I was having a problem streaming with Firefox, switched to Chrome and no problem.

I'm no country mouse but this halftime show is definitely a hit.

As a former TV guy, that ladies and gentlemen is how you do a half time show.

I agree, first rate production (saying that as a non-TV guy lol). I don't really have any issues with the rest of it either, other than the stadium just looks like crap. I don't know how easy it is to paint the soccer lines over and not have these ugly green marks because you aren't going to make them match the turf perfectly. I do think the CFL does overdo it a bit with the onfield ads.

Excellent spot with Urban in the booth, they really got the most out of him. How it all was staged with a big name was something to build upon in future. Perfectly done.

Yes, it was a good bit. "Play colour man, tell us what you see." "Wow, it goes fast" lol

Agreed and well done, but half-time shows are always meh.

Pretty sure Ambrosie said something along these lines. At very least made it known Stamps need a new stadium.

Well this one wasn't, I don't like country, don't know Urban as a performer and I still watched and enjoyed it (same for the pregame group, the Beaches).

The game is almost over and Hamilton hasn't shown up yet.
I wouldn't wait too much longer to start playing.

Did anyone else think that was a touchdown. Yeah, the ball was loose but if you watch the end of the video his hand was underneath it and glued to the ball as he lifted it.

Bombers want this bad, they counter any momentum the Cats can get going. For a game that isn't that close, it is still compelling.

I only caught part of his pre-game interview so I didn't hear it (if that's when he said it). It's well known they need a new stadium, but is Calgary going to do one anytime soon, especially given the fight over doing the Flames arena? Did Ambrosie come out and say they won't host another GC until they get a new stadium? It's not like they run a rotation, and this is only their 5th time hosting it so it's probably likely they will get something done in the next 10-15 years before their time to host comes around again.

Guess the Bombers don’t need to fire the coach anymore!

Congrats Bombers! Nice win, and what a playoff run. They beat the three regular season powerhouses Calgary, Sask and Hamilton, and do it by allowing 14, 13, and 12 points. Not allowing even a single touchdown in the last two games. Great to see Collaros beat the team he was playing when he was sidelined by the cheapshot, hope Simoni Lawrence is looking in the mirror right now.


That said, it would be nice to see Hamilton win it next year.


Also hats off to Calgary on the halftime show. Best one I've seen in years.
