Thanks to our team's pathetic display of football over the past...uhh, 3 years or so, I believe the Ticats owe Damon and the Argos an apology for making what should've been an amazing celebration of CFL football, into a ho-hum after thought.
Think of it...if we had even a remotely competitive team, it would've been a lock to have 35,000 at the Dome today.
However, a mere 26-and-change bothered to attend one of the greatest rivalries in all of sport, and an honouring of one of the greatest athletes in pro-sports history.
I have to figure that many Argonaut fans who saw the Labour Day debacle decided to hang on to their pennies as well...and wait for a more qualified opponent to come to town.
I guess, if there's any consolation, Toronto fans got a pretty good taste of NFL football today. Lotsa running, lotsa defence, mediocre quarterbacking, absence of passing, and premium on scoring.
Regardless, this could've been a great day for CFL football.
