Rich Kilgour kickin' it old school in a
light-hearted moment at Bear Mountain Arena
Six Nations Chiefs Head Coach Rich Kilgour made a fashion statement at Bear Mountain Arena when he broke out his 1994 Chiefs' jacket. That was the year of the first in a three-year run of Mann Cup titles for the Chiefs. Kilgour was a key figure in those Chiefs' wins, scoring 2 or 3 points a game while contributing defensive prowess and leadership. Now he's running the show with the team that it trying to win Six Nations' first Mann since those mid-90s glory days. So while the jacket may be fun to pull out and wear around the arena for a bit, it does bring with it some deeper meaning. It says, it's time to get back to winning championships. The Chiefs are tied 1-1 in the 2013 series with the Victoria Shamrocks, so they are three wins away from making it happen. Game 3 goes Monday night at 7pm PT/10pm ET and can be seen via live pay per webcast.
