    The Roughriders is Saskatchewan's CFL team. The team has an amazing following of true fans. Fans the put the fanatical back in the definition.

    While there are only 8 teams in the CFL, Saskatchewan has the most loyal following. The fans make road trips over thousands of miles to watch away games. The stadium sells out frequently for home games.

    I've also been told that even though the team represents 1/8 of the league, the merchandise sales for Roughriders gear accounts for nearly 50% of all CFL related products.

    I did not have an opportunity to see the Roughriders play at home, but I did see two of their games while in Alberta.

    We were lucky and could visit the Powwow on the occasion of the opening of the Campus of First Nations University in Regina.

    Great cab drivers!

    Cab drivers in Regina are amazingly nice - never once did I have to open my door, they would always stop the meter ahead of time, one even offered to drop me off at the bookstore for free since it was on his way home! They were all chatty and friendly and very helpful - what a shock for someone coming from Montreal!
