The Labour Day Classic will be a wonderful time
As the Riders continue a fabulous climb

The new Stadium will really be rocking
A win by the Riders will no longer be shocking

And what can one say about that comment by Weston Dressler
Except his interview was like one by Ed Whalen and a wrestler

The beer will flow, the noise will rise
The Bombers fans will not believe their eyes

But witness their Blue & Gold team get defeated quite soundly
And listen as Rider fans cheer Kevin Glenn and company so roundly

They will come from near and they will come from far
All dressed like its Halloween in the local bar

Yes, the Greatest Show on Earth is what we expect
And after its all over 620 will have old Ballsy and company dissect

Pretty even matchup if you take W/L record out of it but I hope it doesn't come down to kickers because Medlock is a machine!

Key to Rider victory is ball security and penalties.Bombers stole that last game..mainly because of a few busts on the secondary.But overall,they handed that game to bombers by untimely turnovers and penalties due to challenges.

The Riders defence will continue to cause problems for their adversaries. Which will make the Bombers try to use Harris far more than they should. The crowd noise helps the Riders defence shut down the Bombers offence. Kevin Glen and his offence melodically build 3/4 time rhythm through the 1st Qtr. which brings points in the 2nd Qtr. Bombers defence presently positioned at 7th will not be able to stop Kevin Glen and the Riders offence of having successful long drives with points on every drive in the 2nd half. Riders win big today and next week in Winnipeg drive Bomber fans nuts by squeaking out an almost justifiable 2 point walk off field goal victory on Bombers soil.
Go Riders Go.
