The local media came out in force to cover the Alouettes’ Grey Cup parade, especially on TV, which really surprised me.

I was stuck in the crowd, but here are some photos I got of the TV media covering the party afterward.

Lambert taps Randy Tieman on the back to say hi. Alouettes players are much closer to the few reporters who cover them than Canadiens players are to the media circus that follows them everywhere.

There’s this thing about local TV people, people want their pictures taken with them. I’ve never quite understood the concept.

Everybody!

But hey, as long as they’re all having fun, who am I to judge? I go to parties and take pictures of TV reporters. We’re all strange in our own way.
