Championship Football Fever

Saturday, November 28, 2009
Less than 24 hours until Grey Cup 2009. Woooooo hoooooo! It's going to be a great day. I'll be up bright and early tomorrow morning making the chili, washing floors, doing laundry and getting stuff ready for my guests to show up. I've got a halftime quiz ready to go and a prize for the winner. I think I'm all set. Calgary has turned from red to green for the past week with Riders fans pouring in by the bus/car/plane load. Montreal is going to have a tough time hearing the plays being called given how load the Saskatchewan fans can be. I think it's going to be a great game.

The party this year had better be memorable because there won't be one next year. You see, I won't be at home. I'm not sure if I mentioned it before but one of my coworkers is a season ticket holder with the Eskimos. And the Grey Cup is being held in Edmonton next year. And...season ticket holders get first dibs on tickets for the big game. Guess who asked if I wanted to buy two tickets for Grey Cup 2010? That's right baby. I'm just waiting for the final word from the Admiral but it sounds like we're going to be going to the show. I can barely sit still.

With our luck though, it's going to be -30 and blizzarding next year. That doesn't bode well given that the seats we'd get would be in the upper level, exposed to the wild wintery elements. However, if it is, we'll bundle up, drink plenty of hot chocolate with Baileys, down a hamburger or two and lose our voices. I can't wait.
