AB: During a football game between the Calgary Stampeders and the Saskatchewan Rough Riders, the Stampeders pass catcher, Terry Evanshen's left ankle was broken. Harsh weather conditions saw the players trying many different kinds of footwear that would give them traction on the slippery field. Not satisfied with his choice of footwear Regina's Ron Atchison tossed out his shoes with steel cleats and donned his "hush puppy" shoes. Describing the rest of the game, Coleman marveled at the play under these adverse conditions.
