TORONTO ZOO VS. CALGARY ZOO
GREY CUP CEO CHALLENGE 2017


It’s on Calgary Zoo! Toronto Zoo CEO John Tracogna challenges Dr. ClĂ©ment Lanthier, President and CEO of the Calgary Zoo, that the Toronto Argonauts Football Club will beat the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL Grey Cup this Sunday.

If the Argos take the championship, ClĂ©ment must taste test some caribou cubes. If the Argo’s do not take the cup, John will eat wood bison cubes that our bison herd enjoy daily. The losing CEO must also wear the other team’s jersey at their next board meeting.

Who do you think is going to claim victory? #GOARGOS #GreyCup2017

We're throwing down a challenge for John Tracogna, Chief Executive Officer at The Toronto Zoo. We think our Calgary Stampeders will take the Toronto Argonauts Football Club down this Sunday at the CFL 105th Grey Cup.

If the Stamps win, John must eat wood bison cubes - mmmmm. If the Argos win, ClĂ©ment will sample caribou pellets (happy #Canada150 gentlemen....) To add to the challenge, the losing CEO must also wear the other team’s jersey at their next board meeting. ARE YOU UP FOR IT TORONTO?! #GreyCup2017 #GreyCup #yyc #yyz
