Fans of every Canadian Football League team took in events throughout the week and then packed Calgary’s McMahon Stadium Sunday to watch the Blue Bombers win the CFL’s 107th Grey Cup.

5 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

1. The Bombers and Tiger-Cats meet Sunday in the 107th Grey Cup in what should be a dandy showdown featuring two iconic Canadian Football League franchises. This will be the 11th time, dating back to 1935, when the two clubs were known as the 'Winnipegs' and 'Tigers' that these two teams will be pitted against each other for the Grey Cup.

Winnipeg has a 6-4 record in championship games against Hamilton, including owning the Ticats during the glory years of the late '50s-early '60s with wins in 1958, 1959, 1961 and 1962. The two teams also met in the 1957 and 1965 Grey Cups during that era, with those two games won by the Ticats. The last Grey Cup featuring these two teams was in 1984, with the Bombers ending what was then their longest championship drought, at 22 years.

Victory for trousers: Winnipeg's Grey Cup win means fan can wear pants again

  Victory for trousers: Winnipeg's Grey Cup win means fan can wear pants again CALGARY — One of the first things Blue Bombers fan Chris Matthew will need to do after he finishes celebrating Winnipeg's Grey Cup win is shop for trousers. Matthew promised his friends in November 2001 that he would keep wearing shorts until the Bombers won a Canadian Football League championship. It didn't happen that year — they lost to Calgary — so he's been braving Manitoba's chill winters with half his legs uncovered for the last 18 years. That all changed on Sunday when Winnipeg beat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 33-12.Matthew was in Calgary to cheer on his team and pulled on an old pair of grey camo sweat pants over his shorts after the win.

2. The 100-plus years of the Grey Cup means there have been a number of memorable games -- so memorable, in fact, that they have earned nicknames. The Bombers lost to Toronto in the 1950 title game, known as 'The Mud Bowl' because of awful field conditions and have also played in the 'Fog Bowl' -- which took two days to complete because of the fog that shrouded old Exhibition Stadium in Toronto, while the 1965 game was dubbed 'The Wind Bowl' for fairly obvious reasons.

This year's game also has a nickname, although it has nothing to do with icky weather conditions. The 107th Grey Cup has been dubbed 'The Drought Bowl' because it features the two franchises with the longest current championship droughts in the league, with Hamilton last winning in 1999 and the Bombers in 1990.

3. The Bombers bring a three-game win streak into this Sunday, having won their final regular-season game against Calgary, then knocking off the Stamps in the Western Semi-Final and the Saskatchewan Roughriders in last week's Western Final. Winnipeg is trying to become the first third-place team to win the Grey Cup since the 2005 Edmonton Eskimos. The Ticats, meanwhile, are on a seven-game heater and are 11-1 in their last 12.

4. Winnipeg lost both its matchups with Hamilton this year, falling 23-15 in late July in their first loss of the season after a 5-0 start and then 33-13 in late September. Worth noting here is this: Matt Nichols started the first game at quarterback for the Bombers; Chris Streveler the second. Zach Collaros will take the first snap on Sunday and is 3-0 as a starter for the Bombers, including last week's win over his old team, the Riders. Collaros, we must point out, also played for the Ticats.
