As seen on BT last Friday in the vid below and mentioned on the video board at today's game, Marco Iannuzzi, Lui Passaglia and Wally Buono will be on hand at the 39th & Cambie BCLC in Vancouver at 4pm on Wed Aug 7 for this Prospect Winery wine release event. Not sure why there's nothing about this on bclions.com. Even on their twitter feed they only retweeted BT's tweet of this video.

Sports can be a peculiar thing. When partaking in fiction, like a book or movie, we adopt a "Willing Suspension of Disbelief" for enjoyment's sake. There's a similar force at work in sports: "Willing Suspension of Rationality". If you doubt this, listen to any conversation between rival team fans. You even see it among fans of the same team. Fans argue over who's the better QB or goalie, and selectively cite stats that support their views while ignoring those that don't.

Dude kind of looks like former Detroit Red Wing Kris Draper.

Not sure when they started producing these but I see from BC Liquor's website that Jackson-Triggs has BC Lions-branded wine in both "Roaring Red" and "Roaring White" varieties for $13.99/bottle:
