When Brad Wall became Saskatchewan’s premier in November 2007, the Roughriders had won only two Grey Cups.
Their third came three days later; since then they have appeared in three others, and won a fourth.
Wall’s Oakland Raiders haven’t won a Super Bowl since, but it’s still been an eventful decade.
Getting personally retrospective, since 2007 I’ve helped write five sports books, retired from the Leader-Post, joined the Green Zone and chided Wall when he flubbed his Premier’s Picks.
I’ve become an orphan and a widower. My kids were teenagers when Wall became premier; like this province they have grown to the point where I’m sure they’re going to be OK.
Think back to what’s happened in the past decade.
Sometimes we’ve chuckled at Wall’s statements or laughed at his jokes. Sometimes we’ve shaken our heads and groaned.
Some of Wall’s government policies were great, others were awful.
Kind of like football seasons.
