exit realty fusion: Making Tears, Lending Smiles - Column by Bob Hughes 6/27/12 - 06/27/12 03:36 PM
 
It was a few moments after the wrap-up banquet for the third annual George Reed Golf Tournament for Special Olympics Saskatchewan had ended in the Wascana Golf and Country Club. A man, who has been a faithful sponsor of the tournament for three years, got out of his chair and came over to me. He had never played in the tournament, though. His eyes were slightly swollen and a little misty and his complexion had turned red.
 
He shook my hand, and said, “This is absolutely tremendous. This has been so good, so inspiring, so everything. I’ve never been … (0 comments)

exit realty fusion: A Day of Education and Sheer Inspiration - Column by Bob Hughes - 12/16/11 09:39 AM
 
It was a highly charged gathering of an eclectic group of people, each diverse in careers and personalities, that gathered at the Wascana Golf and Country Club in Regina just 10 days removed from Christmas. Arriving in the dark before the sun had risen, they were greeted by a glittering array of Christmas lights and decorations out in front of the clubhouse. And, as the sun rose, they were presented with an arresting view of the prairies background by the vista that is Regina’s expanding skyline off in the distant.
They had come as guests of EXIT Realty Fusion to … (1 comments)

exit realty fusion: It's Starting to Look a lot Like Christmas! Column by Bob Hughes - 12/09/11 11:26 PM
 
The signs are everywhere. The lights have been turned on at City Hall and the legislative building. The front windows of homes throughout the city are filled with the festive mood that decorated Christmas trees lend to the season. Carlyle has held its acclaimed Christmas festival. The Rotary Christmas Carol Festival filled Knox-Met Church in Regina with the sounds of Christmas.
Christmas is a time to make memories and a time to bring back memories. The first Christmas with children, a special gift, a turkey dinner with family and friends. Our tree, for instance, carries with it ornaments gathered from … (1 comments)

exit realty fusion: EXIT Makes it Worth It! Column by Bob Hughes - 11/09/11 08:24 AM
NASHVILLE – The Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee present a tapestry of arresting colours in the autumn, visible forever it seems, as the mountains roll one after the other into another snapshot of a changing season. There is a drive you can take through them that seems to last forever, and then not long enough, the spectacular showcase of Mother Nature on the podium at every turn.
They are but a few hours’ drive from Nashville, Music City, where the stars of country music live and write and record. And, tourists come by the tens of thousands every year to walk … (0 comments)

exit realty fusion: Could It Be Miller Whine Time? Column by Bob Hughes - 10/17/11 08:34 PM
So, the kindly old coach sat there, in front of the baying dawgs of the media, and the creases in his grandfatherly face seemed squeezing tighter as each word slid off the big mouths of the media wretches, who now could smell blood. And, he was in an ugly mood. And, he was not at all happy having to be there, answering to all these no nuthin’s, whose role in life is something he has always known: To build somebody up and then tear them down. At his feet, lay the carnage of one of the worst seasons in Saskatchewan Roughrider … (1 comments)

exit realty fusion: It was the Best of Times, and It Was the Worst of Times! Column by Bob Hughes - 10/11/11 04:22 PM
The depth; that was the thing. The deeply-rooted depth that created a luxury of challenges, all of them, all, when thrown into the mix, produced a Grey Cup championship and back-to-back Grey Cup appearances. There was the young gunslinger given the endorsement of the kindly old coach to be the starting quarterback on an offense that had what was likely the best corps of pass receivers in the Canadian Football League. They were like lightning, you just never knew where and when they would strike. And, they clapped with the sound of thunder, rolling across the CFL West, bringing home playoff … (0 comments)

exit realty fusion: The Nightmare on 10th Avenue! Column by Bob Hughes - 10/03/11 10:17 PM
Why is it that people in Regina stop at intersections which have no Stop signs, and don’t stop where there is a Stop sign? Because they do. And, why is it that the Saskatchewan Roughriders can’t figure out just what is wrong with a team that was in the last two Grey Cup games and now seems destined for a last place finish? Because they can’t. In the sober, somber aftermath of the Massacre in McMahon, which preceded the Torture in Taylor Field, vice-president of football operations and head coach Ken Miller mentioned he was going to sit down with some … (0 comments)

exit realty fusion: Turn Out the Lights; The Party is Over... Column by Bob Hughes - 09/26/11 10:53 PM
Saturday, it was an unusual day. Saskatchewan’s late summer spawned 30 degree plus temperatures with only a whisper of a breeze. The sky was a sheet of bright blue, and there was more of the same on the way. Ah, yes, more of the same.
In a baking hot Taylor Field on that day in September, it took the stinging words of a B.C. Lions player named Aaron Hunt to bring it all home, to wipe away the makeup and the costume and the makeover. Said the large Lions’ tackle, in words that hurt, perhaps because they seemed so true: “They … (1 comments)

exit realty fusion: Back from the Dead - and with a Big Bang! Column by Bob Hughes - 09/20/11 10:37 AM
Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, the Saskatchewan Roughriders have jerked themselves from the land of the living dead in one of the most arresting stories so far this season in the Canadian Football League. Seemingly ready for the embalmer after falling to 1-7 in a pathetic first-half of the season, the Roughriders resembled anything like a Grey Cup bound team, unless they were willing to buy tickets to the big game in Vancouver. And, then, somebody blinked, and it all turned around. Just like that, actually. From the very beginning of the season, there were three impediments standing in … (0 comments)

exit realty fusion: It Was the Day of Long Knives - 08/22/11 08:54 AM
In a province that gave birth to a creature called Rider Nation, whose hot breaths are never far from the back of the necks of those in command of what was once called Canada’s Team; there is never any shortage of experts. And, so, hearing their baying and howling, the Riders’ upper management, which includes Ken Miller, decided to tie the can to head Coach Greg Marshall and offensive coordinator Doug Berry on Friday. And, name Ken Miller as the new head coach, for the second time in his career. Not a bad job, if you can get it. Miller, after … (0 comments)

exit realty fusion: Finding Time to Help Others - Column by Bob Hughes - 07/14/11 09:38 AM
The other day on his sports radio show on CKRM that is steadily building a growing audience, Rod Pedersen made the observation that if you want to be in a city in Saskatchewan where you can run into some of sports’ greatest stars, then Regina is the place.    He listed off a litany of names that represented a who’s who of sports in not only this province but also from throughout North America who can be spotted in Regina at any time in any place. “You can be walking down the street, and there is George Reed,” somebody who was on … (0 comments)

exit realty fusion: A Special Event - For Special People; Column by Bob Hughes - 06/08/11 07:32 PM
In the long, long ago, it took a special family meeting to start a movement that turned into a runaway snowball that created an avalanche of wonder throughout the world. And in the process, removed for once and forever, a stigma that showed man’s inhumanity towards man. It was the late 1960s when a member of one of the United States’ powerful families gathered her brothers and sisters and parents together in their Hyannis Port estate. Her name was Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Her brother, John, was the president of the United States. She had a sister who, in the words of … (0 comments)

exit realty fusion: Switching to Slow Motion - Column by Bob Hughes - 01/12/11 06:30 PM
Somewhere on the shores of the mighty Wascana, the drums are beating. It is the annual gathering of the Loyal Disorder of Rider Priders, those long enough in the teeth that they remember the enduring horror of the Reign of Error. Across the frozen lake of thin ice are the lights of the city, beaming into the black prairie sky under minus-20 temperatures.
This will not keep the Loyal Disorder from spending the nights in their tee-pees sheltered by the great tall trees that each were hand-planted by the forefathers. When there is a wind, the tents flap hard against the … (1 comments)

Column by Bob Hughes Jim Duncan died the other day at the age of 86 years of age, which is a good and long life and it was well lived. Jim Duncan is well-known around these parts. Only, you have to be a little old to remember that he was an assistant coach with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and a head coach with the Calgary Stampeders. And, he won Grey Cups with both of those teams, with Saskatchewan in 1966 and with the Stampeders in 1971. He was from North Carolina and his voice was a southern drawl and he had a … (0 comments)
