Argos 27, Tiger-Cats 17

Watching that first pre-season game, Damon Allen looked like our only hope for success and Spergon Wynn looked horrible.  Apparently, Wynn's got some win in him because he threw two touchdown passes in a big Argonaut win when it matters.  When it didn't matter in the pre-season, Hamilton beat us

Unparalleled Argo Buzz

I've lived in this city for 31 years and I've never felt this type of buzz for our football team.  The closest was probably when we signed Rocket Ismael out of Notre Dame, but it wasn't quite like this Ricky Williams vibe that's gripping Toronto right now.  This is just

Ricky Williams Signs With The Argos

The Toronto Argonauts have signed suspended Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams.  The lingering issues have been ironed out and the Dolphins have given their blessing.  He will reportedly earn around $250,000, easily making him the highest-paid running back in the league. I love this move.  It will be

Oh Ricky, You're So Fine...

We've been preparing for the big Ricky Williams signing here in Toronto for a week now.  There are loads of conflicting reports out there, but the fact is Williams has been in Toronto all week and he visited with the Argonauts yesterday, even watching a practice from afar. If it

Ricky Williams An Argo?

If you believe this article on SI.com, Ricky Williams could very well be a Toronto Argonaut as soon as Monday.  Apparently, the Miami Dolphins are set to give the suspended running back permission to sign a one-year deal with the Argos on the understanding that he would be released

For Sale

I hate reading stories like this.  According to the Toronto Star, the CFL is discussing the concept of selling the naming rights to the Grey Cup.  Our sacred Grey Cup, apparently, is for sale. I'll be outraged if it becomes the Molson Grey Cup, Tim Hortons Grey Cup or RBC

Grey Cup Ratings

If you're curious how many Canadians tuned into the Toronto Argonauts Grey Cup victory over the BC Lions on Sunday, Nielsen Media Research has the answer.  They're reporting that an average of 4,012,000 viewers per minute tuned in, the second highest rated Grey Cup in the past decade.

Champions

I'm part of the CFL's lost generation.  Coming of age in the 80s, we were sold the glitz and glamour of the NFL, primarily from the Buffalo television stations we received.  The Bills propaganda machine rolled on through the 90s when they went to four Super Bowls in a row.

The Grey Cup

There's little more Canadian than the Grey Cup.  Lord Earl Grey donated the trophy to recognize the top amateur rugby football team in Canada and the University of Toronto Varsity Blues won the first one way back in 1909.  The Toronto Argonauts won their first one in 1914 but I'm

Argooooooos!

Remember what happened last year when the Argos went into Montreal for the East Division Championship?  That's not going to happen this time.  This time, it will be different. Despite the fact the Argonauts haven't defeated the Alouettes in an East Championship played in Montreal since 1946, I'm feeling good

Argooooooos!

I'm a big fan of the CFL's second season.  Come playoff time, I jump on the Argonaut bandwagon and begin to dream in grey.  The Argos finished second in the East this season and host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the East semifinal tonight at Skydome. We've owned the Ti-Cats this

York University announced today that an agreement has been reached for the construction of a new 25,000-seat stadium on the York University Keele campus. The stadium will be the new home of the Toronto Argonauts and a world-class venue for Canadian soccer, and will host the FIFA Men's Under-20

Arrrggooooos!!!

The CFL season has kicked off and the Toronto Argonauts are already 1-0 after beating the visiting Saskatchewan Roughriders 21-10.  I'm not the world's biggest CFL fan but I'm glad the league exists and I wish our Argos well each season.  I'll even watch an Argos game on television if
