I've always been a big fan of Pascal and this is why....

Eight-year Canadian Football League veteran Pascal Cheron has had enough.
The big offensive lineman says the Tiger-Cats will do whatever it takes Friday night to earn their first victory of the season.
"When it's hard, you fight hard, and when it's harder, you fight harder," Cheron said yesterday.
The veteran guard said the adversity will test the team's mettle.
"Who are your real friends, who is going to fight with you, who is going to start to whine, who is going to start to bitch, who is going to start to be negative, who is going to want to start to live football and who is going to stand up, step up and fight for what he believes in?" he said.
Cheron said the Tiger-Cats have some extra incentive with the Blue Bombers coming into Ivor Wynne Stadium after pasting them 36-18 on the prairies.
"With back-to-back games, if you're not hungry, you have a major problem," he said.
Cheron said the club must understand the mistakes it has made.
"We have to start playing together and we have to stop being Santa Claus. We gave the games away," he added.http://www.thespec.com/Sports/article/227247
