Riderville 2012

When the Argos End Zone Crew aren’t out hobnobbing with the local society hags we like to mingle with fellow End Zoners. This being the Grey Cup and the crew being at Riderville it was an excellent opportunity to see how other CFL fans like to celebrate the Grey Cup.

Some people like to get drunk and run a savage burn on the locals. Remember Riderville loves a drunk but never burn the locals. These people didn’t follow the rules!  

Now look how we do it in the Argos End Zone. Make light conversation, find talking points, and lull them into a false sense of security. Look here – see Bill chatting with Rider and Stamps fans. Good work Bill! Argo’s Cheerleaders notice the 2013 calendar under Bill’s arm – yup we’re always pushing the brand.

    

Fred goes one step further than anyone expected and lays down a full horse whisper routine. Amazing Fred. You should have your own reality TV show and a national charity. We just need to find you a B list celebrity to promote your cause.

Can you spot the ultimate Rider fan? I can. 

All and all not a bad time spent by the End Zone Crew in Riderville and we have learned a very important lesson from our western friends. The Roughriders may a lose the game but they have never lost a party. Words that your Argos End Zone will try to live by.

Section 122-123 Ride the Rail! 

P.S.: We met a lot of Argo’s fans over the weekend including fellow 122’ers who were at Riderville. I did get pictures however they did not transfer over from the phone properly and were lost. I promise if you guys (and you know who you are) are in the End Zone next year I’ll do a write-up about your group.

 

Referees at the Grey Cup Parties

Just to show you that we have love for the Black and White here are a couple of shots we took with the Refs.

 

Now I know what you’re thinking – Has that Ref been drinking? I ask myself that all the time. In fact I sometimes yell it out during the game.

Wow – what a trophy! Bet you wish you had one too!

Grey Cup 2012: Instagram’d

We had a lot of fun this past Grey Cup Weekend here in Toronto… and have the Instagram photos to prove it. Enjoy:

Grey Cup Train in Toronto: Photos

One-seventh of Argos End Zone checked out the Grey Cup Train down at Exhibition Station today. Overall, really nicely done, and worth the visit. Your photo exhibit, below.

John Candy and Your Toronto Argonauts

I was stumbling through YouTube today watching various Argonauts clips and this one was on the sidebar. I’d never seen the TSN documentary about John Candy and the Argos: True Double Blue. Enjoy.
