Lions and tigers and Argo’s, oh my: Flying beer, too much to drink, a late game, a negative outcome for the home crowd, Spider-Man’s’s unexpected appearance and a live tiger on the field at halftime.
Aside from all the hoopla the labour day classic between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Toronto Argonauts was only slightly short of being a true classic. Hamilton power-back Jessie Lumsden rushed for 104 years, well QB Casey Printers racked up 161 yards passing on just 22 attempts.
The Double-Blue’s Kerry Joseph tallied 399 yard by way of sky and delivered an additional 49 yards on the ground leading the Argo’s to a three point victory and their first win over their provincial rivals in three attempts this season.
