Week 19 had a little bit of everything; some fun community involvement with the Riders, a white-out night in BC and a great afternoon of recognition for some current Alouettes at their U SPORTS alma later Laval.
It began in Montreal, where the Als downed the visiting Argos to improve to 9-7 on the year.
Veteran Calgary defensive back Brandon Smith announced following the game that 2019 will be his final season. His present and past teammates promptly took to Twitter to salute the three-time Grey Cup champion.
One of the greatest players I ever shared a lockeroom with, proud to say I got to play on the same field as you. Thanks for everything 🐐 https://t.co/64ZWmhxHSs
What an honor to play along side a guy like Smitty. He taught me so much about the Canadian game but also enhanced me as a person. It’s awesome when you can have older peers to look up to like him. #salute my friend. Let’s win this Cup! https://t.co/8w83P4Oymu
