just see how many names of Canadian cities I can come up with?

Team name please. It shouldn't be too tough. If you have to Google, go for it.

Victoria?
Vancover?
Saskatchewan (did I get even close to spelling that right?)?
Ummm, London, Toronto, Windsor, Ottowa, Timmins? Or is Ontario considered in the east?

I admit, I never really payed attention in geography, US, Canadian or other. I always figured that's why we had maps and atlases.

No to all of those. LOL. I knew this would be tough for you guys down south, but I figured a few Canadians might weigh in on this thread.

And you spelled it right. Good job! That's on our Citizenship test. If you want to become Canadian you need to be able to spell Saskatchewan and Nunuvut without making a mistake.
