Last night I watched my first ever CFL football game in person. In fact, it was my first CFL game ever to watch. We went to BC Place to watch the Lions vs Blue Bombers. Even though I don’t follow sporting events- it was a great evening out with friends.
My wife and I parked about a ten minute walk away from the arena. As we made our way to the event, the sun was setting, creating a beautiful skyline. When we arrived, we ordered some beer and poutine. Our view of the game was right on the sideline, almost center field and in the second row.
The action was so close to us throughout the game that I found myself really getting into it. I cheered and stood up numerous times as I got excited by the plays on the field.
There is something to be said about the energy at a sports event. The crowd and the buzz that goes on. I thoroughly enjoyed our night out and would gladly do it again sometime. The last sports team I need to see play in BC is the soccer team- The Whitecaps. I have already watched hockey, baseball, basketball (when the Grizzlies were here), and now CFL.
Do you enjoy being at a game? Are you more of a hockey fan instead of football? Let me know in the comments.
What a beautiful view from the stadium! It reminds me of the San Francisco Giant’s MLB stadium in California. I didn’t start out as a baseball fan, but fell in love with the stadium and the energy like you mentioned, and it was fun to keep up with them as a way to connect to friends who were fans. 🙂
