So, last Christmas I asked my brother to get me an Edmonton Eskimos hat. After searching the entire city of London, he could only find one, and unfortunately it was an adjustable one. I hate adjustable hats, so he didn't bother getting it.
When my birthday came up last month and people started asking me for gift ideas, I wasn't sure what I wanted. Then it dawned on me, my sister lives in Alberta!!! I figured if anyone could find an Edmonton hat, it'd be her.
Well, with some help from Red (he gave me a couple stores for my sister to check), my sister was able to find a hat. It just arrived in the mail today. It's a pretty nice looking hat. Instead of describing it, I went to Jersey City's website and found it.
I couldn't find the coaches toque, though I did find the Jester toque... unless that's what you were referring to. That'd be pretty funny. :lol: I put it on my Christmas list. Hopefully it'll be under the tree.
My most prized possessions are three game worn Eskimo Jerseys I purchased at the end of the 81 season. The are Warren Moon's #1 in a Glass Picture frame along with a signed CFL promo card, Dan Kepley's #42 also in Glass with a CFL Card, Lastly Tommy Scott's # 22. My Mother was shocked at 17 I spent almost 350 on Jersey's and wanted Fennel's and Parkers. I am not sure what they are worth now although I would never sell them.
I wish the CF would start up Trading Cards again it might help appeal to younger fans.
My most prized gift this Christmas was my Sham-Wow underwhare lets me drink large amounts of beer at the games and not miss a play. After the game just wring them out and your good to go. :lol: :lol: :lol:
