Imagine NFL hype for Sunday showdown
Storylines galore in Bombers-Ticats saga
The Winnipeg Free Press Nov. 5, 2009
We fans know what is at stake, Randy,
If not, it's in the last part of your article.
Some of it I have quoted here. We don't need the NFL hype.
...who would have thought it would come to this:
On Sunday, Glenn, the unwanted QB; Marshall, who didn't get the job;
Gauthier, who said, 'No thanks'; and Jones, who was told, 'No thanks,'
are all coming back in Tiger-Cats uniforms. [ colours[?] ]
Not just for another game, either.
This game is for all the money honey. Just win, baby!
Kevin Glenn wants to prove to the very fans that rejected him that they made a huge mistake.
Mike Kelly wants to prove to those same fans
that Lyle Bauer didn't make a huge mistake.
You see, this is not just about a football game anymore.
And for months now, since it was first put on the schedule,
many observers wondered,
"Geez, wouldn't it be nice
if that game meant something?"
Yeah? Well, what if it meant everything?
What if it meant Glenn's redemption?
What if it mean Kelly's validation?
What if it meant the difference between the promise
of the playoffs next week and beyond -- versus
eight long months of grumbling, excuses
and second-guessing about all of the above?
Brett Favre, eat your heart out.
