Come along with Tidbits as we continue to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Grey Cup! REMARKABLE PLAYERS • Fullback Dan Huclak of the Winnepeg Blue Bombers won his first Grey Cup in 1984, breaking a 22-year dry streak for the team. In 2010, Dan was mugged on a Winnipeg city street. With only $40 in his wallet, the two thieves also robbed him of his Grey Cup ring, stealing it off his finger. Media coverage was enormous. The thieves were never caught. Two months later, the ring turned up on Dan’s doorstep, next to the newspaper. No one knows who took it, or who brought it back.

REMARKABLE PLAYERS (continued): • In 1991, quarterback Matt Dunigan broke his shoulder in a playoff game a week prior to the championship game. He told coach Adam Rita, “My arm feels like a rag, but Coach, I’m finishing it.” After doctors deadened the shoulder, he could still throw the length of a hotel ballroom. In temperatures that hovered around -16C (3F), Dunigan threw two touchdowns, leading the Argonauts to a 36-21 victory over the Stampeders, and winning his second Grey Cup. • The 1984 Grey Cup game featured two starting quarterbacks who had actually been traded for each other the previous season: Tom Clements and Ralph Dieter Brock.

◆ If you run out of buttermilk, you can use an equal amount of yogurt, preferably the nonsweetened, plain variety, but you can adjust the sugar in a recipe slightly if your yogurt is favorably flavored. ◆ When entertaining, keep cold drinks in a cooler away from the kitchen. This keeps the floor space free for the cooks. ◆ Soften brown sugar quickly by grating it on a fine hand grater. If you have a bit more time, add an apple to the container and seal tightly. ◆ “Day-old bread makes excellent hand-made croutons. Slice, spray with cooking spray and season with whatever spices on hand sound good. Toast in a 300 degree F. oven for 10 minutes or so. They are especially good with soups.” -- S.S.D. in Maryland

• Bud Grant and Marv Levy won a combined six Grey Cups between them, but went 0 for 8 when they played in the Superbowl, with Bud losing four bids playing for the Minnesota Vikings and Marv losing four bids for the Superbowl with the Buffalo Bills. • Don Getty was born in Westmount, Quebec in 1933, and attended University of Western Ontario where he quarterbacked for the Mustangs. After he graduated, the Edmonton Eskimos offered him a professional contract. He played ten seasons with them. Getty was one of the most successful Canadian-born quarterbacks in the history of the Canadian Football League, and sits at third on the all-time passing yardage list of Canadian quarterbacks, behind Russ Jackson and Gerry Dattilio, with nearly nine thousand yards. In 1956 his team won the Grey Cup. Getty was declared the outstanding Canadian player in the Western Interprovincial Football Union in 1959, and was the runner up (to Jackson) for the Schenley Award as the league’s most outstanding Canadian player the same year. He was placed on the Eskimos’ Wall of Honour in 1992. Getty entered politics in 1965, and in 1985 was appointed 11th Premier of Alberta, a position he held for seven years. SHENANIGANS • In the 1921 Grey Cup, the Edmonton Eskimos were up against the Toronto Argonauts. Multi-sport star Lionel Conacher was Toronto’s top player, and scored 15 of his team’s points before leaving the game after the 3rd quarter to join his hockey team for their game. Toronto won in spite of his abandonment, 23-0.

Q: My Thursday nights just aren’t the same without “Community.” When will the show return, and will it be on Fridays, which is what I heard last? -- David S., via e-mail A: NBC recently announced that “Community” -- which stars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover and Chevy Chase -- has ping-ponged back to its original Thursday night at 8/7c time slot, beginning Feb. 7. “Community” takes the place of “30 Rock,” which will

*** Q: On your recommendation, I watched Bill Pullman in Scott Turrow’s “Innocent,” which carried on the story of “Presumed Innocent” main character Rusty Sabich 20 years later, where he is accused of murdering his wife. I absolutely loved it, and it got me to thinking that in my opinion, Bill Pullman is underutilized in Hollywood. Can you tell me what I can see him in next? -- Virginia F. in Connecticut A: Beginning Thursday, Jan. 10, at 9:30/8:30c, Bill does a 180 from his “Innocent” role to star as the president of the United States in the NBC comedy “1600 Penn.” The series was co-created

by Jason Winder, director for “Modern Family,” so I can only hope that some of that comic genius carries over to this new series. And Bill is no stranger to being the POTUS (see: “Independence Day”), nor is he averse to being funny. In fact, when I spoke with the star of the dark comedy “Mr. Wrong” earlier this year, he told me he was eager to get back into comedy if he got the right script. *** Q: My roommate told me that there is going to be a new “Battlestar Galactica” movie on the Syfy channel. Is that true? If so, when? -- Harold W., Boston A: “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome” is set to debut this March on Syfy, and stars Luke Pasqualino and Ben Cotton. According to reps for Syfy, the film “takes place in the midst of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic

Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, gifted fighter pilot William Adama (Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and hungry for action, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle-weary officer Coker (Cotton).” The film already is airing in weekly seven-to-10-minute segments on the Machinima Prime YouTube channel for those who can’t wait until March, as long as you don’t mind short segments with a week between airings. *** Q: I can’t stand the waiting! When will “Smash” be back? --- Eric P., via e-mail A: You’ll have to wait just a little bit longer. The musical melodrama returns to NBC on Feb. 5.

• The Grey Cup in 1956 ended in bizarre fashion: after Jackie Parker scored a touchdown late in the game that gave Edmonton a 50–27 lead, fans swarmed the field, celebrating riotously even though the game was not yet over.

FAMOUS GAMES • Just before the 1939 game in Toronto, the weather turned wet, then cold. The field froze solid, becoming rock hard turf. In an effort to soften it up, groundskeepers drenched the field with 400 gallons of gasoline and lit it on fire the day before the game. • The condition of the field at Toronto’s Varsity Stadium were so poor in 1950 that the game has been dubbed the “Mud Bowl.” The days prior to the game were wet and the day before the game a heavy snow fell. Heavy equipment went out to clear the field, making things worse. On the day of the game, the weather warmed, melting the snow, and a steady rain began to fall. The field was covered in huge puddles of water when 27,000 fans gathered to watch the Argonauts go against the Blue Bombers. At one point Winnipeg’s Buddy Tinsley was found face down in a large puddle, apparently unconscious and drowning, though he later stated he was merely stunned from a tackle that aggravated a previous injury. The Argonauts won, 13 – 0, and it was the last time any team was shut out in a Grey Cup final.

The operation was successful -- in more ways than anyone anticipated. It seems that the doctors, upon studying the removed organ, found certain cells that had unique cancer-fighting properties. The discovery led to a new -- and profitable -- treatment. When Moore found out that his spleen had led to this discovery, he sued the Regents of the University of California for a share of the profits. In 1990, 14 years after his cancer was cured, he lost his court case. ◆ Those who study such things say that ants stretch and yawn when they wake up. ◆ If you’re like 43 percent of the American population, you refuse to ever try eating snails, regardless of the fact that they’re regarded as a delicacy in other parts of the world. *** Thought for the Day: “The fear of becoming a ‘has-been’ keeps some people from becoming anything.” -- Eric Hoffer

FAMOUS LANDMARKS OF THE WORLD:

ARC DE TRIOMPHE

At the western end of Paris’ Champs-Elysees on the right bank of the Seine, the regal Arc de Triomphe stands guard over the city. Here are the highlights about this monument, the Arch of Victory, the brainstorm of Napoleon Bonaparte. • Following his most important victory of the Napoleonic Wars, Bonaparte ordered the construction of the Arch in 1805. He intended it as a commemoration to all French soldiers who had fought during the wars, and it was his plan that his soldiers would march through the arch upon their return home. However, it took two years just to lay the foundations, and when Napoleon entered the city in 1810, he came from a different direction. • When the architect of the monument died in 1811, the work was taken over by another for a few years. However, when Napoleon lost power, construction was halted and did not resume until 1833. The Arch was not completed until 1836. Meanwhile, Napoleon died in exile on the island of St. Helena in 1821 and was buried there. In 1840, King Louis Philippe I arranged for Napoleon’s remains to be returned to France and at long last, Napoleon entered Paris through the Arc de Triomphe. • The Arch sits at the center of 12 main avenues which radiate outward. It reaches 162 feet (49.5 meters) to the sky and is 72 feet (22 meters) deep. Its base features four groups of elaborate sculptures, the most famous of which is “La Marseillaise,” featuring the woman Marianne, the national emblem of France representative of Liberty and Reason.

Six other reliefs are sculpted on the facades of the Arch depicting important battles of the French Revolution and Napoleonic era. On the inside of the Arch, a list of French victories is engraved, as well as the names of the military leaders of those battles. The names that are underlined represent those who were killed in action. Still more sculptures representing characters of Roman mythology decorate the Arch. • Beneath the vault of the Arch lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, interred there on Armistice Day (November 11) of 1920, to commemorate the signing of the armistice between France and Germany in 1918. Prior to the interment, the Arch was the site of troops parading after military victories, as well as the annual Bastille Day military parade. However, as a sign of respect, parade traffic now marches to the Arch, but then turns to go around its side. A ceremony is held there every November 11. • The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier contains an eternal flame that burns in memory of all the unidentified dead. When President John F. Kennedy and wife Jacqueline visited Paris in 1961, they paid their respects at the Tomb. After JFK’s assassination two years later, Mrs. Kennedy recalled the eternal flame and asked that one be placed at her husband’s grave at Arlington National Cemetery.

Pet Bits Puppy Thinks Shoes Are Chew Toys DEAR PAW’S CORNER: Help! Our new puppy, “Elwood,” is getting into everything, chewing up my kids’ shoes and tearing the stuffing out of stuffed animals. Any advice on getting him to stop? -- Jessica G., via email

Add Taste of India to Roasted Potatoes I enjoy tossing a variety of spices in family meals, but I clearly hadn’t used mustard seeds in a while -- make that a long while. While cleaning out my spice drawer, I discovered a dented can wedged in back with a 1985 expiration date stamped on the bottom. It might be a good year for a fine wine, but mustard seeds? The experience had a positive outcome. I dashed off to my neighborhood natural-foods store to pick up fresh spices in bulk (in small quantities) for fall and holiday cooking. While there, I was inspired to take in that evening’s cooking class, “Global Flavor Gone Local,” with chef Kate Moore. Full of tips and tricks, Kate encouraged us to be spontaneous when cooking at home. With a wellstocked pantry of spices, it’s easy to change the flavor profile of a dish. Like Italian? Use basil, parsley and garlic. Latin? Try cumin, coriander and chipotle. “With a willingness to experiment, kitchen miracles can happen,” she said. Here’s my own take on Kate’s techniques for preparing Indian-flavored roasted potatoes. My family always clamors for more of these spiced up spuds when served as a side with roasted chicken, pork or grilled fish.

Indian-Spiced Roasted Potatoes 6 medium, red or white skin potatoes 2 tablespoons minced garlic 1 tablespoon grated or minced fresh ginger 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon mustard seeds 1 teaspoon coriander seeds 1 teaspoon cumin seeds Salt to taste 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 2. Scrub, dry and cut the potatoes into eighths and place in a bowl. 3. Heat a saute pan with olive oil over medium heat and toss in a “tester” pinch of ginger. When the ginger starts to sizzle, toss in the remaining ginger, the garlic and whole spices. Cook until fragrant and spices are lightly toasted, about 1-2 minutes. 4. Spoon the Indian-flavored oil and ingredients into the bowl of potatoes. Add salt and toss until all sides of the potatoes are well-coated. 5. Spoon potatoes on a baking sheet and spread out onto one layer. Roast for 30 minutes, or until tender. Flip once to ensure even cooking. 6. Remove from oven and serve. Serves 6.

DEAR JESSICA: Getting a puppy to completely stop exploring and chewing is a job that requires time and patience. You also need to reconfigure your house to keep Elwood safe. If he ingests a shard of plastic or some other indigestible item, a poisonous plant or medicines from lower bathroom cabinets, he could be in serious danger. First, pet proof the house. Invest in toddler safety gates (if you don’t already have some) to limit Elwood to parts of the house where he’s less likely to find shoes, toys and other objects. In that gated-off area, remove kids’ toys, clothing, stuffed animals and other chewable objects. Lift potted plants out of his reach (the leaves of many houseplants are poisonous to pets). Make sure Elwood has access to his pet bed and to appropriate chew toys, and check on him frequently. Puppies should not be left alone for long periods of time, for many reasons. Next, get that basic obedience training regime going. Grab a book or three on dog training, all of which will cover important basic commands like “sit,” “stay,” “come” and “heel.” Spend at least 30 minutes every day working with Elwood, in addition to twice-daily walks and generous amounts of playtime. Chewing behavior is very common in puppies, but tends to diminish as they mature. If he continues to destroy everything in sight, talk to his veterinarian or try a group dog-training class. Anxiety or other issues can be at the root of longterm chewing problems.

Since 1977, Hockey Ministries International has been active in every area of hockey including youth, college and junior, European, Minor Pro, and the NHL. Through their camps, chapels, clinics, and conferences they serve the spiritual needs of players, coaches, families and fans. Each summer HMI hosts over 2,000 of hockey’s youth at Christian Hockey Camps International. The camps are a highlight for these young players. Summer hockey is combined with a caring staff and fun atmosphere to present the gospel message. HMI’s chapel program, now present in 22 North American leagues, is offered to teams to provide a safe spiritual and emotional resource for players. It is also an opportunity for all players to seek answers, counsel and support from Chaplains.

Don Richmond,

local hockey chaplain. “I joined HMI because I believe in a missional life, which I am living here in BC. Unlike many Christian groups, I do not differentiate between local and foreign missions, for that is a paradigm that only makes sense from a small thinking western perspective. I simply want to light up the world, where people need Christ.”
