The Sask Riders Kick Ass! They so beat the snot out of Edmonton Eskimos......What a game! I don't normally get too excited about the games, but even I got excited this time! It was such a close game! Here are some brief game notes. The Riders opened by scoring almost immediately...the Eskimos responded by scoring another touchdown almost right away, and then taking the lead. Over the course of the game there was seven lead changes....which made it really exciting...then with 13 minutes left in the game, they were hit with a massive thunder storm, and because of the rain and lightning, they had to clear the field and shut down the game for 55 minutes! As a testament of Saskatchewan fans toughness over half of the fans never left the stands despite the massive downpour!! ( and when I say massive...I mean massive...) We were over at our friend Scott and Cori's house watching the game, and laughing at our friends Tim and Rod who were actually at the game....(suckers...) I should mention that at this point, the Riders were actually losing....but after the game started again, the Riders came back and kicked butt!! The Eskimos kept fumbling the ball because of the rain and never scored again! (It didn't help that they were being lazy and laying around on the field every five minutes pretending to be injured...) So sweet! Final score was 39-32 in favor of the Riders....This puts the Riders in the top spot in the Western Division! (GO RIDERS!)
The other funny thing about the game actually had nothing to do with the game, but with my son's reaction....He was sitting downstairs with us watching the game...and he was absolutely fascinated with our responses! It was really funny...He would watch the game, and then when they scored and we all shouted, he would stare intently at Cori and the guys....probably trying to figure out what was so exciting....You had to be there....
Cori is determined to make a little Riders fan out of him yet..... http://www.saskriders.com/
