So I made my first trip to Hamilton on Saturday for the Edmonton/Hamilton game. I went with my brother, and the first thing we did was walk through the CFL Hall of Fame. It was pretty cool. It was interesting to look at some of the old equipment and all the different awards and trophies. I took a few pictures while we walked around. I bought an Eskimos flag from the gift shop and chatted with the people there.
After that we stopped at Ivor Wynne quickly to get our tickets, and then we headed to National Sports. Unfortunately, they didn't have much CFL gear, just a few hats. So we headed to the Tiger Town Store. There I bought a Ti-Cats hat. It's all black with the tiger on the front.
Then we headed back to the stadium to catch the game. Walking to the stadium was fun. We decided to cut through the tail gate party. Boy, was that a mistake. I had to take the walk of shame while Ti-Cats fans booed me mercilessly. :lol: When we got to the stadium we got some food and found our seats. It was a fun game, and it was definitely a little weird. Unlike on TV, you could see the entire field, and it was interesting to see the players stand around during the commercial breaks. Oh, and you guys have some fine looking cheerleaders. I just wish the announcer would've mixed up his comments a little. Each time they came out, he'd say something about them having the best moves, blah, blah. :lol:
The rain was insane. It started pouring in the third quarter. It poured a few times. My brother and I were soaked to the bone, but we toughed it out with the rest of the fans. And then we laughed at all the Ti-Cats fans cursing the Argos after the game. I'd love to go to the Labour Day game just to listen to the Ti-Cats fans abuse the Argos. :lol:
The next game we'll be going to is on Sept 18 when the Stamps come to town. I'll be cheering for the Ti-Cats when we go to that game.
Since we can't post pictures, I'll just leave this link: It's a picture of me at the end of the game. You can tell my shirt is drenched. :lol:http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/421/cflgame024.jpg
