Well kinda, the national anthem was the best all year, i can't really comment on that as i haven't been to all the games.
Half-time show... scared me a little...
Tribute to Allen was WAYYYYYYY to LONG. way too time consuming, and killed any momentum which the game had actually been developing. Would have been better saved for the beginning of next game IN TORONTO. with highlights and such. start the game fifteen minutes later next week and DO IT THEN!
almost half the stadium was cheering, and half was booing, and the rest just wanted to watch some football.
an announcement over the speakers would have been appropriate with a quick wave from damon. everything else was way too over the top.
Well, we all can't agree, Espo. What I might enjoy others despise. LOL @ the half-time show comment. But, it was still kind of cool, no?
I didn't hear anyone booing during the Allen tribute. What I saw and heard was the fans - Hamilton or Toronto - standing in unison applauding. I was on the South Side and that was pretty much the standard.
Don't you guys remember the mid-game stoppage at the Sky Dome a few years ago for Danny Mac passing for 50,000 yards. It was appropriate then and it was appropriate 2 nights ago. These are huge career and league milestones and deserve to be acknowledged then and there.
i agree with espo.. the damon tribute.. WAY too long. I think it's great that he's got the record.. now let's play some football. even when DMac passed the record there was no interview required. and it would have been much more appriciated in t.o.
