After being re-introduced to the CFL, thanks to the boredom and immaturity of the NFL, Now I need to find a team to adopt
Being from Iowa in the Midwest, the closest CFL teams to me are the Riders and the Bombers. As soon as I get to look at the 2009 CFL schedule, I plan on coming up north to hopefully catch both teams at home. I figure, if players can be imports, why can't fans?
The other day I made my first post here and the responses have been very helpful. I spent most of the weekend on tsn.ca watching CFL games. I'm still trying to learn the fine points of the game. I was watching one of the games and I got to see my first rouge LOL. I know that may sound petty to some of the hard-core fans but for me, a brand new fan of the CFL, every simple play is a learning experience.
I've never been to Regina nor Winnipeg, so any advice I can get about those two cities will be most helpful. I plan on coming up during the early part of the season while the weather is still nice. I hope to get the full experience of the CFL while I'm there.
Once again thank you for the warm welcome to the forum and good luck to all the teams in the Grey Cup playoffs.
