I had high hopes prior to last week that I would get some spectacular photos during Grey Cup Festival events and at the game itself. Alas, I have excuses why I didn’t accomplish that goal!
- It was cold outside. Really cold. (Although, perhaps that’s not really a good excuse because I did take pictures at the Grey Cup Parade on Saturday morning when it was -22 out!)
- I was busy enjoying all the Grey Cup festival events. I was out four nights in a row (can’t remember the last time I did that!) and I just wanted to enjoy the events.
- My camera stopped working at halftime at the game so I was unable to capture the end of the game and the Grey Cup presentation. 😦
Anyway, these are not some of the best pictures I’ve ever taken, but they capture some of the events during Grey Cup week. (And since I know there are some people who check out my blog who may not know what the Grey Cup is, I suppose you could call it Canada’s Superbowl, although that may not be quite accurate. It’s the championship game for the Canadian Football League and the Grey Cup Festival is a celebration for the fans. This year, the 101st Grey Cup game was in Regina, and the hometown team, the Saskatchewan Roughriders were in it against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. And we won! And it was amazing!
And, since my camera stopped working, I’ll skip right to a bad iPhone pic walking home down the Green Mile while fireworks were shot off the top of City Hall!
And now, after a fabulous Grey Cup Week, life is starting to get back to normal!
