Ivor Wynne vs The Roman Coliseum
On of the Forbidden Website Board of Directors just emailed us after visiting the Coliseum in Rome. A few jokes bounced back and forth:
“Did you find our seats??
“What’s the Alumni Room look like??
“Are the visiting dressing rooms up to Doug Brown’s standards??
But it really got me thinking. IWS is like a modern Roman Coliseum. What if we had been owned by Hadrian, Nero and Tiberius instead of Ballard, Braley and Grant?
Dancing Don MacPhereson would have been stoned at center field
Adrion Smith would have never played for the Argos – he would have been hung from the goal post after the dropped interception against the Western Riders kept us from the playoffs. The same goal post that a drunken fan climbed and sat atop for over an hour at the end of that game.
Anthony Calvillo would never have won a Grey Cup with Montreal. The Tiger in the end zone would have been unleashed upon him during his disastrous 1996 season.
Ozzies two finger gesture to the crowd was reminiscent of the Emperors “thumbs up or thumbs down? judgment against a fighter.
Would TC still be allowed to drive his “chariot? around the battlefield?
Ivor Wynne – a modern Roman Coliseum.
