as everyone who watched live, like me ; ) (free ticket from work), or on tv knows, this was a tough loss for rider fans to take. montreal alouettes beat the saskatchewan roughriders 28-27 in 97th grey cup. up by two touchdowns and two-two point converts with less than a quarter to play, the roughriders let victory slip away. lack of first downs when it mattered and a very costly last play flag. as rider fans we are not used to being ahead...comebacks are easier to take from the other perspective
and then the alouette fans came out of the woodworks! was a sombre scene in downtown calgary after the game - nothing like the explosive party it might have been...
tressa and i lucked out on our hotel - a fairly independent, brand new one - acclaim hotel - by the airport with rooftop hot tubs for only $130 night. i recommend it
we were very tired from driving, but managed to miss most of the blizzard that apparently took place (but not the overly cautious drivers who were causing some problems). and we saw a bad crash aftermath in a really foggy stretch.
