RIP Prince Hal

I had vowed that I would not bother others with my views over this weeks happenings but I could not stay away without commenting on the loss of one of the CFL's greatest and classiest players of all time.

I consider myself lucky to have watched him play, he was arguably the greatest receiver in CFL history. Guys like him don't come around often.

I would hope that a MOD would edit my mistake, the title of course should be Prince Hal.

He'll always be one of the greats. R.I.P. Hal.

Thanks Robert for the Pic of Hal Patterson as an Alouette back then; I only remember Hal as a Tiger Cat.

Well I remember him BOTH as a great receiver/DB for the Als. . . then as a great receiver for Hamilton. . .and then, as a great neighbour, and then, meeting this legend again, in 2008 at the Grey Cup in Montreal. . . the CFL is poorer today for the loss of this man who defines the phrase "class act"
