MONTREAL — A lot of people were surprised by Brad Sinopoli’s coming out party.

Nike Lewis wasn’t among them.

If you hear the story told, as only Nik can, it was he who discovered the former quarterback-turned-glue-handed receiver for the Calgary Stampeders..

“They probably won’t give me credit, but I was the first one to say, ‘He should be a receiver,’ ” Lewis claimed shortly after Sinopoli hauled in five catches for 81 yards in Friday night’s 22-14 CFL win over the host Montreal Alouettes.
