What you might have missed while trying to stay awake during the Grey Cup:
Lame and lamer. As in, what was more mystifying: That "Santa believes in the Ottawa Renegades" sign that trailed the Grey Cup to the sidelines, or Jim Popp, limp-wristing a replay challenge in the closing minutes that was his last chance at breathing some into the Als cadaver. As for the sign, any ideas are welcome. As it turned out, it held together better than the Coupe.
I was going to wrap up more of the pigskin freakout weekend, but Damien kinda covered that off. Good on him for it, too, because it's that TSN Top 50 CFL list that came out Friday night that you might have missed. Specifically, Doug Flutie. With the other news going in that Pinball Clemons would indeed be back to coach the Argos - and the tone of his comments sure sounded like a guy planning to give it just one more season, then retire to a life of being president and Mr. Argo - how about this pitch: Flutie to the Argos, taking over the vacant offensive co-ord job as a prelude to head coach in '08?
If ever any game looked like it could use a do-over, it was OSU-Michigan.
