With terrific memories on giant TV screens, with posters of Rough Riders greats from yesteryear -- the likes of Russ Jackson, Tony Gabriel, Frank Clair, Gerry Organ, JC Watts, Tom Clements, Margene Adkins, Kaye Vaughan and Bobby Simpson -- the RedBlacks did something wonderfully historic on Tuesday.

At their new state-of-the-art Stadium Preview Centre on Ogilvie Rd., directly to the right of the Beer Store, the RedBlacks officially signed up their first season ticket holders -- a front-row experience that included popcorn.

Yes, folks -- this CFL thing is no mirage. We really do have a team. They will start playing in 2014. And it's time to get on board.
