I went downtown on Sunday afternoon with my buddy Tony to check out the Grey Cup tailgate party and I have to say, it was a lot of fun.
As I was waiting for him I saw a parade in the distance. So of course I went to take a closer look. Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, I was using my iPhone.
The Grey Cup fan parade down Bay street to Front.
And of course I decided to join in and follow along.
A quick stop along the parade route for a cheque presentation with the CFL Commissioner and CFL legend Doug Flutie.

Line up for the beer tent.
I am not a football fan and we didn't have tickets to the game, but being down there made us wish we had some. Great crowd, great atmosphere. In the end, a warm bar and some cold beers turned out to be the next best thing.
