There were more than 7000 people at the Grey Cup in Toronto! It almost sold out 53,000 fans, The Blue Jays sell out the place on a home opener, 55,000 seats plus the hotel with windows to the field. I wasn’t there but it should have been any where else but Toronto, Montreal or BC, if you ask me. I saw quite a few Rider fans on TV, all wearing their green & white! Next year the Grey Cup is back where it should be, REGINA!
The half time show with Bieber, Carly Rae, Gordon Lightfoot and Mariana’s Trench, was not controlled at all! The fans booed Bieber. How many of those people get booed at their job? No right or need for that! I’m not a fan of Bieber, but I wouldn’t waste my energy on booing him, that’s his job! Should I boo the people at 7-11 because the nachos aren’t to my liking? NO!
This was the 100th Grey Cup, back where it all began. At least the Argonauts were in it and won! I assume not many people in Toronto knew they had a team until the week leading up to the game?! Kind of like the LA Kings winning the Stanley Cup for hockey last year! “OOOOOOOOOOOO WE HAVE A TEAM?……THEY WON?” Say it in a Scooby Doo voice, and let the hilarity consume you!
I don’t know what I’ll watch for sports on the weekends. No hockey (Thanks Bettman, do you want to mess up the league completely?), CFL or MLB. I can not stand basketball, NFL, golf, curling, etc. I watch the Blue Jays, CFL and some hockey. That’s all folks!
Cancer, it will probably affect me forever, I don’t think my eye will heal like the Doctors thought it might, oh well. I did my exercises at home again today after breakfast, 3 sets of 30 crunches and push-ups along with yoga and pilates. Then the same thing in the afternoon. I don’t know or care if I’ll be able to walk again. Maybe I’ll be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life? Then Kim & I will get the best parking spot where ever we go and make a reservation at any restaurant, just because I’m in a wheelchair.
As for the best guitar player in Canada and the USA? Ian Thornley, Tim Roth, Alex Lifeson and somebody else I can’t remember. USA, Matt Heafy from Trivium, he was inspired by James Hetfield of Metallica, but I don’t think Hetfield could keep up with Heafy. I played very simple rhythm guitar parts so I could sing. I have never been able to play a fast solo on guitar, I haven’t taken any lessons.
