So as you all know, I live here. I actually work like a half block from the area where the festivities are being held at Churchill Square. The preparations are already underway (with the blowing snow and cold).. and Churchill Sq is turning into a fun place.
I hope you guys will take in the Zip Line! that's supposed to be crazy. 80km+ speeds and 110yd distance! plus it is free!
We have our gigantic christmas tree up at the corner of 102a Ave and 99th st.
What they're doing with the Square in prep for the Grey Cup is amazing.. I will be posting pictures of the progress for people to look at.
I'll be there. And I'm bringing my 2 buddies (who are Ti-cat fans) with me. I read about that zip line on the Grey Cup site and it looks sick! I'm gonna be all over that thing. I'm probably gonna check it out on Thursday because I got a feeling by the weekend the line ups will be insane. The tree sounds pretty sweet too. Wouldn't mind seeing some sneek-preview pics.
See ya there! I can't wait to, brrrrr, check it out! It'll be a blast I'm sure.
My sister, who works with ex-Eskie Hec Poitier, I think is getting me tickets to a Saturday afternoon fund-raiser that will feature something like 70 CFL alumni. That should be VERY cool I can't wait to meet some of my long time heroes.
True Birdman but at least now come Dec. 1 we have a mayor who isn't obstructionistic in his outlook towards the TigerCats and what bringing Grey Cups to a city can mean ie both Calgary and Edmonton have indicated that a GC brings in some thereabouts of about $60 mill into the city. Someone who will work with the TigerCats on a location for a stadium rather than the current mayor who insisted strictly on one location, period. Well, he came in 3rd in the election and thank goodness for that. I'm looking forward to the day when the city of Hamilton can play host to our national championship proudly with a stadium deserving of it. No thanks to our current mayor who I hope I never see the likes again in the papers or local television or radio around here.
