1 Year Anniversary

Ladies and Gentlemen, today marks the 1 Year Anniversary of The Rider Prophet’s blog. It was on this day in 2007 when the Rider Prophet burst onto the scene with a refreshing alternative to the boring, uninspired, mindless drivel that pollutes the information super highway.

In just 12 short months I’ve managed to amass an impressive array of accolades:
  • Runner up in the Mysask Rider Blog contest
  • Tim Switzer’s favourite Rider Blog
  • CBC Morning Edition’s Ultimate Rider Fan
  • Nominee for 4 Canadian Blog Awards
  • Rider Prophet Award winner for Best Rider Blog
And I’ve also faced zero legal action, which in and of itself is a miracle.

In honour of my amazing accomplishments, the Bank of Canada has decided to release a special edition $23 bill to commemorate the Prophet. Here’s a sneak peek.




There’s been so many great memories over the past. For Man in the Bush, Media Consultant and myself the highlight of the past year was our Thanksgiving road trip to Calgary: met some great people, shot some awesome interviews and got to celebrate a Rider win. All in all a great weekend.

What was your favourite Rider Prophet moment over the past year?


What does the future hold for me? Well it would take some sort of prophet to know the answer to that question.

Congrats on your first anniversary. Enjoy the blog very much and enjoy the entertainment factor PLUS you actually seem to know what you're talking about when it comes to football. Isn't the first anniversary "grey"? As in Grey Cup?

Congrats Prophet.

I have two favorite moments.

1. Meeting the Prophet in person in Calgary
2. Watching the video of the Prophet's Grey Cup jig. I still think a dance off is a possibility this year.

If it's a dance off you want, then a dance off you shall have. We should include Man in the Bush too, his Playoff Dance was pretty impressive.
