I have been to 1 greycup and 1 final
Was at 94 GreyCup in Vancouver. I live 4 hours away. To watch last second fieldgoal beat Baltimore Stallions.
Also at I think 1988 West final- in Edmonton to watch Eskies crush Leos. It was -30 or something like that and lots of snow-
froze and of all things left the lights on my car and a family waited to give us a boost. He said "we feel sorry for you killing your lions, and now you have a dead battery!"
I said I'm an Esks fan first :lol:
I've been to 2 Grey Cups (95, 03) and 1 West final (07)
I have been to a playoff game in Calgary in 06, although it was the West semi.
Unfortunately I just don't have enough friends who are big enough fans to take the week off to soak in the Grey Cup atmosphere. If I'm going to go to a Grey Cup, I'm going to do it right and take in the week long festivities as well.
That's the only way to do it. I go with my Dad and two brothers and a couple straglers that are basically family now. It is always a good time. We make it out there thursday and shut down Riderville every night.
Though I've been a fan for as long as I can remember (since the early '60s), this will only be my second Grey Cup. I previously saw the Eskies beat the Als 17-6 at the Big Owe in 1979 at the 67th Grey Cup. One of my favourite memories of all cups was All-Star Waddell Smith's waving goodbye touchdown in that game.
