Hi everybody! Warm greetings from our house to yours!!
I am happy to report that even though I was still in pain and feeling lousy this morning I did eventually get better to the point where I managed to make the trip to the Hammer--just in time to see Santa! (I didn't know he was coming to town--if I had had a chance to chat with him I would have told him that the Tiger- Cats don't need a gift from him--they are going to win this thing on their own, thank you very much!)
Anyway, I walked up Main and headed to the radio station--900 AM. I had planned on giving my ticket to them with the request that they give it away to someone who would like a single ticket. However, on the way there I stopped into the Canadian Bible Society store and got to talking to one of the staffers. I assume he was a student at the university. He told me that his housemate, probably another student there-- was a HUGE football fan, did not have a ticket and would definitely go to the game--he loves the Tiger-Cats. I knew right then that I had the right person for my ticket. I gave it to the young man who was going to give it to his friend. I was so happy and relieved to know that a real Tiger-Cat fan would be sitting there cheering on the team to victory.
Although I am disappointed to miss the game in person it gives me a real lift to know that someone else is going to have a great afternoon at the stadium. I realize that you really do not know me from a hole in the ground but if you did you would know why I am excited to send someone else to the game for free. I am a giver in the sense that if I had the choice between giving a gift and receiving one I will give every time--I just love it! So despite the disappointment of missing the game at Ivor Wynne I am still a happy camper--that is just me.
The fellow going to the game--his name is David. So if you are sitting anywhere near David say hi to him for me, okay? We are total strangers yet there is a kinship here--we are in this together! I have no idea who he is but one thing I do know--we have one thing in common--we want the Tiger-Cats to continue on their quest for the Grey Cup.
Oskee wee wee!
Oskie waa waa!
Tiger-Cats, eat 'em raw!
AND THEY WILL!!!
Have fun everyone! Cheer your hearts out for our boys!
With fondness from the Lake Simcoe area,
P.S.: Thank you for the wonderful suggestions--they were all good. Also thanks for the wishes concerning my health--much appreciated!
