Saskatchewan Roughriders are having an awesome year....new GM, new Head Coach, some new players and the best fans in the country. The Saskatchewan Roughriders played their first season in 1910 and they are on top of their game and currently in 1st place in the West. In the 97 years that the Roughriders have been around they won the Grey Cup 2 times first in 1966 and the last time in 1989 and were the Western Division Champions in 1951, 1966, 1967, 1969, 1972, 1976, 1989 & 1997.
Many say that the Labor Day Classic game between Saskatchewan Roughriders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers was preview of what we will see at this years Grey Cup. The game was awesome, wish we could have been there to watch it. Winnipeg 1st in the East was a good match for Saskatchewan, our guys had to work for the win and they did. The Roughriders were sold out for the 4th time this year and their game against the BC Lions on September 22 is also sold out. Former Rider George Reed was in attendance for the Labor Day Game.
Looks like we may even have a home play off game......Tickets to a Roughrider game are a hot commodity. Games are being sold out. The heart of Saskatchewan Fans is huge. Nice thing when the games are sold out, those of us that can't be there to watch the game in person can watch it from the comfort of their living room where the beer is cold, the excitement is building and the food always on.
On game days my husband and I are glued to the tv set. I am sure they can here us cheering all the way down in Regina on Taylor Field at Mosaic Stadium. Our son is also watching the game from his home in Lampman and cheering just as loud. Even our two daughters get into the football game.....they would have liked to be in Regina for the Labor Day Classic as well.....maybe next year....we'll have to buy our tickets earlier this year so we don't miss out like we did this year.
The Banjo Bowl to be played in Winnipeg on September 9th should prove to be a good game. The Blue Bombers will be looking for revenge after being so close to a win last Sunday. My husband and I will be watching and cheering for the Riders on the 9th. The beer will be cold, the wings will be hot and the excitement will be high. Go Riders Go....Go Riders Go
The Saskatchewan Roughriders keep racking up victories and each week the wins continue to get more miraculous.
GO RIDERS GO.
