While our American neighbours had a long weekend to celebrate their Thanksgiving we were celebrating our annual football final game, the Grey Cup, which pits the west against the east of a very wide country. The Grey Cup was started in 1909 by Earl Grey, then the Governor General and King's representative to Canada. Originally it was called rugby-football. See the picture of the silver cup.
The game was not played from 1916-1919 hence the mismatch in 100 years to be celebrated.
Canadian football rules are slightly different than the American rules. The crowds go a little crazy cheering for their favorite
team. These must be Toronto Argonaut fans....blue and white.
Here are the Toronto Argonauts streaming onto the field before the start of the game.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have to guard the silver cup while it is transported and displayed.
Toronto Argonauts won.
