Once upon a time, the Calgary Stampeders were the toast of the Canadian Football League. Then Coach/GM Wally Buono got unceremoniously tossed by the team's owner, and things have been downhill ever since. This season the Stamps were riding a six-game losing streak (and were 2-11 overall). The B.C. Lions were the exact opposite. The team was middling at best until Wally Buono arrived and turned the team around. Heading into tonight's game they were 9-3 and riding an eight-game winning streak.
And tonight, the Stamps won a friggin' game 22-21. Against a much, much better team. They're still terrible (as 3-11 will testify to), but there's a flicker of hope. With the NHL in a lockout and the Flames extinguished for a while, hope is all we'll have for a bit.

Someone seemed to have left out that the last second Touchdown to give Calgary the win, the Stamps running back got stopped short yet for some reason the ref called it a touchdown.
One thing The Stamps have in there corner is a very good defense all year round. But your offense is non-existent.

Fans who love old-style physical football -- some would say the pre-Roger Goodell era -- are bound to be outraged by a proposed NFL rule that prohibits the ball-carrier from initiating contact with the crown of his helmet. http://www.torontosun.
