Are you ready for some Canadian football?

Arland Bruce III scores a first-quarter TD

The Toronto Argonauts opened up the 2009 pre-season last night at Rogers Centre, falling 37-24 to the Montreal Alouettes. To this point, I haven’t had any coverage of the Argos on the blog, but I’m hoping to get in touch with the Argos P.R. people and get some access and hopefully provide some player features and interviews. Exciting, exciting stuff. Let’s see what happens!

Anyway, the Argos, fresh off a disappointing 4-14 2008 campaign, had a tough time containing Montreal quarterback Adrian McPherson, who looked like a hybrid of Adrian Peterson and Peyton Manning. McPherson completed 9-of-12 passes and rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown in the first half before giving way to Chris Leak. Kerry Joseph tossed a couple touchdowns for Toronto and Jarrett “Sweetness Jr.” Payton rushed for a 14-yard touchdown against his former team.

The Argos’ second and final pre-season game is next Tuesday in Hamilton against the Tiger-Cats.
