I'd post something here but I'm laughing too hard at the comments being made. Love Chief's comment in particular. Oh oh...sorry guys....I must go back and continue teaching my children that wonderful French Canadian song in preparation for this Sundays romp.....Ummm...umm...uhhhh...Oh yah...."Alouette"
? ? Ohhhhh ? ?...ohhh.... ? ? Alouette, gentille Alouette ? ?
? ? Alouette, je te plumerai...? ?
I didn't know the CFL went back that far. lol
Legend has it that the song was sung in old Empire Stadium when the Als met the Lions for the first Grey Cup ever. They wore raccoon hats instead of helmets and the football was a real pigskin. The cheerleaders apparently sang Alouettah.... in 8 part harmony to the delight of the fans.
Final score: Lions 35, The Als 2........hmmmmm
