OUT THERE ...

The spirit of Troy Westwood and his tongue-in-cheek insults of Saskatchewan Roughriders fans still lives fresh on their minds, even during non-football events.

Those insults would include the one about them being "banjo-pickin' inbreds."

The Rolling Stones recently performed two concerts at the Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field in Regina and a number of Winnipeggers made the trek to see those aging heroes, including the Winnipeg Sun's own Rochelle Squires. Frontman Mick Jagger was apparently aware of that as he welcomed those who travelled from Winnipeg to see one of the shows. But that welcome was met by boos from those in the rest of the stands, Squires reports.

"No, we welcome even the people from Winnipeg here tonight," Jagger said.

Blame it on Troy Westwood, Squires advised.

However, there were no reports of anyone in the crowd playing the banjo to accompany Mick's Can't Get No Satisfaction.

The concert, we are told, "was amazing."

And a much better performance than the one the Roughriders displayed in losing to the Edmonton Eskimos when they played there two weeks ago.
