    Attention Exactly one decade ago...

    ...esksfans.com was born.

    I can't believe it has been 10 years. Many of you were here when it started and are still here now. Thanks everyone for making this the best CFL forum on the net.

    Awww...seems like only yesterday we were being visually assaulted with big blue letters and Tucker this Tucker that...

    Gratz on 10 years already though. Doesn't seem like it does it?
    Well, gentlemen, by all means, I think we ought to have an introspective moment of silence for poor old Tin-Tin.

    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    Congrats sir! I'm sure I speak for all the fans (Esks & even those other CFL fans) that say, thank you for providing us with a home to talk about football and all the other stuff!!!

    Congrats Ang!

    Sounds like a call for a party, lets do this right!

    Look. We can go round and round about this all the live long day. Let's keep it simple. I embody amazement. Can you dig on that? Good. Then meet me on the corner of rock and roll, and bring a flask of something that burns.

    Congrats all. I loved when I found this site after getting tired of the censorship at Esks.com which the team does not run anyway. I found the 13th man forum jumbled this site is professional and generally a fantastic place to talk football with Real Fans.

    Outstanding benchmark to hit 10 years of still being the best place to get Esks information and talk about this team. Been nearly 9 years myself since I found a link on 13thman and registered. I've met some great people because of it.

    I look forward to the 20th anniversary!

    Been here a while my own self and have relied on this board for a number of things... support, condolences, entertainment, ideas for breakfast and even as a dating site. Thanks to esksfans I have met some pretty fantastic people I am lucky to friends and one most amazing person I get to call husband.

    Thanks to you Angelus and your beautiful Wifey.
