Ottawa Redblacks Bring Grey Cup Back to Fans
Brad Sinopoli was welling up at the Welcome Home party.
“It usually sinks in when you go to sleep and wake up and you can really think about it,” the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees quarterback-turned-Ottawa Redblacks receiver said moments after the Grey Cup champion squad touched down at the airport late Monday morning.
“But I don’t think a lot of guys slept (Sunday night). It still feels hard to explain it all, but coming to Ottawa, seeing the people, I’m so excited.”
Sinopoli, of course, was smack dab in the middle of the wild, wacky win over the Calgary Stampeders on Sunday night in Toronto. With time ticking down in regulation, he was high in the air with the game in his hands, but the Stampeders ripped the ball out to recover the onside kick. Calgary appeared en route to the game-winning touchdown, riding the wave of momentum and quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell’s arm.
