    Nice book on the history of the Canadian professional football championship game s history However, I found some of the stories in the book to be a little repetative, and the stats in the Appendix are helpful, I found a couple to be incorrect i.e wrong teams playing in certain years I want to give this a 3.5 5, but I don t see anyway to give half stars on here.
