Bruce isn't getting into Argos' heads

Think Arland Bruce has the Argonauts quaking in their boots? Not true.

The former Argos receiver had 115 receiving yards against Toronto on Monday in a 34-15 Ticats victory, but 87 of those yards came on two catches.

"We're not worried about Bruce, we're not worried about their offence," Argos linebacker Zeke Moreno said. "We know what they are capable of and what we are capable of."

Bruce has promised a big celebration if he gets into the end zone at the Rogers Centre, which he referred to earlier this week as "my house."

Stillwagon speaks

The Argos got an earful from one of their legendary alumni yesterday.

Jim Stillwagon, who will be named an all-time Argo during halftime tonight, addressed the team after practice.

"I told them it's never too late to turn things around," Stillwagon said.

"There is failure and success, and the difference is attitude. If you have the right attitude, you can win anything."

Stillwagon was a defensive tackle for the Argos from 1971-75 and was a three-time CFL all-star. The 60-year-old lives in Columbus, where he owns a promotions company.

Glenn knows Brown

The presence of defensive end Jonathan Brown for the Argos should make the Ticats' desire to repeat a little more difficult.

Brown, a four-time East Division all-star, will play in his first game of the season after recovering from a back injury.

"Their defence is already good," Ticats quarterback Kevin Glenn said.

"I have been in this league a long time, played against Jonathan a lot, and I know what kind of player he is.

"They're installing another player and they're not falling off."

Briefly

No less than 32,246 beers were bought during the Labour Day Classic at Ivor Wynne, the most sold in a single day in the history of the facility ... Argos punter Eddie Johnson has been put back on the injured list with problems stemming from his separated shoulder, which means the team's weird decision to dress two import kickers has come to an end, for now. Justin Medlock will kick and punt tonight.
