A Very Winning Song About Disliking Futility

This exists. This is a thing that exists. Hatchie Matchie this is definitely a thing that exists. In 1988 the Saskatchewan Roughriders in association with CKCK-TV made a delightfully ridiculous promotional rap video announcing “that’s enough” to the franchise’s eleven year absence from the playoffs (in an eight team league). The club would win the Grey Cup the following year. (The “Most Promising Group Of The Year” Juno Award would allude them, sadly.)

Incredible.

Also it’s an excuse to post “Red Hot”, which is good and important and the like.

h/t Twitter’s @mourab as well as Andrew Bucholtz at 55 Yard Line for finding and posting this uniquely Saskatchewan masterpiece.

  1. Man, you wouldn’t see local media pulling that off today. The talent may be there but the dollars aren’t.

  2. I think we’re overdue for a proper letter writing campaign to bring these videos back into vogue.
