Two things you may not know: The Toronto Argonauts won the Grey Cup last year (go team!), and a select group of coaches and players (the Argos are a diverse group, counting disgraced NFLers, tireless vets and All Canadian sports studs among their roster) are offering sports-dumb women a unique service: a crash course in the rules of the game and initiation into the eternal mysteries of the CFL.
So ladies are you interested? No, us neither. But why not give it a shot. You may learn something, e.g., football is even more boring and/or complex than you ever imagined.
“Football 101” info sessions break the action down from kickoff to player positions and play formations, and participants walk away with a full stomach (dinner is included) and two complimentary tickets to a game at the Rogers Centre (formerly known as the SkyDome). Seminars cost $59.95 (knowledge always comes with a price) and are on a first come, first served basis.
Football 101 sessions: June 23, July 7, Aug. 10 and Sept. 8 (6:30 p.m. start time).
