Grey Cup 98

Sunday dawned grey and cool in Edmonton for the 98th Grey Cup at Commonwealth Stadium. Being the superstitious person that I am I took special care in my preparation for the game so that we could walk away with the big "W" at the end of the day. Sadly, all of my preparation still could not help my 'Riders beat the Montreal Alouettes in their second Grey Cup meeting in as many years.

I made the trip to the Grey Cup with some familiar faces (Mike and Brian from last year) and some new faces (Angie, Graham and Cody). Regardless of the final outcome, we had a lot of fun.

I can't help but feel a little bit of despair for the someone put it, "Last year we wanted them to win the cup for ourselves. This year we wanted them to win for the team". But at the same time I can't dwell on what didn't happen for us. The sun rose again today and life will go on for players and fans alike.

We'll get back to the Grey Cup again and true fans will be there to cheer them on every step along the way. Thank you for a great season Roughriders. See you in 2011!

  1. Sorry about your team. Looks like you had a blast there, though. I'm back in Canada at the University of Manitoba taking Education. I'm in my first (of two) years, and it's a blast. I had my fun in Korea, but now it's time to get a high-paying job.
