Friday Football Frenzy: Both Sides of the Border

Orchard Park is in the headlines! Here in Kelowna, BC the Orchard Park Shopping Centre is forty years old. With 170+ stores and services, it offers the largest selection of retailers between Calgary and Vancouver.

Orchard Park is where the Buffalo Bills play their football games and in this preview clip from this weekend's "Thurman Thomas Show", I mentioned it in my first sentence. But it's not about how you start, but how you finish. Sorry New England!


Big football game tonight in Vancouver as the BC Lions move into their renovated digs. BC Place Stadium came to life in 1983 in preparation for Expo '86 and has now undergone a $560-million facelift which includes a retractable roof and a huge centre-hung video board (only the Dallas Cowboys' is bigger). The BC Lions are on a roll with their first 5-game winning streak since 1985 where the club has allowed less than 20 points each time.

The Buffalo Bills should not have any problems this weekend in Cincinnati. We have beaten them ten times in a row! I hope I have not spoken too soon...
