He's engaged to a Regina girl and didn't want to be far from his new home here.

The stats don't say how many tackles he missed. Labour Day and Banjo Bowl just got easier.

Remember the day he got the 3 interceptions last season?? It was the "blood" moon that evening, a celestial event akin to the "blue moon". Is that about to come around again soon?? Methinks NOT!

Good luck to you Macho man (don't rely on arm tackling only there)

Macho has had a rough time switching his coverage to coincide with the new pass interference rules. Too many pass interference penaltys. As well Macho has to learn to wrap up his opponent on the tackle. Last year on several occasions I witnessed Harris trying the shoulder block tackle. With complete misses to the opponent bouncing off and going for a large gain. I remember one play in particular where Macho could have tackled for a loss. He didn't use his arms to wrap up and the receiver ran over 50 yards down the sideline for a TD. Richie Hall remembers Machos play before the new rules. I hope it works out for him.

What is a Makho Man? Sounds like a Man from Canada's far North.
I think you mean Village People's YMCA song about a Macho Man!!!
