For those of you not familiar with the Grey Cup, it is the ultimate prize/Holy Grail in the CFL...aka the Canadian Football League. This year, the 97th, the 2 teams competing are the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Montreal Alouettes and the game is being hosted and played right here in Calgary. From Thursday right until Sunday there is a big street party downtown 5 blocks from my house and it's fun. It is a sea of green and white right now, the colours of saskabushkySaskatchewan fans, also known as the "Rider Nation" ...they are a crazy bunch of fans which is why I like them! They get watermelons and carve them into football hemets which they wear on their heads...I didn't see any today but I will keep my eyes open all weekend and snap a shot.Apparently, it made the news (front page) that their is a watermelon shortage in Calgary!...LOL! My goal for the weekend is a watermelon helmet photo!!!
I took the pentax and went down for a looksee....
Here is some of the craziness.....

okay but how bad is it when you are listening to the sports update and they are talking about the Grey cup and the FIRST thought that occurs is "gee I wonder if the Calgarians of photography.ca will have pictures of it"

:rolleyes:
