Go Lions, Go! That was the motto of Friday night! Even though the weather was not much to enjoy (it was raining cats and dogs) – our Friday night at the BC Place was great. I hope you had a good Friday, and a good weekend, as well but let me sum ours up for everybody who had to miss out on it.
So on Friday, a bunch of about 20 INTERNeX clients who were interested in sports or wanted to experience another part of North American culture, went with us to the B.C. Lions football game. Even though it was raining, we didn’t care, the stadium was covered and we didn’t need to worry about a thing. Besides maybe about this: What are the rules, what team is ours, and how did they score now? Take a look at our Facebook pictures to get an impression…
However, the ground rules are: There are two teams with each an offense and a defense. They try to carry a ball to the other side of the field and score a touchdown. Those get the most points. The defense of the other team can try to stop them with loads of physical effort. There are a lot more technicalities to it and you can look that up here, if you are interested. After having a general idea (some of us understood a bit more, others enjoyed kind of just enjoyed the atmosphere…), we can say that the Lions were absolutely successful this Friday! They won against their opponents, the Calgary Stampeders, 26 – 7. And since we were there with such a large group, we even were mentioned on the huge screen of the stadium and got a nice group welcome.
So guys, how was your weekend? Share some of your pictures online or comment below.
