Wow! This is a fantastic idea! It should be a great event on the Sunday of the 100th CFL Grey Cup. Below came to my email today from the very popular CFL commissioner Mark Cohon. I wonder if TheGreyCup will be talking on this day? I think so! Refer to the video below!

Dear Fans,

I'm here to tell you about something new, exciting and true to the spirit of our great league: your chance to carry the Grey Cup trophy to the 100th Grey Cup game.

On the afternoon of Sunday, November 25th, the Sun Life Grey Cup Fan March will wind its way through the streets of downtown Toronto to Rogers Centre.

Many participating fans will have the unique opportunity to carry the Grey Cup trophy alongside legendary CFL players from past Grey Cup Games.

Imagine the excitement in carrying the Cup, handing it to legendary CFL alumnus Warren Moon, and then watching Warren hand it back to your son or your daughter! What an awesome moment that would be for you, your family and our league!

This is our way of thanking you, our fans, for making the CFL what it is today - strong, proud and growing. And it's our way of celebrating the Grey Cup and what it has become over the decades: a true Canadian icon.

On Grey Cup Sunday, the festivities will kick off at 12:30 pm from Varsity Stadium, the site of 30 past Grey Cups, with the Sun Life Grey Cup Fan March leaving the Stadium at 1:45 p.m. Thanks to our tremendous partners at Sun Life Financial, there will be entertainment, marching bands, mascots, cheerleaders and a whole lot of spirited fun throughout the March, which will be featured on TSN's game day coverage, hosted by TSN's Cabral 'Cabbie' Richards. The March will proceed to Front Street joining the pre-game celebrations at the TELUS Street Festival.

This is a unique, fun and new idea. We don't know of any other league that has attempted this. So we're counting on you to make it successful. Mark the Sun Life Grey Cup Fan in your calendar and bring your family and friends with you. Wear your team colours, be loud, and be part of history.

This is your chance to carry the Grey Cup trophy on its proudest day ever to the biggest game in our proud history.

So let's show the world that our fans are the best - and the Grey Cup truly belongs to all Canadians!

Thank you!

Mark Cohon
CFL Commissioner

It's a Miracle! Just like Mark Wahlberg's teddy bear Ted came alive well so did TheGreyCup.

I ask TheGreyCup about some of his wild adventures around Canada over the past 100 years. The 100th CFL Grey Cup is Nov 25, 2012!
