Most Roughriders fans have attended a game at historic Taylor Field and the newer Mosaic Stadium, taken a photo in front of the George Reed and Ron
Lancaster statues, and proudly belted the lyrics to "Rider Pride" on game day. But even the most die-hard fans don't know everything about their beloved Riders.

In 100 Things Roughriders Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die, longtime Regina Leader-Post scribe Rob Vanstone has assembled the facts, traditions, and achievements sure to educate and entertain true fans. Learn about Neil Joseph "Piffles" Taylor, Ron Atchison, Gene Makowsky, Darian Durant, Jeff Fairholm, and Jon Ryan, among many other pivotal figures. Which of the many origin stories about the Roughriders' nickname is most credible? How did "Piffles" Taylor lose his eye? Which prominent Rider named his child after Taylor Field? Which NFL team declined to match Glenn Dobbs' offer from Saskatchewan, allowing him to become a Roughrider? Vanstone has collected every essential piece of Roughriders knowledge and trivia--including "The Little Miracle of Taylor Field"; the triumphant Grey Cup victories of 1966, 1989, 2007, and 2013; and "The Kick"--as well as must-do activities, and ranks them all from 1 to 100, providing an entertaining and easy-to-follow checklist for fans of all ages.
