SAIT student Mark Wolf, 23, said he and some buddies still plan to attend the game, even though Environment Canada predicts temperatures will likely have dipped below -15 C come kickoff time.
“I’m wearing all my snowboard gear and then just throwing a jersey over the top,” he said.
“It should be rowdy and I think everyone’s going to be drinking to keep warm.”
Wolf, a season-ticket holder, watched as his Stamps battled to the No. 1 seed in the West Division during the regular season. He anticipates a low-scoring affair this Sunday.
“There should be a lot of running because of the cold ... but it should be a pretty close game,” he said.
The winner of the West Final will advance to the 98th Grey Cup, in Edmonton on Nov. 28.
