Argos Section 122

 Hey everyone!

Getting excited for game and thinking about joining us in Section 122? That sounds really cool! Let’s go to the interweb and check out the possible seats that are left for you to choose from. Maybe if your lucky you can sit beside Paully.

 

Too late!

Too late!

What no seats left!

Too bad but there’s always 123 (yeah I know it’s not the same but don’t let them know that)!

Hamilton Tiger Cats Math = Grey Cups?

So I was on the Ti-Cats website checking out the various pages (Cheerleaders + Lauren = Awesome) and I noticed that they “claim” to have won the Grey Cup 15 times. Conventional wisdom is that the Toronto Argonauts have won the most championship so I pulled up a previous Grey Cup winner’s webpage to see how this was possible. It appears with a little bit of “Hamilton Math” they were able to justifiably claim the 15 titles. So what happens to the rest of the teams if we use Hamilton Math to determine Cup winners? Well let’s find out!

Ti-Cats Brain Trust!

Ti-Cats Brain Trust!

According to Hamilton Math the Ti-Cats get credit for any winner that came out of Hamilton. So if we do the same with Toronto teams they get 7 more championships. Cool!

Next we need to deal with defunct teams in Ontario that Hamilton didn’t bother to take credit for. Looks like those go to the Argos as well – chalk up 5 more wins please.

What about Ottawa? No problem! Regina and Ottawa had/have teams with the same name. Looks like 10 more for the Riders. Welcome to 13 wins (Yeah I threw in the 2 Senators Cups. I mean what the hell.)

Hey, Toronto and BC currently have the same ownership group. I guess we get theirs and they get ours! That’s 6 more to Toronto and 16 more for BC. Congrats BC can’t wait to see the rings!

What to do about Baltimore? They became Montreal but were in a different country at the time hmmmmm….. what would Hamilton do? If you guessed Montreal gets half a win and Calgary gets the other half you would be right. Looks like there were no rings that year just a pair of ear rings.Calgary you now have 6.5 Cups and Montreal 8.5 (Yes, Hamilton Math also dictates that the Als get the 1931 cup even though they didn’t exist until 1946!).

Edmonton stays put at 13 wins and Winnipeg at 10 to close out the winners.

OK. Now for the final tabulation of Grey Cup wins according to Hamilton Math.

Toronto = 34

BC = 22

Hamilton = 15

Saskatchewan = 13

Edmonton = 13

Winnipeg = 10

Montreal = 8.5

Calgary = 6.5

Navy = 1

Want the final wonder of Hamilton Math! Last year was the celebration of the 100th Grey Cup but if you use Hamilton’s calculations there have been 123 winners! Simply amazing!! These poeople need to be in politics or a nut house.

P.S.: All totals listed here are only real in Hamilton. The same as pink elephants and flying pigs.

 

Grey Cup Party Pix

Most of the Argos End Zone attended last weeks Argonauts Grey Cup party at Shoeless Joe’s. A foursome of pix from that event:

Riderville 2012

When the Argos End Zone Crew aren’t out hobnobbing with the local society hags we like to mingle with fellow End Zoners. This being the Grey Cup and the crew being at Riderville it was an excellent opportunity to see how other CFL fans like to celebrate the Grey Cup.

Some people like to get drunk and run a savage burn on the locals. Remember Riderville loves a drunk but never burn the locals. These people didn’t follow the rules!  

Now look how we do it in the Argos End Zone. Make light conversation, find talking points, and lull them into a false sense of security. Look here – see Bill chatting with Rider and Stamps fans. Good work Bill! Argo’s Cheerleaders notice the 2013 calendar under Bill’s arm – yup we’re always pushing the brand.

    

Fred goes one step further than anyone expected and lays down a full horse whisper routine. Amazing Fred. You should have your own reality TV show and a national charity. We just need to find you a B list celebrity to promote your cause.

Can you spot the ultimate Rider fan? I can. 

All and all not a bad time spent by the End Zone Crew in Riderville and we have learned a very important lesson from our western friends. The Roughriders may a lose the game but they have never lost a party. Words that your Argos End Zone will try to live by.

Section 122-123 Ride the Rail! 

P.S.: We met a lot of Argo’s fans over the weekend including fellow 122’ers who were at Riderville. I did get pictures however they did not transfer over from the phone properly and were lost. I promise if you guys (and you know who you are) are in the End Zone next year I’ll do a write-up about your group.
