Friday Night Football

So, we made the trek 200 or so kms to watch the Saskatchewan Roughriders take on the Montreal Alouettes. It was a wonderful game, and our team won.

However the quarterback for the Montreal team was at one point a Roughrider and well loved by all in this province. While the fans booed the Montreal team, when Darian Durant came on the field he was given a standing ovation. He led us to the Grey Cup a few years back, and this was the first time returning to Saskatchewan. Our Fan Club (which is pretty much the whole province) had a slide show before the game showing highlights of his career with us. It was a wonderful tribute to a very good player and wonderful person.

So now I will share some pictures of the game copied from various news sources.

We won and that made it much easier to stand the chilliness of the night.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.
