Hope I got that French right...The Montreal Alouettes won the Grey Cup this evening, defeating the Edmonton Eskimos 25-16 on Edmonton's own frozen field.

As always, the championship match was exciting and the final was in doubt until a missed 2-point convert for Edmonton in the final minute.

Hopefully, the interest in the CFL, which has been on a hell of a roll this year(even, unbelievably, in Toronto), will continue into the 2003 season.

Félicitations Montreal!

huzza for them....shame they had to leave the USA, but oh well...

Yup, they used to be Baltimore. There's still two players left on the team from their Stallion days.

I have no idea why Calvillo was the game MVP. 11 for 31? Ricky Ray had better numbers in the losing effort. Pat Woodcock and Jermaine Copeland were far better candidates for that.

You had to love the strangeness of a blocked punt being turned into a pass interference call. Only in the CFL.

The wrestched field conditions hampered the quality of the game, but the drama was there, and that's all that one can ask for. A fun game, but it can't be ranked even close to the classic from 1989. As for the future, and speaking as a fan of the Tabbies, I'm worried about the situation in Hamilton.

I watched the game at a huge sports bar in Edmonton.

What a horrible first half. At one point there were more blocked punts (2) than points (1).
