One of the perks of having the Calgary Stampeders' chaplain as a member of your church. I wonder how many favours he had to call in to bring that baby home for us to see. He talked about how both the Grey Cup and the communion cup represent victory, but the Grey Cup is earned by the blood and sweat and tears of people while the communion cup is earned by the blood and sweat and tears of Christ.
The thing turns 100 this year. Even though I'm not an avid football fan, it was pretty cool. I'm almost surprised that it didn't come with armed guards.
