The Regina Pats unveiled a new jersey and new promotion on Tuesday.
Every Friday for the rest of the season the players will be wearing a new red third jersey for the rest of the season.
The jersey pays tribute to the team's past, the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, whom they are named after. The jersey includes the traditional Regina Pats logo on the shoulders with PPCLI shoulder flashes as well as the Patricia’s crest with the Pats’ bulldog logo in a central shield crest.
You couldn't miss Alex Hall when he stepped on to the field for the first time as a Saskatchewan Roughrider.
The man who leads the CFL in sacks was picked up by the Green and White on Sunday thanks to a trade with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. On Tuesday he practiced with his new team for the first time and at 6'6" Hall is basically impossible to miss.
"To come to a situation like this, a winning team that's going into the playoffs, challenging for a Grey Cup, that's a big deal," said Hall.
There's been a lot of attention on Roughriders receiver Geroy Simon in recent weeks but he insists his mind is solely on his team's fortunes.
It began a few weeks ago when the B.C. Lions came to Regina and Simon played his old team for the first time. Around that same time he was in pursuit of Ben Cahoon's all-time receptions record. The next week in Montreal he would break that record and of course last week he returned to B.C. for the first time ever.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have made a big move ahead of the CFL trade deadline.
On Sunday, the team dealt non-import offensive lineman Patrick Neufeld and a fourth round draft pick in 2015 to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for the league's leading sack-getter: defensive end Alex Hall. The Riders will also claim a second round pick in the 2014 CFL draft.
"When you get a guy that has an impact that (Hall) can do on a game, we felt it was worth the chance to go all-in," said General Manager Brendan Taman, who met with reporters on Monday.
Michael Martin is living proof of what six months of dedication and hard work can accomplish.
The Prince Albert man recently competed at the World Powerlifting Championships in Hungary, where he won two gold medals. He also now owns a world record, through deadlifting 600 pounds.
"I was totally surprised when they yelled out I was doing a world record. I can't really remember what the number was, but it was fun," said Martin.
To qualify for the world championships, Martin had to first place at a competition in Calgary last May.

It wasn't easy, but the Regina Pats have their second win of the season thanks to a 5-4 shootout win over the Saskatoon Blades.
The Blades came to the Queen City looking to build off their first win of the year which came Saturday night against the Edmonton Oil Kings.
The Blades got off to a good start as Nahtan Burns would score his first of four goals on the night 59 seconds in the game. It was a harmless looking shot from the blue line that found its way past Pats goalie Dawson MacAuley, a goal he likely would want back.
Just days before the CFL trade deadline the Saskatchewan Roughriders have added a huge piece to their defensive line and pass rush.
On Sunday, the team announced they've traded non-import offensive lineman Patrick Neufeld and a fourth round draft pick in 2015 to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for import defensive end Alex Hall and a second round draft pick in the 2014 draft.
Blades’ captain Graeme Craig scored twice in the final seven minutes to complete the comeback giving Saskatoon their first win of the season.
Saturday night the winless Blades dug deep after falling behind 3-0 in the first period to last year’s Eastern Conference champions the Edmonton Oil Kings. The Bridge city boys rallied to score five unanswered goals, recording win number one, 5-3 over the Oil Kings.
