The BC Lions hope to prove all of CFL.ca wrong…
Every week, the CFL.ca writing staff makes their picks for the weekly slate of games. Usually there is some mix but in the case of the BC Lions vs. Calgary Stampeders Western Final, there is an overwhelming consensus….
Well, the BC Lions took exception to this and are using it as fuel to help them on Sunday. An article on BCLions.com by Matt Baker talks about how they are embracing the underdog role.
At their facility this could be spotted on their TV screens…
The quote is perfect and it will certainly be a great pleasure for the Lions if they can pull the upset on Sunday.
LB Adam Bighill was quoted by BCLions.com:
“IT’S GOOD BECAUSE NO ONE PICKED US TO BE HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. AT THE BEGINNING WE WERE PICKED TO BE DEAD LAST. WE’RE ALL WE NEED IN THIS LOCKER ROOM, WE BELIEVE IN EACH OTHER AND IT’S BEEN THAT WAY ALL YEAR. SUNDAY IS GOING TO BE NO DIFFERENT.”
