What amazes is me is how sick the Leos were on Saturday night yet they still managed to win the game. Just finished reading the article on the game in the Vancouver Sun. The following players were sick or injured:
#51 - Barrin Simpson - battling flu & diahrrea (sp?) left the game prior to the second half and took in 2 L of IV so that he could continue the game in the second half.
#23 - Mark Washington broken collar bone in the 3rd quarter, but kept playing
#31 - Dante Marsh - broken finger, kept playing
#9 - Barron Miles - out with Chicken Pox
#2 - Sam Young - damaged heel
#96 - Tyrone Williams - lacerated left hand, 6 stitches at half time, kept playing
#26 - Carl Kidd, #3 - Ryan Thelwell, #82 - Jason Claremont, #64 - Angus Reid plus another 6 - 8 players were all suffering from flus & colds.
#16 - Buck Pierce - got over his flu, but lost 9 lbs since the previous Monday.
Almost half the team was sick or injured...AND THEY STILL MANAGED TO WIN THE GAME!! That tells me, and should tell everyone in BC that the 2005 Lions are THE REAL THING!!
Here comes the Grey Cup...back home to BC!!
