GO RIDERS GO!!

After living a full life, John Hufnagel, the Calgary Stampeder coach died.
When he got to heaven, God was showing him around.

They came to a modest little house with a faded Stampeder flag in
The window.

"This house is yours for eternity," said God. "This is very special,
Not everyone gets a house up here."

Huff felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house.

On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the
Corner.
It was a gorgeous white and green three-story mansion with a 50-foot tall
Flagpole with an enormous Saskatchewan Roughrider flag, and in every
Window, he could see Saskatchewan fans.

Huff looked at God and said, "God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful,
But I have a question. I was a good coach, ran a clean program, took
The Stamps to the Grey Cup, and won a national championship."

God said, "So what do you want to know, John?"

Huff asked: "Well, why does Ken Miller, the Saskatchewan coach, get a

Better house than me?"

God chuckled and said, "John, John,... that's not Ken's house, that's mine."




Go Riders!

Oh, and you are from Montreal too!! Wow....how disappointing!

Congratulations, by the way. We are collectively still depressed here in Saskatchewan.

I was there early and when I saw them searching the menu over and over and calling on the cel phone I had an idea they would not have the game.

I left about 5:40 and went home and watched it on my computer using my Slingbox.

Disappointed in PG's for sure, missed all the yelling and screaming with the crowd, but at least I got to see a great game at home.

I see in a new post that they have reinstalled Star Choice so they can now get Canadian sports. http://www.playa.info/playa-del-carm...dbox-news.html

I have been numerous times to PG's and twice to La Fe ......service stank at Le Fe when I was there........never had bad service at PG's. Obviously the apology from Solkiss meant nothing to you.

Sometimes s**t happens. To right off a place over something that might not have been preventable seems a shame. I have ordered PPV events and then had the system dump. Frustrating ? Yes. But sometimes things happen. I doubt PG's promoted this event with the intention of not following through with it. And not all merchants would even bother to apologize. Some places and people are worth a second chance IMO.

you obviously did not miss the game,that's even if you do follow football, i owned a bar with 350 seats for 12 years here in MTL and know what it takes to please costumers, never ever promote anything if you are not 100% sure you can deliver, bars are a dime a dozen, some give a damn and some don't, just go were the people are and you will see who cares for their clients, and no this apology meant nothing to me, get serious

Wow, chill pill is right..
Once again, we were let down by our provider, and we sincerely apologize for that.

Your first post suggested that you saw the game at EZ, which did not have the game. Our friends at Tequilla Barrell did. Maybe this is an effort on your part to promote EZ? If so, there are better ways.

We have great food, fair prices, and strive to make our clients happy.
I'm SURE that you never effed up at your bar, and that everything always went smoothly, and I congratulate you for that. I hope that this incident didn't screw up your time in fabulous Playa.

I thank our many clients for their continued support.
