Watching Your Quarterback Throw The Game Away With A Minute Left Is Enough To Cause A Serious Headache

Up by 12 with three minutes remaining, the Calgary Stampeders seemed a lock for a win over Montreal last night. A quick Alouettes touchdown followed by a boneheaded interception by Stampeders QB Kevin Glenn —we called it, at the time, Favresque— with a minute remaining that had even the CFL's website in denial resulted in an improbable 33-32 Montreal victory before a crowd diminished by Alouettes fans who'd departed for the exits when a loss seemed certain. There was still drama at the end, as Calgary's attempt to call a last-second timeout to set up a field goal attempt was waved off as officials ruled the clock had expired before the timeout could be called. Put together, the series of mistakes was enough to give Calgary's coaching staff a serious case of the derp.
