It was a hard loss for us on Sunday seeing our struggling Blue Bombers crash hard in the 99th Grey Cup. It wasn’t so much the score of 23-34 in favor of the B.C. Lions but all the emotions that were built up over a season of hoping and dreaming.
Mr. Doug Brown, has by all accounts played his last down of football in this or any other league. He is the elder statesman of the team in most interviews and one hell of a battler on the defensive line. For Doug to retire with 11 seasons as a Blue Bomber under his sizable belt without a Grey Cup ring on his finger is a shame. But that is the vexing thing about pro sports.
Sometime the most deserving don’t win.
