I am hoping Saskatchewan sports fans turn away from Hockey Night in Canada long enough to see pro sports history, as Saskatoon’s newest franchise the Saskatchewan Rush open their National Lacrosse League season tonight in Calgary against the Roughnecks!
The game is on tonight at 8pm on TSN3, so this game ought to be great free advertising for the Rush in their marketing efforts leading up to their first home game at SaskTel Centre in two weeks. At least, I hope so. That is it for now.
Update: And HISTORY was made as the Rush came back from a 6-2 deficit to beat Calgary 10-8. All in all, I think Saskatchewan fans who tuned in were impressed not only with how well the team played but the whole entertainment value of the contest. Too bad these TSN announcers kept on messing up and referring to the team as “Edmonton”.
