Another Roughrider Goes Home DisappointedS

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are not sticking the Grey Cup anywhere after last night's last-second defeat in the CFL championship. It's going to be a long winter up there.

It was a heart-breaker for Saskatchewan, who blew at 16-point fourth quarter lead, then got called for a penalty when Montreal missed the game-winning field goal as time expired. Too many men on the field. GAhahhh! They moved the spot 10 yards closer—Canadian yards, even!—and the Alouettes won the Cup in the most dramatic fashion possible. That one will sting.

Of course, as you are well aware, Montreal is the Buffalo of Canadian football—having lost four of the last seven Grey Cup finals—so you have to feel good for them. If you're a fan of Regina, however, I suppose you're just going to have make do with booze and porn. Just like every other weekend.

Hope you enjoyed the long holiday weekend. Mine was ... what's the opposite of rejuvenating? I now need a vacation from my holidays.
