Bombers cool off 'Riders

WINNIPEG—Maurice Leggett has at least three reasons to always remember the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' 48-28 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday.

The veteran linebacker returned a punt 97 yards for a touchdown, grabbed an interception and ran 54 yards for a score, and had a special family member watching among the sold-out crowd of 33,134 at Investors Group Field.

‘Hardrick Hop’ latest craze in Winnipeg

WINNIPEG—When Jermarcus Hardrick first jumped into the home crowd after a Blue Bombers’ touchdown, it caught some fans by surprise.

“I scared some little kids over here,” the 6’5”, 314-pound offensive right tackle said after Wednesday’s practice while pointing to the end-zone stands.

Home fans might see a lot more of the celebration, which has been coined the “Hardrick Hop.”
