HAMILTON -- The Stamps took a break from studying the game film for a crash course in Niagara Falls history.

And they had the perfect tour guide Tuesday as Niagara Falls native Sandro DeAngelis briefed them everything from the volume of water coming over the falls to the last person to try jumping off.

"It was great to see how excited our little kicker was," Stamps head coach Tom Higgins said about the tour.

"All useless information but something a good tour director would know. It was amazing how much information the players actually retained."

After spending two solid days shuffling from the practice field to the hotel and back again, the team needed a bit of a break from the game.

"He told us a story about one guy who got on top of a needle-nose building and parachuted off," Higgins said about DeAngelis, whose family still lives in the area.

"His brother (a police officer) had the opportunity to arrest him and the guy got a $53 ticket for trespassing.

"The team was appreciative of the trip.Most people back home think we've been on a holiday and it hasn't been that way."

TAPE DELAY

Because the Stamps last outing was so awful, the Argos have used the entire body of work to scout this week.

Toronto head coach Michael (Pinball) Clemons said the 49-8 drubbing by the

Roughriders doesn't allow much in the way of evaluation because everything went Saskatchewan's way.

"We scout them based on the wealth of material we have over the past couple of years," Clemons said. "Right now, they have emerged as one of the top teams in our league."
