Rider Nation TRIUMPHS!


What a great Grey Cup win for the Saskatchewan Roughriders! They dominated throughout the entire game -- final score: 45-23!

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats used up all of their nine lives during the game but never had the lead or were even close. Even Rider fans were showing them who was boss --


And for those of you doubting whether Regina grocery stores could indeed find watermelons out of season, oh yes they could and did!

I don't know half of the words you just said, but yes, tiger is adorable, and congratulations to your sports team!

Ken said...

Well, they were certainly the better team in the final. The Riders were not my choice, but they deserve congratulations.

The only small consolation I can take out of this season, is that our lowly Edmonton Eskimo's did indeed beet them in their final regular season game. :)

Leeanna said...

Vanessa Morgan said...

Oh Saskatchewan. My birthright. It's like Saskatchewan is the drunk uncle of all the provinces. And sometimes I really like that.

I don't follow football. No kind of football, soccer even less. And I kind of stopped following hockey when the Habs fans started rioting every time the team win a game. Maybe I should start following football, come to think of it.

CraveCute said...

Congrats.. I'm very happy for you, but I'm clueless!

I was able to watch a little bit of the game on a channel called "NBCSports" here where I live.

Never seen a game before so it was very interesting to watch.

Lisa said...

That is one hell of a big cup Deb.
Watermelons are well and truly in season here. So are mangos.

Riot Kitty said...

So I don't follow sports, but congrats!

Rue said...

If BC couldn't have the cup, I'm glad it was Sask!

klahanie said...

Yay to the Riders, eh.
The Grey Cup, a Canadian tradition that the rest of the world needs to know about.

CFL, all the way.
