Let's Go ARGOS !!

Well my friends, it is Grey Cup Sunday !!!   No open houses today.... just good ole' fashioned football !!
Toronto needs something to celebrate ... its been a while.
So jump on the Argo Bandwagon and join the party !!!

TORONTO – An epic battle between east and west is set to unfold in Canada’s largest city today, as the Toronto Argonauts face off with the Calgary Stampeders for the 2012 Grey Cup championship title.

More than 52,000 CFL fans from across the country are expected to pack into Toronto’s Rogers Centre for the 6 p.m. kickoff in the high-stakes 100th anniversary game.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi are among the dignitaries expected to be at the match, which will feature an anticipated half-time show with Canadian rock legend Gordon Lightfoot, teen idol Justin Bieber, pop star Carly Rae Jepsen and pop-punk band Marianas Trench.

Harper, who is originally from Toronto but whose political riding is in Calgary, has already announced that he’ll be cheering for a Stampeders win in the centennial game.

Even the two mayors have made a public bet, with the loser promising to donate his weight in food to a food bank and wear the winning team’s jersey to a council meeting.

Both the Argos and the Stamps have a lot on the line when the pigskin flies today !

Calgary hasn’t won a Grey Cup since 2008 and Toronto, struggling to increase its fan base, has not won the coveted trophy since 2004.

TODAY IS OUR DAY !!!   ITS ARGO DAY !!!   Get out and cheer on our Toronto Argos !
