The 101st Grey Cup by unoservix The 101st Grey Cup by unoservix
wherein we discover that the overlap between "CFL fans" and "pony fans" consists entirely of me. also it is my headcanon that Sparkler is Derpy's rebellious teenage daughter and you can't do anything about it.

so yes! i did one of these for Super Bowl XLVII and in the interest of fairness or Canadian content broadcasting laws or whatever i now draw a picture of ponies to celebrate the 101st Grey Cup of the Canadian Football League, because i guess that is a thing that i do. yes, they play football in Canada, except it's all weird with twelve men on the field and tons of pre-snap motion and no fair catch and ginormous fields and only three downs and actually for reals caring about head trauma to players and etc.

i only started watching CFL football halfway through the 2013 season. although i'm pretty sure i got to see every team in the league play at least once, most of the time it seemed like i was watching either the Eskies or the Bombers sleepwalk their way to some embarrassing defeat. so there are very few player/team/city/geography/stereotype in-jokes here as compared to that Super Bowl picture, and there's a pretty obvious bias towards players on offense. also i drew way fewer characters for this than i did for that Super Bowl picture, since i only had a week to draw this thing, because the CFL has the good sense not to schedule a completely pointless exhibition game in which nobody tries very hard during the week before the Grey Cup. either way, every team in the CFL other than the expansion Ottawa Redblacks is represented up there one way or another, although some more than others, thanks to my being familiar with some teams more than others.

fortunately, the overlap between CFL fans and pony fans consists of me, so nobody will care.

so yeah, viva la Grey Cup or whatever

Oh...it's just regular MLP fanart. From a distance I thought you drew the mane six as mobile suits. That would have been awesome.

I guess the Hamilton Tiger Cats would still be called the "Tiger Cats" in Equestria. There's bound to be some tiger cats SOMEWHERE  in that world. :)

 

But how do you ponyfy the Saskatchewan Roughriders? The Saskatchewan HOOFriders??? :P

Great job with this, it's well done! ^_^ 
But why is Scootaloo crying and why does Big Macintosh look so sad? Applebloom, Thunderlane, Rainbow Dash and Dinky don't look too happy either.

they're sad because the Toronto Argonauts and the Calgary Stampeders, which were good enough to earn first-round byes, both wound up losing

well, the BC Lions lost a while ago too, so there's that

and Dinky, i just thought it'd be funny if she was all pissed off
