Heh. Isn't that something. That dude is basically their Peyton Manning / Tom Brady. Can't seem to get the video to load for some reason, but the title says his wife had Cancer, and that was the reason he never accepted a try-out with us? Is that the case?

Batch ended up signing with us, and so the CFL dude decided to just buckle down and become the CFL Johnny Unitas

Thank God he never played for the Steelers!
He might be a great guy and sounds like he and his family have been through a lot but I live in Canada and have seen Calvillo play a lot. He is no where near as good as Batch.
