University of Toronto Varsity Blues kick losing ways: An 18-17 win over the University of Waterloo Warriors ended the skid at 49 games last night......But a streak this long couldn't end so easily. Waterloo had 21 ticks on the clock left and drove the ball over midfield. With six seconds left on the clock, the Warriors punted and for a few seconds all 2,565 on hand had their hearts in their throats as the ball bounced off return man Matt Morris' hands and fell to the ground on the U of T one-yard line.

Here's the game-winning field goal.

In my four years on campus (on the oooooold Ontario strand, my friends) I lived with a couple football players. All were absolutely the nicest guys, and super-professional about the very real possibility of never winning a game in their university careers. They'll have moved on by now, but it's nice to know that this chapter of their lives has finally closed.

Guess the Blues need not be so blue anymore. Must be nice to get that monkey off their backs.

I think that it's also a sign of more positive times to come when we have CIS football as an FPP here at SpoFi. Talk about marginalized sport in N. America ... this has got to be one of 'em.

As an alumni of Waterloo, I couldn't be more proud.

Wait, that's not the word I'm looking for...
