We had a very memorable day yesterday. We got home at 2:30 am and my son did indeed get up for school. Mind you, he did forget his lunch but I was able to get it to him.
So here’s the recap:
We drove down on Sunday afternoon after church and grabbed a hotel room in Burlington.
We went to the Hall of Fame on Monday morning which I think needs a major injection of cash and of expansion. We did enjoy our chance at kicking a field goal. It was kind of tough to get there given the Labour Day parade.
Then we shot over to the Tigertown store. I had to return a shirt that I had ordered which was too small. The staff was great and we bought some awesome stuff.
We had some lunch and then went down to the stadium. We walked around a bit and then we noticed the Toronto cheerleaders coming across the parking lot we informed them that they would look much better in black and gold.
Then we noticed a couple of players getting out of their cars. My son a huge Jessie Lumsden fan timidly walked toward Jessie’s vehicle hoping to be able to meet him.
Friends, you can say whatever you like about Jessie Lumsden, he was absolutely great to my son he even stood for a moment and allowed my wife to take a picture with him. It was an amazing memory for my son. Nick Kordic did the same thing which was too cool because my son has a number 41(my old high school number) Ti-Cat jersey.
As for the stadium experience,only one significant complaint; we had purchased our tickets in the non-alcoholic section for a number of reasons and were very disappointed that alcohol was all over the place in our section including just four people down from us.
As for the game, unlike others I thought Casey Printers played well. I could care less if Casey throws for touchdowns or runs for touchdowns, seven points is seven points and the two he ran for were great runs.
If you score 30 plus points in four games you ought to win at least three which I believe leaves the problem at the feet of the defence. You have to cover people but you cannot cover for more than 4 seconds without a consistant pass rush.
Overall we had a very special day which just came up a yard or so short.
