Ahh...nothing quite like the season opener!
That’s right, the red and white take to the turf at McMahon Stadium this weekend for the 2012 season opener against the perennially strong Montreal Alouettes. The Stamps swept Calvillo and the Als last season for the first time since 2008, with a 38-31 home win and an impressive 32-27 at Percival Molson Stadium in Montreal.
Repeating last year’s performance will be difficult as the Als are coming off a season that saw them rack up the most points (515) and become the first team in CFL history to end the year with the league’s leading passer, rusher and receiver...an accomplishment not to be taken lightly.
Kickoff is set for 5 PM on Sunday, July 1, but the pre-game festivities will get underway long before with an official Canada Day Kickoff celebration with live bands, BBQ concession and of course plenty of tailgating excitement!
