    Hey everybody

    Its Greycup day up here.  The Saskatchewan Roughriders are playing.  Now you gotta understand that all of us from Sask are considered the absolute hillbillies of Canada.  On occasion we've been referred to as one eyed banjo pickers  LOL  BUT.  It doesn't matter where you are in Canada, you'll always see a Sask Riders flag hanging off a car or a Sask Riders bumper sticker on a pick up.  We're fanatics.  Right now I'm glued to the tv watching the game (which by the way we're winning by a runaway).  The last time I watched a football game was about 15 years ago when Sask was in the finals.  We don't ususally do all that great LOL  Just me saying

    Hey Gary, I've been to a couple Sask games, a very long time ago. A close college friend of mine was a halfback with Sask back in the 60s, Ray "Dutch" Purdin. Damn, it was cold there.

    We won, We won We won.  Now in the real time scheme of things , not a big deal, I mean for God's sake its a football game.  BUT.. us stubble jumpers only win about once every 15 years or so. , So YES it is a big deal.  Happy, happy, happy.LOL It would be impossible to wipe the grin off my face right now.

    Hey Dsl

    Its always cold up here for Greycup.  What I couldn't believe was the total lack of snow in Regina.  I have 2 feet of the crap on the ground right now
