Mike Sweeney’s spot-on impression of Saskatchewan Roughrider head coach Chris Jones has given Rider fans something to laugh about, despite their 0-2 start.
Sweeney, whose Twitter bio identifies him as a producer for Regina radio station CJME and a graduate of the University of Regina, posted a video in the wake of the Riders 43-40 overtime loss to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
It’s actually not the first time Sweeney has poked fun at the Riders coach….

It’s clear from Sweeney’s timeline that he’s bonafide Riders fan – he’s sporting a Sam Eguavoen jersey this season – and the Riderville faithful have clearly taken the videos in the proper spirit. A sampling of the reaction….
Great stuff Mike! You need to change your handle to Fake Chris!!
