The Rogers Centre is starting to fill up, as is the press box, which is busying with media who are dining on a pre-game meal of turkey and pasta. Fans are pressed up against the hotel windows overlooking the field. There is a definite big-game feel in the air.

Several Stampeders have just run onto the field in full equipment for warmup to a big cheer. A handful of Argos are still doing light jogging, stretching and field goal kicking

The scene outside the building was absolutely incredible. When the Grey Cup arrived at Rogers Centre, it was like royalty coming through. Two fans carried it onto the steps of Rogers Centre, flanked by security on all sides as fans decked in jerseys and costumes for every CFL team jogged beside with phones and cameras, cheering and singing. The fan march was a great idea. Hope it catches on as a long-standing tradition.

Lots of flag-waving Stampeder fans in the house.

Pinball Clemons has given the Argos several pep talks this season in the days leading up to big games. Coach Milanovich is very superstitious about it now, since it has worked. Friday's pep talk from Pinball was a long one, a real heart-to-heart that had the guys arm in arm.

Anwar Stewart was the to give the Stamps their pep talk. He said his message would be: you never know when you might be playing your last game, so make it count.

Little-known fact...Argos quarterback Ricky Ray often practises dealing with the distractions in the pocket by having quarterbacks coach Jason Maas hit him with a pool noodle as he runs through his reads in practice. That's how champions are made.
