So today is Grey Cup 2009, Saskatoon Roughriders vs Montreal Alouettes - this town hasn't hosted the Grey Cup for several years. This is a football town and believe me, they are going a little crazy.
They had a parade yesterday and all the kooks were out:
There were parties in all the hotels and clubs and bars - I met Lui Passaglia, Wally Buono, and the owner of the BC Lions, Dave Braley. We had a great time - I know because I was feeling it this morning.
and me and Wally Buono, the coach:
This afternoon, a bunch of us are meeting at a local pub to watch the game - I'm rooting for the Roughriders - they've got THE best fans in the whole CFL. They are so fun, enthusiastic, and just plain kooky.
Anybody else have Grey Cup plans?
