Scruffy's Christmas Letter
What's goin on? Are you ready to get off the couch and do your thing again? I know this letter is a little late, but better late than never and I know you can't make some things happen, but you can come through in other ways so here goes
To outgoing Riders president and CEO Jim Hopson. May retired life treat you well. Excellence starts at the top and Jim, you made the beloved /=S=/ what you wanted it to and that is the franchise that is envied by all in the CFL. You only have two Grey Cups to show for your time, but we all know there should be more. May that rocking chair be comfy, may those Coronas be cold and may you enjoy whatever warm weather locale you will call home in the winter, Don't be a stranger. It won't be the same walking onto the field and not seeing you there.
To outgoing U of R Director of Athletics Dick White. May you also enjoy retired life and may you sit back and know that you helped turn the Cougars from just a small little school on the prairies that not many paid attention to one of the best overall programs in Canada. It would seem as if the CKHS is not going to get a corporate name attached to it anytime soon so can I suggest to those at the University that the building be known as the Dick White center. I think that would be appropriate. I will also miss chatting with you at basketball games.
To U of R womens basketball coach Dave Taylor. A national championship. If anyone deserves to have one after all the chances they've had its Dave and his squad that is the marquee group in Cougarland with all apologies to Leo McGee.
To the Edmonton Oilers-----never mind. Nothing can help them....unless you can get Kevin Lowe a new job and if that new job is with the Leafs that would be great.
To Seahawks punter Jon Ryan --- another Super Bowl ring. Why not! PS: I like the chances
To Regina hockey fans ---that you find your way to the Brandt Centre for the 2nd half of the WHL season, You just might like what you see
To Rams receiver Addison Richards---that the helmet with horns you wear now is replaced by a helmet with an “S” on the side at the CFL draft.
To the citizens of Gronkville that makes High Impact Wrestling a great way to spend a Friday night---that you keep coming out and do what you do. The action in the ring is tremendous, but what you do outside the ring is even better.
To the Chicago Cubs --- a winning season. It doesn't have to be a division winning season, but just one that shows some promise with the young stars they have.
To my locker talk co-host Pete Paczko and to my good friend Rod Pedersen----well, lets just say I don;t think I can put some of those things down so I hope you got the text message I sent on those two, In fact, add that degenerate Josh Shaw to the list too.
Santa, I could keep going, but some of the things I want could get me in trouble so I think I had better stop. Safe travels tonight. To you and everyone else who reads this blog on a daily basis, I say Merry Christmas and a Happy 2015 to all.
PS: When you stop by, the rye is in its usual spot. Help yourself!
