No gloating from Turkeybend today - just a humility about being Canadian and witnessing such a great game.
Canada Day- I went in the a.m. to community Canada Day stuff - pancake breakfast, parade, free concerts - beer gardens seeing neighbours , friends and feeling pretty good and lucky that I live in Canada. By late afternoon pumped about BEING CANADIAN AND the re-Match. It was surreal. By the end I just had this great feeling of pride of being Canadian, having an atmosphere like there was at Mosiac, and seeing enough highlights for a season wrapped up in one game. Two tremedous teams , one never giving up and showing great resilience and heart (even if we do not know how to count yet!!!) Montreal, led by you have to say one of the greatest qb’s ever, on the road, and taking advantage of every Rider miscue- (the sign of a great qb.) Then there was the catches by both teams- a highlight reel of impossible catches- Montreal’s on the two point conversation, Getlaff’s , Dressler’s, Cahoon’s , Fantuz, Bagg’s - I could go on and on. Then there was the atmosphere- seemingly every fan dressed in green and with some costume attire added- great spirit and pride.
Back to living in Canada. Here we are - privileged to be able to be more concerned about whether our football team does well not worrying about war around us, starvation and unequal distribution of wealth. Sure it is not perfect here but what we have is the envy of the world. So instead of gloating and extolling the virtues of my Riders - HAPPY CANADA DAY FOLKS- WE ARE INDEED A PRIVILEGED LOT!!! :cowboy: :thup: :rockin:
