Dogs visit Clippers tonight for deciding Game 5, UPDATE - Second fan bus possible
It's a new experience for the Clippers as it's their first time facing elimination. For the Bulldogs, it's their third straight game in this situation. The Bulldogs are well aware of the pressure and motivation that comes with your backs against the wall, and they need to continue to raise their level of play. It will be interesting to see how the Clippers react - do they feel the pressure, benefit from it, wilt from it, or something else entirely? Of course a Clipper loss doesn't see their season end tonight as they will play in the Western Canada Cup as hosts, with a chance to go to the RBC, but you can bet they are a proud group like any team and they don't want to take the backdoor into the tournament, even if it would leave them well rested and a leg up on everyone else.
The Bulldogs will once again be sending a Fan Bus down for Game 5 tonight - the office was open selling seats after the game last night, and will be doing so again today so get down there after 10am or give them a call. Here's hoping there's a huge crowd cheering the Dogs on tonight! Wouldn't mind seeing the Dogs fans taking a page out of the Clippers fans book and bringing a drum - nice to get some rhythm and a beat to get the fans going!
UPDATE - BUS FULL, SECOND BUS IS POSSIBLE IF THE DEMAND IS STRONG ENOUGH, CALL THE BULLDOGS OFFICE ASAP IF YOU WANT TO GO (250) 723 4412
UPDATE UPDATE - SECOND BUS CONFIRMED, IF YOU WERE WAITING THINKING IT WOULDN'T GO, DO NOT WAIT ANY LONGER OR YOU MIGHT NOT GET A SEAT!
WAY TO GO BULLDOG FANS!

Tonight's 1st intermission guest is Bulldogs Forward Manny Gialedakis, while Powell River Kings play-by-play voice Alex Rawnsley is the 2nd intermission guest.
Quite the day for the Kings and Grizzlies as with cancellations to Ferry sailings both teams have been forced to take the "Amazing Race" roadie down the Mainland for two boats before catching a third boat from Horseshoe Bay back to the Island, I assume? Wowzers.

A big win for the Tier 4 Bulldogs wasn't enough to see them advance at the Provincials in Lillooet, with a 12-3 win yesterday over Whitehorse giving them a 1 and 2 record. Sorry to hear they are heading home, but nice to see them go out with a big win.
