Bring on the Vanier Cup
The Saskatchewan Huskies face the Laval Rouge et Or in what should be quite a contest considering they're expecting a high of -20 C in Saskatoon. I hope the fans in attendance brought their woollies.
UPDATE. I'm going to be watching and writing on the game as it happens tomorrow, so feel free to email me or comment in this thread as things get going.
The game is going to be The Score's "most ambitious" broadcast to date, according to The Globe and Mail's Bill Houston, and will be shot in high definition. There will also be pre- and postgame shows, which is about as "big time" as the Canadian university sports scene has ever been.
It's great to see the network stepping up and providing unique Canadian content — despite the fact the audiences aren't always there.
For curious readers in the U.S. and overseas, the Vanier Cup will be webcast on universitysport.ca
I'll have more tomorrow as things get underway.
