    Yes, JR's son -- Elliot (sp?) -- made the roster of the CFL's Edmonton Eskimos.

    Good to know there's also an Elliot of any variation with athletic ability too! :)

    Nice job, Slappy. I have some athletic ability. I just prefer to keep it hidden.

    Richardson had an interception with a 39-year-return to help him make the team. The coach, Richie Hall, is a hell of a guy and knows how to run a defence.

    But does he know how to run a "DEFENSE" ?

    Just wanted to say that he's actually a little faster than this would indicate. [Sorry, Elliotte .... couldn't resist]. :D

    Elliotte's right about the interception.

    A couple of people in our Edmonton office were at the game against the Riders and said he read the play perfectly. (Game wasn't on TV)

    Will be playing mostly special teams. His normal position is FS.

    I have put my Ticats hat in mothballs.

    It's all still slightly surreal. Training camp was harder on me than him, as HC will attest.
