    9 nights remain in this year of the horse and there are 9 chapters in my go stamps go book to read so I figure I'd read one chapter each night and have some fun going through Calgary football history.

    Chapter 1

    1. What link is there between the 1911 Calgary Tigers and the sinking of the Titanic in 1912?

    2. Who threw the first forward pass in Canadian football history for the Altomah-Tigers in 1929?

    3. Who were the first Americans to play for the Calgary Bronks in 1935?

    Should be easy for TM.

    1. Dunno for sure, but I suspect it might be the 1911 team's capture of the first Hugo Ross Trophy as Western Canada Rugby Football Union champions, and the drowning of the trophy's namesake a year later when the big boat hit a large chunk of ice somewhere east of Newfoundland.

    2. Gerry Seiberling

    3. Carl Cronin (as a player-coach) was probably one of 'em. Chuck McKenna?

    Right on all counts and you can add Oran Dover for question 3.

    Chapter 2

    4. What was the stamps regular season record in their first year of existence in 1945?

    Regular season was called on account of war.

    Playoffs only.

    2 wins against 1 loss...but the loss was in the final to Winnipeg, so no Grey Cup berth...:(

    I phrased that last one wrong. I meant the first to play 150 'consecutive' games in Harry Langford. My bad.

    Chapter 5

    10. First player to run for a mile in a season.

    11. The player who knocked Ron Lancaster out in game 2 of the 1970 west final

    12. The player whose helmet actually knocked the ball out of Leon McQuay's hands as he slipped and fell in the '71 final

    13. Granny Liggins (for the record, I hated that trade)

    14 Not sure about it, but a nagging recollection says it might have been Pinball Clemons

    Yes it was indeed Pinball.

    Chapter 7 is a juicy one with 1992-98-01 Grey Cups in it.

    15. Where were 10,000 Chicken Ryckmans given away in a game won by Calgary 37-19 in 1992

    16. Where did Sig Gutsche own a Hard Rock Cafe while he acquired the Stamps in 1998?

    17. Where did Greg Frers work in the offseason before getting the call from Wally on his birthday august 4 2001?

    15. Failed Lions promo in Vancouver (I think it had something to do with Ryckman's signing of Doug Flutie who left BC during the previous off-season as a free agent)

    16. Eau Claire district in DT Calgary (but I should add he took over as owner in April, 1996 rather than in 1998)

    17. Canada Post

    Right, Murray Pezim of the Lions was simply pissed at Ryckman and tried to get back at him and utterly failed.

    Chapter 8 is short and sweet on The F-troop regime.

    Nice and easy today

    18. Who was Matt Dunigan's best rookie in 2004? Ten years later he'd wrap up his career with a second stampeder ring.

    18. "Nik-olo-dimes" (and, maybe, just maybe, he ain't done yet...;))

    Well this was a great way to end this 2014 for me. The year of the horse actually ends February 18 then it's the year of the Goat which might mean the Cubs will finally reverse their curse and win the World Series as predicted in Back to the Future 2.

    Final questions chapter 9.

    19. Which disease did Jamie Crysdale's daughter Grace had to overcome?

    20. Which condition afflicted Jay McNeil's son Cuyler?


    On that note I wish all stamps fans here a happy new year.

    Go Stamps Go! :potato:

    19. Leukemia

    20. Autism

    And, on those two cheery notes, thanks for this thread, deuvl, (on which I guess you and I were the sole active participants)! :p

    Happy New Year to you and to all the other members of the StampsFans.com family! :D

    On that note I did make a 20 dollar donation to the Society for treatment of autism of Calgary.

    I was 20 when Doug Flutie wore 20 in '92 and I was 16 when Rain Man came out so Grey Cup 102 makes sense. :wacky:

    I actually plan on driving to Cincinnati in May to see a Reds game on my birthday and buy some boxer shorts at a K-Mart there. :snap:

    deuvl, what Go Stamps Go book are you referring to? I have the Years of the Horse by Daryl Slade. Is there another book out there on the Stamps like that?

    Here's my trivia question: Which player on the Stamps (1968-1969) had the name sake of a two wheeled passenger cart pulled by hand throughout Asia in the 19th century? What number did he wear?
