Never, EVER leave a football game early

In the 30+ years that my family has been attending CFL football games we have had one simple rule - you never leave a football game early. And here is why:

Ottawa scored first in the game last night, but by the end of the 3rd quarter it was 33-10 for the Als. Not so unusual when you consider what a powerhouse Montreal is, and how poorly Ottawa has been playing.

We had wanted to head back downtown to watch the fireworks, so we left the game with 5 minute remaining. At the time we left, it was 33-23 and we figured, yep it's been a good ride, but there is no way. Boy were we wrong. They tied it up. That's right, they scored 23 unanswered points in the 4th quarter.

To add insult to injury, they won in double overtime - 39-36. The way I look at it is that if we'd stayed they would have sucked, (yes, I do keep telling myself that) and the fireworks were worth it.

But I've broken the rule once, and felt the wrath of the football gods.
