I get closer, the drunker the game is.
I have reason to suspect Magic Mike (O'Shea) is freaking out at the thought of clinching 1st place with 4 games left on the regular sked.
O'Shea is a football contrarian. He knows a team that clinches will become fat 'n sassy. I suspect he'll throw a wrench into the bomber prep this week - and the Esks somehow come out of it with either a win or a tie.
O'Shea needs something to punish, aka motivate his troops. A loss at this point of the season might serve his purposes.
NB. O'Shea will not even hint at this possibility. He'll just ramble on about winning the week and going 1-0 for the week's schedule!
Well if we DO clinch 1st with that many games remaining it'll be a first. There's no way we'll know what to do that kind of down time.
I'm hoping our starters don't show up 4 weeks later with beer guts and hangovers.
Got one now.
Are you sure it's a beer gut? Maybe it's something easier to get rid of... like a tumor.
Beer guts are hard to shrink. Why? The beer gods made beer taste way too good.
