A sheep got loose during half-time of a Canadian football game


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Sunday night was country night at the stadium of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The Canadian football team hosted a youth rodeo, and, during halftime, a sheep got loose on the field. The ewe evaded stadium staffers for a while but was corralled. The Riders then took the matter by the horns and went on to a narrow victory over the Ottawa Redblacks. Did the halftime delay affect the outcome? You kind of have to wonder. It's MORNING EDITION.
