Contrary to popular belief, the most dangerous animal is not the lion or tiger or even the elephant. The most dangerous animal is a shark riding on an elephant, just trampling and eating everything they see.

I've been to games at every stadium in the CFL, and the vast majority of fans are great. (multiple visits to every stadium except Sask and Mtl (just once in each of those).

I've taken some ribbing, but am smart enough to be a calm visiting fan. I wear my colours, but I don't escalate situations. If you react poorly, you will get it back worse.

The key is to be able to recognize the difference between friendly banter and people trying to provoke you into a bad situation.

There isn't a stadium that I wouldn't return to.

Classic 'Hunky Bill' pic, BBBob! Obviously the new age Upchuckers have no clue as to who he is or what effect that Bill has had on their Ukie culture and heritage. Pretty sad, really, because Hunky used to be an icon in Garlic City.

Typical Edmonton.

We knew Hunky Bill in Winnipeg where I'm from. Lots of Ukrainians there. I'm a 50 per center... He was revered... ;)
