Weather wordsmith pens awesome Grey Cup forecast

Looks like someone at Environment Canada really, really likes CFL and really, really is looking forward to tomorrow's Grey Cup.

Whoever was on the Regina desk released this little gem late Saturday morning:

"'TWAS THE DAY BEFORE GREY CUP AND ALL THROUGH REGINA,

IT FELT LIKE A DEEP FREEZE, BUT KICKOFF LOOKS FINER.

THE WARM AIR WAS POISED TO RETURN WITH A FLAIR,

IN HOPES THAT THE TROPHY SOON WOULD BE THERE.


THE RIDERS WERE READY WITH DRESSLER AND SHEETS,

IN HOPES THAT DURANT COULD MAKE LOTS OF COMPLETES.

THE TI-CATS WOULD COUNTER WITH HANK AND FANTUZ,

BELIEVING WITH THIS ALL-STAR ROSTER THEY CAN'T LOSE.


IT'LL BE PARTLY CLOUDY, ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT,

AND SO THERE SHOULD BE NO SNOW FLURRIES IN SIGHT.

NORTHWEST WINDS WILL BLOW CONSTANT, AT THIRTY OR SO,

SO PLAY MAY BE ALTERED BY WINDS THAT DO BLOW.


THE HIGH GREY CUP SUNDAY WILL BE MINUS ONE,

WITH SUNSET NEAR KICKOFF, IT'LL COOL WITH NO SUN.

SO BY THE FOURTH QUARTER, IT SHOULD BE MINUS FIVE,

WHICH SHOULD KEEP BOTH TEAMS' GREY CUP DREAMS ALIVE.


THE WIND CHILL WILL BE THERE THROUGHOUT ALL THE GAME,

AT MINUS FIFTEEN, KEEPING WARM IS THE AIM.

GET READY, REGINA, AS THE PLAYERS LACE UP,

TO BUNDLE UP WELL AND ENJOY THE GREY CUP!"

Whoever that weather wordsmith was, it might have been the same guy who left Environment Canada's Facebook page peppered with painful puns on Friday (also, it's possible he's a Riders fan).
