    Amazing Grey Cup final. This game will go down in history as one of the epic matches in the CFL. It was mostly a down game for Montreal. But they are a character team and fought with determination to take the game at the very last second of the game. You really need to see the highlights to understand the amazing comeback in this game.

    Montreal was playing against Saskatchewan. The game was playing in Calgary with 99.9% Sask fans all dressed in green and screaming and yelling for the whole match. Montreal played an awful 1st half and looked out of it. I was at work when I saw the score was 20-10 for Sask. I drove home and expected to see the guys in green holding up the Grey Cup. But nope. The game was not over. The ending just seems to point towards this being destiny for how incredible it was. Montreal actually missed the field goal to win it but they got a 2nd shot at it when Sask was caught with an extra player on the field. The 2nd kick did not miss and it was absolute joy and exhilaration to see this ending after feeling so frustrated during the rest of the game.

    Just saw the players at the parade. They were even allowing ppl to touch the grey cup. Wow that cup is a bit dinged up, lol. It feels very light. Was fun to see everyone having a good time and enjoying this amazing come-from-behind win.
