Great to see Smilin' Hank enjoy the success he deserves.

Calgary's Henry Burris is without question one of the premiere quarterbacks in the league. With the guidance and leadership of John Hufnagel, I think we're going to watch a talented athlete blossom into a tremendous quarterback.

Calgary and Montreal have been the two best teams throughout the regular season in their divisions, and it should make for a tremendous, exciting Grey Cup.

Must be a thrill for Montreal to play for the championship in front of a home crowd. Montreal is normally a vibrant city. This week it's going to be off the hook.

Sources out of Alberta are saying the hiring of Mike Kelly is all but a done deal. Kelly brings a lot to the table, and has been very patient in waiting for the opportunity to lead the Blue.

I think Kelly will be a great head coach.

He's the kind of guy that will build a team environment where guys would follow him into a fire. He says what he means, and means what he says.

Players like a leader who is going to give them the straight goods.

If Kelly becomes head coach of your Winnipeg Blue Bombers, I assure you the environment he creates and nurtures will be an aspect of the team that will contribute to its success.

When here as an offensive coordinator, Kelly put guys in a position to be successful.

As a coach it is imperative that you recognize the skills of your players and how to make the most of them. Kelly will do this.

The club will go through a process in the selection of its next head coach.

It looks as though the head coach will also have general manager responsibilities.

That will limit the number of applicants that will have the necessary background for the job.

Kelly's experience and history with the organization seems to be a perfect fit.

One hopes that we as human beings learn from our mistakes and become better people as we move forward through life.

No matter what our age, we all have the capacity to improve ourselves.

How we treat others around us is an important part of how we are defined as a human being.

No matter what our position in society, or within an organization, we must always conduct ourselves with kindness and respect. This is what we are remembered by long after we are gone.

Doug Berry, I sincerely wish you well on your journey through life.
