The CFL has the Grey Cup. The NFL Europa has a crystal globe. That's a tie.

So let's go to American franchises that played for either. The CFL had Las Vegas and Shreveport LA (hometown), and that beats the old World League whose American franchises include Raleigh-Durham (the area where my home that I'm trying to sell currently sits).

Worksheet rounds have the potential to screw over a team, while theme packets can be counted on to screw a team.

Let's use double-elimination to determine the winner.

FIRST ROUND
NINJAS DEF. PIRATES 8-3. Ninjas small-ball the inferior Pittsburgh team all over the field.

VIKINGS DEF. LUMBERJACKS 28-0. NAU doesn't even have a football team, but the Lumberjacks cover the spread. Leo Wolpert loses $100.

SECOND ROUND
VIKINGS DEF. NINJAS 56-49. No Ninja can tackle Steve Hutchinson. No Viking can catch up to a ninja. Vikings win when Ninjas inexplicably attempt a forward pass.

LUMBERJACKS DEF. PIRATES 85-68. Northern Arizona can still shoot threes like nobody's business. PIRATES ELIMINATED

THIRD ROUND
NINJAS DEF. LUMBERJACKS by 5 seconds in 100-meter dash, supervised by Jerry, who seems to be the only person who can actually count in meters. LUMBERJACKS ELIMINATED

FOURTH ROUND
NINJAS DEF. VIKINGS 3-1 in the obstacle course, as they are faster, more agile, and completely accustomed to doing this kind of stuff for fun.

FIFTH ROUND
VIKINGS DEF. NINJAS by 21 seconds in rowing. Accusations that CBI rigged the sport-picking process so that the Minnesota team wins are unconfirmed. NINJAS ELIMINATED, VIKINGS WIN.

Quoted for awesomeness, though you have apparently forgotten the "Spam" sketch and the Vikings' amazing sweep across Britain in an epic conquest of diner-like proportions.

Ufologists simply abduct all of the cryptozoologists and perform anal probes until they submit.

Bartman, as nothing can match the impotent fury of a deluded Cubs fan who thought that Steve Bartman might have something to do with why they didn't make the World Series. (It was the goat, I say!)

Godot, representing the bourgeoisie, holds the proletarian Gogo and Didi in his thrall from afar. Lucky represents Lenin; Pozzo represents the film "Battleship Potemkin".

The triply-first named Dr. Chuck impregnates Hentzel with the Tango de la Muerte. Thus the first PACE NSC to be held in hotel rooms is born.

Euro Disney has some stuff designed by Frank Gehry, while the Creation Museum has hilariously illegal hiring practices (Title VII, Civil Rights Act of 1964). Also, the Creation Museum has an exhibit of a triceratops with a saddle that it presents as fact. The Creation Museum implodes in a cloud of its own ridiculousness, and Euro Disney continues to piss off French cultural purists and francophiles in peace.
