Sights, Sounds & Social: Week 17

Week 17 brought the heat in the CFL, as the Montreal Alouettes clinched their first playoff berth since 2014, BC staved off elimination for another week and the Ticats continued to roll.

Let’s take a look at the best in social media.

Hamilton 42, Edmonton 12

The Tabbies put the hammer down on the visiting Esks Friday night, and their now-weekly win graphic didn’t disappoint.

Veteran Simoni Lawrence was feeling good on Hamilton’s throwback night honouring the ’99 Grey Cup team, and repped head coach Orlondo Steinauer’s jersey pre-game.

With BC chasing the Esks for the final playoff spot, the Lions’ twitter account gave the Ticats a shoutout post-W.

Montreal 21, Calgary 17

The Alouettes raised the (non-existent) roof at Percival Molson Stadium on Saturday, as they clinched their first playoff berth since 2014.

Montreal is buzzing, and not just on the football field!

Saskatchewan 21, Winnipeg 6

The Riders claimed the final regular-season edition of the Battle of the Prairies Saturday, playing before an electric crowd at Mosaic Stadium.

Riderville grew by at least one, as a dedicated fan brought along his daughter for her first Rider home game.

Also: Charleston Hughes is still a great guy.

BC 55, Toronto 8

It was all Leos, all night long on Saturday night and BC Place was a festive place to be.

While things deteriorated on the field, the Argos’ social media team remained interactive with fans — resulting in a Lions write-in response.

As usual, BC’s social team took us inside the team’s locker room following the win.

With BC facing a trip to Edmonton next week — and still in the hunt playoff-wise — things could get very interesting out west.
