This is coming from a former Saskatchewn resident...There is NOTHING to do but get drunk & watch football in the city of Regina. Hence the Saskatchewan Roughriders rowdy crowd. I've seen 45+ year old men almost passing out during the 3rd quarter because they are so intoxicated.
If you ever get the chance to go to a game, sit in the student section....
