The Vancouver Sun - Lucky 13

From pro sport’s pigskin side, six-year Saskatchewan Roughrider and one-year BC Lion David Sidoo and wife Manji hosted Warren Moon recently in their Point Grey home. The five-time Grey Cup-winning quarterback and Hall of Famer was here to observe and advise UBC’s Thunderbird football team. Sidoo led that squad to its first Vanier Cup in 1982. Thunderbird stadium’s field is named for him. The soirée aided the team-supporting 13th Man Foundation, of which Sidoo is a director. Others include former UBC and CFL offensive lineman Jerry Dobrovolny who, as city hall’s transportation director, seemingly adapts complex playbook patterns to downtown traffic movements. Another, Lions linebacker-turned-investments executive and writer Kevin Konar, reminded former Edmonton Eskimo Moon of “chasing you all over the field.” Beside the T-birds’ field, the foundation is building a $1.1-million learning centre for academic excellence. It also provided new jerseys and helmets for today’s away game with Laval U’s Rouge et Or team.
