CFL, Eh?

Should have let you know that Garrett Waggoner '13 and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers were on TV last night, but it wasn't much of game as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats posted an easy 52-26 win.

Waggoner was a regular on special teams but was not credited with any tackles. Across the way, former Cornell quarterback Jeff Mathews had a one-yard sneak for a touchdown and completed both of his passes for 41 yards for the winning team. The Ti-Cats are coached by Kent Austin, who coached Mathews at Cornell.

Winnipeg actually had the first lead of the game, going up 1-0 just two seconds in.

Whoa. Wait a minute. Did he just say 1-0?

That's right, the Bombers took the lead on a "rouge."

Former Dartmouth tight end Damon Jones '95 has a 6-foot-6, 279-pound offensive lineman on the Florida high school football team he coaches and thinks he's a DI talent. Find the story HERE.
Onetime Dartmouth distance runner Jarrod Shoemaker '04, who made it to the 2008 Olympics in triathlon, has contributed a very interesting piece to Derek Jeter's The Players' Tribune.

If you think being a pro athlete looks like fun, check out Shoemaker's story and photos HERE. (Thanks for the link.)
