Maple Leafs' Babcock gets behind his Roughriders

"No one wants to go to a movie by themselves, it seems kind of lonely so I might as well have all the people that want to be with me in the movie with me".

Riders head coach/GM Chris Jones chose not to attend but said he was fine with Carter's gesture.

"Huge", said Babcock, a Saskatoon native. "That's what he does, right?"

The Maple Leafs coach plans to be in the stands at BMO Field, cheering on his beloved Saskatchewan Roughriders when they take on the Toronto Argonauts in the East final, a berth in the Grey Cup on the line. In last week's East semifinal win over Ottawa, Glenn had plenty of time in the pocket and was able to get comfortable and establish a rhythm.

Saskatchewan is trying to become the first West Division team to make the Grey Cup by using the crossover, which allows a team to compete in the opposite division if it has a better record; the first nine teams failed to get there. Saskatchewan topped Toronto in both of their regular season meetings.

"That's a awful computer, by the way", Carter said. "We've beaten everybody in the CFL and it's just like this computer never watched football at all".

"So how does it change?"

"I even told Larry Tanenbaum, 'I know we own the other team, but (Saskatchewan) has been my team forever.'" Babcock said. "My daughter is coming in for the game, and we're looking forward to going and hopefully it's not too cold".
