Hey guys, I don't know just how many of you speak French, but I do.
This morning, I was watching RDS' news bulletin while eating breakfast. At some point, when they talked about the Alouettes, they interviewed a couple of guys. Among them, Jesse Palmer.
Well guess what. Palmer answered all questions in French. With a big English accent, but a very comprehensible French. I remembered reading an article not too long ago in which Palmer said he was trying to learn French. Just so many athletes say that when they come to Montreal.
Well that guy did quite an impressive job in about three months.
I mean... Calvillo, Cahoon, Philion, Strickland, Chiu and about all the others have been here for how many years and still can't say a three words sentence in French.
That, to me, showed a big comittment to the local population. I have yet to see Palmer throw a ball, but already I find him impressive and I commend him for his efforts.
Cheers to Palmer.
