    History My tribute to Leo Lewis!

    Legendary Winnipeg Blue Bomber RB and CFL Hall of Famer Leo Lewis passed away at the age of eighty on 30 August 2013. Here are scans of a few of the Leo Lewis cards from my collection:

    Nicknamed the Lincoln Locomotive, Lewis was a six time Western Conference all-star during his eleven years with the Blue Bombers from 1955 to 1966. He averaged 6.6 yards per carry and the 8861 yards rushing he amassed over his career stood as a Blue Bomber record for 41 years until finally being surpassed by Charles Roberts.

    The Bombers appeared in six Grey Cup games winning four of them during Lewis' years with the club. The Bombers' opponent in all six of those Grey Cup games were the Hamilton Tiger-Cats who appeared in every Grey Cup game but the one in 1960 in the 1957-1965 period.

    Radically Canadian!

    If we were put on this earth to help others, what were the others put on earth for?
