Default T10: The 5MV Grey Cup

This is a silly update, but it's one I've had in mind for a loooong time. I think I first got the idea about six years ago. Here in Canada, our version of the Super Bowl is called the Grey Cup. Why not do what I did to Average Joe and have a Grey Cup at 5MV involving various Grays or Greys related in some way to this site?

Because there aren't ten of them, that's why. But I found a solution! And I've been waiting to drop it for years, but whenever Grey Cup day comes around, I'm always too busy with the Cup itself.

This year I've finally got it done. Coming at you live from some stadium or other, here's Top 10 list #111: The Events of the FiveMinute.net Grey Cup.

(The game was good too, btw. Went into overtime!)

That's a good punchline!

Since yesterday was the next real-life Grey Cup (which my team won!), it reminded me I have a little update to share.

Some of you probably wondered why a list of characters with Gray in their names left out the actual Star Trek character named Gray. The reason is that I hadn't met that one yet. Due to my personal "constraint", I hadn't watched any more DSC past the first season until finishing the "Binary Stars" fiver -- which I finally did almost immediately after posting this list! Funny how that worked out, huh?

I've actually found myself enjoying DSC in a detached way (more on that later). But needless to say, Gray Tal benefited from this timing. Even the Gray from Torchwood could've taken THAT one.
