Will there be a Grey Cup sendoff rally prior to the team leaving for Cowtown?

If so, I know I would be there. :smiley:

Funny you should say that as I was just watching the 2013 send off leaving Jarvis Street on YouTube.

500 fans that year.

Hope we have more fans this time!

Please post if anyone knows where and when. Thanks!

Tomorrow at noon THF


Head down to Tim Hortons Field tomorrow at 12 noon and cheer on your Tiger-Cats as they board the team bus to head to Calgary for the 107th Grey Cup!

Meet your fellow Ticats fans at Gate 3 at 12 p.m. tomorrow dressed in Black & Gold!


Tomorrow, November 19, 2019
12 p.m.
Gate 3 - Premium Seating Entrance at Tim Hortons Field - on Melrose Ave.
Lot B (behind the Tim Hortons Field videoboard). No parking on Melrose Ave.

Thanks Crash.

I have to call my doctor’s office to tell him I might a little bit late for my 1:00 appointment, if that is okay with him.

How dare you put your health ahead of your team!

Good news! Ivy (my doctor’s receptionist) switched it to 1:15 so I should be able to get there on time (as long as the team bus is not late leaving). ?

Good. That’ll give them enough time to perform your routine DRE!;D


I remember the pre- game rallies at the Connaught back in the day . Today, I don’t think the condo occupants would appreciate our presence. :wink:

Pat Lynch ( the really old guy)

Some buds and I promised to meet each other on the 25th anniversary of the '72 rally at the same spot where we stood on that night for the rally.

I was the only one there in ‘97… :’( :’( :’( :’( :’( :’( :’( :’( :’( :’( :’( :’( :’( :’( :’(

Sounds like a script idea for “The Big Bang? ;). Did you have a “mickey? in your coat pocket for a wee nip between introductions and reminiscing?

Figured we could ‘pick our spot’ after we met. May have JUST located one of the guys… lost connection for over 25 years.

Perhaps I should call him up, reintroduce myself, and take him to the rally tomorrow. ?

That would be one down.
Anyone know what Brian Blazek has been up to in the last 47 years?

They are off


This brings back fond memories of standing in front of old city hall in my colours with my dad when the cats returned after beating the Pegg 32 - 7 , in 1957 I was 9 at the time.

That’s me holding the cutout of the cup (about midway on the right hand side. The cup is in black and gold naturally). I made sure nobody touched it. The reverse side being plain white, I plan on bringing it to the parade next week to get some players to autograph it. What a memento. BTW I managed to get to my doctor’s appointment on time. ;D

Gives me goosebumps watching that. I wish I was there!! The players must have been pumped with all the fans sending them off ??

It was me:

“Hey,” called over a fan to Breen, “I don’t see any tinfoil on your head.”

With apologies to Chris Breen.

Hey Mike. When scrolling through the pictures is that you with the long beard holding the black Grey Cup coming home sign?

That sign is nice. Did you make it yourself or can it be purchased? :slight_smile:

Edit: Oops, Sorry, I think you were holding the yellow cup. My apologies. :slight_smile:
