    I stumbled across Canada's Grey Cup (league championship) on ESPN2. I checked the rosters of the two teams and Cleyon Laing (ISU from 2008 - 2012) is a starting DE for the Toronto Argonauts. Here's his bio:

    Currently, they're losing to Calgary, which has ex Hog Eye Ricky Stanzi as a back-up QB.

    Yeah, what a way to tie it up. I'm sure all those players from the Southern USA love the snowy conditions in this Grey Cup.

    Brother in law coaches for Calgary...will be another tough loss in the Grey Cup.

    Drew Tate was backup QB for them last year.

    Wow! I thought they were going to do it - INT in the (massive Canadian) end zone seems to seal it for Toronto.

    That was a fun game to watch

    Looked up the history of the Grey Cup too. Always cool when the championship trophy has been held for ransom

    I think he had the hit that caused the fumble. Go CYCLONES.
