What has single points, 3 downs, 12 players, and a 110X65 yard field? Canadian Football! The 89th championship Grey Cup/la coupe Grey will be played tomorrow, Sunday November 25. The Calgary Stampeders kick off against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Montreal's Olympic Stadium (6:00 p.m. EST, 3:00 p.m. PST). The Canadian Broadcasting Company will carry the game, as will America One and some Fox Sports Network cable channels in the United States.
