Brent Butt Takes Over @Saskatchewan

People who check Tourism Saskatchewan’s Twitter feed during this Sunday’s match between the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Hamilton Tiger Cats will notice something a little different. During the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ football game on Sunday, June 29, @Saskatchewan is handing over the reins to Brent Butt (@BrentButt), creator and star of the Corner Gas television series.

Butt will be joined by Corner Gas co-stars Fred Ewaniuk (@FredEwanuick) and Lorne Cardinal (@LorneCardinal), along with Corner Gas: The Movie special guest stars Darren “Dutchy” Dutchyshen (@dutchysc), Jay Onrait (@JayOnrait) and Dan O’Toole (@fs1otoole).

The game will be broadcast live on TSN at 5:00 p.m. local time. Fans are encouraged to join in on the fun and follow the @Saskatchewan Twitter account, as Butt live-tweets the match between the Roughriders and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats meeting for the first time since the 101st Grey Cup.

Attendees at the game can also take a “selfie” from the stands of Mosaic Stadium and enter their photo into the ExploreSask Photo Contest. Entrants into the SaskSelfie category of the contest will be eligible to win a GoPro Hero 3+ camera. For full contest rules and to submit photos, click here.
