This is just a thread that will help get us through these last few weeks of the offseason leading up to draft day.
I'm curious as to when everyone became a CFL fan here. (Year, age) and what was it that got them into OUR league.
Honestly, I felt that the CFL was a joke league and paid ZERO attention to it all my life until 2008 when I saw the "This Is Our League" video on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS1jCfg7Qxc
It must have been during the playoffs when I somehow saw this video because just a few days after seeing the video I watched the 96th Grey Cup. (Calgary vs Montreal in Montreal) It was the first CFL game I had ever watched...and since that Grey Cup I don't think i've missed more than 5 or 6 games in total. In 2009 I went to my first game in person. (BC vs Hamilton East Final)
So to answer my own question: I became a CFL fan in November 2008 at the age of 21 thanks to a YouTube video. To this day, that video still gives me goosebumps and chills. Seriously.
Now let's hear YOUR CFL origin story. :rockin:
