19,000+ tickets sold as of yesterday. Argos will be hoping for a good walk-up crowd.
RE: Edmonton Eskimos @ Toronto Argonauts ESF
Market of just over 4.5 million peeps (largest in Canada)
Infested by losing franchises (BlooperJays, Mople Laffs, Craptors, Soccer) run by thugs and miscreants that can't make playoffs yet turn in sellout after sellout at prices 3 to 10 times the cost of an Argos ducat.
Actually 19,000 pre-sold is darn good (if that number isn't bolstered by papering)
If they get a walkup of 2,000 to 4,000 and have a gametime crowd nearing 24,000 thats pretty good. And where's Pinball in the selling of tickets, invisible?
Postscript: With the 100th Grey Cup in Toronto and a guaranteed sellout (approx. half the crowd will be from out of town) they should have spiked the price of GC tickets and included a playoff voucher in the package. Brought to you by the makers of hindsight - 20/20

The Buchko who runs the Esks might fire Kavis at halftime and bring Plop aboard.
Seriously, the Esks have to blow themselves up. Keep about half to 2/3 of their roster - some damn good athletes on board.
Tilman - The Hurrican Sandy of the CFL.
ahhhhhhhh. lapo and reindorf at the half.
new cfl record for points scored by one team in one quarter.
What a crazy game so far. So third quarter is Edmonton's? See if they can break that record and then hold during Toronto's 4th quarter.
I'll give Randork 20 bucks if he calls him Plop....!!!!
