Canadian football’s best comes to Chilliwack

Canadian Football League MVP Travis Lulay celebrates a Grey Cup win in Chilliwack, visiting Sports & Stuff in the Chilliwack Mall Dec. 10.

Canadian Football League MVP Travis Lulay is coming to Chilliwack on Saturday, Dec. 10.

The B.C. Lions quarterback will be at Sports & Stuff in the Chilliwack Mall, tentatively between 1 and 3 p.m.

Lulay is not only the reigning regular season MVP, but he also won the Grey Cup MVP award at last Sunday’s title game.

Getting a player of that stature to visit Chilliwack is a major score for Sports & Stuff owner Rick Lovell.

“I’ve been working on it for a couple months because I was fully confident they were going to win,” he said. “Travis has been out before and really likes our store. He said he’d come out anytime, so I sent him an email Sunday night, in the middle of the night, then another one Monday and another one Tuesday.”

Lovell has proven adept at getting Lion players to visit the Valley. Future CFL Hall of Famers Geroy Simon and Paul McCallum, along with all-star linebacker Solomon Elimimian, came out in early August.

Their visit drew somewhere between 300-500 fans, and Lovell is expecting similar for Lulay’s appearance.

Sports & Stuff will have 8×10 pictures of Lulay, posing with the Grey Cup, available for purchase.

Lulay will likely bring his MVP trophies with him.
