Let's not tell anyone on the team this, but 2009 is NOT the end of the decade.
Quoting from Wikepedia,
Anno Domini (sometimes found in the irregular form Anno Domine), abbreviated as AD or A.D., and Before Christ, abbreviated as BC or B.C., are designations used to number years in the Julian and Gregorian calendars. The calendar era to which they refer is based on the traditionally reckoned year of the conception or birth of Jesus, with AD denoting years after the start of this epoch, and BC denoting years before the start of this epoch. There is no year zero in this scheme, so the year AD 1 immediately follows the year 1 BC.
So essentially, year 10 was the last year of the first decade, soooooooooo, 2010 is the last year of the decade
Accordingly, like 1998 and 1999, We've still got 2 cracks at ithe GREY CUP this decade.
THAT ALSO MEANS that the whole Y2K thing was wrong, and we started the 21st century, Jan 1 2001!!!!!
If you think the playbook can look complex, read on in wikepedia about how in history people grappled with the issue of the calendar and time.... no wonder I'm late for many things... :lol: :lol: :lol:
So anyway, we've got to think differently about this decade thing.... not that anyone in the club wants to even talk about it..... There are soooo many superstitions!!!
I PICKED THE TOPIC..
