Since when was the CFL's demographic a bunch of teenage or not quite teenage girls. This is terrible!

I'd rather see the pre-game show than the halftime show.

Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, please what are we a bunch of teenagers - I don't think so. The pre-game show will be better. Think I'll just sit at the bar during the half-time show.
