VANCOUVER -- Leo Dodge is cheering for the Stallouettes in tomorrow's Grey Cup game.

Yes, that's right: the Stallouettes.

Dodge is from Baltimore, the former home of the Stallions.

After two years of existence, the Stallions folded after winning the Grey Cup in 1995 and moved to Montreal to become the Alouettes - hence the name Stallouettes.

Believe it or not, Dodge is one of about 10 people from Baltimore that have made the trip to Vancouver to watch their former team play the Eskimos.

"I was devastated (when the Stallions left)," said Dodge.

"Now I got that other team (Baltimore Ravens) in that other No Fun League and I wish they would take them away and give me back my Stallions."

It is quite a sight to see Dodge and the Baltimore bunch walking on Vancouver streets wearing Stallion souvenir garb and flying a massive Stallion flag.

This is Dodge's 12th consecutive Grey Cup.

"It's one hell of a good time," he said.

Joe Short - another member of the crew - is handing out commemorative Stallion buttons this week.

One button reads: Honorary Member Baltimore Stallions Fan Club.

Another button reads: Thanks Canada - We may not repeat but we will not forget.

Back home Short's car licence plate reads: CFL FAN.

"I will drive down the beltway and people will beep their horns and remember," said Short. "We say there are 20,000 broken hearts still left in Baltimore."
