    When you're not at home to witness the most important game of the CFL season, you do what you can to show your team all the support you can.

    There's a large crowd of Canadians here in the Bahias de Tangolunda area in southern Mexico who will take over a nearby bar called Alebrijes, and cheer on their favourites in 30C heat early this evening during the staging of the 106th Grey Cup from Commonwealth.

    Alebrijes means a mythical creature made from papier mache or carved from wood, and I think during my deep sea fishing excursion on Friday morning I may have landed one of those about 22 miles off the southern coast of Huatulco.

    Adorned with my Stampeders ballcap, after a furious 10 minute struggle, I finally managed to reel in a 27 pound Dorado (Mahi-Mahi), and if I can conquer a somewhat mythical creature while venturing into deep waters off foreign lands, surely the Stampders can harpoon a school of RedBlacks (whatever those are), on the frozen tundra in the foreign confines of Commonwealth Stadium later today... ;)

    This is where we all wanted them to be, and the Stampeders are there.

    Now finish the job.

    Reel in the big trophy! :D

    And may good fortune smile on the Stampeders this afternoon they way it did on me two mornings ago...;)

    I hope you'll all hear my cheerin' the boys on from way down south...;)

    ! Go Stamps Go (from sunny Mexico) !

    Thanks for your support.

    Appreciate it! :rolleyes:

    We don't have an "unlike" button on our website, but if we did, I'd have hit it on your post.

    Nobody likes a sore loser! :p

    Even if only for my wife's sake, I'd have been in this for the Bombers had Winnipeg won last weekend

    Go Stamps Go!

    Congrats guys. Boy you earned this one. The 16 is a nice touch as a reminder of what really should have been two years ago.

    Vindication at last!

    And the salt from the tears of the 'riders fans at Alebrijes during the game was more than enough to rim my margarita glass! :D

    2018 Grey Cup Champions...your Calgary Stampeders!

    Goodnight from Mexico!

    It was the Chinese year of the dog so score one for Ralph the mascot. Red and White Santa wins.

    Congrats Stamps, and Stamp's fans!! They say defence wins championships, and that couldn't be truer on a year when our offense was severly beaten up. Great game plan executed yesterday, there was never a point in this one that I was concerned we wouldn't pull it off. This season was just what the Dr ordered for the team....a little adversity to work though and overcome goes a long way to mental toughness.

    Congrats to the league MOP and Grey Cup MOP, Bo Levi, and to the Outstanding Canadian, Durant.

    My thoughts exactly.
    A great victory.
    McManus had a perfect open field tackle in the 4th qtr.
