One of the real experiences in life is to be married to a Saskatchewan Roughrider fan. SHE can call them assclowns and say things like “I know they’re up by 10 points but there’s 12 seconds left, they can still lose” but God forbid if I say a bloody word.
Saskatchewan will not sleep tonight. Hide your daughters, lock up the liquor cabinet and if you own a liquor store in small town Saskatchewan you might want to open up about now.
The last time they won I was in Regina. I remember the game, but not the week that followed. I do remember the Grey Cup going missing and that after the week was over I couldn’t stand the sight of beer, rum or rye for a month.
It was a wonderful time. I miss being in Regina tonight, but at least I’ve got this girl in green running around the house screaming “they did it, and where’s YOUR team!”
I can take it. It doesn’t happen often.
