Geroy Simon didn't know what to expect when he signed as a rookie free agent with the Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 1999. Fourteen years later, the former Maryland wide receiver has torn through the CFL record books on his way to becoming the most prolific pass catcher in league history. The 38-year-old Simon holds the CFL record for receiving yards (16,188), and he tied Ben Cahoon's record for most career receptions (1,017) last week. He can break that mark Sunday when his Saskatchewan Roughriders visit the Montreal Alouettes.

On a football field in the middle of a French-speaking city on the other side of the continent, the greatest passer in the history of professional football blew big puffs of air from bloated cheeks. "To think that a skinny little Mexican kid from La Puente, Calif., could be in this position, I could barely hold it all in," said Anthony Calvillo, his voice cracking. In a crowded living room in a Downey, Calif., cul-de-sac, a family cried for him. "Endure and fight," said his brother Mario, tears blotting the shoulder of his souvenir jersey.

Former Baltimore Stallion coach Don Matthews, one of the winningest coaches in the history of the Canadian Football League, has been elected to the CFL Hall of Fame, the league announced Friday. Matthews won 231 games and 5 Grey Cups during his 22-year career, as well as five more as an assistant coach. In 1995, he guided the Stallions to the Grey Cup during the league's brief expansion into the United States, which marked the only time a team outside of Canada won the league championship.

How the Canadian Football League has been accepted in Baltimore -- to a point of being cited as a model for other future expansion sites to emulate -- has given reason for the commissioner, Larry Smith, to strengthen his desire to immediately implement the process of adding other American cities.Memphis, San Antonio and Oakland have attracted attention -- with Birmingham, Milwaukee and Orlando also included. Any of those six, or combination thereof, would add luster to the CFL, which has been in business for 101 years.
