Friday Night Football. In Canada.
In the last few minutes of the fourth quarter, Hamilton is leading by 3 and quarterback Dane Evans blows the lead by fumbling the ball on their 10 yard line. Edmonton recovers and scores a touchdown, winning the game 29-25.
After the game is over, Edmonton quarterback, Nick Arbuckle goes over to the Hamilton bench to console the devastated Evans.
Although neither player is Canadian, that’s sportsmanship, and it was nice to see*.
*OK. They do know each other as they played together in college, but it makes for a great snapshot.
