REGINA - C.J. Gable was born in Los Angeles and played his college ball at USC.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats running back said it was cold when he played a game at Notre Dame once, but we’re guessing his definition of “cold” changed on Wednesday afternoon in the middle of the Canadian prairie.
It didn’t just snow on the Tiger-Cats when they held their first practice of the week at Mosaic Stadium. The temperature dropped as well to minus-17 C with a wind chill that made it feel more like minus-28.
How do you like Grey Cup week now, Mr. Gable?
“They told me about it, but I was like okay, it can’t be that bad,” Gable said, the poor guy having to do the interview on the field as the well-bundled media huddled around him. “But I was wrong. I was wrong. I think the wind makes it worse.”
It sure does, although the forecast for Sunday calls for a high of minus-1.
