Sights, Sounds & Social: Week 8

Ottawa REDBLACKS.com

Here is a look at the best in social media from around the Canadian Football League in Week 8.


Winnipeg at Toronto

The Bombers and Argos squared off on #TNF, with Toronto pulling out a stunning upset; the two teams were feisty on Twitter throughout the day.

Less than two kilometres from BMO Field is Lamport Stadium, home of the rugby league’s Wolfpack; a handful of players were on-hand to support their next-door neighbours.

Naturally, there was a large contingent of travelling Bombers fans in the 6ix, including one Joe Pritchard who, with wife Stephanie, travelled from Wisconsin for the game.

Talk about a big win for the Argos!

Hamilton at Saskatchewan

The Riders social team got every angle of Cody Fajardo’s game-winning touchdown.

Then, they got the Celine Dion pumping and made it, objectively, 100 times better.

The Tabbies weren’t happy with the loss, and Delvin Breaux — the man beat outside by Fajardo for the TD — took to Twitter. (Next up for Hamilton? A home date with 1-6 BC)


Ottawa at Montreal

First off, let’s just reflect on DeVonte Dedmon’s ridiculous, Pinball-esque TD:

Goodness gracious.

It was a much-needed OT win for the REDBLACKS, who were backed by strong road support and now sit within striking distance of a home playoff spot in the East.


Edmonton at Calgary

The Esks were backed by a strong group of travelling fans for this year’s first edition of the Battle of Alberta.

Good vibes aside, Scary Terry got the Stamps back into it with a big response TD.

After the win and despite mounting injuries, the Stamps are once again in (a share of) first place in the West.

Calgary stayed winning post-game, with the announcement they’re fostering a puppy.
