As others I am a fan of many sports, football being one of them, so I do watch some NFL, and will be watching the SuperBowl. I don’t consider CFL to be the only game in town.
I can understand Barney’s frustration though. People at work who are not really football fans will get exited about the SuperBowl, but pay no attention to the CFL that is right in their own back yard.
Ultimately it’s their loss, and most educated fans know that the CFL has lots of excitement to offer.
I still remember when I was a kid (some 25-35 years ago), and we always got together with the neighbours to watch the Grey Cup, and we never even watched NFL football. The world has changed much since then, and I’m afraid marketting and advertising affects what a lot of people do, and how they perceive things.
As with every SuperBowl or Grey Cup, I will be hoping that the game is close, as it makes for much more excitement.
Enjoy the game!
