Riders, Beloved Riders

My Riders were defeated. Thoroughly. By Calgary {spit}!

It was not a banner day for football in Chez Wilma as all our hopes of remaining in 1st place were dashed. All the wrong teams won & now we're sitting in third place in the league. Drat & dagnabbit!

Although, it pains me to admit this, but we beat ourselves. The defence seemed incapable of sticking a tackle, the offence was lacklustre, & they just didn't seem to want to win. Put that in a pot with refs who made some questionable calls {de rigueur in the CFL no matter who is playing} & the fact that they no longer have their black pants & you've got a loser stew. That's right. You heard me. I referenced football & cooking in the same sentence.

Puffy told me he heard/read somewhere that Kent Austin is doing a full review of all positions. ALL. Including the coaches. Sounds to me like there may be shakeup in Riderville. Go to the celler, Ma! There's a storm a-brewin'!

where did their black pants go? Is there a CFL Value Village somewhere? or better yet a CFL outlet store?

Inquiring minds want to know.

So the CFL has some stupid rule that each club can only have 32 official colours for all their uniforms. We have green, white & silver (cuz of the new "retro" uniforms that are all green) & the black had to go.

Can you believe it? Don't they read my blog? Don't they do stats on which uniforms win the most games? They do stats on everything else.
