On Sunday night, Canada celebrated a great game and a big anniversary.
It was the 100th anniversary of the football championship that decides who takes the most important prize in the Canadian Football League — the Grey Cup.
Across the country, and all over Toronto, Canadians were cheering for the Toronto Argonauts or the Calgary Stampeders.
At noon on Sunday, fans converged on Varsity Stadium in downtown Toronto for a “fan march,” a big parade of Canadian football fans.
The Argos’ mascot, Jason, bounced around the crowd giving people high-fives.
The Stampeders’ mascot, Ralph, made his way through the mostly Toronto crowd.
But it didn’t matter who you were rooting for–the real celebration was about the game itself.
“The only play is the next play,” the coach for the Argos told his team before the big game.
At the same time, in the other dressing room, the coach for the Stampeders reminded his team that, “one word — team — is why we’re here.”
