CALGARY - It was a mistake-filled fourth quarter and a leaky defence on Monday.

It was a stagnant offence on Friday.

But no matter what depths you go to in unearthing the imperfections in the Calgary Stampeders’ performances against the Edmonton Eskimos this week, there’s only one thing that really matters — two wins and a Labour Day series sweep for the second straight year.

Ugly. Pretty. Whatever.

The work week is for parsing through the details, fixing the problems and moving on to the next one.

Game day is about putting up more points than the other team. That’s all.

In an 18-game season, they won’t all be Monets.

After two games in 96 hours, Stamps players will get a much-needed two-day break before getting back to work Monday at McMahon Stadium, and make no mistake, even at 8-2, there is work to be done.
