Félicitations, Mathieu. Bien mérité.

I must admit that I was afraid of facing you during the Western Final since you could personally put a big dent in the Bombers offence. You are a bully on the field yet a gentleman too. You had a great year.

I think you should think about coming to play for the Bombers next year…please think about it. They have a great French Canadian presence in Saint-Boniface who would welcome you with open arms.
