Try as the press may, we could not get new Bomber head coach Mike O’Shea to get all warm and fuzzy about wearing the big headset for the first time — and against one of his old teams, no less.
Asked what he was feeling like before his biggest day as a coach, O’Shea didn’t hesitate:
“I hope it’s not the biggest day. I feel good. Relaxed. The guys seem ready. It’s really like another day coaching, it really is. There’s a lot more people doing this, a lot more media, but it’s just par for the course.
“It’s just a game. I said before and I’m sure there are going to be people that don’t like me saying this, but I’m a Blue Bomber.”
And when that last quote was posted on Twitter, the Argos used their own account to respond simply with:
“Yup, don’t like.”
