Canvember 2013: Grey Cup 2013

CFL

For the last post of Canvember, I thought I would talk about Canadian Football League [CFL] Championship Game & the trophy: Grey Cup. Note: I am not a major football fan (either side of the border really), but with the game just wrapping up this past weekend, I thought I would take the time to talk about the event and the differences between that and Super Bowl Sunday.

The Corpse with the Golden Nose

By Cathy Ace

Published: Feb. 26 2013

Company: TouchWood Editions

Language: English

.

Somehow I have ended up picking two detective/murder mystery books for Canvember without realizing it.
