Late to the party but I’ll also add just how much I enjoyed the game and resultant Bomber victory yesterday. Sure it’s irksome but we’re talking about a Rider home game on Labour Day weekend, so the (literal) mouth-frothing green mob always takes centre stage, and the broadcast follows suit(or).
Dominant D, the effective O, and mainly-meh-but-not-ultimately-costly special teams play totally outmatched Sask. Pretenders got thrashed in their own barn and it was ******* glorious. Bombers players knew how much it cut deep.
Outside of beating them in the playoffs, I can’t remember so thoroughly revelling in green tears and handwringing. I was screaming at the TV “ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!!” as rider fans poured out with a minute left. The looks my wife gave me you’d think I was a vampire rolling around in a tub of green blood.
Anyways can’t wait for next Saturday. Carry on!
