Big football game today. I'll call it Canada's Superbowl. Mostly, it's an excuse to get together and eat appetizers and drink beer. Most years I don't really care for the teams that have made it. THIS YEAR the Saskatchewan Roughriders are in the big game. That's my home town team. Growing up - all I wanted to be was a Saskatchewan Roughriders cheerleader. My whole family cheers for them. We sing the song. The first time I ever heard my reserved softspoken dad yell- it was when the Roughriders won the Grey Cup the last time... in 1989. The time before that - 1976. They don't have a history of being great - but, the fans, the fun, the atmosphere... Rider Pride is pretty unbeatable.
So, this afternoon - my Saskatchewan Roughriders play the Winnipeg BlueBombers (my other team). We're off to spend some time with Tammy & Jared, watch football on the big screen and EAT OUR FACES OFF.
Go Riders GO.
