Ready for a bit of a long, strange nostalgia trip? With Os Davis playing hooky – that’s hooky, not hockey – this week, Rouge White & Blue CFL Podcast co-host Joe Pritchard has longtime sports journalist Shawn Heimberger on the show to talk about the American fan’s CFL experience from the 1980s onward.

But CFLpass has to give kudos to D’haquille Williams of the 2017 and ’18 Edmonton Eskimos and quite possibly of the 2019 Buffalo Bills for landing with an NFL side with whom he could stick.
