CFL Alumni Allstars Beat Vancouver Police 21-19

CFLPA Pro Players Alumni Allstars beat a Vancouver Law Enforcement slow-pitch baseball team 21-19 tonight, helped by a touchdown that put the allstars out of reach.

A touchdown? Yep, well behind on the crisp performance of the police, the Canadian Football League alumni allstars pulled out a football and ran a play that took them around the bases for a 7 pointer.

It was all in good fun to raise money for the Children's Wish Foundation.

There were skydivers and all sorts of silly antics on the field. One highlight was when a couple of "ruffians" ran onto the field and "stole" a ballglove, only to be taken down by police dogs. Man, those are some well-trained animals. They displayed single-minded focus despite the roar of the crowd.

It was a fun way to spend a glorious sunny evening.
