The B.C. Lions' Wednesday night 37-30 exhibition loss was just like old times at McMahon Stadium, where the black and orange lost all three visits with the Calgary Stampeders in 2008.

On Friday, the Leos are really going retro when they unveil a Reebok-made 1960s-era uniform they'll wear July 16 at Edmonton and Aug. 7 when they host Saskatchewan. Confirmed models include Lions' legend Norm Fieldgate and contemporary greats Geroy Simon and Barron Miles.

The old/new jersey will go on sale Tuesday when B.C. hosts the Eskimos at B.C. Place Stadium in their second pre-season game. Lions' head coach and general manager Wally Buono is expected to make cuts Friday.
