Are there any non Canadians here who follow the CFL?
I am from London, England and live here again but i spent some time in Canada and became a fan of the Calgary Stampeders because thats where i lived and my girlfriend was an Outrider. I also like the Roughriders because she is from Saskatchewan. Although i still prefer the NFL, as i am huge Bears fan the CFL is very enjoyable, i wish there was more teams though. I never really liked hockey until i went to Calgary and the Flames fans converted me into a huge hockey nut. I stay up till 5am when the Flames are on TV. I was lucky enough to be in Calgary for the 2004 Playoffs and the atmosphere was just unbelievable, nearly as good as when England play world cup football (soccer) against a huge rival like Germany or Argentina.
I fell in love with Canada so much, the people are just amazing, the girls are gorgeous, you guys know how to party!
But I have a problem now as we might be moving to Vancouver next year, so which team do i support? Calgary, Sask or B.C? 3 teams is way to much to follow so should i stay loyal to the Stamps? I think so. And what about hockey? Are Flames fans welcome in Canuck territory?
If any of you guys follow English soccer especially Arsenal, please drop me a line and if any canucks come to London, i could show you around.
Take care kids, and remember don't buy drugs, become a famous rockstar and people give you them for free!
