From another forum from someone who bashes Canadian football and the CFL and longs for the NFL to come here. Have to admit, it is a bit humourous and not to be taken seriously really:
'Twas the night before Grey Cup, when all through the town
Every creature was stirring, acting the clown;
The banners were hung by the stadium with care,
In hopes that the Giants or the Colts soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Manning and Favre danced in their heads;
Mamma in her 'Jets top, and I in my Giants’cap,
Had just settled down for a short little nap,
When out in the street there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the couch to see what was the matter.
When, what to my wondering eyes was in store,
But the Bears front four and eight, no seven players more,
With a smaller ball, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it was my NFL pick.
More rapid, more quicker, filled with more game,
They whistled, and shouted, and called each by name;
"Now, Peyton! now, Tom! now, Ladanian and Bruschy!
On, Eli! on Keyshone! on, Terrell and Tiki !
To the top of the standings! to the top of the field!
Their names as the best is all but sealed!"
So talk of the Grey Cup amongst the few ,
Really is silly and a pile of doo-doo.
