CFL Rabbit proves to be playmaker for Calgary Stampeders

Remember the CFL Rabbit?

Of course you do.

It’s the jackrabbit that hopped into the hearts of Calgary Stampeders’ fans during the Labour Day classic in 2015 against the Edmonton Eskimos.

Well, during Sunday’s Western Final – also against Edmonton — a bunny gamed security and bounced onto the gridiron.

“Our favourite fluffy friend from McMahon is back!” wrote Canadian Football League  about the bunny’s surprise appearance.

This hare knows how to run the field.

Only this time, the rascally rabbit added a little snow-camo to the look.

Stampeder fans considered the appearance a lucky charm.

She’s right.

Calgary went on to beat Edmonton 32-28 to punch their ticket to the Grey Cup next weekend in Ottawa against the Toronto Argonauts.

Oh, and for the record, the Stamps beat the Esks in that 2015 Labour Day classic game, too.

Let’s make sure the #CFLRabbit keeps its feet.
