24 hours: Besides football, do you watch any other sports?

#84 Emmanuel Arceneaux:

I just started watching hockey, about this past week. I kinda like it a little bit ... I just got to learn all the rules of the game.

24: What was your reaction when you heard a Canadian team wanted you to play for it?

#84: I was happy. I ain't going to lie because it was either this or just sitting at home, you feel me? NFL shut the door on me and B.C. and the CFL gave me an opportunity, and my thing was to come up here and try to take advantage of it.

24: How'd you like your first time here in Canada?

#84: It's alright. It's laid back, now the weather is starting to get a little chilly, so I got to get acclimated to that.

24: How does Vancouver compare to your hometown of Alexandria, La.?

#84: It don't compare, not really. Surrey kind of compares cause of where I'm at. Vancouver has more of that night life that you can compare down to New Orleans a little bit, there's always something to do.
