A Few Fun Facts About the Edmonton Eskimos

The Edmonton Eskimos colors are green and gold. The colors originate from the 1949 season when the team borrowed uniforms from the University of Alberta because the Golden Bears were not active that season. The color scheme stuck. They also borrowed 13 kegs of Molson Golden Ale which they have yet to return.

In 2005 the Eskimos introduced green pants into their uniform combinations.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s the Eskimos won 5 Grey Cups in a row. All over town fans loved to sing the Edmonton Eskimos fight song:

We’re cheering fight, fight, fight on Eskimos.
We’re cheering fight, fight, fight on Eskimos.
We’re charging down the field for all to see.
But please God don’t make me wear these green pants.
