Fans from far and wide


By DAVID JALA -- Calgary Sun

 There was no way Logan Blackmore was going to miss yesterday's WWF extravaganza at the Saddledome.
 In fact, the 17-year-old, who showed up at the 'Dome some eight hours before the first bout, was hardly aware a Stampede was going on around him.

 "I am the biggest fan," declared Logan, clutching a copy of the official World Wrestling Federation guidebook.

 And he proved it, coming all the way from the Okanagan with cousins Landon Blackmore, 16, and Curtis Payne, 15, to take in the WWF In Your House special.

 "We're all big fans, actually," said Curtis.

 "And he's right -- we're here for the show."

 And clad in Stone Cold Steve Austin T-shirts, the trio were first in line at an afternoon autograph session on the steps of the Saddledome.

 "We've been waiting for this all summer -- we bought our tickets two and a half months ago," said Logan.

 "So this is the best day of the summer."

 Hundreds of other wrestling fans obviously agreed, as demonstrated by the huge crowds that showed up at every one of the grapplers' Stampede appearances.
