Edmonton is the City of Champions Once Again!


Here's Mike Reilly, quarterback of the Edmonton Eskimos, hoisting the Grey Cup in victory after yesterday's game! Edmonton won the championship game 26-20, although the Ottawa Redblacks certainly didn't make it easy by taking an early first quarter lead.

Looking forward to the victory parade here in Edmonchuk in a couple of days or so!


P.S. Mayor Iveson and City Council -- it's time to restore our signs and put the slogan back!

My NFL team the Carolina Panthers are currently undefeated, I think the win record is 11-0 so far. They usually do so-so to sorta good every year, so I'm hoping they make it to the Superbowl. It'll probably be them vs the Patriots

I thought the term "eskimo" was considered an ethnic slur, no? Parades are fun...unless you're the guy who has to clean up afterwards.

Congratulations Edmonton on being the best at the Sportsball. Or whatever sports/ball combination it was this time.

Well, you know what we say here in the states, it's not a championship until the rioting starts.

Willym said...

Well okay our Redblacks lost but it was - they tell me 'cause what the hell do I know from feetsballs - a tight game. I love tight games!

Congratulations Edmonton..... And I even smiled when I said it.

A couple of decades ago the only TV I received was Canadian. For ten years, nothing but Canadian news, entertainment, and sports on the only 2 channels I could get. I still miss it.

I didn't even know the Grey Cup was on.

Insomniac's Attic said...

Hooray, Edmonchuk! And I really mean that - no rivalry here because I couldn't care less about football. Sacrilege, I know. I'm more of a hockey person - sort of. ;)

Hi human, Debra,

Well done to the Edmonton Eskimos! I love the CFL and the Grey Cup. Over in the UK, my human mentions the CFL and they just give him weird looks. Then again, he gets weird looks all the time :)

What next, Oilers making the playoffs?

Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses,

Penny xx

Congrats!!! I'm so happy! My hubby goes in for sports, though he hasn't achieved anything yet, but I'm sure he will some day. This post made his day really. Thanks a lot!
