Saskatchewan moves on officially to hockey season now as this patchwork Roughriders offence, with all their backup QB woes, failed to get the job done in Edmonton. Our QB Kerry Joseph threw one pick after another into the outstretched hands of waiting Eskimos players. And they lost.
Mentally, I had sort of readied myself for this eventuality long ago and had more or less resigned myself to following SJHL hockey full-time. But unfortunately, too many Roughriders fans and broadcasters weren’t prepared for this outcome, which is why a lot of people are walking around Saskatchewan stupefied today.
Welcome to winter, Saskatchewan — it’s going to be a miserable offseason. Life here has just gotten boring in a big way.
