Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall knows how to celebrate a football victory. The prairie politician joined the Roughriders after they trounced the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in Sunday's Grey Cup game, and he did not look at all out of place.
The win was just the franchise's fourth Grey Cup win in a century and took place in Regina in front of thousands of screaming Roughrider fans.

Wall also took to Twitter to celebrate the win.
Hey @sskroughriders ...,,thank you. That is all.— Brad Wall (@PremierBradWall) November 25, 2013
Last week, Wall declared Green Day to let Roughriders fans, arguably the most loyal in the CFL, celebrate their team. And Wall isn't some kind of politico bandwagon jumping on a popular team to gain votes. The premier is a self-confessed football nut with plenty of memorabilia in his office, the Toronto Star points out.
Earlier this year, Wall recorded a brief video mocking the Winnipeg Blue Bombers before their annual Banjo Bowl grudgematch with the Riders. That move backfired and the Riders lost.
