Thats what I was hoping for. I did not want edmonton in there because I wanted Montreal fans to be in to it. Plus I didn't want Edmonton lording it over us (Rider fans). I also did not want BC in it, as from experience at Grey Cups, their fans are generally pricks. (there are exceptions, but on mass, that is my experience). I hope Montreal destroys Calgary on Sunday. I can't wait till I get Montreal.
Too bad that's the best CFL team in each conference you're comparing two fairly anonymous NHL teams to. A better comparison would be to ask which hockey fans here would run to buy tickets for a Montreal Canadiens - Detroit Red Wings game (whether those are the best teams in each conference is obviously up for debate, but it's a lot closer than comparing the two teams to columbus and nashville), in which case the number is probably significantly higher.
100% Agree, I used to think the same, but after my first GreyCup in Toronto last year, I don't plan on missing another one anytime soon! The people are nice, come from all over the country, Not just from the teams who are playing
I personally know people who are going up just for the festivities, Driving back home on the Sunday (to Hamilton) and watch the game at home.
