Montreal Wins the Grey Cup

It wasn't as exciting as their Canada Day showdown, and it won't be as memorable as their meeting in the 97th Grey Cup, but the Als won't care. In front of a highly partisan crowd, the Als eked out a 21-18 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders to win the 98th Grey Cup.

The Alouettes are the first team to repeat as champions since the Doug Flutie-led Toronto Argonauts won back-to-back championships in 1996 and 1997.

Montreal's Jamel Richardson was named the game's MVP with his third-consecutive 100+ yard game in the Grey Cup. A team effort all the way, and Richardson did just enough to warrant the MVP award.

Congratulations to the Als for winning the Grey Cup.


  1. Calvillo's announcement after the game most certainly overshadowed the game itself, almost making the game insignificant. It was made even more dramatic to see the reaction by the TSN panel after the Calvillo press conference. Chris Schultz was the first to comment, and I thought for sure he was going to break down emotionally. I probably would have done the same. It really would have been very difficult to maintain composure on live TV after hearing news like that. I was proud of the way that Schultz spoke about this, and my thoughts exactly reflect his. I sincerely hope that Calvillo has successful surgery and that he is able to continue his career on his own terms. He absolutely deserves no less than that.

  2. Very much so. His announcement goes beyond football. What he is going through transcends team allegiances. I know I wish him a full and speedy recovery, and look forward to watching him continue to play at the high level we are all accustomed to seeing.
