I have lived in Winnipeg for 33 years (all my life) and know what the weather will be like come Grey Cup Day in Winterpeg.
Who ever the teams are, prepare for a frozen field that will be shoveled before the game and at half time. Prepare for a strong north wind and even less shelter now that the old Winnipeg arena has be destroyed.
Sorry boy's, no dome, no shelter.
If the Bombers make it to the big game, home feild and elements advantage are in their favor.
Hey Ricky, I wonder if you have ever played in weather like that in Miami. I would like to see him play in the Grey Cup Game this year, just to laugh my head off. One of the funniest things for me is watching rookie Americans come play in Winnipeg in late October, early November. It is funny as hell. I remember the first year Kenton Keith played, he was being interviewed and all you saw was his lips quivering. It was funny.
I believe it is stupid to have the Grey Cup in Winnipeg.We have three covered stadiums in Canada and we should strictly use these locations to host the Grey Cup.We do not want this game to be held in freezing,snowy,windy conditions.
I believe that anyone who says the the GC should not be played in Winnipeg or anywhere else knows nothing about the essence of what Canadian football is all about. Covered stadiums some years, fine, but some years it might just be cold and wet or whatever, whatever happens to be the case. To think otherwise is ridiculous, and just not Canadian.
Seattle And Philly are nothing like Winnipeg in the winter…But we actually had a pretty pleasant Nov last year, and the way things are looking so far this year it could be pretty mild (probablly about zero to -10 degrees Celcius. The scary part is it could also be from -20 to -30 :o
I think this could definitly play in the favour of the Bombers (if they were there ) as long as they were playing BC…Sask, and Edm (and to a lesser extent Cal) will be pretty used to the cold
