It is unbelievable what is happening with the Lions, Als and Bombers. Any one of these three teams could still make the playoffs. The Als could make it in the crossover. The Lions and Winnipeg are still in the running for 3rd place. Who would have thought at possible?
I keep expecting the Lions to win and they keep coming up with creative way to lose the game. The Lions could have put the game away against the Esks this past weekend when it was 1st and goal to goal on the Eskie's one yard line. But nope. It wasn't meant to be. The Lions' ball carrier fumbles and the Esks run it back 40 yards!
Winnipeg had an opportunity to improve their chances of taking 3rd place but Ottawa was too strong. The Bombers made it interesting by getting late TDs but too little too late.
The Als saw what happened with the Lions and the Bombers but the players were not on the same page. Glenn made his debut as an Alouette and you gotta feel sorry for the guy. Some of his passes were on the money but his receivers kept dropping the ball. It did not help Glenn's pass completion total.
Why do I headline this thread, "A mini-Grey Cup to the victor"?
Because from the Bombers, Lions, and Als bench every game has become a playoff game. The team that actually does take the 3rd and final spot in the west should be awarded a mini-Grey Cup filled with Gatorade!
