I assume the RedBlacks are named after the very fundamental data structure known as the Red-Black Tree?

 

Hey, where'd the create link button go? I'll surely be banned if I post something off topic to an off topic post AND a long link!!

@Than_Bogan its better than their previous name the "Ottawa Roughriders", not because that's a bad name (kinda bad a$$ really), but because there's already another team in the CFL called the Roughriders (Saskatchewan)...

 

Yes! there were 2 teams in an 8 team league with the same name.... so now we get the Red Blacks

@Than_Bogan....the previous name of the ottawa team was owned/retained by the owner when the team went bankrupt.he wanted too much money for the name Rough Riders when the team was resurrected....do they named it for the temp colors....too funny

OK, FYI, the RedBlack's name comes from a Lumberjacks shirt, you know the Red/black plaid, the mascot is a Lumberjack.

The Grey Cup is the oldest championship in North America and it came down to Overtime, even with a 20 point lead at the half, we all knew it was anyone's game. QB's have a huge field and only 3 downs, so lots of passing in the game.

It was a great game yesterday! Now: Go Seahawks!
