A bit early but that last GDT was just sad. I'll enjoy threading this one.
STAMPS LOOK TO END DRY RUN IN T.O.
Mike Hardiman, Stampeders.com
The Calgary Stampeders stay on the road in Week 9 as they head east to the Big Smoke to take on the Toronto Argonauts in a rematch of last year's Grey Cup game.
This will be Calgary's last set of back-to-back road games this season as the Stamps will play six of their last 10 games at home.
The Stamps had their four-game winning streak broken by the Lions in Week 8, losing 26-22, but they remain second in the West with a 5-2 record.
The Argos outlasted the visiting Eskimos 36-33 last week and now own the league's longest current win streak at four games. Toronto also has a 5-2 record after seven games and sits atop the East Division, two games up on second-place Hamilton.
The teams met twice last year in the regular season with the Argos winning both games, 39-36 at Rogers Centre in Week 2 and 22-14 at McMahon in Week 8. Of course, the two teams met one more time in the Grey Cup game in Toronto and the Argos beat Calgary for a third time, this time by a 35-22 score.

Jon Cornish is now doubtful for the game.
The news just gets betterer 'n betterer, don't it?
DEPTH CHART & ROSTER
Where did the whole Game Day Thread idea come from? I mean if fans are watching the game who's online typing about it?
The game day thread cat.
She's a Stampsfan mod who works cheap. Madman just feeds her vittles.
So can Toronto vs Calgary match the finish of tonight's game?
I would doubt it.
"The Calgary Stampedbackups vs. the Toronto Argonauts".
Doesn't have the same dramatic aura about it as does "Grey Cup Redux".
This might not be pretty.
But that wouldn't be at all new for the Stampeders in Toronto....
Will it be the boatmen, or the horsemen?
Should be an interesting game.
Go Stamps Go!
Well if there is one team the Stamps should show a different look to - it's Toronto. If Mon can beat BC, the Stamps can definitely pound the Argos.
3 storylines to watch against Argos
This one almost writes itself.
It’s pretty easy to figure out the storylines when it comes to Friday’s tilt at the Rogers Centre between the Calgary Stampeders and the Toronto Argos in a rematch of last November’s 100th Grey Cup.
With all the injuries on the offensive side of the ball for the Stamps, how they plan on moving the football is definitely the most interesting.
Preview: Argos, Stamps clash in 100th Grey Cup rematch
The Toronto Argonauts are gunning for their fifth straight win, as they host the Calgary Stampeders on Friday night at the Rogers Centre in a rematch of the 100th Grey Cup.
Both teams have returned to dominant form in 2013, going a combined 10-4 since the Argos laid claim to the championship in the historic game late last November – and on Friday they’ve each got something to prove.
