    Ya I forgot to mention it was also the last time the Roughriders and Rough Riders played each other in a Grey Cup game.

      This reminds me of the old Martin Short skit about the Roughriders vs. the Rough Riders.

        19 yard run by Andrew Harris puts the Lions on the board first. PAT is good and it's 7-0 BC.

              Defenses rule the day in the first half as neither team can generate much. Lions go into halftime leading 14-6.

Halifax has been talked about for years, however there isn't an appropriate stadium anywhere outside of the current CFL cities. There's people with plenty of money out there to run a team, and judging by the crowds that have shown up for the 2 games that have played there the last couple of years, plenty of fan support. However, no-one from the government to private ownership wants to build a stadium so without a place to play there's zero chance they will ever get a team. Quebec City remains a strong possibility as Laval University draws over 15 K (that's a huge crowd for Canadian University football) a game. Plus with the built in rivalry against Montreal it would be a huge draw there. The city and province have talked about building a stadium but who knows. Generally unless it's health care related, the great sucking maw of tax dollars, governments are reluctant to spend money on anything in this country.
                    Hamilton won't even have a stadium next year, as theirs is being renovated.

                    Edit, sorry, they're out in 2013 as the stadium is being replaced for the Pan Am Games in 2015.

                      Lions looked like they were going to stroll to an easy victory, but hat's off to the Bombers as they make it close. Lions win the 99th Grey Cup 34-23. Way to go guys!!

                            I'm in. I love the CFL. It's good for when my NFL team continually loses.
