What a horrible way to end a season.

Monday, November 30, 2009
So the party was a success. There were fewer people than I expected but they more than made up for it when it came to the volume of their cheering. I was surprised and shocked by how many of them were cheering for Montreal. I felt fastly outnumbered.

The game? Was awesome up until the final 5 seconds. It was a nailbiter right until the end. Montreal attempted a field goal which they needed to win and they sent in their kicker who hadn't been able to kick the ball straight all night long. True to form, the kick went wide and Saskatchewan fans across the country went ape shit. Unfortunately, there was a flag on the play - too many men on the field. Montreal moved the ball forward and had a better position from which to try the field goal again. Sadly for Riders fans, Montreal chose this final chance to kick the ball straight through the uprights.

I cannot believe that this is how the game ended. I'm happy for Montreal, they're a great team and definately deserve to win given their performance all season. However, you can be guaranteed someone on the Saskatchewan team is NOT going to be returning next year.

not until they learn how to count, anyway.

Gives a whole new meaning to the term "the thirteenth man", doesn't it?
