REGINA - Fans of the Saskatchewan Roughriders football club were hugging each other and high-fiving strangers in downtown Regina after the team won the Grey Cup on Sunday.
Albert St., better known as the "Green Mile," was shutdown to traffic and packed with people.
"It's great for Rider nation. I think it's great for the city, the province, the country. It's amazing we've gone 101 years and only won it three times, so this was a long time coming and it's great for everybody," said Thomas Hamilton, who was there to celebrate with his family.
