After a couple of games with somewhat surprising and definitely emphatic results, it’ll be the Calgary Stampeders against the Ottawa RedBlacks in the 2016 Grey Cup final. Rouge, White & Blue CFL Podcast co-hosts Os Davis and Joe Pritchard keep it relatively brief this week, in no small part due to the fact that Joe will be attending the big game in Toronto this weekend.

What did Joe love most about the divisional finals over the weekend? Well, because he’s a masochistic toughened Wisconsinite, he dug on the flying snow of the Edmonton Eskimos-Ottawa RedBlacks game and fears not the possibility of freezing rain in Toronto for the Grey Cup. Joe will be in attendance at the ‘Cup and hoo boy is Os jealous – even if such a trip would mean changing out a glorious Orange County weekend for Canadian climes…

In this episode of the Rouge, White & Blue, Os and Joe peer through the crystal ball to divine the outcome of this Grey Cup; though all signs point to a decisive Calagary win, we’ll wait and see whether the Year Of The Upset is being observed north of the border.

Os Davis has been a sportswriter for [redacted] years, covering and enjoying way too much pro football (American and Canadian), basketball (NBA and international), World Cup soccer and cricket in turn. Basically, if it's a ball game and Os has a forum, he'll write about it. Os is of the opinion that advanced stastical metrics are awesome, that the addition of offensive lines to fantasy football is absolutely necessary and that the Los Angeles Lakers shall rise again. He is firmly against price-gouging of fans, Americans pooh-poohing CFL football and that @#@#$@#$ing Washington football team's name. Os currently appears on way too many podcasts, co-hosting the Rouge, White & Blue Fantasy Football Podcast, The Truth About Fantasy Football Podcast, the CFL Weekly Pick 'Em Show and the L.A. Rams 2.0 Weekly Show -- plus often the NFL Weekly Pick 'Em Show.
