There was a regular caller to our sports show: Brad from Swift Current.
Brad is a football fan. He loves the Riders, adores the Oakland Raiders and don’t say anything negative about his University of Saskatchewan Huskies.
He can go on about Jim Plunkett, Marcus Allen and Todd Christensen. He wore his Dressler jersey proudly and attends as many Dog’s breakfasts as he can.
Brad would make his weekly picks and take his harassment in stride for constantly taking the Riders in that dreadful 2011 season – and again at the end of 2014.
He called our post-game show after the Grey Cup in 2013, stating “Hi, it’s Brad from Swift Current.”
He’s also a music fan. Johnny Cash and his favourite Waylon Jennings. He’s also big on this new kid from Saskatchewan: Colter Wall.
All these things make Brad from Swift Current a pretty relatable guy. He isn’t a stuffy suit politician who could only talk about debt to GDP ratio, equalization and carbon taxes.
It was all those things that made him the most popular premier in Canada, as well as a great caller to the Green Zone.
We hope to hear from ya soon, Brad.
