This weekend all of Winnipeg will be glued to a TV; we are in the Grey Cup and we did it the hard way. We had to win two games on the road. I am excited to watch the game. When I was little, I would watch every Grey Cup with my father; it was kind of our father daughter time.
I still watch the game every year; as it gives a warm feeling about my Dad.
This year I am looking forward to this game to see what our Blue Bombers can do with the new quarterback system of using two in the game. We have an advantage as Zach Collaros has only played the last three games for us. The other teams are still trying to figure out our play selections. Having Chris Streveler, we are able to mix up our plays and keep the Hamilton defense off guard.
Our city is so excited to be back in the big game. The way we have been playing on the road for two playoff games make this year’s Bomber team look great. The season started off great; then Matt Nichols got hurt. It took time and patience for our team to jell again and picking up Zach Collaros at the trading deadline was a great move on the Blue Bomber part. Saskatchewan started their season with Zach Collaros and traded him to Toronto and then Toronto traded him to us; he is one of the reasons we are now in the Grey Cup. It’s Karma.
It so exciting to see our city come out and support our team; it makes me proud to be a Winnipegger. I am sure every bar will be hosting a Grey Cup party and many people will be hosting one themselves with their friends. Let’s all enjoy the game! Let’s go Blue and Gold!
A reminder that Hypnos Mattresses are having a price increase in December; if you want a new mattress the time to decide and act is now.
