I want to make it clear that I am not forgetting anyone in this pictoral essay of the CFL. There is method to my madness, you see, and I am leaving the very best CFL coach-a-like until last, so you can enjoy it on Grey Cup Sunday.
Yesterday, we learned how to recognise the Head Coach of the Edmonton Eskimos (as well as the General Manager).
Today, class, the best team in the CFL, the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Now I should mention that I have been watching football most likely since before I could walk. My grandmother used to watch football every weekend in the summer. She didn’t care which teams were playing, although she did prefer Canadian football to the American game. My father played football and coached football and watched football…in high school, I attended several football games under super secret cover…which reminds me of the time the cheerleaders at our high school misspelled the seven-letter name of our school. Embarassing, that. When the ‘Riders won the Grey Cup in 1989, as I’ve mentioned here before, I was at the pub (underage) watching the game.
My team of choice has always been Saskatchewan. I don’t think I need to explain that. Even when they’re not the best team in the league, they’re the best team in the league.
Now. When I began this foray into a pictoral essay, I thought I might get submissions from you. And you have not disappointed me! So, I shall incorporate some of the suggestions as well.
Brielle made the following suggestion for The Saskatchewan Roughriders’ head coach, Ken Miller:
They are both very happy men; this much is clear. Look at those wide, chicklet smiles. They both wear glasses and headphones. This is a good comparison.
However, the best way to identify the head coach of the Saskatchewan Roughriders is to think back to some of the innocent days of your life. Weekday mornings, CBC television…
|This is Ken Miller.|
He is the head coach of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
|This is the Friendly Giant. He was a CBC icon.|
|Sometimes, Ken Miller holds things:||Sometimes, The Friendly Giant holds things:|
Coach Ken Miller has a Wide Receiver called Rob Bagg. The Friendly Giant has a Small Rooster *in* a bag!
They just…you know…they just make you so *happy*!
Thus endeth the lesson.
