Many are not loving shorter days and cooler nights.
Saskatchewan football fans, myself included, are different than most.
I prefer the word unique. This is one of my favourite times of the calendar year. It’s not just because of the CFL, but the bigger picture.
The four-time national junior champion Hilltops try to stay undefeated, while the 1 and 1 Thunder fight to keep pace in the Prairie Football Conference.
The curtain goes up on the Canada West season this weekend.
The Rams hope to prove that they can run with the league’s elite, while Canadian Football Hall of Famer, Scott Flory, tries to put some long-term goals in place at the U of S where he played.
The fields will soon be busy on Thursdays and Fridays in Saskatoon and Regina, with 12-man high school games, while the six and nine-man seasons are about to start in smaller centres.
What’s not to love.
