Roger and Joanne Aldag

 
I had the pleasure of meeting Roger and his lovely wife Joanne on a beach in Bucerias, Mexico last month when they graciously allowed me to take their photograph for this painting.  I didn't know who they were initially until we exchanged particulars so they could see the finished work.  I recognized his name immediately, as Roger was a star in the CFL and gave our Bombers fits whenever they met on the football field.  He still looks like he could suit up and help their team.  It's worth googling his name to see his amazing accomplishments through a very long and successful career.  The man is revered in Saskatchewan, and with Rider fans throughout the world...as they are everywhere. Anyway what a great couple that I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking with.  And yes it's true, the pros do get all the good looking girls...ha!
