Is the CFL blowing it by not playing at least one game on Canada Day. I know with it falling on a Wednesday this year it is a bit problematic scheduling wise, but it is just a shame IMO that from a sports perspective that the one team that seems to be building a successful relationship with Canada Day are the Blue Jays.
Blue Jays Canada Day games are fast becoming a tradition - at least here in Southern Ontario - with Rogers and the Jays successfully building that relationship. Their game this Canada Day has already been sold out for a couple of weeks now and hundreds of thousands of other sports fans across the country will be watching baseball on Canada Day.
I'm sure they will do their usual routine of having the team wear red Canada uniforms, the crowd will be decked out in red, they'll have members of the Canadian Military there rolling out the giant Canadian flag for the National Anthem.
Shouldn't the biggest all-Canadian league have some relationship with Canada Day?
Happy Canada Day!
