TORONTO – Celebrating their 150th anniversary, the Toronto Argonauts got much more than the gift of a win.

Pinball sure looks good for 150 years old.
Yup and in a city of over a million people they still can’t put more than 10,000 people in the stands. Torontonians don’t give a damn about the Argos.
This has been an ongoing debate in the CFL since the Argos glory years of the 60s 70s and early 80s. When, ironically, the team had not won a Grey Cup since 1952. Now they seem to win the championship roughly every 5 years (and possibly sooner in 2023), but attendance remains stagnant. (Attendance at the 150th Anniversary game was announced at around 14,000.)
