MONTREAL -- The losing run is over for the Montreal Alouettes, who look like theyve found their starting quarterback halfway through the CFL season. Jonathan Crompton made his first CFL start as the Alouettes used touchdowns by S.J. Green and newcomer James Rodgers to defeat the Ottawa Redblacks 20-10 on Friday night. The former Edmonton Eskimo completed 15 passes for 245 yards as the Alouettes (2-7) ended a six-game losing streak and took over second place in the feeble East Division. "It was a great team win," was Cromptons only assessment of a win that came despite two drive-killing turnovers, but was aided by the expansion Redblacks 135 yards in penalties. Wallace Miles had a 27-yard pass-and-run TD in the fourth quarter and Brett Maher had a field goal on Ottawas opening drive as the Redblacks (1-8) lost a sixth game in a row. "Its tough to win when youre not scoring," said Ottawa coach Rick Campbell. "No team can take the amount of penalties we take. "We cant have the moment be too big or emotional for us, where we lose our way. We need to keep the yards we earn by not taking penalties. Well keep working at it." It was as close as the Alouettes have been to a must-win game this season: at home against the expansion Redblacks and giving Crompton his shot after Troy Smith and Alex Brink struggled in the starting job. Crompton found Duran Carter for five receptions for 127 yards while Green caught five for 48 yards. Running back Brandon Whitaker rushed for an even 100. "He won the football game," coach Tom Higgins said of his quarterback. "One of my best friends, Ron Lancaster, said the only evaluation for a quarterback is can you win with him? "He brings that to the table." Cromptons best moment came after Miles touchdown pulled Ottawa to within three points with 6:14 left to play. On the ensuing drive, Crompton hit Carter with a 48-yard pass that set up Rodgers 17-yard scamper around the left side for a TD in his first CFL game. Rodgers signed this month as a replacement for injured kick returner Larry Taylor, but also saw some time in the backfield. Sean Whyte added a field goal and had three punts roll into the end zone for singles for Montreal. A season low of 19,440 turned out to Percival Molson Stadium for a flag-filled game that until the fourth quarter had few big plays from either offence to cheer. Crompton, who relieved Brink in the second quarter of a loss last week in Winnipeg, was not on the field for the first TD. Tanner Marsh, who plays in short-yardage situations, threw the one-yard touchdown pass to Green in the first quarter after the Alouettes were stopped twice at the one. A pair of turnovers had Montreal settling for an 8-3 halftime lead despite controlling much of the play. The Redblacks got a 30-yard Maher field goal 3:16 into the game. Whyte added a punt single early in the second quarter, but Montreal had a drive end when Cromptons wobbly pass was picked off at the Ottawa eight by Travis Brown for his first career interception. Another drive ended when Whitaker fumbled at the Ottawa two, with the Redblacks Jerrell Gavins recovering in the end zone. Whyte got his third rouge early in the second half and added a field goal. The Redblacks made a game of it as Henry Burris led an 80-yard drive capped by Miles TD. Crompton reportedly winked at Carter in the huddle, then hit him with the pass that turned momentum back to the Alouettes and sealed their long-awaited win. "We still have room to improve," said Carter. "We left points out there. "We could have made the game a lot easier early on. But we showed all the teams in the CFL that were a good team and were not going away. It does wonders. Its like in basketball, where one shot goes in and then you start making them all. Thats what we want to do now." Ottawas last gasp drive ended with a turnover on downs. The Redblacks bright spot was Miles seven catches for 101 yards. Burris went 21 for 34 for 245 yards. Campbell called it another learning experience for his new team. "Theres a lot of good football players who are going to be around Ottawa for a long time and we cant lose sight of that when were losing like this," he said. "Well keep coaching them and finding ways to be better." Notes: Chad (Ochocinco) Johnson returned from injury for Montreal, bumping Kenny Stafford from the line-up, but did not make a catch. . .

CHAUNCEY BILLUPS (Pistons): Yes they got Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings in the off-season and Andre Drummond is a beast (teams are kicking themselves for passing on him - he rebounds and block shots every game - thats two more discernable and significant skills than most guys in his draft class), but dont for a second discount the impact of having a savvy veteran like Billups on your team.

It was my fifth straight year attending and, as always, there are many interesting matters discussed as it pertains to the use of statistics in sports. http://www.wholesaletexansjerseys.com/ .

I had spent ten years from junior kindergarten through Grade 8 at the northwest corner of Bathurst Street and Viewmount Avenue in midtown Toronto. It was my home court advantage. I knew the roll of the rims and the carom of the walls and which teachers were lax at taking attendance. It couldnt last forever. At some point a promotion was coming, and my record setting minor league career wouldnt matter once new maths and makeup-laden girls challenged all that I had honed. I was heading to St. Andrews Junior High. Grade 9. The Show. Embarking on my first day in the wilds of the public school system, I knew I had to make my mark early. Mr. Pelech, my clever English teacher, noticed my t-shirt just minutes into the first class. It was a tattered, ink-drenched Grateful Dead concert tee. He remarked that "Grateful Dead" was an example of a contradiction. Contra what now? Coach tapped my shoulder and I hopped the boards. I proceeded to argue with a shellshocked Mr. Pelech for several minutes. My arguments were lithe, varied and completely illogical, but I had been trained to stand my ground no matter how ridiculous my position. Eventually, a hapless Mr. Pelech scanned the class and sputtered, "Just who is this guy?" Each one of my classmates shook their heads sheepishly as if to say uh, dont look at me. Mark made. Within two weeks I owned that school. They didnt realize the repressed explosiveness that ten years of private school Yiddish lessons would unleash. It is in this brazen spirit I introduce myself to you now, Dear Reader, as your new weekly columnist for Bardown. Why was I chosen as The One to guide you through the international sports landscape, particularly with so many scribes vying for your sports-saturated eyeballs? Commence the elucidation (AKA bring da noize): Basketball. This is my wheelhouse. I know all the lyrics to Kurtis Blows Basketball and I have for decades. I own a Sweet Georgia Brown-humming Harlem Globetrotters pinball machine from 1979. I still play pickup every week at a local high school against stiff competition in their very extremely late twenties. Also, I was an associate producer for the Toronto Towers of the NBA for nearly 500 games, post-games, pre-games and exactly five playoff games. Ooh, another thing, I call the Toronto Raptors the Toronto Towers because I have some self-respect. Baseball. I spent five teenage summers selling peanuts outside the Dome under the alias Mike Simmons. Despite a promising career as a sidearm Eephus pitch-throwing specialist, the leagues advanced scouts were never able to unravel the mysteries of my potential, because apparently throwing over the plate was a "prerequisite for success". Racists. I submit that using the All Star Game to decide home field advantage in the World Series is akin to the winner of the submission portion of Americas Funniest Home Videos determining the nominees for The Oscars Best Picture award. Also, you can thank me for getting the old Blue Jays logo back, as days after writing this piiece, the marketing director for the Jays was following me on Twitter, and months later a new logo was born.dddddddddddd Also, my therapist says I have something called a narcissistic personality disorder. Football. In 1998, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue the dream of being rich and famous which is why you know me so well today. That same year I became a fan of an upstart outfit known as the Baltimore Ravens because I thought Ray Lewis was almost definitely innocent of murder and I am obsessed with Edgar Allan Poe. Fifteen glorious seasons later I have two championship rings (made of foil and buttons) as my testament. I have correctly predicted, in pre-season, the Super Bowl participants for 13 consecutive years and I defy you to prove otherwise. (Note: Please dont reference my Twitter feed. Just be cool. This claim is all I have.) Hockey. I worked camera on the 2003 documentary A Day in the Life of the Maple Leafs so I know a thing or two about hockey. Well, exactly two things. One, when I was eight years old, my teenage neighbour convinced me his Mats Naslund rookie card could be mine for the extremely low price of my 1979 O-Pee-Chee Wayne Gurtski rookie card. (Note: I have forgotten how to spell that particular Edmonton Oilers name. At least my night terrors have subsided.) Two, I have developed an algorithm demonstrating the NHL to be the worst run league in the history of Industry. It involves a complicated geometric measurement involving my eyes and common sense. (A fact I will gladly prove over and over again until they, oh I dont know, realign the conferences to have an equal amount of teams. Lets start there.) Fantasy Sports. I Am Legend. In its heyday of 2001, my sprawling website, mikegallay.com, was a sports fantasy powerhouse boasting 16 writers covering all sports, catering to an audience of nearly 16 unique daily readers (and fans of ravines who misspelled mygulley.com). Chances are, if you were a Canadian sports fan in the early 2000s, you were reading articles about topics we also covered on mikegallay.com. The Professor And Mary Ann. I will happily cover all the secondary sports every time a participant either murders someone, is attacked by a spouse using the tools of their own sport, has sex on camera on TMZ, or breaks an important racial, cultural or gender barrier while also keeping our interest for more than eight minutes. Thats my pledge. Am I the precisely correct author to bring you whimsical, satirical, deadly accurate analysis of the sports that matter to you? Absolutely. And can I say that with total sincerity because part of my contract stipulates I have no editor? Two for two. Have I earned your attention to read my column next week? Lets put it this way. My topic will be 23 Ways to Make Over 7K a Week Working Part Time From Your Couch. My third column will be Bardown Seeks New Columnist, No Experience Required.   Gallays Poll #1 What would you like to see Gallay write about in his next column? a) A 20,000-word essay conclusively proving Mike is the third Williams sister. b) Doug Gilmours Secret Recipes for 3am Snacks. c) My Weekend In The Hamptons With Barry Bonds. d) No column, just use this space to expand Badminton coverage.
