Toronto Argonauts Alumni Association

Calling all Argo Alumni: Where are you now?

FILE - In this May 9, 2007, file photo, Doug Flutie, Boston College quarterback from 1981-84, speaks to the media after being announced as one of 12 members of the 2007 College Hall of Fame class in New York. Nearly three decades later, Flutie is still best remembered by millions of fans for his Hail Mary pass to Gerard Phelan to lift No. 8 Boston College over No. 12 Miami on Nov. 23, 1984. Like Flutie, after Chris Davis turned in one of the most memorable plays of college football history with his 109-yard, last-play return of a missed field goal to beat No. 4 Alabama on Saturday, Nov. 30, 2013, he too will long be identified for a single play.

Boston Herald: Hall of Fame fumbles with Flutie

(Sept. 21, 2016 – Boston Herald)

I need a break from politics before the first debate between the same candidates I’ve been inundated with for the past year. So let’s talk football; specifically, Doug Flutie.

Flutie is up for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is among 94 nominees, a list that will be whittled down to between four and eight awarded the honor.

Will Doug win? Not a chance. Should he? Yes.
