OTTAWA - The last time Henry Burris played a CFL game in the nation's capital he left the stadium shaking his head -- and not just because he and his team, the Calgary Stampeders, lost 33-18 to the Renegades.

It was exactly nine years ago Wednesday -- July 16, 2005 -- and Burris was getting his one and only taste of an attempt by Ottawa president Lonie Glieberman to create a more "festive" experience with a Mardi Gras Madness promotion that led to females baring their breasts.

Burris didn't say it in so many words, but as he recalled the experience Wednesday afternoon it was obvious who he thought the real boobs were.
