Description

The Calgary Stampeders are a professional football team based in Calgary, Alberta, competing in the West Division of the Canadian Football League (CFL). The Stampeders play their home games at McMahon Stadium and are the third-oldest active franchise in the CFL, officially founded in 1935 as the Calgary Bronks. The Stampeders have won 18 Western Division Championships and one Northern Division Championship. They have appeared in 13 Grey Cup Championship games, and have won the league's Grey Cup championship six times.

Grey Cup wins: 1948, 1971, 1992, 1998, 2001, 2008

It is believed the modern Grey Cup festivities began when the Stampeders travelled to Toronto to compete in the Grey Cup championship in 1948. Fans traveled west to The Big Smoke, taking with them traditional pancake breakfasts from the Calgary Stampede, and a now infamous incident when one enthusiastic fan rode his horse into the lobby of the posh Royal York Hotel. The Grey Cup game is now the climax of a week-end long festival that celebrates one of North America's oldest professional sports championships.

Ralph the Dog can be seen on the sidelines at all Stampeders home games, energizing the crowd, and Quick Six, the "touchdown horse", gallops the sideline everytime the Stampeders make a major score at McMahon.
