The reason (do you even have to ask)??
The RIDER game, silly!
The game was very intense, my yelling even more intense (my throat was pretty sore the next day), and the result: the Riders beat those damn Stampeders!!
I as a FANTASTIC game, with a FANTASTIC result.
I then stayed in Regina overnight with Jess and Jeff. My brother and I hung out the next day. We had brunch and then headed to the U of R. We walked around the entire campus, just looking around. Jeff was very interested in seeing the new kinesiology centre. Following that stroll, we headed to the Legislature. We went in and tried to go up the stairs that lead to the rotunda and we were stopped.
I wanted to yell, “But this is MY democracy, damnit! This is MY house!! LET ME IN!!!!”
But I didn’t.
We walked the gardens in front of the Legislature and a little bit around Wascana Lake. After that we headed to the Imax and watched a dinosaur movie. It wasn’t very good. I learned a little bit, but not a lot. The popcorn, though, was first rate. And cheap. Then it was off to Chapters for a little book browsing before heading home.
I started watching Friday’s game last night before I went to bed. What a lovely way to recap that wonderful evening!
The only thing I didn’t get was an actual piece of cake (I did have some ice cream). But I think I can easily fix that…
