CALGARY - The Grey Cup arrived in Calgary in one piece. [url=http://www.authenticbill
CALGARY - The Grey Cup arrived in Calgary in one piece. E.J. Gaines Jersey . It was the Stampeders who looked worse for wear.Quarterback Bo Levi Mitchells eyes were half-open and the voice of head coach and general manager John Hufnagel cracked as players and coaches rolled off a pair of buses at McMahon Stadium on Monday just past noon.The Stampeders had claimed the 102nd Grey Cup less than 24 hours earlier in Vancouver, where Calgary defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 20-16 at B.C. Place.The team flew in the morning via charter from the West Coast to frosty Calgary, where they were greeted by fans, including one dressed as Santa Claus, and their snow-covered cars in McMahons parking lot.The historic silver trophy that had separated into two pieces during post-game celebrations was intact again and hoisted repeatedly. The cup was back on its base and the players were hazy on the details of its reassembly.How did we fix it? I have no idea how they fixed that, said Mitchell, the Grey Cups MVP. They had some tape on it at first. I dont even know what happened to it. Hey, its a hundred years old right?The City of Calgary will host a downtown celebration for the Stampeders on Tuesday.The Stampeders have compiled the CFLs best regular-season record over their seven seasons under Hufnagel at 88-37-1. Calgary has posted the best single-season record in the CFL, or tied for it, five times.That hasnt often translated into playoff success. Calgary won a Grey Cup in Hufnagels first year at the helm in 2008, but after that the Stampeders were defeated Saskatchewan in three division finals (2009, 2010, 2013). The Stampeders also lost the 2012 Grey Cup to the host Toronto Argonauts.Ive only had one other Grey Cup win as the head coach, Hufnagel told assembled media. This is for the players. They went through way too much stuff from you guys, believe me, from you guys. Im very pleased they were able to exorcise all that.It was an exciting day, an exciting night. You cannot understand how pleased I am for the players.The Stampeders went 15-3 in the regular season to match a franchise record. Calgary downed the Edmonton Eskimos 43-18 in the West final to advance to this years Grey Cup.Its a satisfying feeling putting all that work in for six months in the off-season and five months during the season, Mitchell said. Hopefully its the first chapter in a very long book. Thats what Im really hoping.The quarterback estimated hed slept half an hour since winning the Grey Cup, linebacker Juwan Simpson said an hour and running back Jon Cornish managed about 90 minutes. Most of that shut-eye was on the flight back to Calgary.Once the plane landed, guys got right back energized, Simpson said. I expect it will be an interesting few weeks in Calgary. Doug Flutie Jersey . On Friday night, after a long rain delay, he was scratched from his scheduled start. Logan Thomas Jersey . In the days leading up to the draft, and TSN Radio basketball analyst Duane Watson looks at some of the names that will be headlining the event. Watch the 2014 NBA Draft on TSN, Thursday at 7pm et/4pm pt. . The 26-year-old Sobotka injured his left leg playing for the St. Louis Blues in a 3-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday. The Blues said he would not recover from the injury in time for the Olympic tournament.Prior to kick off, few would have given Euro 2016 minnows Iceland a chance against Portugal. The Nordic side, competing in their first ever major competition, are the smallest nation ever to make it to the European Championship finals.But while some might hail their improbable 1-1 draw as a triumph for the underdog, Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo had a different view. In his post-match interview, the Real Madrid forward blamed his sides failure to win on their opponents tactical approach, saying, Iceland didnt try anything, they were just defend, defend, defend and playing on the counter-attack. It was a lucky night for them.They scored a goal, they created two chances in the 90 minutes but otherwise they got every player behind the ball. They put the bus in the net.While no road vehicles actually made it onto the pitch during the game, Ronaldo isnt the only sportsman to use a strange excuse to justify a result, weve picked a few of our favourites from over the years…BOUNCY BALLS Kenny Dalglish blamed Newcastles FA Cup defeat to Stevenage on the ball being too bouncy Kenny Dalglish won the Premier League with Blackburn in 1995, but three years later was struggling to explain how his Newcastle side had only managed a draw against Stevenage in the FA Cup.The Scotsman eventually opted to apportion the blame to the ball, claiming it was too bouncy, an excuse which has become renowned as one of the worst in the sports history.AIR CONDITIONING Mervyn King blamed the air conditioning on his 2003 World Darts Championship defeat to Raymond Van Barneveld Mervyn Kings defeat to Raymond Van Barneveld in the 2003 World Darts Championship, was, the Englishman maintained, due to the air conditioning.Elaborating on his suggestion, King said I asked for it to be turned off before I went up there and it wasnt. I asked for it to be turned off at the break - it wasnt. The air conditioning doesnt affect Raymond because he throws a heavier dart and a very flat dart.Organisers insisted the air conditioning was left off for the duration of the match. Colton Schmidt Jersey. .WARDROBE MALFUNCTION Sanath Jayasuriya blamed Sri Lankas clothing in 2001 In the wake of their 2001 Champions Trophy loss, the Sri-Lanka cricket team held their kit responsible, alleging that it was too tight.Sanath Jayasuriya said: We had to add extensions to the trousers and the shirts looked more like tight-fitting womens blouses. UNEXPECTED DISTRACTION Ronnie Osullivan was put off by a streaker at the Masters in 1997 Leading 8-4 in the 1997 Masters Snooker final, little, it seemed, could derail 21-year-old Ronnie OSullivans quest to lift the trophy against fellow finalist Steve Davis.However, an unprecedented occurrence had taken place earlier in the match, in the form of Lianne Crofts, who at the start of the third frame became Snookers first-ever streaker.Needing to secure just two more frames to win, OSullivan was allegedly distracted by the incident, despite it taking place 10 frames before. He went on to lose the next six and ultimately the match.I needed to pull something out, fortunately a member of the crowd pulled something out and Ronnies…concentration was affected, Davis later said. THE PARANORMAL Eddy Curry was spooked ahead of a New York Knicks fixture Perhaps the most bizarre explanation on the list, in 2010 the New York Knicks blamed their defeat to Oklahama City Thunder on ghosts.Staying at the Skirvin Hilton, Knicks players claimed they had trouble sleeping, as they were convinced the hotel was haunted.Seven-foot tall centre Eddy Curry said he slept for just two hours on one of the nights of their stay because he couldnt stop thinking about ghosts roaming the hotel. Thunder ran out 106-88 winners.
