Rider Fan is making his way to Vancouver this weekend. As we speak he is in the Rockies on his John Deere or, for the more affluent among them, flying in his 1915 Gypsy Moth crop duster. All for the sake of seeing his team lose yet again to our Lions.
Since we're going to be playing host here are a few helpful hints to make Rider Fan's stay a pleasant one:
Stock the rec room with plenty of Old Style Pil and rye and coke. Export A ( green of course )is a thoughtful touch.
Buy a spitoon for their Skoal habit.
Rider Fan loves music. Haul out a banjo, spoons, fiddles and an empty moonshine jug.
Go to a scrap yard and order a rusted out school bus. Install in your backyard. This will remind Rider Fan of his canola field.
On Sunday afternoon around 4 pm after yet another playoff loss, console Rider Fan with " You really should be used to this by now!"
Book flight to Winnipeg, offer to drop Rider Fan off on the way.
