    Can't believe I missed this classic moment in questionable metrology the first time around. Recall the trend to describe the length of long objects in terms of NFL "football fields" - 100 yards (minus end zones). This Canadian splitter is similarly measured, but in terms of a CFL football field - 150 yards.
