Hey all, I'm gizmo fan 2, age 17, net alias attributed to one of the greatest kick returners who ever lived and my favourite Eskimo growing up. I've lived in Edmonton all my life, I started going to games in 92 when I was 6, since then have grown not only to love the Eskimos but the entire CFL brand of football.
I'm graduating this year, not sure what I'll go into for university, chances are it will be at U of Alberta though. Hobbies...watching sports is definitely the major one, CFL's my favourite by far, but I also like hockey, lacrosse and soccer.
I've missed 1 home game in each of the past 2 seasons, my goal this upcoming year is to make every single Esks game, home and road. I'm definitely planning to make a road trip to Saskatchewan, and probably BC and Calgary as well. East of that will be harder...transportation is not a problem, I have connections in the industry, but accommodation and tickets will probably be more difficult, as I fit the definition of "poor student" pretty well. Time could also be an issue, but I'll see what happens.

Anyway, looking forward to hopefully meeting some of you this season.

Ya. It will be tough getting tickets in Toronto or Hamilton. :devil:
But seriously. Good luck in your quest. I still haven't seen Molson Stad. Great goal :beauty:

:clap: Good goal. Go see the Esks get killed at Taylor Field (we may have issues at Commonwealth, but Taylor Field's a different turf) :)

Thanks, GCG :beauty: . Yeah, I was thinking more tough to get tickets in Montreal than Toronto or Hamilton. :) Any Als fans know where one could go about acquiring Als tickets outside of Montreal?

Hahaha...nice try, but we just broke that jinx. (Grey Cup, anyone? :beauty: ) Plus, we're undefeated at TF in November...if you get a home playoff game next year against us, that will enter into it. :) However, I don't know if we would be undefeated there in that month if you played more games there during that time :devil: .

Name is Ron and I'm 43 and married to the lovely Irene. (Ya Hoagie ... IT"S TRUE!!! :) )

Was the biggest Argo fan on the Net from 1994-2002 posting under the handle "Argonut". Most prolific poster in Total-CFL history and claims to fame include the creation of the CFL Flatlanders literary series, the first Virutal CFL Fan Club site for the Greatest One ... The Wayne. And the host of the only John Huard fan site in existance.

In 2003 decided to become the greatest fan of all teams when I took the 13th man handle of Cancflfan.

After a year of unbiased support of all 9 teams in a truthful manner, my 2004 handle was born to reflect that.

I go to games in both Hamilton and Toronto.

That we do, but you never said anything about regular season games...you only mentioned the Taylor Field turf, which we won on.

The Bombers are someone's close second?? :o


Don't forget, I started following the Bombers in 1967 seriously & moved to Calgary in 1990 so I have a few more years of memories in Winnipeg. But the 1990's were awesome if you were a Stamps fan.
