For one group of five friends, the Grey Cup means an opportunity to reunite, year after year.Hugh Harrison and his wife, Donna, first met Cheryl Graham and her husband, Daniel, along with Betty Halliday at the 88th Grey Cup in Calgary back in 2000.
“We’re wearing drover coats made out of the flags of our respective teams. We wear the coats proudly and we walk around and take a lot of pictures,” said Donna, who travelled to Edmonton with her husband from north of Sudbury, Ont.
“I got that idea from somebody in Alberta. I went home and sketched it all out, I’ve still got that original drawing that I sketched. We’ve had so much fun with these. I’ve made 55 coats,” said Halliday. “It takes eight hours of sewing and about two weeks in total.”
Donna said that despite her outfit choice and season tickets to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, she’s not sure if she would classify herself as being a “super fan.”
“We are a fan of the league and the sport. We are like-minded people; we all come together and cheer for a good game and a good outcome,” said Donna. “We came for the party and we stay for the game.”
