No football this weekend?

For me, there was plenty of it, and it just happened to be combined with a couple of good hockey games.

Three Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Grey Cup trophy were at the Broncos vs. Kelowna game at the Credit Union iplex Friday night.

L-R: Nathan Hoffart, Marcus Crandell and Anton McKenzie.

The Grey Cup trophy.

The ceremonial face-off. Upon the players' arrival, there was a long, loud standing ovation by the close to 2500 fans. No one sat until the anthem was finished.

The players checking out one of the new luxury suites at the iplex.
On a slightly related note, the NHL All-Star Game was earlier tonight. Team East beat Team West 8-7. Kathleen Edwards, a native of Ottawa, Ontario, sung the Canadian National Anthem while wearing a Riders 2007 Grey Cup Champions t-shirt. Figure I might add that.
