:cowboy: If there were three stars in Football I would give these out for the Grey Cup:
- The Saskatchewan offensive line = simply awesome performance
- Mr. Sheets of course
- D. D.

I would also like to give big congrats to Geroy Simon - so happy to see him get those 2 TDs. He came to our team to provide a vets perspective and help out with the odd catch LOL - thanks Geroy for all you did to help us with this win!
I wonder if Wally Buono knew that trading Geroy to the Roughriders meant a $16000 bonus at the end of the season for Geroy, another Grey Cup ring [2nd in 3 seasons] and all the seedless watermelon he can eat until he finally retires. Life is good in Sasquatch land. :rockin:
CONGRATS to you Turkey and the rest of RIDER NATION!!!!! You and your team were full marks in winning the Grey Cup.
No complaints or crying here,your team 100% deserved the victory,your 2nd(should be 3rd)Grey Cup in 7 years,and 3rd trip to the final in 5 years.So a big shout-out to all in Saskatchewan,to a job well done....and I quote.....Rider Pride!!!
Nation Wide!!!! :rockin: :rockin: :rockin: :rockin: 4 rockin' your 4th Grey Cup :thup: :thup: :thup: :thup:
Thanks Bobo. appreciate your comments. The Cats are going to be making a lot of noise in the next few years, so hang in there, your day will come soon.
The only question I really have about the game is although Sheets had one heck of a game,how can they say he set a new rushing record??? The play when Lawrence rocked Durant and the ball was knocked out,right into Sheets hands where he ran for a 39 yd gain......would that not be classified as a fumble return and not a rush from scrimmage???? That play IMO really set the tone for how the game was going to go for the Cats,not only were they up against a sea of green in the stands(visually,very impressive on T.V.)put it looked like the football Gods were also against us,with the Riders going to get all the breaks in the game.I really feel that,that play as well as the 2nd and 19 scamper by Sheets were the two major plays that sealed the game for the Riders.The Cats are a young team,inexperienced in playing in this type of game.The Riders,a veteran laden squad,took them to school and showed them what needs to be done to win a championship.Over-all though,let me just say that I am extremly proud of how this season turned out for the Cats,no one at the start of the year would have gave us a snow balls chance in hell to make the play-offs,let alone the Grey Cup.Even though they didn't win the Cup this year,the future looks way more brighter here than it did a year ago....and light years ahead of where this team once was back in the dark years of "03" to "08".In closing this CFL season has been a blast!!!! Can't wait for 2014 to get under way!!!!! RIDERS 2013 GREY CUP CHAMPIONS!!!! Ti-CATS 2014 GREY CUP CHAMPIONS!!!!
