Get Loud with the BC Lions
As a relatively new Vancouver-ite, going to a CFL game has always been on my must-do list.
Growing up in the English countryside, the NFL and Canadian Football League had always seemed so glamorous and thrilling.
When I went to a preseason game to see the BC Lions play, I was not disappointed. In fact, it was incredible.
I had no idea about the sheer passion that the supporters have for their team. They dress up, wear full face paint and cheer their players at the top of their lungs.
I saw, close up, the motivation and drive to win on the faces of the players as they ran through the tunnel and out in front of their supporters. I didn’t know just how swept-up in the enthusiasm I’d get.
The season opens on Saturday and I’ll be taking a fellow-Dad to take part in the family-friendly raucous to kick off the summer’s fun. We’ve both been so busy that finding the time to grab a quiet (or very noisy) drink has fallen from our priorities, but it’s something that I really should put back on the list.
As it’s the 65th season opener for the Lions, they’ve got a special $65 offer.

I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the Father’s Day weekend!
I’ll be there. Will you?
Disclaimer: The BC Lions gave me special permission to be on the field during the warm-up as provided some tickets for the super fun games! I’m too excited to be part of this summer’s BC Lions Pride. As a reminder, if you want to save a little on your tickets, use promo code JAMESRCS.
