MONTREAL -- Turtle Man's Touchdown Tour has hit the road, this week invading Quebec for the third instalment of the show.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers slotback Milt Stegall, in case you haven't heard, needs one more touchdown to become the CFL's all-time leader with 138, surpassing legendary running backs George Reed and Mike Pringle.

The anticipation is killing everyone, and if it doesn't happen soon Stegall might be the one doing the killing, as he's growing just a tad weary of the questions about the record and whether or not it's a distraction.

The venue for tonight's show is Molson Stadium, the home of the Montreal Alouettes. Present will be 20,202 spectators who would love to see Stegall -- and the Bombers -- go home empty-handed.

Stegall had two chances to set the record at home over the last two weeks, but both the Alouettes and the Edmonton Eskimos kept him out of the endzone.

Now the Alouettes get another shot at avoiding infamy, at not being the team that allowed Stegall to soar into CFL immortality.

The odds are definitely in Montreal's favour. Stegall hasn't scored a touchdown in his last five games against the Alouettes, and he has only four scores in his last nine visits to La Belle Province.

The way this record pursuit is going, however, expect it to finally happen when you least expect it.
