I watched some of the CFL playoffs Sunday.  I couldn't believe the decision by Edmonton to kick a field goal rather that go for it on a 3rd and 4 from the 12 yard line with less than 2:00 to play!  At the time, the Eskimos were down by 7 and seemingly had all the momentum going its way.  While the defense was able to stop Calgary on the Stampeders' next possession, Edmonton was forced to try and make big plays to win the contest with less than :40 on the clock.  The punt return by Edmonton was fumbled and lost, and the Stampeders prevailed, 32-28.  So, it's Calgary vs. Toronto for the 2017 Grey Cup, as the Argonauts rallied to win the Eastern Conference final against Saskatchewan, 25-21.  The game will be played Sunday in Ottawa.  The Grey Cup, for non-Canadian fans, is the oldest contested professional sports trophy in North America (began in 1901).
