I don't think you guys played your best game, nor do I feel the Riders their's, but you kept playing until the final whistle and pulled the victory out. There's very few teams that I feel have the classy players that the Al's have, and it helps make the loss a tiny bit more easy to accept being that there's so many guys on that team that deserve the Cup.
It's a heartbreaking way to lose the game on a very preventable penalty, but credit where it's due, the Al's were behind the entire game, didn't lead the game for more than a second, and pulled it out.
Hopefully it's one of many trips back to the big show for the Riders.
If you told me the season would end with a 1 point loss in the Grey Cup back in preseason when many picked a last placed finish, I'd take it in a second.
Here's to next season!
