TORONTO—After all the hype, this is what it comes to; the 100th Grey Cup. The hometown Toronto Argonauts take on the Calgary Stampeders Sunday at the Rogers Centre, and given both teams' remarkable playmakers, it's a game that could turn into a high-scoring shootout.

There are so many storylines heading into this game that it's tough to pick just a few. Will the Stampeders down the Argonauts in a repeat of the famous 1971 Grey Cup? That 1971 result brought a future Prime Minister to tears, but he'd be quite happy to see a Calgary victory now. Or will Ricky Ray finish a year where he dominated the CFL storylines in stunning fashion, earning his third Grey Cup ring (but his first since 2005) and giving the Argonauts their first title since 2004? Can Calgary quarterback Kevin Glenn make his first start in a Grey Cup a memorable one, bringing a fitting conclusion to his odyssey? Will Jon Cornish or Chad Kackert win the battle of the running backs? Can 2012 Most Outstanding Player Chad Owens maintain his dual-threat dominance as a returner and a receiver, perhaps giving Toronto an edge? Will anyone on the Argonauts be able to cover Maurice Price?
