My family is cooler then your family.

Although I am not a huge football fan, I can appreciate that there are few cooler stories in the history of the Canadian
Grey Cup than that of the 1957 tripper! I am proud to say that it is my grandfather that famously took down Hamilton defensive back, Ray Bawel, and got away with it. The live footage is hilarious and easy to access.

For a full story, there is also a recent article in the Globe.

Thanks to an uncle of the same name, I was lucky enough to attend this event 50 years later. I kept waiting for something dramatic and exciting to happen in the crowd, along the sidelines, in the never ending beer line up...Turns out, something like that only happens once every 50 years!

We are two best friends: Sarah and Lara.

We have been collaging together since we were in kindergarten. From hilroy to apple, the medium has changed but the message remains the same.

We get by with a little help from our friends,
