    It’s actually the 104th season of the CFL as from 1916-19
    there were no CFL Playoffs nor Grey Cups due to ‘O Canada’s
    participation in WWI and the spanish flu epidemic that claimed
    so many lives around the world in that time period. But the above
    is good news and I will pass this on to the ‘loving public’ of my I-net
    publication, “Salzer’s Report”.

    When are we getting a Pantheon Cup set. I still can’t belive San Fran beat the Sharks back in ’99. Beamen was on fire!
