The 98th edition of the Grey Cup is in the history books as the Montreal Alouettes beat the Saskatchewan Roughriders 21-18.
Another close game that saw it come down to late in the forth quarter, as the Green side hoped for a last second miracle that wasn’t meant to be.
What a great piece of Canadiana as most in the country gathers around their tradition of a rec room tail gate party.
It’s not BBQing at Ralph Wilson or even a sterile Bill’s game at the Rogers Centre, but it is ours.
My only concern was it would have been nice to see the colourful array of fans that make the trek every year to see their game, no matter what the city, represented during the half time show.
Bachman & Turner did a great job proving they can still command a stadium crowd, but where was the crowd?
Penned up in two stalls beside the stage, separated by jersey colour, so camera crews could cut away to a fan shot when needed?
After 3 songs eventually the green space in front of the stage was filled with the Pepsi Max dancers.
And some razz me about NASCAR?
Come on….Keep the Pepsi dancers in the end zone for ‘sweet’ shots and open the space in front for fans.
After all isn’t that who the game is for?
