It’s always refreshing to have a bit of change from your ordinary day. Unfortunately the news we bring you today isn’t the glorious “Roll up The Rim” event, but a Canadian celebration nonetheless. This morning I waltzed into my local Tim’s and ordered up my usual beverages, but this time was presented with the “special edition Grey Cup-themed hot beverage cups.” Tim’s is working with the CFL and honouring their 100th Grey Cup by branding various items, specifically the Tim Card, a donut called the “football supreme,” and their coffee/tea cups.
The cup sports the CFL and Grey Cup logos. The most prominent change to the glorious cup is that it’s been redesigned to look like a football. Unfortunately it’s still made of cardboard and no sign of leather, nor even textured like a football… now that would be remarkable and really have worldwide press. Overall, same cup feel, but really makes you want to throw it at somebody, plus it’s packed with a bit more pride. The special edition cups will be available until Grey Cup Sunday on November 25th.
