OOOPS, thank you for the correction. I was surrounded by crazy Sask fans at the game. Sask used to have the dude that lit his head on fire after scores. Anyone remember that guy?? (Am I imagining this as I can't find it on the internet which means it is not true). HELP!!!
LOL !!! Relax , you are definitely not having an Mandela effect moment . There was indeed at one time a crazy Saskatchewan fan named Sandy Monteith known as "The Flame" who did shoot flames out of his head after a Rider TD .
I guess you didn't try hard enough to actually search for this guy because I found him with no problem by googling "The Flame" Saskatchewan RoughRider fan . Low and behold up he popped .
I remember this guy from the 70's and 80's and remember seeing him and his Flame on more than one occasion at Ivor Wynne when the Riders were in town as well as seeing him on TV as a staple at Rider home and even some away games . Sadly though at a game in the 1990 season there was an apparent incident involving a young boy getting injured when an explosion happened that resulted with the Flame being banned from Taylor Field aka Mosiac Stadium as part of a court settlement and the Flame was no more after that .
Here is a story I found about that unfortunate incident and also about the character known as "The Flame" and the life long Rider fan who created him..... 8)
Hey B&G... you're right. I'm not a betting man and have never been to the track. When I was a kid somebody told me that a Quinella was picking 5 races in a row.Made sense because 'quin' usually relates to a '5' of some type (see quintuplets). After your reaction to the term I checked it out. Ooops.... :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[
How embarrassing! And me a wordsmith and somebody who is a precisionist in language matters. I thought I was referring to the 5 sports I had made it to. I will now go stand int he corner with a dunce cap on.
