the game pics losing her digital life. I make do with what my generous companions have provided. Sorry Blue Bastardette.
5:20pm: Arrival at the Wheat Sheaf and rendezvous with the 416 Support Squadron! If you are unaware check 416 out.
6:00pm: A great round of trivia complete with Bomber swag for the winners! The Bombers were gracious enough to provide the giveaways.
6:15pm: Half price wings eaten, beer drank.
6:45pm: Depart Wheat Sheaf for SkyDump.
7:30pm: Kick off.
Q1: Unlike Ron You-Can’t-Drink Joyce Stadium, SkyDump is fully licensed. A great side effect of Torotonians not wanting to attend Argos games is that there is never a line at the beer pump. The thing I don’t understand is why the already limited selection of Labatt products offered at Jays’ games is paired down even further. You may have Bud or you may have Corona. I’m sure Bud Light was there somewhere but my eyes see it the same as water.
Q2: Seats are nice up and close to the good guys.
Half Time: Is Mike Duffy returning to journalism? Nope, it’s just Gary Lawless, though from the side they sure look alike.
Q3: The most impressive fan club of the night:
Found the Lirim Hajrullahu fan club again and he is represented just as well as last game in Hamilton.
Q4: The league’s typically terrible refs are putting on another horrible show. I can see no penalty on that wiped out TD. Getting jobbed by the ref again only his name isn’t Adre Proulx. I don’t think there’s going to be a big Drew Willy come back this week either. Ugh. Haven’t won here in years is feels like.
Four days rest… of course they were going to be gasping for air in 4th quarter. The weren’t even afforded a full practice. Why was last year’s shittiest team forced to travel and play a game on four days after their previous? Why wasn’t it Calgary or the Green Riders? There was a lot of complaining on the very sparse Argos coverage in the Toronto media about how unfair it was for the Argos to have to play on five days rest. At least they got to play two games at home. The exact same thing happened to the Argos this past Sunday. They were annihilated in the 4th quarter by a neanderthal named Kevin Glenn.
Only one more Bomber regular season game for me this year. Ottawa in October and that’s a game they should win.
