CFL Pass

Another Argos home game moved as Blue Jays advance

I’ve been quick to praise the Toronto Argonauts for the way they’ve handled adversity this season, but things are about to get taken to an entirely different level: Today’s game with the Calgary Stampeders is hosted at Tim Horton’s Field, and now it’s been confirmed that next Friday’s game has been moved as well.

The Argos are the nomads of the CFL this season because of the success of the Toronto Blue Jays. The Jays haven’t been in the postseason since 1993 so Argo fans haven’t had to worry about the availability of Rogers Centre for a long, long time. (Incidentally, the Blue Jays have been overcoming some adversity of their own in erasing a 2-0 series deficit in the ALDS; now they’re down in the ALCS following a 5-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals.)

Canada is going crazy for this team and it looks like CFL players, Canadian *and* American, are getting swept up in the fun.

I’d better see some Argo players flip the ball just like Joey Bats flipped the bat…
