I thought it would be interesting to find out when and why you became a fan of a certain team. I'll start.
Twas 1968, living on an airforce base ( Beasejour Manitoba) I was 8 yo. I watched my first CFL game between the Lions and the Stamps.
I loved the horse on the helmet right away and the names of Peter Liske, Herm Hands, Larry Robinson, Rudy Linterman, Terry Evanshen and the likes stuck with me. My brother of course became a Lions fan.
At half time and after the game we would go outside and recreate the game, of course we inserted ourselves as the stars. Even as the younger brother I would kick his but. (-:
A dam horse on a helmet, go figure. And the rest is history,
Go Stamps Go.
