2019 GREY CUP AWARDED TO CITY OF CALGARY


CALGARY - The CFL's showcase championship game will make its long-awaited return to Calgary when the Alberta city hosts the Grey Cup in 2019.

The league announced Calgary as the host city for the 107th Grey Cup at a press conference today.

Calgary hasn't hosted the game since 2009. It will be just the fifth Grey Cup held in Calgary, which also hosted in 1975, 1993 and 2000.

Alberta rival Edmonton is hosting the Grey Cup this year.

Last year's Grey Cup was held in Ottawa, with the Toronto Argonauts upsetting the Stampeders 27-24.

what a mess that GC will be in that dump of a stadium. I can imagine all the splintered butts from those plank benches for seating. It is an embarrassment to play our most important game of the year in the cfl at the crapiest stadium. I know Mr Red will brag up its upgrades, whatever they are but you cant call bringing in a few porta potties and smearing a bit of red paint on some splintered wood an upgrade....teeeeheee

I SURE REMEMBER THE LAST ONE THAT WAS HELD THERE...


THE GOOFIEST THING WAS AFTER THE GAME... THERE WAS A RIDICULOUS MASS OF PPL TRYING TO GET TO THE C TRAIN... AND THIS FIRE TRUCK STARTS COMING THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE SHOULDER TO SHOULDER PACKED STREET...

WHOEVER AS TRYING TO GUIDE HER THROUGH CLEARED A PATH TO MAKE A LEFT TURN THAT SHE FOLLOWED... BUT SHE ACTUALLY NEEDED TO GO STRAIGHT SO GOT 2/3 TURNED AND THEN ENDED UP BACKING UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MASS OF PEOPLE TO CHANGE HER ANGLE AROUND SO SHE COULD KEEP GOING STRAIGHT... PUSHING A FEW PPL ALONG BEHIND THE TRUCK... IT WAS A GONG SHOW!

Calgary ..nice place to live. To visit ... not so much.

But I am sure that it will be far ahead of Toronto in putting on a wonderful week of festivities. Let us all hope that beyond 2019 there will be a Grey Cup held again in Calgary and that it will be in a fabulous new stadium not unlike that beauty found in their poorer neighbouring province of Sask. All it would take would be a one year 2% provincial sales tax to provide the loan to get it done.

WHAT'S A FRICKIN FIRETRUCK AND THE GONG SHOW GOT TO DO WITH ANYTHING? THIS IS A SPORTS BLOG MOSTLY DEDICATED TO THE SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS FOOTBALL CLUB AND THE CFL.

In this day and age, if there are seats in the stadium where you can't see the video screen you shouldn't be hosting a Grey Cup.

No backs on seats, shockingly few bathrooms, terrible audio, brutal press box.

Man, it sure is nice to be able to say this now that we have Mosaic.
