Another reason why Pinball is class of the Canadian Football League

TORONTO - Argonauts head coach Mike (Pinball) Clemons made a touching presentation following Toronto's 33-8 win over the Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday.
Clemons awarded the game ball - traditionally given to a player who makes a stellar play during the contest - to Anne Howe of Victoria Harbour, Ont., a 43-year Argos season-ticket holder.
Howe, who is battling cancer, was caught off-guard by Clemons' gesture, made before the players in the club's dressing room following the game. A visibly moved Howe graciously accepted the ball and quickly received hugs of congratulations from many Argos players.
"She's a very special lady," Clemons said.
