The Saskatchewan Roughriders have thousands of fiercely dedicated fans. Among these is the McEvoy family, who live in Roseville, Minnesota. This American family happened upon Regina, Saskatchewan almost accidentally in 1994 and have made family trips to a Rider games annually ever since. They are season ticket holders in Section 102 at Mosaic Stadium and Terry, the family dad and author of this book, makes several additional trips to Regina and Grey Cup each season. Rider Pride on the American Side tells this unlikely, humorous and compelling story. You'll follow the McEvoy family as they became fans and eventually even long-distance season ticket holders. You'll meet dozens of characters: players, fans, team offiicals and retired Rider greats. You'll get an interesting American perspective of Saskatchewan, the CFL, and the Riders from the well-told, interesting tales of a man whose writing makes a reader feel just like they are part of the story. Best of all, you will relive the Riders' historic 2007 home playoff game and Grey Cup run. Rider legend Dave Ridgway, one of the many friends this family has made in their Saskatchewan football journeys, contributes a thoughtful, insightful new Foreword. Current Rider Dustin Cherniawski introduces the book with the perspectives that only a Rider player can possibly have. This quality hardcover edition, at 304 pages with dozens of photos, is the logical successor to McEvoy's 2006 edition, with approximately 100 pages of new material covering the 2006 and 2007 CFL campaigns.
