CFL Flatlanders to the Playoffs

( 10 Part Epic Story )

In the 1997 season ... the Green Riders from Saskatchewan went on a Cinderella run through the playoffs and landed themselves in the Grey Cup.  On rsfc in the fall of 97 ... I wrote this little tale about the Flatlanders going to Montreal to play in an unexpected playoff game against the Als.

As I wrote this tale...which was supposed to last for three stories and a loss in Montreal ... good fortunes for the Rider team forced me to alter my intended story and it sent the Flatlanders on an extended trip across the country following their team on their miracle run for Lord Grey's Cup.

The journey begins just before the last regular season game of 1997 ... when it looks like the Riders will finish 4th place in the West Division for sure. This being the first year for cross-overs ... it means a trip to Montreal to play the 2nd Place Als. (Winnipeg was 3rd in the East but had a worse record than Regina)

This is their story ... and in some small way ... the story of the Saskatchewan Roughriders 1997 playoff run.
