3.5 Timeouts Tuesdays

100th Grey Cup edition, or why Canadian football is better than American football.

1.

Our big game.  We've had a hundred of them.  Americans are on... what? Thirty?  Forty?

2.

Our field is bigger and wider.  Bigger is better.

3.

Only three downs.  The lack of a fourth down combined with the wider and longer field favours a passing game, as oposed to handoff/handoff/ special team for third down and one etc.  (seriously- Americans pay some guy millions of bucks to run anairbag three feet.), which makes for a more exciting game.

3.5

We've been around longer.  The Toronto Argonauts wre founded in 1873, the oldest football team in the world.  So that means
