The message was clear from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers when they touched down in Vancouver on Tuesday night ahead of Sundays Grey Cup game against B.C. They are ready to enter the Lions den. "Its finally starting to sink in. We have one game left and its the biggest game of the year," Bombers quarterback Buck Pierce said. "A lot of our team has never been in these situations before, so its important that we stay on pace and treat it like a week of prep. [We have] to be as focused as weve ever been." Winnipeg has found success in Vancouver this year, emerging victorious in their only previous trip by a score of 30-17 on Aug. 13. But the Grey Cup is a different story. The Bombers know what they are up against when they step into B.C. Place and have already begun to embrace the underdog status that comes with playing the biggest game of the year on the road. "Looking at how B.C.s fared in the second half of the season theyre well deserved of being the favourite," said defensive tackle Doug Brown. "The situation theyre in as a contending team thats playing at home with a sold-out crowd. Theyre going to be a very tough opponent for us." The Lions have - over the course of the season - been stellar at home. With a perfect 5-0 record at home since the team moved back into B.C. Place, the team has certainly found new life under the roof. Still, the Bombers hope to carry the momentum of an airport send-off from their fans into enemy territory. "They saw us all the way to the plane," said Pierce. "Thats the way theyve been all year for us out there. But now, you know, were here. Were ready for a good week of prep and [to] get the festivities and [to] get everything ready to go." And now that the team has hit the ground, theyre looking forward to getting down to business. "Everybodys been scrambling around trying to get family members situated and get everything situated before the game," said defensive back Jovon Johnson. "But for the most part I think weve settled down and are looking forward to playing in the big game." nfl jerseys cheap.

VAL GARDENA, Italy -- The first classic downhill of the World Cup season was abandoned Saturday because of strong winds, enraging the two Frenchman who held the lead but drawing approval from Alpine standouts Aksel Lund Svindal and Bode Miller. Despite several delays, 21 competitors had completed their runs on the twisty and terrain-filled Saslong course before organizers decided to call it off. When the race was stopped, Johan Clarey held a 0.11-second lead over teammate Adrien Theaux, with Patrick Kueng of Switzerland in third, 0.26 back. Clarey was seeking his first World Cup victory. His best previous result was third in this downhill two years ago. "There wasnt so much wind on the track. It wasnt dangerous," Clarey said. "Weve had so many races with windy conditions. I dont know if (its because) there is two French on the top. Maybe if it was two Austrians or two Swiss it wouldnt be the same." Erik Guay of Mont-Tremblant, Que., stood fourth and another Frenchman, Yannick Bertrand, was fifth. Robbie Dixon of Whistler, B.C., was ninth. Guay, who was poised for his best result of the season, didnt think it was too dangerous, and criticized Hujara for calling off the race too quickly. "You didnt see any guy go off backward or be sketchy. Its not fair, but its never fair. Lake Louise wasnt fair and Beaver Creek wasnt fair," the Canadian said, referring to the opening two downhills this season. "Theres always wind -- its an outdoor sport." "Most of the time I agree with Gunters decision but not this one," added Guay, the downhill world champion. "There was no reason to cancel so soon, he could have put it off a bit." Hans Olsson, the Swede who led both training runs, was lying sixth, while Svindal and downhill World Cup champion Didier Cuche were far back in 15th and 18th. The race started without problem but then there was about a half-hour delay after Cuche commpleted his run with the No.dddddddddddd 18 bib, as the wind blew large snow drifts over the course, prompting organizers to take down the banner above the finish line. Forerunners were brought back onto the course and the race resumed with Fridays super-G winner Beat Feuz placing 12th. After Svindal and Klaus Kroell then completed their runs, mens World Cup director Gunter Hujara called the race off just as Miller was getting ready to start. "I (am) fully understanding of the emotions for those that were in the lead but I also have to think about those that had luck because we had very good conditions with the wind," Hujara said. "Even with the last racer on the course, conditions were so quick changing that we couldnt predict what would happen and thats why we cancelled the race. "It was at the edge of being still safe and we did not like to risk anything and thats why we cancelled it before a bad fall," Hujara added. Svindal and Miller agreed with the decision. "I think it was the right call. If wind hits you on the camel jumps thats a career-ending injury," Miller said, referring to the longest jump on the course, which launches skiers into the air for more than 80 metres. Added Svindal: "We will never have 100 per cent equal conditions, but today I think it got too extreme." Val Gardena is one of the four classic downhills that have featured nearly every year on the World Cup circuit since the late 1960s, along with Wengen, Switzerland; Kitzbuehel, Austria; and Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. The International Ski Federation did not immediately announce if the race would be made up at a later date. The next downhill is in Bormio on Dec. 29. The mens circuit now moves across the Gardena pass to nearby Alta Badia for giant slalom and slalom races Sunday and Monday. Ted Ligety of the United States will be aiming for his third GS win in four races this season. ' ' '
