We sure did have a great time! Only one thing would have made it better, and I'm sure you know what that is.
Being from the Philippines, Mrs MadJack detests the cold, so the only way she'd go to a Grey Cup is when it's held in a dome; but she enjoyed this trip so much that the possibility exists that I will be able to talk her into going to Calgary next year.
Not a great possibility mind you, but one never knows...............
…the Mrs. and you are looking in fine form MadJack…Must’ve been a blast…and yes i did notice the best picture of the bunch…your lady with the Bomber shirt and helmet…lol…Dunigan always looks very personable…i wouldn’t let him get too close to my Mrs. though :lol: Some of these CFL greats, look quite happy to get into the pics with you…I guess they were only too happy, to get the opportunity, to boost their profile… :lol: Good-one MadJack… :thup:
I love your photo’s.
I’m especially impressed with you meeting Hal Patterson.
My father is a huge fan of Patterson, Etcheverry etc. since he and his 5 brothers used to go see Hal play with the Alouettes, and I actually took him to a Ti-Cat event a few years ago that Prince Hal was supposed to be at, but he cancelled due to bad health.
I’m glad to see that Hal seems to have made a good recovery anyway.
I was in Montreal and had a great time on Grey Cup weekend. Unfortunately I don’t get to make it to too many fan type events as usually all the buddies want to head straight to the booze after waking up.
Yes, hands down meeting Prince Hal was the highlight of the weekend for me. I have been an Als' fan from the late 50s, so Etcheverry and Patterson (and then Dixon and Clark) represent very fond memories for me. After that infamous trade, Patterson came to live in Hamilton (where I was born and raised), and he lived just a block and a half away from me.
