The Leafs and Argos combined for some high-level shade-throwing on Wednesday.
Before their game against the Calgary Flames, the Maple Leafs honoured the newly-minted Grey Cup champions with a ceremonial puck drop featuring four Argo players. Toronto defeated the… wait for it… Calgary Stampeders to win the title just over a week ago.

Young stars on the Leafs and Flames are supporters of their local football teams, Mitch Marner in Toronto and Johnny Gaudreau Calgary.
Argos fan Mitch Marner on having front-row seat for pre-game ceremony honouring Grey Cup win: "They walked right through our bench so I got to say, 'Hi,' to all of them and, 'Congrats.' It’s pretty spectacular. They’re getting the (recognition) they deserve." #CFL
