    Briefly, anyway. Scientists say a meteor lit up the skies in western Canada Thursday night. They think it had a diameter of 18 meters, or upwards of 60 feet.

    Anything much bigger than that and there's a big-ass smoking crater where Lloydminster used to be.

    It's a sign from God that the Leafs' Cup drought will end.

    Given that it was over Alberta, it may be a sign from God that the Stampeders' Grey Cup drought will end.

    A buddy of mine in Edmonton saw that shoot across the sky as he was driving. He couldn't tell if Bruce Willis was on it.

    Funny. USA Today has a story on it but for the life of me I can't find anything on either the Star or Globe website.

    Oh, well, no one from the Centre of the Universe was killed so it's not really a story.
