Grey Cup Feevah!

This article from CTV.ca gives us the scoop on the festivities up north. There's not much on the cheerleaders, but I did find some photos from the par-tay on flickr here, here, and here.

Grey Cup party finally heating up in Toronto

On the eve of Canada's biggest day in football, Grey Cup fever is finally heating up in Toronto.

Several special events were held at the CFL party Saturday afternoon, including book signings, football demonstrations and a cook-off with CTV's Tim Weber on hand as a judge.

Cheerleaders from all teams were at the party, hyping up the crowd. The event kicked off with the Toronto Argonauts Blue Thunder cheerleading squad.

Blue Thunder cheerleader Shannon Kay said even though the team was in good spirits, it didn't mean they were not disappointed Toronto's team didn't make the finals.

"We're a little disappointed, we'd prefer being in the grey cup," she told CTV Toronto.

Eight events were scheduled for Saturday night, including a gala party at the Liberty Grand featuring Canadian band Blue Rodeo.

Tickets were snapped up quickly for Sunday's showdown between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
