Bleeding Green FOR WINNERS
EDITED: Final Score:
The Great Saskatchewan Roughriders :23 (Rider Pride Coast to Coast!)
The sad Winnipeg Blue Bombers: 19 (I do feel bad for Milt, though)
Today is the day that the Great Saskatchewan Roughriders take to the field against the lowly Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the 95th Grey Cup.
Technically Winnipeg is in the West but due to crazy Easterners they put Winnipeg in the East Conference for purposes of the CFL (Canadian Football League). Ha ha ha. Don't they know that there is no greater rivalry than Winnipeg and Saskatchewan?? Not just for football but for anything. Have you been to either province? (Well, Winnipeg is a city in the province of Manitoba but we won't hold that against them). Both provinces are flat expanses of dust peppered with very kind, generous, fantastic people who love their own province and despise the prairie land next to them. I speak with some experience having been born and raised in Saskatchewan but spending 2 precious years of my life in my late 20's in Winnipeg. [Besides nice people who cheer for a bad football team - Winnipeg also has the very best restaurants I have been to anywhere in the world... Rae & Jerry's anyone?]
Winnipeg vs. Saskatchewan. This is going to be the best damn Grey Cup game ever.
AND as if having 2 teams from the 'west' playing each other wasn't weird enough. Saskatchewan is actually the FAVOURED TEAM TO WIN. This is clearly a sign of global warming and the world going crazy.
And to Sunny Side Up who is cheering for Winnipeg (boo). I'll leave you and all those Rider fans with this thought:
P.S. Yes, the Rider mascot is a Gopher. But not just any gopher. He is Gainer the Gopher. So there.
