Bicycle Bill Passes

It was with great saddness that I read of the passing of Bill Ironside.
I first met Bill at the 2003 Argo training camp when because of circumstances I was in Mississauga four days a week for the month of May and of course spent some of the time watching the Argos practice.
I was sitting on a bleacher bench my first day watching the practice when this guy rode up on his bicycle and we soon were in conversation. It wasn’t long until I heard the story how he ventured in one day in 1997 to see what was going on and became a loyal fan.
He was always there every time I was able to be attend, and along with Wendy Walsh (who sadly passed away last year) we had an enjoyable time.
Argo practices just won’t be the same not seeing Bill come riding in, he will be greatly missed.
