Jean Richard's memory: The Telethon float

Share

This memory was shared by a fan.

I've been an Alouettes fan since the Autostade days when Sonny Wade was quarterback. The year is 1977. The 2 powerhouses were the Eskimos and the Alouettes. My dad was part of the Telethon they had way back then. They were looking for kids to go on the Telethon float. My dad had me stand on the float that went through the streets of Montreal. The weather that year was terrible, but what an experience! I was in the Grey Cup parade! Ice Bowl, Als won that one with the help of a staplegun... 41-6. Good times...
