Oski Wee Wee,



Last night, us denizens of the game threads here on started to reminisce about the famous "Bishop Watch" that HTD would do during Michael Bishop-Qb'ed games last year:

I've dug through the archives for a "Bishop Watch: The Greatest Hits" sampler for your edification (in chronological order even). LOL The threads provided indicate the Bishop "era" in Winnipeg from its origins to its demise. The Nov. 1 and Nov. 8 threads linked show the Bishop Watch in action, Nov. 8 being sweeter in the schadenfreude/boat show demo sense. LMAO :wink:

In that thread, the greatest post on EVER IMHO was made (cue the fish slapping music):

Oski Wee Wee,


The CFL slate this weekend so far has broken the Ticats' way -- let's hope the Leos continue the trend! :wink:

On this page of the game thread for what would turn out being Bishop's last game is a good example of a "Bishop watch" post: ... &start=345

And of course, there were some posts after that that brought back some memories.

And wasn't it appropriate that in Bishop's last game, he threw two costly picks to seal the win for his opponents?

I might post to this thread during the game. I don't expect it to be a very good one though.

And if you want to see what was posted just before and after the celebration in the boat, here you go:

[url=] ... &start=315[/url] [url=] ... &start=330[/url]

You'll see there that I did not know why the flag was thrown at the time, as I was not paying attention to what was on the TV at the time. Oh well. :slight_smile:

LOL.. great job Russ..... I almost.... ALMOST miss

TSN's coverage begins now.

Kickoff is in a few minutes.

Kickoff time!




3-0, that 3-9 team over the 4-8 one. :wink:

10-0 Spies after the Jyles-to-Edwards burn of a blown BC coverage. Unless anything earth-shattering happens (or if others interact), I'll update every quarter-time. :wink:

On that turn over by Simon, did that Bomber lead with his helmet and essentially spear Simon in the arm?

It appears the Leos could let us down tonight. Not looking good.

No it was a clean tackle

Hi Wallace -- I believe he did. However, it was one of those bang-bang situations where Simon's spin, the tackling angle, and the fumble probably contributed to the zebras missing that. They miss the spears at QBs less it seems.

It could be called (or non-called) either way -- but I believe Simon's movements would make it one of those ones you say "let them play."

10-0 Winnipeg after one quarter. The parade route has yet to be confirmed. LOL

It’s painful to watch the BC offense. Their line isn’t helping Lulay out, Travis looks a little happy-footish, and their popcorn-popping option on the sideline has been horrendous with ball security. Printers’s elusiveness works best with the BC line in its state, but he’s been careless beyond his usual Achilles heel in that regard. Tough spot!
