Labour Day notes: Game Day

  • Print

It seems like an eternity since the Bombers last played – 17 days to be exact since the loss in Montreal – so it’s finally time for them to get back to work.

Love the Labour Day Classic and all the hype that goes around it and this afternoon I get to sit alongside my compadre and hall of famer Bob Knuckles Irving. My only hope is they don’t disconnect my microphone before the end of the first quarter. :)

Not sure if there’s any concrete proof of this or if it’s just a byproduct of the cool temperatures here, but while exploring lastnight we didn’t see the usual craziness that accompanies the LDC. Still a good collection of Bomber fans, but it’s harder and harder to get tickets to Rider games and I wonder if Bomber Nation is being shut out by their prairie rivals.

Wandering around we stopped in at a watering hole and saw a couple of sets of a band called ‘Mascara’ fronted by a female lead singer. Not sure how the grunge-looking dude on guitar and the geek on bass feel about being in a band called ‘Mascara’ but....

By the way, you may have heard the Royal Canadian Mint unveiled a Rider ‘loonie’ this week. Rider fans have come up with this version of a Bomber loonie -- pictured above.

Some leftover video from the Rider availability on Saturday.

Here’s Barrin Simpson talking about facing his old teammates:

 

 

And here’s QB Darian Durant on today’s contest:

 

 

SCRATCHES: Not dressing for the Bombers today are FB Daryl Stephenson, LB Courtney Smith, RB Yvenson Bernard and QB Joey Elliott.
