In a 27 to 16 victory over the Ottaway RedBlacks, the Stamps managed to end their two-year-long Grey Cup losing streak to prove that the third time really is the charm.

What’s more is that they did it on a slippery Edmonton field, meaning that their champagne-soaked celebration was held in the Eskimo’s very own locker room — a fact that many Stampeders fans were quick to point out following the big win.

Many red and white-clad football fans made the three-hour trip up to Edmonton to watch the game live, while others had their eyes glued to TV screens in the homes and bars of YYC.

Still, that didn’t stop them from congratulating the team over Twitter following Sunday’s fourth quarter, with Stamps fans from all around rejoicing in the long-sought victory.

Here are just a few of those reactions to this weekend’s big Grey Cup win:

The City of Calgary will be hosting a Stampeders rally on Tuesday at noon for anyone who would like to celebrate with the team in person.
