This team may be bound for glory, this team…

Yeah Riders! I must say that I was surprised to see the Riders leading by 2 touchdowns when I tuned into the game in the late 3rd quarter. I had just been wandering around Stanley Park – which has palm trees! – looking out across English Bay towards Vancouver Island and seeing the Rose Gardens in the beautiful fall Vancouver weather. It is gorgeous here when you juxtapose the blue ocean against the rich reds, oranges and yellows of the changing leaves. And the maple trees – their leaves are about twice the size of my hand. Unbelievable. I do wonder if it’s all fake though – if the mountains are just a painted backdrop like on “The Truman Show”. The beauty here just seems too good to be true.

Anyways, back to the game…

Matt Dominguez is my hero. He should be everyone’s hero. I know – we were playing Ottawa – but hey, they’ve won 5 games – as many as we had before we beat them. I really wish we weren’t playing Montreal next week, as we’re now tied with Winnipeg and 1 game behind Edmonton. The Riders will have to make a huge effort next week. Interestingly, in the pre-game notes on Riderville.com, they had this quote printed: “In life, you’ll have your back up against the wall many times. You might as well get used to it.” I’ve honestly never looked at the pre-game notes before, so I wonder if they have a new quote for each game. The quote suited the game, and the Riders responded. It’s about time. But I’m not on the Grey Cup “glory train” just yet. We’ll have to win the remaining 4 games for any chance of that happening. And for the record, I am surprised, but not completely shocked that the Bombers traded Khari Jones to the Stamps at this point in the year. Yes, the Bombers’ defence does need some shoring up, but is Kevin Glenn really ready to lead a team? Only time will tell…

Tonight we made our weekly trip to Safeway and stocked up on food for the week. Heather and I are getting along very well. At this point she says she’ll come with me to Saturday’s Lions vs. Bombers game at BC Place. I told her we could do it to “ring” in my birthday. I might have to cheer for the Lions though – I don’t want Winnipeg to get ahead of us if we lose Sunday. But on the other hand, I don’t really want to cheer for the Lions. Oh, the decisions we must make…

And on that note, I must go transcribe my voice lesson from last Thursday, and work on that Italian I’ve been putting off…
