The misery to end for Boatmen

Adriano Belli loves to tell it as he sees it.

And the Argonauts tackle was not ready to give the Montreal Alouettes a clean pass to get fitted for Grey Cup rings at the end of the month.

The Argos play host to the Als at the Rogers Centre this afternoon in their last game of 2009.

"It's going to be nice to kick ,the Grey Cup champs' ass before they win the Cup," Belli said.

So you're saying Montreal definitely will win the Cup on Nov. 29 in Calgary?

"I think they have to get past Hamilton first," Belli said. "If (Tiger-Cats quarterback) Kevin Glenn keeps playing the way he is playing, the Ticats have just as good a chance as Montreal. You guys know this league is about getting on a roll and Hamilton seems like they are primed to win it."

Those who show up for Fan Appreciation Day will see Argos quarterback Stephen Reaves make his first CFL start. And fans, if they desire, can bring their pet dogs. Somewhat appropriate as the Argos are snapping at the heels of their worst record since 1993, when they were 3-15. A Toronto loss against a Montreal club that is 14-3, but won't start star quarterback Anthony Calvillo, would put the Argos at 3-15 for this season.

"Delivering a win at home in the last game of the season would be something that would be enjoyable for us to give our fans particularly on Fan Appreciation Day, not to mention the dogs," head coach Bart Andrus said.
