GET READY TO PLAY 19 OBBY KHAN SERVES UP SHAWARMA 'IN A SNAP' Former Blue Bomber centre Obby Khan is ready to tackle your hunger this football season and he promises he'll personally do it "in a snap." Having launched Shawarma Khan, a restaurant featuring middle eastern food, this past January, Khan can't wait to open his kiosk – Shawarma Khan In A Snap. Khan said the kiosk will offer up an express version of his Exchange District eatery, serving up pitas stuffed with spit-grilled meats like chicken, beef and lamb along with the restaurant's signature sauces. 'IT'S GREAT EXPOSURE TO HAVE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TRY A LITTLE SHAWARMA KHAN.' Also featured will be The Wrath of Khan – a large pita wrapped around a mix of beef/lamb shawarma, chicken and falafel – and Doug Brown's Big Bird – chicken shawarma with double the chicken.

Khan announced he was retiring after playing for the Blue Bombers from 2006 to 2011. He came out of retirement to play for the Calgary Stampeders but asked for his release after playing in last year's Grey Cup. While he is currently on hiatus from football as he builds his businesses, he doesn't completely rule out a return to the CFL gridiron. "There's still a possibility I could come back and play, but my first priority right now is the restaurant and my family," Khan said. FLYNN CANADA LTD.
