And I didn't realize that the big prize in Canadian "Football" is a
Rugby cup. The Grey Cup, named after Earl Grey (of tea fame), was
presented in 1909 to recognize the top amateur Rugby team. Since then
amateur Canadian yielded to primarily second string American
professionals, the rules changed, but the field stayed the same size
as the Rugby pitch.

Who would'a thunk it.
