For just the third time in 60 years, the Toronto Argonauts will play in a Grey Cup game at home, as they host the Calgary Stampeders tonight at Rogers Centre. The Boatmen last won the Grey Cup at home in 1952, beating Edmonton 21-11 at Varsity Stadium. They lost the 1982 finale 32-16 to the Eskimos at Exhibition Stadium. Despite beating Calgary in their two meetings this season, the Stampeders are two-point favourites.

He landed in jail as a teenager before turning to boxing. Hector "Macho" Camacho, who was known for his fearsome skills as one of the top fighters of his generation, died yesterday in a hospital in Puerto Rico, the result of an ambush in a parking lot in a car where packets of cocaine were found. Doctors pronounced Camacho dead after he was removed from life support at his family's direction.

Found it interesting last night how ND has two numbers 5's. One on offense and one on defense. One the quarterback and the other the star of defense. I have never seen that before

If you look at college rosters they have several double numbers. They have 99 players on their rosters
