Well this is it. Today is the last day that the Riders get to have the Grey Cup before it has to be returned to the Hall of Fame in Hamilton. For the last couple months, the Cup has been making appearances across the province. From Lloydminster to LaRonge. From hockey rinks to hardware stores. The cup has been to pretty much every corner of Saskatchewan and it has had some interesting experiences. Like the time that the Cup and a bunch of players were left behind at the Grey Cup parade and had to hitchhike back to Mosaic or the time Neal Hughes took the cup on Christmas Eve so he could wake beside it on Christmas morning.
In honour of the Cup's adventures in our province I have developed this top ten list...
Top 10 Saskatchewan uses for the Grey Cup you never would have thought of:
10 - Gravy Boat
9 - Temporary solution to a leaky roof
8 - Snow scoop to dig your car out in the morning
7 - Battering Ram if you're locked out
6 - Jousting Baton for impromptu round of American Gladiators
5 - Antenna for old TVs
4 - Prairie-sized shot glass
3 - Mug for your morning coffee at the office
2 - All in one cereal bowl and TV tray
1 - Quarter bounce National Championship
I would have said club for seal hunting but there's only one person who would actually do that and lord knows he won't be getting his hands on a Grey Cup anytime soon.
