    In Alberta, we enjoy the Labour Day Classic when the Eskimos and Stamps battle it out on the field.  Many other CFL teams play their rivals too.  But one team will sit out this weekend, having no other team to play against.  Which one is it?

    • A.

      Montreal Alouettes

    • B.

      REDBLACKS

    • C.

      BC Lions

    • D.

      Everybody plays somebody don't they?

    Correct Answer
    C. BC Lions
    Explanation
    While it may seem like "no contest" with the Alouettes sitting at the bottom of the standings they will play the REDBACKS (aren't they too new to have a real rival?) on Friday. And the BC Lions? Since they are free this weekend maybe the players could work a second job to earn a little cash to pay for all those free tickets the club owes their fans following the "guaranteed win" loss to Saskatchewan.

    Wearing this colour after Labour Day might get you a ticket from a fashion cop!

      Pale Pink

    • B.

      White

    • C.

      Lime Green

    • D.

      Gray

    Correct Answer
    B. White
    Explanation
    One theory traces the no white rule to the time when rich folk fled the city for the summer. While at the seaside they wore white. After vacation, it was back to the city for business in dark, serious clothes. Anyone wearing white after Labour Day was a rube. That's the theory. But the real reason we don't wear white after Labour Day is that voice in our head telling us not to do it - thanks, Mom!
