There is actual, real football happening this summer and it features actual, real former college football players. It’s the CFL, and the regular season starts on Thursday night with the Toronto Argonauts taking on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. While there are plenty of sports viewing options over the next few weeks (this summer, especially), there is only one way to get your pigskin fix until training camp and fall practice begin. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise: The CFL is football, and even with some wacky rules, there are some faces you might recognize.
