Are you gonna throw my way?


And in keeping with the theme of the last two posts...

Breaking news out of the world of Canadian Football this week (which is a rare thing indeed). Seems that everyone's favourite New York neo-classic funk-rocker, Lenny Kravitz, will be the main attraction at this year's Grey Cup halftime show.

This year's Canadian Football League championship game will be played at the Roger's Centre in Toronto on Nov. 25.

Organizers are planning a week chock full of "rawkin' out" with street performances and Grey Cup themed concerts by Canadian acts such as the Barenaked Ladies, Blue Rodeo, Kim Mitchell, Great Big Sea, David Wilcox, April Wine and Loverboy, among others.

With all that musical talent floating around, it begs the question of whether the music will trump the actual game in terms of popular interest.

You mean....there's still interest in the game itself???

The jury's still out.

But what I wonder is how much they had to pay Kravitz to get him here and whether that amount was equal or greater to the combined salaries of every player, coach, assistant and staff of the Roger's Centre.

I suspect the answer is... greater than.
