Who doesn’t love snowball…I mean football in the snow? If you’re a CFL fan this is what the league is all about; as the games get down to the wire north of 60 the temperature usually drops south of 0.
Tonight’s matchup pits the second place Stampeders against the first place Lions in a game that means very little as far as the standings are concerned as there is no chance for either team to move up or down, but means everything as far as momentum and psyche is concerned heading into the post season.
The Stamps have had little success against the Leos this season, losing both encounters and with a trip to the 100th Grey Cup scheduled to go through BC Place, a win tonight would certainly be a major confidence boost for Hufnagel’s troops.
Another story line to watch is the return of Drew Tate after a lengthy shoulder surgery rehab, but both he and Kevin Glenn are set to split time behind centre. On the other side of the ball, rookie pivot Mike Reilly makes his second consecutive start in the absence of starter Travis Lulay and Reilly hopes to build on an impressive showing in his first ever CFL start, a 39-19 drubbing of the Eskimos last week.
Kickoff is set for 7 PM tonight and tickets are still available so pack up your Stamps Snuggie and see you at the game! For more information on the matchup and ticket sales, click on the links below.
