This year marks the 103rd time two teams will battle for the right to hold the Grey Cup.
Wade Miller is still feeling the sting of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers not playing in this Sunday’s Grey Cup game on home turf. The CFL team’s president and CEO has to shelf that disappointment as the club focuses on hosting a full week of fun events leading up to the 103rd championship game between the Edmonton Eskimos and Ottawa RedBlacks here in Winnipeg.

Tricks to stay warm
Dr. Gordon Giesbrecht, a physiologist who picked up the nickname Professor Popsicle for the work he does studying the effects of extreme environments on the human body at the University of Manitoba, said a piece of styrofoam between your seat and the seat will do wonders to help keep you warm. “Styrofoam is magic in winter. If I was going to the game, that’s what I’d do. And I have,” Giesbrecht said, suggesting another piece for under your feet should you wish.
Alcohol can stimulate blood flow and create the feeling that you are warmer than you really are. Your extremities (Head, Hands, Feet) will suffer the most if not protected.
- A good warm toque with neck protector will allow you to breathe better than with a full balaclava making it much easier to watch the game.This tops off the chimney parts.
- Good wool socks makes for the best foundation along with a pair of quality insulated boots.
- Layers including thermal underwear, cotton shirt and pants with at least 2 layers of outer wear will round out your dress list for the game.
Invest in quality pieces of clothing that can be used over and over again in the future.
Just remember you are in Winnipeg. Enjoy the Game!!
