Alright, so I think this thread is necessary at this point in time. Diesel, FF, E4E and I have been discussing various meet & greet type situations and we think one of the problems that might arise is that we don't know each other well enough. It's always an "interesting" situation if you're going to meet people who you only know online.

So Muley69 (thanks bud) had the idea that we should get to know each other better by posting a picture. So that's what this is for. If you don't have a picture, at least give us some details about yourself. Your name? What do you do? Married? Kids? etc.

I put this in the Eskimos forum so everyone sees it. I hope to see y'all participating.

I shall start:

My name is Phil. I'm 22 and a student at Grant Macewan in the BCom transfer program. I hope to transfer to the UofA after next year. I've worked for IBM and Intuit Canada in the tech field but hated it so I decided to go back to school. Right now I'm looking for a part-time job to pay my way through school...

No girlfriend at the moment, although I'm always looking. I live in the Londonderry area with my sister and my dog Payton. I drive a '91 white daytona that used to have a killer sound system until it was jacked. Well, that's a good start. NEXT!

Oh, and here's a really bad picture. This was taken in Brazil, my brother is on the left and I'm on the right. We were on top of the roof of a boat and it was freaking HOT!

I'm 38. I've been married to my lovely wife for almost 11 years. We have two wonderful daughters into dance, ball and soccer.
I'm a member of Edmonton's news media and live in the west end.
I've been a fan of the Green & Gold ever since I can remember. Love this site, it's great to connect with other Eskimo die-hards!

Hey everyone,

My name's Andrea, and besides being an avid Esks Fan, I work as a private tutor. I absolutely love my job; I make my own hours, I work out of my own home, and hell, I can sleep in until noon (or later)! :azzangel:

There are some disadvantages to my job as well, such as enduring alternating crazy times (like right now) and quiet spells. I have a teaching certificate, but I much prefer to work one-on-one with students; it's much more satisfying to build that personal rapport with people rather than teaching to a mass of uncooperative students.

Besides tutoring, I also work as an editor through the University, and in my spare time (what little of it exists), I write short stories and poems. I'm hoping to one day get something published.... :blackey:

Oh, and one more thing. I'm not from Edmonton; actually, I reside in London, Ontario. So why am I an Esks and Oil fan? Well, my mom's side of the family came from Edmonton, so I grew up watching those teams. Last summer, I met a bunch of the Esks players (including Mobes; I'm not sure if he remembers though) in Burlington, where my parents live. In case some of you on here haven't met any of the guys, I can assure you that they're all awesome! :color:

Edit: Here's my pic...finally!

okay........now that I'm at home I can post the only pic I have of myself on my comp, it was taken a few years back when I got married, it is likely the best pic I have of myself as well......


Thank you, thank you, Fishman.


The ONLY picture of me that i currently have on this comp is my wedding photo's. Here is one of me, and likely the best one I've had taken in a LONG time. (Hope the wife doesn't mind me posting her face on this site either...) I was worried about how dumb it would look to post a wedding photo on a CFL website...but since you've broken the mold, I feel that it's okay if I do the same.


Name is Dave, I'm 25 (as on last Wednesday) and currently live in the downtown area of town, near the Molson Canadian Brewery by no coincidence. Went to the U of A and earned a specialized degree in Math and Economics and have stayed ever since.

I work in the pensions industy, and I do have a story about my job as it relates to the CFL. One day Allen Pitts phoned our office with a question about his CFL pension...and this was right around the time that Flutie was about to break his yardage record and the Stamps were trying to fly in Pitts to "hand off the torch" as it were. (You may remember that Allen declined).

Regretably, I wasn't the one that had the conversation with him...

What can I tell you about myself...

I was born and raised in Edmonton (not too many can say that anymore), and have been an Eskimo fan since 1972. I fist started attending home games as a member of the old 'Woodwards Knothole' gang back in 1974 and have been hooked ever since. I got my first season tickets in 1980 and have been a regular attender since.

I played in the Edmonton Touch Football League for 12 seasons until I was forced to retire because of a knee injury. And just like a player that can't play the game anymore, I took up coaching. I coached bantam football in St. Albert for seven years (including two with Tom Higgins) before moving to the West Edmonton Raiders last year.

I also covered the Eskimos for 'The Rouge' magazine (R.I.P) from 1997 through the 2002 season. My fondest memory from that time was going to Calgary to cover the Grey Cup for the magazine and having complete media access. This meant attending the closed practices (to the public anyway), being at the Chrysler Awards and of course in the Lions locker room after they won the cup.

Well i prefer to keep my identity to myself, i grew up outside the city, played for the Huskies for a couple of years before going on a football scholarship to Eastern Washington, stayed for two years befor realizing it was not the place for me, moved back to the huskies for a year before going to the University of Western Ontario. Signed as a free agent in the league (in the east) got hurt in camp, ended up on the practice roster for a year played the next year (severlly limated action) called it quits and finished school at the U of A and now work for the federal government in edmonton. By the way, i played Oline. Really involved in coaching football in the city.

Hey gang, those of you that know me ... know me. Can't tell you my real name... matter of national security.

Been an Esk fan for longer than I can remember. In fact, I learned to throw a spiral long before I learned how to skate.

Born and raised in Edmonton. Grew up west of the museum. Went to St. FX. 2 degrees from UofA. Lived S of campus... then around Bonnie Doon.

Moved to Toronto in '95. Living out in Oakville now (Andrea... how often do you go to 'Cats or Argo games? You'll have to hook up with us when the Esks come out!) Still have my season's tix at Commonwealth - Sec X, row 30, seats 1-2... had 'em since the stadium opened. Turn them over to my nephews... the tradition continues.

Not married (long story - requires drinks). No kids - unless you count Arrow the wonder dog - and I do. Drive a Jeep Liberty... it's not an SUV, it's a Jeep. I take if off road and get scratches and stuck in the mud. I laugh at 'grocery getters'. I also have a '67 GTO convertible for when I want to show the tuners what real horsepower means... besides... none of them will ever beat my record for bikini clad girls sitting on the back of the back seat!

I'm a PR dude... been doing that for over 10 years now. Actually, I do that as a freelancer now... get to set my own hours and vacations... can work out of client offices or home... but when I'm not working, I'm not making $$.

Other than off-roading, you can find me canoeing, hiking or inventing drinks. I'm a rabid skier (learned at Sunshine), into scuba and have joined a sailing crew. I love all things CFL (except the Thtampth) - infact my lawyer is an ex-player!

First photo is of True42, Eskinator, Ellis14 and me from last year - the 'power outage game'... I'm the one in the subtle Eskie shirt... I'm rather shy and reserved! Other photo is me and the one and only DRK from a few years back.

In closing a prediction...
GC '04... Esks vs Argos... EE takes it.
'nuff said.

Hi my name is Richard, some people call me Ricky, Rich or Rick, it doesn't really matter to me. I'm 20 years old, I am working full time as an electrical apprentice, Im in my second year now and have been doing it for just over a year. For the most part I like my job, work 7-4or5 everyday and its usually interesting and fun.

I've been browsing esksfans.com since september 03' but until this season I havent posted very much if at all. I guess I like to sit back and watch rather than speak out until I get comfortable.

I've been a season ticket holder for 3 years now, every year I have had different seats. I go with my Brother and his Wife and all 3 of us havent really found a spot that we really like. The first year we on the upper deck section T about half way, last season we were in section T row 35, this season we are in section T upper deck 10 rows from the rail.

I am an avid sports fan of the Edmonton Oilers and Eskimos, I have been for as long as I can remember. I used to play alot of sports in junior high and high school, but now I dont play any. In the winter I snowboard alot, usually go to the mountains at least once a month. I've always wanted to get onto an adult rec soccer team but lately Ive been too busy.

Anyways thats enough for now, I have only 1 picture to post, its from last year and the only one I have since my computer got wiped. Sorry about the bad quality, I had to crop the picture, it was too big.

Esk Reporter...What team did you play with in the Touch Football league? I played for about 14 or 15 years.

I am not sure how to post an image so I am going to try and use the url command to post a picture of me and my dog and see if that works.

Old enough to remember when CFL teams could OUTBID NFL teams for new players!! Actually, I'm just 40, but they were still doing that when I was a kid (no, really...).

Live in St. Catharines, ONT, but grew up in the Steeltown: Hamilton.

Been a CFL fan since '72 (hometown Grey Cup win? Fantastic!!), but been a die-hard, raving Ticat fan since '94!

Self-employed, small business entrepreneur, making all sports-related products (figurines, clocks/plaques, etc.). Especially football, and INCLUDING custom CFL items!! Hey, check me out (below) if you're curious. Very unique items no diehard CFL fan should be without (if I DO say so myself! :azzangel: ).

Who am I? The handle is Evil Dr. EE...formerly EskLen...real name Len.
I'm 27 and been a CFL fan for as long as I can remember...
last year I joined 13thman.com and created a fantasy game (also help iron out the details for the fantasy game played at 55yardline.net). Simply put I got overwhelmed by all the spreadsheet work so I let the game die with me.

Meanwhile, my wife is due in mid-July for our 1st baby together so I had to give up my season tickets this year(had them for 2 years) but fully plan to get them back for 2005.(got them :thup: )

Reasons, I joined this site...it gets a lot of mention at 13thman and being an Esk fan I can't say I know a single other Esk Fan!! My season ticket partner is my 6 year old stepson - - I'm hoping I get to meet other Esk fans, maybe have a cold beverage at halftime or something.

Man, the good times while being 18. I can finally work, make money, and get seasons tickets to the Esks and Oil. Well maybe not the Oil for a few years. Anyways I just graduated from HS in Westlock and am taking forest technologies at Northern Lakes. My family is huge, 9 people, 2 brothers and 4 sisters. My grandparents own Daisy Dollhouse, you might of seen it at Capilano or Northgate in the winter. Living in Flatbush is somewhat secluded but we have been going to Esks games for over 10 years. I can still remember the Labour Day rematch games at Commenwealth sitting in the old knothole gang section. I remember David Archer and his spear at some guy, after which sent them both over the table. A few years back me, my brother and a few of his friends went to a game where Pepsi was introducing Pepsi Blue. By the end of the game the 4 of us left the game with about 5 2L bottles each of the stuff and we had to walk about a km to the van because we were to cheap to pay for parking. Anyways that stuff was the best and I can't understand why somebody would not like Pepsi Blue. I was also at the Giz's retirement game where they unveiled his plaque on the wall of fame. Like I said ealier i am also a rabid Oilers fan. I look forward to many years of CFL football to go along with many GC's. See ya all at Commenwealth.

My name is Danny, as you can tell I'm a Stampeder fan. Now, hold your boos for a second, because I'm just here to post and have fun. Besides, I probably won't be around that much. You will probably notice me talking trash, best idea would be to ignore me. ;) Thats about all, g'day and Go Stamps Go!

07-09-2004, 05:44 PM
Well I'm Stamphater (aka. drew, andy, droodles, hockey bum, chalupa, caribou, or any other stupid nicknames you wanna come up with.)

I live in a small town near Calgary and have Stampeder season tickets. I am 19 and gonna go to SAIT next year and go into journalism. I work part-time in a Liquor store, which needless to say is sweet! I love the Guitar and play it all the time. I still have yet to meet anyone here yet, hopefully that changes sometime down the line.

No GF right now, and I drive a Corolla. I'm not sure how to get a picture on here, perhaps someone can help me? Thats about all their is to know about me. Oh yeah, I have a really crappy computer that takes 10 minutes to get one take down.

07-13-2004, 04:18 PM
Well I am still pretty much a computer dummy, so I still don't know how to post a picture here, but here are a few things about me.

My name is Jamie. I am 34 and have lived in Edmonton most of my life. I work as a professional basketball and sailing instructor, which means 1/3 of the time I am all over western Canada and the States, the other 2/3 I am at home with my beautiful wife and 4 month old son.

I appreciate having this opportunity to go on about the CFL with you guys because I love to analyse and theorize things to death sometimes (must be the coach in me), and my family and friends just won't put up with that as much as I would like.

I would certainly be up for any future get togethers, schedule permitting.

Big confession....... I've never been to a game......... :eek: I have watched a couple, and I plan to attend my first game in a couple of weeks, but how did I get here...... ???

I have noticed a couple of the players who live in my building and have had opportunity to say hi from time to time, and thought it might be cool to get to know the team and sport better.

So...... be gentle...... it's my first time.... ;)

Hello Everyone.

I come by way of the CFRN article I saw.

My name is Arthur, I'll answer to almost anything as long as it's not foul. Well, actually I'll answer to most of that too.

I'm 32, I work with computers... networks and the internet mainly. I live East of Edmonton most of the time and on the West end some of the time. I've been going to games since I can remember. My dad has had seasons tickets forever. I now have my own set and haven't missed a one. Funny how when it rains, you find out who's really a fan though :confused:

I drive a wanna-be 4x4 for work, but when it's time to get muddy it's the "Fordx4"... my 1979 Ford F150 with a 460 etc. etc. It's a wreck, but it has never left me stranded, and loves to be abused. On weekends you might find me cruising whyte or jasper in my '72 mustang. (not bad for a Geek Hey) :p I obviously like my vehicles, have skated since I could walk and will do pretty much anything outdoors... camping, water skiing, snowboarding... whatever. SCUBA and skydiving are next on my list.

That's it for now.

Hi all!

I live for the CFL & Esks.... That says it all!
I'm a season ticket holder over in Section L every year except for this year. I'm only in town for the game on July 17th. Off to Afghanistan with my unit at the end of the month. No CFL for me.... BRUTAL!

Anyways, i'll really have to out do myself this game (to make up for the ones i'll miss!)

Just thought i'd say hey all!


Sorry, no pic of me showin skin or anything..

Back in 81 or 82 I lived in Edmonton for a year ... winters to cold out there for me .... we don't have to shovel rain out here :lol:

I am presently trying to make plans to get my butt out to Alberta with a bunch of the crew from Lionbackers.com to catch the Riders and Esks then roll down the highway to watch the Lions chew up the Stampeders

Hi to all! I am also a newcomer via cfrn. I am 43 years old, married, 3 kids. We live in Westlock and have been season ticket holders since 1978. Actually we now have 4 generations going to the football games. I have missed only one game since we got our seasons tickets and that was when our youngest daughter was born (bad timing :D). I am not so great with the computer yet and couldn't figure out how to add the pic.

Hi! My names Jon, I'm 22, and moved here with my girlfriend from Peace River when I was 18 - the first day was so cool and I wasn't born in Edmonton but consider myself an Edmontonian through and through, and proud to be. I love this city and it's people. Overall Edmonton is the best sports city in Canada imo, has more culture and heart than any other city I've been to, and is a great place to live! I take alot of pride in this city.

Well, I've been a huge Oilers fan all my life, and I am making an effort to learn about football as well. I could probably tell you anything you need to know about hockey, but not the CFL, but I think getting new fans is great! :)

I'm not a bandwagon fan, I really want to make a serious effort to learn, plus it's cheaper, ALOT cheaper, than Oilers games. When the Roadrunners come here I am going to support them too! :)

Hi all,

Another newbie posting for the first time, and daring to introduce themselves. Actually, I'm not a true "newbie" -- I believe I was a member when the site first started up last summer, but then my participation went by the wayside. And I moved. A long-time lurker on total-cfl (not much these days) and I catch up on 13thman.com when I can.

Anyway, I'm a lifelong Esks fan who grew up in Edmonton. U of A grad, southsider. One-time Esk season-ticket holder. I remember the days when the only seats you could get were row 70 in the expansion southeast corner from Safeway because there were 50,000 season ticket holders (and that was for, like, a Hamilton game). I've even seen a game in Clarke Stadium (OK, fine, it was a Golden Bears game). Yes, I'm a diehard Oil fan, too.

But I'm now living down Highway 2 in hated Cowtown. Don't worry, there's no chance any Stamper fan will ever convince me to ever convert. The only fans that would have stood even a remote chance (only because they're so persistant and they have such a blind love for their team) would've been 'Rider fans, but they were never ever close.

As I alluded to, I've lived elsewhere in the west -- all four provinces, in fact.

But it's nice to back within an easy drive of Commonwealth (looking forward to my first crack at a home Esks game this year Aug. 29th. Yay!). And I even have Labour Day off, so... :thup:

And now, a picture. So many Esk-related ones to choose from. Hmm... how about a Kay Stephenson-era classic shot? Hope it ain't too dark. Anybody guess which game? It's a notable one. The year should be easy to figure out, of course. :lol:

Looking forward to talking with you all.

Hey all CFLnut here.

Been a Eskimo fan all my life. The Riders are my second pick for a teem mostly cause my grandma was a Rider-Prider, and she taught me to love the CFL.

I'm 28, live in Edmonton. work as a Shipper / Reciver in a wearhouse. And am passing on my love for our game to my nephews.

Favorite saying "Better dead then Red". :lol:

Some of you may know me from 13thman.com. I'm Marty and while I'm a Renegades fan, my favourite team in the West (hence my second-favourite team in the league) is the Eskimos. I've always respected the franchise and believe that it's the way a CFL franchise should be. Lots of players on teams past and present that are my favourites too (Gizmo Williams, Willie Pless, Tracy Ham, Damon Allen, Singor Mobley, etc.).

I really like the set-up here, guys. Very nice look. All the best to everyone here. Apologies that I don't have a pic with me. I need to upload a pic I have of me with the Grey Cup and a member of the 2002 champion Alouettes.

Hi folks,

Another newbie here. I have been posting all over the place as Nanook. I had heard about this site and finally took a look. Have I ever been missing out! :eek:

I'm a season ticket holder, born and raised in Edmonton. I joined the Airforce in 85. I was stationed in Edmonton for 12 years in three different Squadrons (Hercules, Twin Otter, Twin Huey's and Griffon). I now live in Cold Lake. I belong to a Hornet Squadron. I am set to retire in 402 days (but who is counting) and plan on an after degree at the U of A in Education. I plan on teaching high school science and I'll flight instruct during the summer months.

I have a wife and two small children with a third on it's way. My 8 year old daughter has been going to games since she was five. My wife rarely gets to go anymore.

I was Giz's escort last year when we took him for a Hornet ride. It was awesome! We had a BBQ for him at one of our houses and I got all of my bobbleheads signed. I took him on his seat course (how to get out in a hurry) and I strapped him in (the ankle stirrups almost didn't fit him). He had a blast. He truly is the fastest man in the CFL. We took him over Mach 1. :D

In 93 I was lucky enough to attend 18 Eskimo games including the Western Final and Grey Cup in Calgary. We just happended to have a Herc in just about every away game city that year. I felt very fortunate. I drove to the Calgary games.

I look forward to contributing to this site! :thup:

Name is KnuckleChucker. I am a member of the Eskimos Fun Team (Guys who chuck the footballs when they score). So in advance let me apologize for not singling you out of the 50,000 other people and stop everything I am doing to give you a $3 football.

Now that that is out of the way I am a huge Eskies fan and love being at the games rain or shine to support the eskies.

Go by the handle Mean Green. 35yrs old and have spent them all bleeding Rider green. However, in the end it is about the CFL and some of the Eskimo fans I met last yr at Grey Cup were true classy ambassadors of their team and the Spirit of Edmonton hospitality room was a blast. :thup:

Hey Everyone, I'm new here as well, I actually found out about this from someone who posted on Esks.com Message board, and I'm glad I took a extra moment to look up this place!
To tell you a little bit about myself(I'll post a pic soon) My name is Charmaine, I'm 27, born in Edmonton, moved away when I was 5 to that little city Northeast of here called Fort McMurray and just recently moved back to Edmonton 3 years ago. I've always been an Eskies fan, however hockey was my main choice of sport until I moved here and got Eskie season tickets and now I'm hooked on Football for life! I use to work for the Jr A hockey team in Fort Mac as an Ass't Manager and had the opportunity to witness first hand what it's like to be part of an organization to host and win a National Championship. I was studying to be an Athletic Therapist until I ran out of money, so I'm taking some time off from school and working and saving up some money. As far as cars go, i drive a 2004 Dodge SX 2.0 sport in that new flashy blue color and recently had the windows tinted with an OCC decal on the front window, so if you see me driving around the west end or downtown, feel free to wave or honk! My car is my baby and I'm slowly adding new things on to it, I think spinners are my next big buy! And my fav eskie player in Scott Robinson- why you ask? Because I think he has talent, and unforchantly hasn't had the chance to show it cause there is so much talent on the team already at that position. And he's a great guy off the field as well and I always like cheering for the underdog.

Hi there. Im a 23 year old married guy from Regina, but I am definately the biggest Eskimos fan around this city. The Esks.com site is easily making me bored with immature comments about the Oline, the Dline, whether or not Ricky Ray will come back etc, etc. Ive heard good and bad things about this site and although its well after the season, Im only making my first post now. But heres to many more posts and getting along with many other fellow Eskimo fans. And last but not least heres to Grey Cup in 2005!!

Hi all,

With the temporary demise of 13thman, I've wandered over here. I'm Glen (big surprise), 39 years old, graduated from the U of A in math (same as Muley!) back in 1986. I taught math at a small college in Edmonton from 1990-99, but took a job down here at a liberal arts college in Vermont and have been here ever since. Been cheering for the Esks ever since I was a kid, even during the dark years when I lived in Vancouver (1978-82, 1986-90), right next to the Lions' training facility. Boy I took some *poop* for being an Oiler/Esk fan. Married, three lovely kids. Really hard to find CFL info down here; thank goodness for SectionW's webcasts this year.

Hello there,
I am a 30 year old, football fan. I was born and raised in Edmonton and was introduced to football at a very early age. I started going to games with my sisters in the Woodward's Knothole Gang and have never looked back.

Anyway, that is my story.

Hey, all

I'm a 35-year old Eskimo fan since I was 6; former season ticket holder that has moved to Victoria, and is grateful that so many Eskie games are now broadcast on TV!

my username comes from my Eskimo football card collection; sort of my own personal "holy grail" as those cards are extremely hard to come by, as are most CFL cards in general! (anyone know where I can pick up a 1995 Jed Roberts card?!)

Yikes.. just caught a glance at my "time spent in forums".. guess it was about time for a first post. ;)

anyway, thanks to all the knowledgeable posters to make it fun to come on here and have a common love for Eskimo football and Rider bashing (Sorry, Lloyd!).

Cheers, and hope to chat with y'all later!

I guess I should tell you all a little about myself.

I have been, shall we say, lurking? :) around the site for about a year now, and just recently I decided to register, and contribute to the conversations here. You all seem like very knowledgeable posters, and I think finding a message board on the net in this day and age with as many knowledgeable people as Esksfans.com has is a rarity.

I am a 25 year old, avid Edmonton Eskimo and Edmonton Oiler fan, I've been following these two teams for as long as I can remember. I also follow the NFL quite closely, Green Bay and Denver being my two teams of choice.

As for work, I am a pilot. I fly for a mid-sized private organization called Peace Air which is based out of Edmonton. We fly all over Alberta, sometimes making trips to northern BC and Nunavut or Whitehorse, I love my job and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, the pay is great too which is just a bonus for me. I have been flying for 6 years now, all with the same company but I am looking into other areas like Air Canada. I recently took Boeing 737-400 and Boeing 747-400 training and I must say I have an intense desire to fly one of these jumbo jet's be it internationally or just continental, either way it might happen with-in the next 5 months. Right now I am flying 3 different Learjet models, a Learjet 55, 24, and 25. The 55 is more of a passenger aircraft - suited for 14 passengers, where-as the 24 and 25 models are for Cargo delivery - suited for 4 passengers. I have fallen in love with the Learjet 55 though, the plane is an absolute joy to fly, I would fly it for free if they asked me to :) . I fly out of Edmonton Municipal Airport most of the time, so ofcourse when the talks of it being shut down were swirling around we were quite concerned.

I don't currently have a picture of myself on this computer, but I do have a couple pictures of the Jet's I fly every week.

Learjet 55 - My favourite mid-sized jet

Learjet 25 - Mostly for cargo

I look forward to many interesting conversations in the near future with all of you. :)

I totally missed this sticky when I first joined on here last week, so I guess I can give a little info about me to the group.
I am a 32 y/o former Edmontonian now living by a lake in southern AB who just quite simply cannot give up my love for the Esks (or the Oilers) because I live in the south end of the best province in Canada! :thup: I have been lucky enough to get a Master's In Sports Business Management at the U of A, took my undergrad in Michigan while playing university hockey, and have been employed in & around professional sports since the age of 27.
As for the picture, well, I have plenty of me, but I prefer my avatar - which happens to be my "killer attack weiner dog". He may only be 7 lbs, but he is a ball of teeth, fangs & fur when enraged (mostly at the sight of Rider fans). :lol:
Anyways, I'd just like to thank the operators of this board for having it & allowing me to use it. It is cool to see a place where Esk-fans congregate, contemplate, and debate all in the name of good fun. Long live the G & G!

I'm 23, been a die hard Bomber fan as long as I can remember with my parents having season tickets for a long time, and going to games with my uncle since I was real young, he taught me the ropes on being a Bomber fan.

Became cemented for life as a Die hard when I got to play a game at Winnipeg Stadium when I was a 11 years old and got to meet a bunch off players such as James West (all time favourite) Mike Richardson, Chris Walby, and others.

Haven't missed a game in years. Schedule work and school around it. Best place to spend a Spring to Fall day is at Canad Inns watching the Bombers.

Studying for my Lsat and applying to graduate schools for criminology and sociology.

Just actually found out about this site today, on a link from the 13thman.com, but this is exactly what I was looking for. You see I'm a die-hard Eskies fan who was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan. As you can well imagine, we Eskies fans are slightly outnumbered here in the "Queen" city.

I have been an Edmonton fan since I was 5 years old, when I watched my first CFL game with my Dad, who was (and of course still is) and die hard Eskies fan also.

What more can I say? : )

Hello All, My name is Matthew and I'm 26 with no kids(thank god). I live in clareview and have been a die hard Eskies and oilers fan for as long as I can remember. I've been an Eskimo season ticket holder with seats in section Q since about 1992. Some of my hobbies include playing pool, xbox live, smoking Green, and the odd fantasy book(R.A. Salvatore is one of my favorite Authors). I am new on here but have been a regular on the sportsnet fan forum for a while now. P.S ESKIMOS 2005 GREY CUP CHAMPIONS!!!!!

Hello Everyone:

My name is Mick, and I live in Lethbridge. I am married, have 3 kids (including a new baby girl), and am currently working toward an Education Degree. I am also a devoted Eskimo fan.

The first Eskimo game I can remember seeing was the 1975 Grey Cup the Eskimos won in Calgary. I remember being attracted to the green and gold uniforms (they wore their home greens in that game).

The first game I remember that just ripped at my gut was the 1977 Grey Cup in Montreal (Ice-Bowl). What a frustrating game that was, with players slipping all over the place. The Eskimos had beaten BC easily the week before and the team was on a roll. Then we had to play the Grey Cup on frozen toilet bowl water!

The dynasty teams were good times. Unfortunately, the Eskimo organization lost a great one in David Boone recently. When I think of Boone I think about his consistency, and how he fit the mould of a team built with consistency as its backbone. The dynasty teams were an ensemble of highly skilled, highly intelligent, highly disciplined, highly motivated athletes, who were loyal to each other and to their fans. Flip a switch and they would play the game mentally the same way every game. They seemed to hate losing, and so avoided it. Every position on those teams had greatness, even the punter. I remember playing touch football, and when it was time to punt, the kid kicking the ball would proclaim himself as being "Hank Illesic".

I remember watching the 1978 Rose Bowl and seeing a guy named Warren Moon play and thinking to myself; this guy is good, not realizing he would end up in Edmonton. When he didÖ.wow! What a player! Easily the best to play in the CFL. He was a level up. Flutie was Flutie, but you cannot get any better than Moon. He made quarterbacking look effortless, and maintained that level in the NFL. He could run, throw deep, throw the short stuff, was deadly accurate, and could consistently throw low so that only his receiver could catch the ball. He had the perfect mentor in Tom Wilkinson to help him with the creative aspect of running an offense. Also, he was not afraid of utilizing Jim Germany and Neil Lumsden in the backfield. Had Moon signed with the New York Giants when he went to the NFL, he would have been a multi Super Bowl winner. Unfortunately, he went to Houston, who never came close to building a defense to parallel the amazing offense he lead. Could you imagine him in New York at the time? With Moon on offense and LT. leading the D? Wow! During Moon's time in the NFL I would switch allegiances to the teams he played for. I cheered for Houston when he was there. Became a Viking fan for awhile, then Seahawks, and finally Chiefs.

As an aside, I remember my brother and I chuckling when, during Moon's first training camp with the Eskimos, he competed against another quarterback named Charlie Weatherbie. Anyone remember that name? I instantly made the association with that character from the "Archie" comics. Weatherbie ended up playing in Ottawa for awhile, I recall.

I like that the Eskimo management built and continues to build a solid program and maintains an appreciation of their alumni. I remember in the early to mid-80's when it became clear that the dynasty was over and a youth movement was necessary, a statement someone made regarding management's recruitment of players. I cannot remember who said it, but the quote was something like, 'they don't rebuild, they reload". I like that. That type of thinking breeds long-term success.

I appreciate the Eskimo's history of employing two good quarterbacks on the team. They have had Wilkinson/Lemmerman, Wilkinson/Moon, Moon/Dunigan, Dunigan/Allen, Allen/Ham, Ray/Maas, and now Maas/Jones. I was a little nervous last year when Maas was injured, or inconsistent on the road. Now that Jones is in the fold, the offence can still move when Maas is out. Hopefully everyone understands their role in all this and will support those on the field.

To end, here are a few in a significant collection of memorable moments and players that highlight my life as an Eskimo fan:

Most Emotional Moment:
Winning the 1987 Grey Cup on Jerry Kauric's kick. That was a tough kick (not a chip shot by any means) and he nailed it. Also, who can forget how cool Damon Allen was coming off the bench following Dunigan's injury. They had to win that game. The team had lost in an embarrassment the previous year to Hamilton.

Most Appreciated Moment:
During the dynasty years, beating Ottawa, after being down significantly at halftime. The Eskimos were supposed to crush them in the Grey Cup, but for some reason they struggled. They got it together at the half to win it. Had they lost that game, I would have had to quit school. The humiliation would have killed me!

Smartest Player: Tom Wilkinson

Most Exciting Player: Gizmo Williams

Best Receiver: Brian Kelly (he caught everything thrown his way)

Best Defensive Players: Dan Kepley and Dave Fennell (Canada's version of Ham and Lambert)

Best Acquisition Following An Injury To A Star Player: In the early 80's Dan Kepley gets hurt so they bring in Carl Crennel from Montreal. The best middle linebacker in the CFL at the time gets hurt so the organization goes out and gets the second best one to replace him! Wow!

Best Kicker: Dave Cutler. (People make fun of kickers nowadays. They would not have dared make fun of Dave Cutler. Not that they could have anyway, the guy never missed)

Player I felt Most Sorry For: Tommy Scott getting traded to Calgary late in his career for Danny Bass. Thanks Calgary for provided the Eskimos with a great linebacker and thanks Tommy for allowing the Eskimos the opportunity to acquire him. It would have been nice having Scott retire in an Eskimo uniform though. He was a great Eskimo!

Weirdest Head Coaching Move: Pete Kettella over Cal Murphy or Don Mathews (never could figure that one out).

Most Likable Head Coach: Joe Faragelli

Hey all! My name is CJ and I am a former Edmontonian living in sunny Victoria. I am married with two little boys(who I am already grooming to bleed Green and Gold and Blue and Copper!!). Living here in Vic, I really miss going to CW and seeing the boys play on the best turf in football. I try to get over to BC Place(s**thole) when the 'smoes' come to town but I find it near impossible to stomach the Lion's fans.(they make Stampeder fans seem like NASA scientists). That said I get to watch alot of games on TSN. :thup:

a couple of things I should say:
- I started going to Eskimo games when I was three years old.
- My favorite all time Eskimos are Willie Pless and Warren Moon.
- My favorite current Eskimos are Mobley and Hervey.
- I think Pringle was a great CFLer...but a bad Eskimo.
- I think Mass is developing into a great quarterback.
- I think the CFL(and the Esks) are going to have a great year!

Cheers....

:heh: After scrutinizing this thread, I have come to the conclusion that I haven't introduced myself yet :confused: :heh:...which I could've sworn I did, but perhaps that wasn't here. A lot about me can be found in several different threads, but I'll summarize it here for convenience :thup:.

Anyways, I'm Matt, a.k.a. GF2, I'm 18, student at U of A just finishing 1st year of Arts. I'm hoping to get into Business next year, but I'm not quite sure what I'll major in (or, if I don't get in, what I'll do :confused: will probably just finish my B.A. and then take an MBA or something).

As you may have gathered, I like stats :thup:...I just find them interesting, they're a good way IMO to define how well a game/season went, and they're great for arguing a point with :thup:.

I'm a huge fan of the Esks, Oilers/RoadRunners, and the Golden Bears and Pandas :thup: . Esks season ticket holder since 2002, Sec C row 12, #2 Williams jersey and big Esks flag :thup: feel free to say hi if you're ever down around that corner.

No g/f or summer job currently, although I'm looking for both of those. I drive a 93 tan Nissan Maxima. I like rock music and I like to travel, hoping to get a couple road trips in for games in CGY and SSK this year :thup:.

I'll attach a pic as soon as I can find a decent one.

Flames fan, Hitmen fan, Roughnecks fan, etc.

NOT an Eskimos fan, Oilers fan, Roadrunners fan, etc., but my grandma in Edmonton is probably one of the biggest Esks/Oil fans around.

But I like your site. You guys seem to be some of the most mature fans in the CFL, while still having fun on here.

I'm looking forward to labour day this year with a re-energized Stamps team and a still-very-competitive Esks club in '05.

Hello, My name is Eskimos32001.

My real name is _______. I live in Saskatoon, SK. I am 15 years old, and am currently attending St. joseph High School, where i have play both Full Back and Offensive Tackle for the school junir team. I had an 87 % average last year.

I like to joke around, but that often rubs people the wrong way, and people get mad at me alot. Ive been playing and watching football since before i was 6 years old. I love football the most, but i love all sports, including basketball, auto racing, american football, and hockey. i play alot of free fantasy sports because im poor and too cheap to lay down real money. Sometimes i post alot about nothing, but that might be because im not real good at communicating to people. So, ill usually find ways to joke around, argue, or just state whats on my mind.

ive already got over 1, 200 posts, so you already know me, this is just official.

P.S. I love hot chocolate, but got addicted, which through me into intense fits of anger when i didnt drink it, so im quiting, and as you can read below, ive been hot choclate free since May 11th.

Anyway, strolled down the sidelines, ran into then-Head Coach Ray Jauch... got to talking, & he smiled & said how much he was enjoying the game... told him the Esks were gonna go all the way that year... he replied "Hope so." Smiled and thanked me.

My name is Evan; I'm 29, live with my older sis and her 3 boys who are 12, 11 and 8. I live on the south side (Capalano area). I work for Health Canada as a shipper/receiver in a medical supply warehouse on the North West side of the city. Itís a long commute to work every morning (especially by bus) but having a government job and the pay and benefits that go along with it are worth it.

Iím turning my nephews into dire-hard Eskimo fans. Especially the 11 year old (heís defiantly a future poster here). He keeps himself pretty well informed about the Esks and CFL in general.

I am the son of a die-hard Hockey / Baseball fan and a Saskcahewan Roughrider fan. First introduced to the CFL by my grandma (the most out spoken Rider-Prider I've ever known). So naturally I decided to cheer for my home town team the Eskimo's.

As I keep telling my mom I'm not insane enough to be a Rider fan. :D

My whole family are diehard Rider fans. I could never feel the way they do year after year so I decided to break the ties and cheer on the green and gold.

Wrong. While my Mom had no choice in where she was raised, she wasn't born in sask, and by 17 she had moved to Winipeg before finally moving with my Dad to Edm. Ma's an Eskimo fan.......

I do have family in N.Battleford and in Winipeg but they are subject to football scorn and ridicule at family gatherings. :D

Hey,
I'm going to on here for quite a while as my "buddy for the longest time" Esk4Ever is a "super moderator" and this is a great way to stay in touch and keeping up with my team.

I'm 26, married, 2 kids, living in $%^$&%#$& Calgary, home of the worst sports broadcasters ever. (although I really hate Brian Hall) I'm a professional musician, but I used to do a lot of emergency response stuff. (volunteer firefighter, special response diver, high angle rescue, etc.) Then, I got married and had to get a normal job. I love downhill skiing and think golf is for wimps.

As for pedigree, my dad is an Esks fan and my Mom couldn't care less. My proudest moment was going to the labour day classic in Calgary with my 3 year old daughter, buying two tickets from a scalper, and then putting on our Eskimoes hats and walking away. He was pissed! :D

Been meaning to do this for sometime.

31 years old... grew up in St. Albert and have been a EE fan for as long as I can remember. Played hockey till Junior and after the dream died I attended NAIT in Business. I work for Ford Credit here in Edmonton. Have been married for 4 years and have a new 5 month old baby daughter.

I would say my 3 greatest EE moments are in no particular order.

Being in Regina in 2003 was really special. My father in law is an engineer in the oil business and scored us 3 seats, 10 rows behind the EE bench about 4 days before the game. It had been a long 10 years as an Esks fan and to see them win it live was great. We were stuck with all the Rider season ticket holders and we took some abuse but it was well worth it. The Spirit of Edmonton room the night before the game was one of the best ever!

Watching the EE in the Grey Cup at home in 2002 was something else. Sure they lost but I will never forget them coming out of the tunnel to the home crowd. It gives me shivers just thinking of it.

I know I said these were in no particular order but I think this next one might be the one I love the most. 1993 WESTERN FINAL. Me and my 5 buddies hop in my car at the time... a Dodge Shadow. Pack in and make the trek down to Calgary early Saturday night for the game Sunday morning. Its minus a hundred and a snow storm, cars all over the ditch. Get to Calgary and check into our hotel and then head to Electric Ave and have a one of those nights you have when your 20! Wake up the next day and there is a foot of snow on the ground. After spending a ton at Marks Work Wearhouse we headed to McMahon. You could not even find your seat, you had to literally dig it out. For those of you that remember that game you know it was crazy with the weather. Flutie and the Stamps were a complete powerhouse that year and the EE started to pour it on late in the year. The Stamps built that team to play in their own Grey Cup and when Edmonton beat them it was complete heartbreak. The image I will never forget from that game is once it was over I saw this girl walking out of the stadium with a Pitts jersey on and she had two tears frozen to her face. The people of Calgary were in utter shock that the hated Eskimos ruined their Grey Cup...to tell you the truth I still don't know how we got out of there alive! Next week the EE won it all but most EE fans would say the Grey Cup was really won that snowy day against one of the best teams Calgary has ever put on the field. Jed or Wad if your reading this you must remember this game very well!!

So that's me, just another guy that loves his Green and Gold. Can't wait to get another season started!

I just turned 44 last Sunday. My first Eskimo game was at Clarke Stadium in 1969 when I was 8. The Esks were playing the Alouettes and Charlie Fulton was our QB (Carrol Williams was theirs). I don't know who won but I remember that a guy spilled chicken soup on my new cowboy boots. I started going to the games regularly with my dad in 1971, the last year that the Eskies missed the playoffs. We went through the 1988 season when my dad got sick of the drunks at Commonwealth and gave up his seats after 26 seasons. For a few years after that, I was one of those drunks at the stadium although not nearly as obnoxious (at least as I remember it). After that, I lucked into company seats and 9 years ago got my own season tickets. Even though hockey replaced football as my favorite sport when I was in Grade 4, I have always felt that the Eskimos mean way more to me than any other team in any league.

Personal stuff? Not too exciting. I'm married and we have a 13 year old daughter who likes music way more than sports although she doesn't complain too much (yet!) when I drag her to games. Since 1984, I've worked with junior/senior high special ed. students, first as a program aide, and for the last 16 years as a Social Studies and English teacher. Except for my first year of teaching when I lived in Edson for 10 months, I've lived in Edmonton my whole life. The weather is stupid but I still like it here.

The shirt I am wearing was made up for the 2002 Grey cup and has been worn to every football game I have gone to.

Name is Ernie. Born in Edmonton, raised in Redwater and Edmonton. Graduated U of A in 1966. Never lived in Edmonton since but visited many times. I'm 61 yrs young, married 35 years, 1 daughter, 2 grandchildren(1 of each). Been a fan since 1952 and still have the Journal for the 52, 54, 55 and 56 Grey Cups. Heard the Jackie Parker TD run in 54 on the radio in Redwater. I've lived and died Eskimos, lived a good long time and then died in the sixties. God bless the KnotHole Gang. Got bless holes in the fences so I could get into the real Clark Stadium. Grandchildren(and daughter) coming to visit in 23 days(from Saskatoon) and I'll be able to spoil the crap out of them for 5 weeks. One of my favorite players was Jim Thomas who made the sixties almost bearable. Live in New Brunswick now. Thank God for the internet.

I guess this is as good a place as any for my 1st post. My name is Guy...I am 43 years old...lived in Edmonton until 1991 and then spent a few (at times hellish :eek: ) years in Winnipeg before moving to Calgary. I have been an Eskimo fan since my first year in the good ole Knothole Gang in 1971. Very fond memories of watching the Esks sitting in the endzone seats at Clarke Stadium. I am one of many loyal Eskimo/Oiler fans behind enemy lines here in Calgary and take great delight in trekking around town with my son in our Oiler jerseys. Greatest Eskimo memory was witnessing and celebrating the 1987 Grey Cup win at BC Place in Vancouver and then continuing the celebration with the Eskimo cheerleaders on the flight back to Edmonton. :thup:

I've been an Eskimos and Oilers fan since I was able to watch TV. I think I got it from my father who is also a die hard Eskimo and Oiler fan. He'd be on here everyday if he knew how to use a computer!!! :)

Ok, I just noticed that I've never posted my bio. :o I figured better late than never. So after 1600 posts here goes...
My name isn't earl, I'm married (her name isn't earl either) and have a year and a half old daughter, and another kid on the way (early 2006). I'm 33 years old and work in construction in Northern Alberta. As most of you know, I officiate football in my spare time (and believe me it takes up most of my spare time..) everything from pee-wee football to high school and senior ball. I've been an Eskimos fan since the day I knew what a football was. And fortunately for me, my wife loves the Eskies and the game of football almost as much as I do.
Oh, and I think that esksfans is the best site around!

Now I expect to see my name on KnuckleChuckers list... :D

I'm brand new and want to introduce myself a little. Don't want to be ID'd so will only give a bit of info. I'm roughly age 45-55, am a former politician (if you live in Alberta there is a pretty good chance you'll know who I am) and have been involved in bringing world-class events to Edmonton. I'm an Esk fan and look forward to coming here from time to time to discuss my favourite team. I've lurked for some time over the shoulder of a friend on his computer and have decided to join you all.

Sellers,

Huge Bomber fan and toightest poster on the internet. I turn 24 on the 28th of this month. I'm getting old. Currently single and loving it. Professionally employed in sales and live in Winnipeg. My home and my favourite place to be.

Long story short. Also lived in Regina for 2 years. I was transfered for work. Nice people, but I really missed Winnipeg. During my time there I met Shane (Chaps) the admin from Rider Fans.com. And am currently the only non rider fan moderator there.

Here's a picture of me (silver sun glasses on the right) CFLer is the other Bomber fan. And Reggiecrack is the moustache rider fan with the knife. :lol: That was the first time we met him in person at Labour Day 2003. I now have a goatee and am even more dead sexy. I know, hard to believe. And don't pull a GreenBlood from rf.com Diesel, I totally don't swing that way man!

This site seems pretty cool. So I'm going to try to post here more often.

Cheers,
Sellers
