Wow, wow, wow!
Tuned in just before the Winnipeg/Lions game got under way and made myself all nice and comfy. Jumbo bag of Ruffles extra thicks and a small tub of bacon/onion dip on my lap and all ready to go. Then I needed to make that proverbial "pit stop" that guys just need to do. And I don't even drink beer! :lol:
A minute later...no... less than a minute later I'm done and rush to the living room to catch the opening kick off only to have my wife say, " Winnipeg 7, the Lions no score". "WHAT??? You're joking, right?"
Fumbles, interceptions, dumb penalties. What more could a Winnipeg fan ask of the Lions? I thought, "Oh noooooooo. We are dead!" And it wasn't even the end of the first quarter.
Then the Lions settled down. Harris filled in well for Mallet. Grice- Mullen the "grease mouse" seems to up the level of his game whenever he's playing under duress. I'm sure every time he drops the ball Wally gives him the evil eye.
Too bad for Buck. I hope it is not serious. But Travis Lulay? My goodness. What a class act.
After Williams got ejected for misconduct earlier, and the Lions had to endure the chant, "B.C. sucks, B.C. sucks [or words to that effect] I figured Winnipeg was really going to stick it to the Lions. But Lulay obviously had other plans.
The final time Winnipeg punted the ball with about a minute left it was Lulay who ran for 3 consecutive first downs to seal the game. I think he remembered all too well what happened last week against Edmonton. Remember how B.C. allowed Edmonton back into the game because B.C. could not get any first downs in the 4th quarter until the game winning sequence? Lulay is truly a pro and is a great QB asset to the Lions.
Now, if Calgary loses next week and the Lions knock off Saskatchewan, the B.C. will be in sole possession of first place....if just for a week thanks to the recent tie between Calgary and Saskatchewan.
Excellent come back B.C. Lions! :rockin:
