All I heard and read all week was how the Als were done for. French and English media, newspapers, tv analysts, the whole bunch were writing off the Alouettes. One Montreal sports anchor went as far as saying he had already made reservations for his tickets at Canada Inns staidum in anticipation for a Montreal/Winnipeg East semi-final showdown. Now they're hosting the East Finals and all of the critics absolutely have to shut up.
Winning a game against the Argos on their homefield was the big shift in momentum that the Alouettes needed. They're one win away from going to the Grey Cup game and I can tell you NOTHING will stop them from not only winning that game but taking the Cup back to Montreal! They are going to start a Grey Cup Run similar to that of the 2000 B.C. Lions and the 2001 Stampeders; teams that had sub-par seasons but went all the way. It will happen. It's 100% sure now. For those who don't believe, well, you will all be proven wrong. Sorry B.C. Lions fans, you won't win it this year. It's definately not your year...again. 2006 will be remembered as another Alouette Grey Cup year!
