Andrew Harris became the all-time Canadian yardage leader, and was honoured with an appropriate standing ovation from the IG Field faithful.

Also, there was this culinary monstrosity:


Edmonton 41, Toronto 26

The Argos hosted their Pride Game on Friday night.

Talkative Esks linebacker Vontae Diggs isn’t camera shy, that’s for sure.

Greg Ellingson’s catch blew up on the interwebs, with the likes of Canadian rugby star Jen Kish weighing in.


Hamilton 21, Ottawa 7

Ottawa hosted its Pride Game the following afternoon!

Philadelphia 76ers player Marial Shayok was in the house to take in his hometown CFL team.

Montreal 40, Calgary 34 (OT)

Words cannot describe that game; please refer to the highlights below.

 

Ridiculous. Pure and utter ridiculous.

And, of course, there was writer Chris O’Leary — he of the ‘Als are due’ comment on Instagram — calling his shot.


Lastly: The Laurier Golden Hawks open as Vanier Cup favourites simply because of the size of their hearts.
