The Montreal Alouettes are the Canadian Football League's 2023 champions, and to celebrate the win, they did it in the most Montreal way possible: by eating poutine from the Grey Cup.

The team posted a pair of videos showing the team eating fries, gravy, and curds from the Cup during the victory parade on Wednesday.

First up, defensive back Marc-Antoine Dequoy was eating what the team TikTok caption called a "meal of champions." Dequoy made waves after winning the Cup for saying Quebec and French language were disrespected by the league, so you knew he had to do it right in his home province.

Then it was Tyson Philpot and David Cote who got to enjoy their moment with the Cup.

Star OKC Thunder player and Montreal's own Luguentz Dort took the time to congratulate his hometown team on beating the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 28-24 in Hamilton to win their first Grey Cup since 2010.

"We're all proud of you," Dort says. "We hope you have a lot of fun at the parade. Go Als go."
