Boggles my mind too. What gets me is the NFLer's who have a mind that is nailed shut, dis the CFL on a conditional basis and will never admit to anything positive about the League.
I am not against the NFL but I think some folks are fools, blinded by expert marketing and peer pressure in some instances. I have always been a big fan of this league and I always will. I grew up with it and have had no desire to ever abandon it for the NFL. No sport is perfect, no league is perfect. But as for me I will always have a place in my heart for the CFL.
For the record, the Grey Cup is one trophy that can still give me goose bumps. I held it once, hoisted it over my head and I will never forget that moment, checking out all the engravings, kissing it (yeah, I admit that) and remembering great Cup games as I felt that Cup in my hands. I like hockey but if you give me a choice between holding the Stanley Cup or the Grey Cup in my arms it is the Grey Cup--no debate.
BTW, I saw a restaurant in my area with this sign displayed: Gray Cup Party Here! Gee, what idiots.
