Default CFL in the USA

I heard an interesting statistic recently that said 70 million Americans have the ability to watch CFL (Canadian Football League for those of you that don't know what I'm talking about) games with thier current cable/satellite setup. Of course in Canada I can watch almost every NFL game no problem.

Does anyone here in the states follow Canadian football? Like it? Watch on a regular basis? I was just curious....

x2, I really enjoy the CFL, but the NFL is such an established league in the US, the CFL will never catch on.
