Today is Sunday. Yes, the Canadiens are playing, but for football fans, it’s the best day of the week.
Burrow arrived at the game in style. He wore an old Alouettes jersey with the name “Burrow” on the back. That’s because his father played for the Montreal team in the 70s and 80s.
Yessir, Joe Brr.

A fine way to honor his father’s former team, which has just reached the Grey Cup final. Yesterday, Montreal beat the Toronto Argonauts 38-17 at home. Montreal’s defense was sensational, and not even the defending champions and the best team of the 2023 season were able to match it.
In last night’s other association final (CFL), the Winnipeg Blue Bombers defeated the British Columbia Lions 24-13. Winnipeg and Montreal will face off next Saturday at 6 p.m. in Hamilton, as part of the 110th Grey Cup.
We’ll see if Jim Burrow’s jersey serves as his son’s good luck charm. This isn’t the first time a great (American) quarterback has sported Montreal merchandise. Tom Brady has been doing it for a long time, having been drafted by the Expos.
As for the Texans, their 4-4 record is good for second place in the South Division. Houston didn’t have big ambitions this season, but the Stroud-led offense keeps the team in every game. The Texans are an interesting team to watch in 2023-2024.
