Grey Cup Prediction
As of this morning the British Columbia Lions are favoured by seven points to kick the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' ass in Sunday's Grey Cup. The same Winnipeg Blue Bombers who twice kicked the Lion's ass during the regular season.
(I know most of you foreigners, who do not smoke dope, who read this, must wonder where the fuck British Columbia is. We are the people who riot two out of every three times our hockey team loses the Stanley Cup Final, not counting the Vancouver Millionaire losses (and one win!) in the early decades of the last century, long before television and other anti-social media made rioting fashionable. Winnipeg is located on the southern tip of the Manitoba Polar Bear Reserve. No one knows if Winnipeggers will riot if they ever get to lose the Stanley Cup Final. We do, however, have our suspicions.)
I am cheering for the Lions. A man has to have one home team to cheer for. Used to watch them practice with Strangler back when I lived near their training facility in deepest, darkest Sliverville. In those days there were few people who could pound Bud like me. Those few people were all B.C. Lions. But my money is on the Bombers beating that seven point spread. Would not surprise me to see the Bombers win the game outright. Their success will depend on one thing: beating quarterback Travis Lulay within an inch of his life. Something they are more than capable of.
I am also going to go out on limb and predict a perilously drunk Calgary Stampeder fan will ride a horse through the remnants of Occupy Vancouver before Grey Cup Week is over.
