I find it quite fascinating that coach Mike O'Shea is a nice 5-0 in Grey Cup games as a player-assistant coach & Head coach :wink: If you believe in the Law of Averages, the :smiley_cat: :smile_cat: :joy_cat: are in a win win situation. :rofl:

Looking forward to Brandon Banks going off for 150 yards, 2 touchdowns as the Ticats pull it put 27-23.

Oskee wee wee

It would be a loooong offseason for you if the Bombers go back to back, hey?

Thankfully the season starts early May and this season goes an extra month or so

Early May? Didn't know that...seems like a pretty early start.

Rumblings they will push the season back and preseason/camp to start early May

I hadn’t heard that either but I hope they finally do start in May.

"Evans was sacked six times and threw two interceptions in the 2019 loss."

He has to do better this time. I don't want to see a boring one-sided route. Nobody does. If there was ever a time for Hamilton to run the ball effectively against us, this is it. GIVE US SOMETHING AWESOME TO WATCH!!!

If we're going to eat TigerCat today, let's chew our food slowly. Verrrry slowly. :grimacing:

I actually prefer my team to dominate thoroughly and throughout, but am always up for a good game.

Twas the day of Grey Cup when all through the club house
Not a player was stirring, not even a Coach
The uniforms were hung by the lockers with care,
In hopes that St. Randy Ambrosie soon would be there;

The players were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of touchdowns danced in their heads;
And mamma in her kitchen, and I watching TV ,
We wondered out loud, if Andrew Harris will be MVP

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the couch to see what was the matter.
I saw hundreds of blue people fresh off a WF win .
An invasion from Winnipeg, let the game begin

The sunrise on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a crowd of our fans, all dressed in Bomber gear.

With our wide receivers so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be Lawler & Nic
More rapid than the Ti-Cats that came here today,
The commenters shouted, as they called play by play.

"Now, ADAMS! now, BIGHILL! now, MILLER! and CASTILLO!
On, COLLAROS! on ALFORD! on, GRANT and KONGBO!
From the start of the coin toss, to the very last play
There will be plays that will thrill till the end of the game

The Hamilton winds will blow, and the snow it may fly,
They wait on a challenge from the eye in the sky,
So now it's 3rd and short on the cold frozen ground,
It's up to McGuire to get the first down.

The game is now over and Winnipeg has won,
They have another Grey Cup, man, that was fun,
Winnipeg spoke not a word, but went straight to the stage
Bombers received the Grey Cup, much to the Ti-Cats rage .

As the Hamilton Ti-Cats had fought to and fro,
The Bombers win the MVP, MVC & Grey Cup , that's two in a row,
Bombers now have a dozen GC Rings, man, that's out of site,
Another great Bombers Grey Cup, and to all a GOOD-NIGHT.

That Wynn fella looked like he was ready to punch that Winnipeg lineman in the face. Right on

How in the hell is there no gameday thread for the biggest game?? :angry:

Maybe you should start one.

There has been some posting on the 2021 GCC thread. But it’s not really they usual CFL thread.

Isn't one auto generated?

I thought so but not this time. We could start one or just continue on the other one I mentioned.

Whatever, I won't be posting much once the game is back on.
Need to get Hamilton out quick, we'll be kicking off again as we want the wind in the 4th, Worst thing would be to give them any kind of momemtum.
There's been alot of gritty/dirty stuff, but Kudos to the Cats they came to fight.
