A downtown subway delay lead to an unexpected after-work drinking excursion today, in which I ran into a pack of middle-aged Roughrider fans (they only travel in groups of 8, as far as I can tell), a stout and proud people. Amongst them however, were some Edmontonians, only one of which would admit to being an Esks fan although he had a green and gold fedora and jacket, so he was rather easy to spot. As for the rest of them: why kind of turncoat-ism is this anyhow? You jumped ship for one of the greatest historic loser teams in all pro sports just because your home team sucks for once in a gazillion years?
Anyway, I offered some firm handshakes and wished them luck on Sunday. The point of this story is simply that… well... I guess I didn’t have a point.
