Bank Street will be filled with plaid wearing fans on Friday for a rematch of the Grey Cup 2016! Our hometown trophy winners, the Ottawa Redblacks will host Calgary in their home opener.
Many of those fans will be hoisting beer cans to match their ‘mad for plaid’ ensembles!
The shared anticipation for the new season has me feeling like much of Ottawa is still celebrating last year’s EPIC Grey Cup Win! You may want your shades for this tweet from Jeff Rodgers Jr., bling bling!!
The buzz about the Redblacks seems to have even spilled over to Hollywood. The hometown chatter about Ashton Kutcher wearing Redblacks swag on his Netflix series ‘The Ranch’ this week had the city a buzz! Since he tends to wear t’s from teams that he fictionally played for, it’s left some fans wondering if there may be a episodes where the back story takes the show to Ottawa.
