Sitting just two points behind the East Division leaders Hamilton Tiger-Cats, quarterback Ricky Ray, below, and his Toronto Argonauts took to their practice field in Downsview Wednesday to prepare for their Friday night game against Hamilton at Rogers Centre.
This will be the second of three head-to-head matches to determine the top team among the two QEW rivals and will go a long way to determine which team can take control of their division as playoffs loom large on the horizon.

Hamilton has an edge in wins against Toronto this year taking the annual Labour Day Classic game in Hamilton, and christening the team’s new Tim Hortons Field with a 13-12 win.
Also on the field but carrying a bit of different equipment from the players was Toronto Sun photographer Stan Behal, below.
Behal has been a staff photographer for the Toronto tabloid since 1983, and has won National Press Photographers Association and World Press Photo Award Foundation awards for his photography.
