Brand New Stadium and the winner is Brandon Bridge! He will be the Saskatchewan Roughriders 1st QB on the field to start the 2017 Season – Well, it is a pre-season game after all .. does this count or will the Inaugural 1st go to Kevin Glenn on July 1?
Canada Day Game Day Experience will be full throttle with all activations under way, but this weekend, just get used to getting to the game on time, finding your seat, checking out the in stadium concessions and realizing this is a new age of football in Saskatchewan.
FISHIN’ IN THE DARK!
I am the owner, a proud one, at that of a FISHING ROD!
I can still see my friend, Lisa standing about mid calf in the lake and casting away. Relaxing! Then a couple years ago on my May trek to Alberta, fishing with my young friend Bryce and his buddy. It was a blast. Our promo guru, Tom and engineer, Bob are giving me some guidelines for the rod & reel!
I might even go out today! How exciting. Next I’ll be subscribed to Rod & Reel!
The Downtown Scene
The Royal Canadian Legion hosts a real BBQ Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11:30 to 1pm at 1820 Cornwall Street. Yesterday, the BBQ was busy, yet there was still an abundance of left overs. So, being a member of the Legion, I suggested packing up the left over beef and chicken burgers plus the smokies and giving them to some of the folks that might not get a meal.
Eight people and a dog were given a mid-day treat. The Royal Canadian Legion is open 6 days a week at 1820 Cornwall Street. While it is open to members, visitors are more than welcome in the café and the lounge. We also appreciate reaching out to help the community. Those that I visited were in need of some friendship and food. Some days its hard to know who needs assistance and what their struggles are. But to Roy, J & dog, Steve, the fella at Hill Street Mall and the young man in Victoria Park, people do care about your welfare.
This morning on my way to work, J and Steve were under the shelter of Harvard Broadcasting, sleeping on the sidewalk. The rain was pelting down nicely at 5:45. How can you sleep in that. So, I took out a hot coffee, oatmeal, cookies and pieces of chicken. It wasn’t much, but it was something to start the day. I had an extra t-shirt, a hand towel, cup a soup, a travel mug for J. He and his dog are off to Newfoundland. A little kindness goes along way when you’re crossing the country. This small hot breakfast and fresh water for man and dog were much appreciated. And J was in a much better space this morning than yesterday afternoon. He’s got a guitar, plays harmonica and walks with his dog – seems like a guy that just needs a friend.
While it may not be much, kind words, a moment of conversation or lending a helping hand can be a big boost. Maybe during our summer you’ll help someone.
Have a great weekend!
