TORONTO - The highlight of the weekend for Bill and Karen Aulie was watching their son Keith make his NHL debut Saturday night at the Air Canada Centre.

But there was still some celebrating to do before returning to their farm in Roleau, Sask.

The family spent Sunday evening watching their beloved Saskatchewan Roughriders pull out a double overtime thriller against the B.C. Lions to advance to the CFL’s Western Final.

“Growing up 25 minutes from Regina, we went to a lot of games,” Keith Aulie said on Monday of his family’s Rider Pride. “A lot of them were on during harvest and we’d have them on the radio. When they win, there’s always big parties after.

“It’s a little bit different than here with the Argos. But that’s all we have at home so that’s what we cheer for.”
