    Question Grey Cup Etiquette

    Will be, for my first time, attending the Grey Cup game.
    The inevitable question arises, of what to wear?
    Something weather appropriate - undoubtedly. Can be darn cold that time of year sitting around the stadium here in Ottawa.
    But - do fans wear the colours/gear/garb of their favourite team?
    (In other words, is it appropriate for me to show up in green and gold?)
    I suspect that this is the way it is, but would like to know what others here think and/or have experienced.
    Thank you.

    At Grey Cup you always sport your teams colours no matter who’s playing. It’s a league wide celebration of the CFL.

    Oilers sweater.
    CBC Radio show Q host Tom Power interviewing Lewis Black:
    Tom: do you think Trump is good for comedy?
    Lewis: no, that's like saying a stroke is good for a nap.

    You can wear your green & gold. It is encouraged.

    My buffalo coat has always served me well, impervious to cold and physical abuse.

    Bring a Riders and Stamps suck sign.

    Wear the Green and Gold baby! There will be a lot of it there since they will be playing and everyone hates the Stumps.
    There are better things in the world than beer but beer sort of compensates for not getting them.

    I'll be waiting for you guys in Ottawa for my Grey Cup birthday. November football rocks.
