"Beauty of Uncertainty"

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

After what has felt like EONS, it’s time for Saskatchewan’s favourite (and only) team to take the field and defend their 2007 Grey Cup Championship title!

And I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!

Oh my gosh, I cannot tell you how long I have waited for Rider football! The anticipation for this year has been at fever pitch for me for a couple of reasons. The first is the fact that we’re the DEFENDING GREY CUP CHAMPIONS!! When’s the last time we could say that (1990, in case you didn’t know)? The second is because of all the changes the organizations has gone through in the past number of months. The Riders of 2008 will be/are COMPLETELY different than those that hoisted the Grey Cup in November.

I picked the title of this post from a song by KT Tunstall. The Riders’ fortunes this year are possibly more uncertain than they have been in awhile. But, I have faith in GM Eric Tillman and trust his football judgment. We also have a good nucleus of players and solid leadership. Yet, many question marks remain. How will the Riders respond to the pressure of being Grey Cup champs? Is Ken Miller able to come out from Kent Austin’s shadow and put his own stamp on the team? Is he capable of leading the Riders to another Grey Cup? Will Marcus Crandell be able to regain the form that made him the 2001 Grey Cup MVP? Will Matt Dominguez’s knee hold up? How will the defence manage without Reggie Hunt in the backfield? Who will fill the hole left by Fred Perry on the defensive line?

And those are only a few questions. Trust me – there are a whole lot more.

But there’s a beauty in all of this uncertainty: it’ll be one HELL of a ride this season!!

Buckle your seatbelts, folks, and get our your RIDER PRIDE! Football season is finally here!!
