Sights, Sounds & Social: Mark’s #LDWeekend

Let’s re-live the best from around social media on Mark’s #LDWeekend in the Canadian Football League.

Winnipeg at Saskatchewan

The Riders pulled out a wild last-second field goal to claim the Labour Day Classic on home turf, and social was buzzin’.

It was also fantastic to see the Grey Cup Fun Police out in force in Riderville.

Despite the heart-breaking loss, Bombers players took to Twitter to applaud their travelling support on Sunday.

Toronto at Hamilton

Darius Raso, the seven-year-old boy the Argos signed to a one-day contract last week, was faithfully cheering Toronto on from his living room.

On the field, it was a tale of two halves: The Argos led by 13 at the break, before the Ticats stormed back to win comfortably.


The Ticats have been posting in-house graphics following each win, and their Labour Day win post did not disappoint.

The reality is Hamilton has overcome significant adversity — injuries, being written off by the media, etc. — and now sits four games clear atop the East.

Edmonton at Calgary

Nothing gets the blood pumping before a football game like a flyover!

The Stamps drew a season-high 32,350, and players and staff took to social following the game to thank fans for the atmosphere.

Labour Day doubled as Calgary’s military appreciation night, with service members trotting onto the field alongside Stamps players pre-game.

All in all, it was a fantastic weekend for some Canadian football — and the fans turned out in drove to see it.
