Bye bye Buono

Green garbage bag day hit BC Lions coach Wally Buono extra hard this year.

The Lions were eliminated from postseason action after getting hammered by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 48-8.

It was after all Wally's last kick at the CFL playoff can. The legendary coach and General manager is retiring after what seems like forever as a player, coach, and general manager in the CFL.

Buono choked up as he bid adieu at his press conference in Vancouver, "I've been blessed, guys," Buono said. "God's been good to me, and I keep asking, why me? And I still don't know."

Buono, leaves the game with five Grey Cup victories under his belt as head coach and says he plans to spend more time with his family.

"Retiring is being able to pass onto your children, your grandchildren, more of your time. I mean, what else could there be?" Buono said. "I mean golf, OK. I'm not sure I could do that."

Buono leaves the league with 282 regular season wins on his record, more than any other head coach in CFL history, and with the distinction of having the most first-place finishes by a head coach. Buono is already in the CFL Hall of Fame.
