BC Lions – Who would’ve thought?

I have always avoided BC Lions games like the plague, as I have always had a sublime indifference to the sport of football. However, last night BC played Saskatchewan, and what an experience it was!

Our seats were close to the action, and I found myself constantly distracted by the many events that happen during a football game! The machismo! The athleticism! The cheerleaders! The tiny footballs! The lion mascot! The cheerleaders! And nobody got ZidaneD!!

And if you live in Vancouver and you don’t know who “Crazy P” is, you are missing out on one of the weirdest traditions this city has to offer. I definitely recommend the event, even if you detest organized sports like I do.

    Damn, you beat me to it. I actually hated the game. Football is boring enough on TV, but live it’s terrible. There’s so much stoppage of play, so little actual game. For every ten seconds of action you have to sit through ten minutes of prep time.

    Give me the Canucks or the Whitecaps anytime. Now those are sports.

    + cheerleaders
    + anthropomorphic lion

    We’re considering going to a lions game just to have “been to a game” but on Jeffery’s note…

    Please see the above formula to discover the fun factor. Replacing a few variables or two for those of the heterosexual female persuasion will give us a similar result. Viz:

    7.00 coolers X 3.5
    +hulking beasts of men with huge shoulders, arms, necks, and (with all the equipment)disproportionally small legs.
    +Crazy P and his godforsaken drum
    =family fun
