Our Sport-Watching Bloggers Have Nothing To Say?

The Roughriders beat Calgary and they’re going on to the Grey Cup to kill Montreal. I saw the last half of the game at the gym, on an elliptical machine’s TV screen while burning 361 calories of hard-earned fatness. Good finish, too close for comfort at times (the game, not my workout). But what’s my opinion? Useless, that’s what. Where’s Rosie? What does Greg think? Is Carle excited? Is Dechene pro-stadium now? Dog Blog readers want to know! No one wants to read a post on the Roughriders by me. No one! Come on other-bloggers, help a guy out here!

As for the Grey Cup: The Riders didn’t need to beat Edmonton or Calgary in the playoffs but they did. This next game, ooooh. Now they have to win. Montreal must not repeat. The sinister and smelly Alouettes must be slain. Quebec football fans must be humbled and saddened.

And so must it be. I, a silly person, have spoken.

  1. I didn’t watch the game, and have yet to see any highlights, but do know from reading a couple of skimpy early news reports that Calgary hurt themselves pretty badly with penalities — 13 for 92 yards compared to 5 for 15 yards for the Riders. Cocky and undisciplined is how the Stamps are generally perceived among the Rider faithful, and both those qualities were on display today.

  2. Lifted this quote from Stampeder defensive back Dwight Anderson from the Calgary Herald website today:

    “At the end of the day, we came in, knowing we were the better team. (The officials) took that out of our hands. Straight up. You line up any one of (Saskatchewan’s) receivers, one-on-one, and I’ll shut ’em down, you feel me? Ain’t one of them better than me or BB (Stampeders DB Brandon Browner). We’re better than half of those dudes over there. And at the end of the day, Tom Higgins (the CFL’s Director of Officiating) got what he wanted.”

  3. Greg: Re post number 2 — in other news, the CFL home office has moved the location of its Christmas staff party from the Olive Garden in a Scarborough shopping mall to the main ballroom of the Royal York Hotel.

  4. Say what we will, Rider Nation doesn’t seem as rabid as it did last year. I’m thinking peoples’ old age, etc. has something to do with it.
