Calgary football fans have had it very good for more than a decade as year after year – save for a brief stretch to begin the 2000’s – the CFL’s Stampeders have been consistent winners.
Yet this year’s edition may eclipse them all after winning 8 of their first 10 on the season and getting stronger and stronger each time out.

Stampeder players and coaches are all making reference to “something special” brewing in the team chemistry. So far, it’s been a surprising season with a number of high profile changes. Time will tell if that “special feeling” in the locker room leads to a CFL championship.
