The Rouge, White & Blue CFL podcast welcomes co-host Joe Pritchard back to Canadian football land a half and a week after the man became a proud papa for the first time. So congratulations to him and let’s get on with the 2017 Grey Cup stuff.
RWB co-host Os Davis, in an informal bid to become the most ubiquitous US-based voice on the Grey Cup this week, sandwiches this podcast between the Grueling Truth’s post-divisionals show and our upcoming Grey Cup edition of the CFL Pick ‘em Show. Os is also happy to point out that he in fact predicted this very Calgary Stampeders-Toronto Argonauts matchup prior to the season:
…but i meant it for 2017.

Between the two, they go through it all, from past matchups in the Grey Cup to two rather unfortunate (for the Argonauts) regular-season meetings to playing out the scenario(s) in which Toronto might pull off an upset which would certainly be even more shocking than 2016’s result.
Name-dropping? You bet! The RWB talks Ricky Ray, Bo Levi Mitchell, Jerome Messam, S.J. Green, Marquay McDaniel, Anthony Coombs, Alex Singleton and of course James Wilder Jr. The X-Factor Extraordinaire – just how much does the fate of the Grey Cup depend on each of these individuals? And what will Mother Nature bring to the proceedings, for that matter…?
Hoo boy, are we excited. If you can sit still for long enough, listen in on the Rouge, White & Blue CFL Podcast before game time.
