You Had to See This Game: 97th Grey Cup Finish!

You could count the amount of Canadian Football League games I’ve ever seen on one hand. This particular one I watched because my friend Andy Bischoff is the running backs coach of the Montreal Alouettes and his boss, Marc Trestman, is from Minnesota and destined to be an NFL head coach in someday. Montreal went 15-3 in the regular season, clinching their division five weeks before the regular season ended. They were heavy favorites in the championship game against the Saskatchwan Roughriders but were behind by 16 points with 11 minutes to go in the game. In one of the most dramatic finishes I’ve seen in years, Montreal pulled out a 28-27 victory on a last second field goal.

Qu’est-ce qu’un jeu! F√©licitations Alouettes!¬† (Translation: What a game! Congratulations Alouettes!)
