The coming of the new year tends to inspire feelings of reflection, of looking back on the year that has passed. And so, as someone who spent part of that year telling you what was going to happen in the world of sports, I feel it my duty to share with you how it ultimately went.

As per usual, the results are … let’s just call them mixed.

You’re more than welcome to judge my ability (or lack thereof) however you see fit. I’m perfectly aware of the dart-monkey levels of accuracy I usually manage; you won’t be telling me anything I don’t already know.

The weather outside may be frightful, but the upcoming Grey Cup looks to be oh-so-delightful.

The 107th Grey Cup is upon us. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will face off on Nov. 24 to decide this year’s CFL champion. The game kicks off a little after 6 p.m. at McMahon Stadium in Calgary.

The Ti-Cats – who sported the CFL’s best regular season record – took down the crossover-winning Edmonton Eskimos 36-16 to take the East Division crown. The Bombers eked out a 20-13 win over the top-seeded Saskatchewan Roughriders to win the West. Now, the two teams face off to determine a champion.

Road to the Grey Cup 2019

We’re just past the halfway point of an NFL season that has seen some great moments and more than a few not-so-great ones. It has been exhilarating to watch, but the reality is that we’re still weeks away from games that will have any real implications with regards to the postseason.

However, as far as the league’s gridiron neighbor to the north is concerned, the postseason is already upon us.

The CFL postseason is set to begin, with six teams vying for the right to hoist aloft the Grey Cup. This year’s championship game – the 107th in the league’s history – is set to take place on Nov. 24 at McMahon Stadium in Calgary, marking the first time since 2009 that the city has hosted the game and the fifth time overall.

So who’s going to win?

Road to the Grey Cup 2018

We’re basically halfway through an NFL season that has had some great moments and more than a few not-so-great ones. While it has been fun, we’re still weeks away from games that have any sort of real implications with regards to the postseason.

However, in the league’s neighbor to the north, the playoffs are upon us.

The CFL postseason is set to begin, with six teams vying for the right to hoist aloft the Grey Cup. This year’s championship game – the 105th in the league’s history – is set to take place on Nov. 25 at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

So who’s going to win?

It’s June. The sports landscape is in flux. Baseball is in full flower, but both the NBA and NHL have just crowned their champions, bringing their respective seasons to a conclusion. And while the NFL is a year-round sport in many ways, we’re definitely in the league’s largest lull right now.

But all is not lost! There’s football being played! And not just World Cup football … although it is an international game.

The CFL’s season kicks off on June 14, with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers playing host to the Edmonton Eskimos. All told, each team plays 18 games in 21 weeks (as of this season, each squad gets three byes backed into the schedule), all leading up to the 106th Grey Cup, to be played in November at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

The Canadian game has its quirks and differences from what we see on Sundays in this country, but it’s those quirks and differences that make it fun to watch. It’s a fast-paced, wide-open game that offers plenty of action and excitement.

Here’s a quick look ahead to the 2018 CFL season.

Road to the Grey Cup 2017

We’re basically halfway through an NFL season that has been weird and unpredictable (in a not-great way) and ultimately not all that interesting. We’re still weeks away from games that have any sort of real implications with regards to the postseason.

However, in the league’s neighbor to the north, the playoffs are upon us.

The CFL postseason is set to begin, with six teams vying for the right to hoist aloft the Grey Cup. This year’s championship game – the 105th in the league’s history – is set to take place on Nov. 26 at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa.

So who’s going to win?
