Considering all U-Sports is doing is "stay the course" , and play the odds while praying that an Ontario Team from not too far will make it in , I find the whole " rah-rah " tone of the Press release more annoying than exciting.
And for the love of God, go easy on the "tremendous opportunity " when it's the 5th time a City is hosting.
It would have had the potential to be "tremendous" if it had been played in Ottawa for the 1st time , during the 150th Canadian anniversary , with a GC Champion CFL team in town and a big local rivalry between the GG and Ravens
to pump up the fans.
But when what you're looking for is to go back to a place where you jump "bombed" miserably, the word you are looking for is not tremendous, it's horrendous.
And memo to Arcelor-bla-bla-bla : the R&O is not 9-1 in Arceor-bla-bla-bla Vanier Cups it is 1-0 , if you need to hook yourself to the R&O's success that badly then kindly send checks to the Nice people at Desjardins, Telus, Endbridge and a couple others who were sponsoring the event when those wins happened.
Here, now, old grumpy me is back.!
Train ride to a home game..$80, season tickets $198. Beer and hotdogs at the game $20, Championship Cap and player's jersey,$100.
Trip to Vanier Cup 2012,$500. Trip to 2013 Vanier Cup and having a cool lunch with Jim Mullin the next day, $200.
Being a fan of the only team with 4 consecutive years in the Championship Game, 3 Vanier Cups in front of THEM , 8 Vanier Cups ahead of UdeMontreal...PRICELESS
