If B.C. wins their remaining 2 games but Calgary still edges out the Lions for top spot in the west this year they can blame this not on their dismal performance against Edmonton on Friday October 10 but on their terrible performance against Montreal last August 29. Were you there or did you witness it on TV? Do you remember when they had the ball on Montreal’s one yard line. On the last play of the game they couldn’t punch it in. Ahhhh…but Montreal gets a penalty. B.C. gets a reprieve. The football gods have smiled on B.C.
Once again last play of the game. B.C. tries to punch it and they’re stopped! What’s this??? The gods have spoken yet again? Another Montreal penalty? Ohhhh…the absurdity. But, what the hey. Who’s going to complain? B.C. gets a 3rd chance from the one! A THIRD ATTEMPT! Could they do it? Nope. But to add insult to injury B.C. was called for having no end so even if they’d gotten it in it would not have mattered. The penalty of course was declined and Montreal would go home happy campers. But do you know what that penalty against B.C. could have meant had they gotten the ball into the end zone? It would have meant that even though B.C. got a penalty they would have been granted yet a 4TH chance to score the game winning touchdown! But all because they couldn’t move the ball 3 feet in 3 attempts B.C. may well finish 2nd or even 3rd! Oh the shame of it. :oops:
