Why I love the CFL
I love watching lots of sports. During the Olympics I get sucked in and watch hours a day. But in the last few years one sports league has risen above the rest.
The CFL (Canadian Football league) gives me joy! I never miss watching a game. I like that is a small league and I can follow all the teams. I like that the pay for the players is modest and they play for a love of the game not the million you get in other major leagues. But I think what really gives it the extra edge is that I like hearing about the Canadian and American players. The Canadian ones because I am proud of what they have achieved and the American ones because I like to think about these young men from Louisiana and Texas and all over coming to Regina, a place they would never have been to in their entire lives if they hadn't been in football, and experiencing how life is; in Canada and in Saskatchewan. I just like visitors. I think that is it. I like showing people my town. I loved taking Mark to the games. Imagine a British person at Taylor field. :) Soo cool!
