Relaxing with a Rider win

I relaxed after work last night by listening to the 101st GREY CUP FINAL on the radio.
Kory Sheets rushed for a final-record 197 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the host SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS beat the HAMILTON TIGER-CATS, 45-23, to win their fourth title.
I cheered for the Riders, and caught myself surprised at the differences between the games on either side of the border.
Last night's game included "two-and-outs" and "kill shots" to the end zone, as well as teams beginning drives on their own 50 yard lines.
The weather was conducive to listening to Canadian football, too. Dubuque has been chilled by temperatures 20-degrees below normal recently.
