Ami Mizuno and Me - CFL Uniform Models in 1985 by FromEquestria2LA Ami Mizuno and Me - CFL Uniform Models in 1985 by FromEquestria2LA
My thanks to :iconblackmorghann: for this commissioned artwork @ Anime Expo 2016! :D

CONFESSION TIME: Back when I first discovered Sailor Moon in the 1990s, my fave senshi of all was Sailor Mercury/Ami Mizuno. So, what is this?

Well, I'm also a CFL (Canadian Football League) fan, as I've stated before, and this would be Ami and I at a uniform unveiling ceremony for the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders, on April 23, 1985, when the team changed up its look for the first time in its long history, and modernized its logo (a tweaked version was introduced in 2016). This uniform set was used until 1989 (it was last worn during their Grey Cup title of 1989).

Here's a news article mentioning the change from the Ottawa Citizen the following day (April 24, 1985): i43.photobucket.com/albums/e36…

Here is a IRL look of the white jersey (which Ami has on): cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get…
And an IRL look of the green jersey (which I have on): i43.photobucket.com/albums/e36…

Lastly, of note is the black belt I have on the uniform; both jerseys used silver pants, as shown in the white jersey pic; IRL, the switch was made to green belts possibly after the unveiling. Another noteworthy thing: I am NOT wearing my glasses! XD I hope you like this! :D

I don't own Sailor Moon or the Saskatchewan Roughriders. :D

Even though the Roughriders took the silver out of the logo, it still looks the same as it has for 30+ years. I say the Rider logo is up there with the Chiefs, Steelers, Packers and even the Cowboys in terms of timelessness.
