MONTREAL -- A Percival Molson Stadium crowd was in a festive mood with many wearing party hats handed out by the Alouettes to celebrate Calvillo's birthday.
Calvillo brought his party to life with a milestone touchdown pass to S.J. Green, hitting the Alouettes' receiver in the end zone for a 10-yard strike 9:53 into the second quarter.
"I didn't notice the party hats. I didn't notice anything, to be honest with you," Calvillo said. "I was really trying to concentrate on the game and that's the tough thing. I just hope my birthday never lands on a game day again."
Calvillo's 436th career touchdown pass moved him past Warren Moon into second place all-time in pro football history. Moon threw 435 touchdown passes, including 144 with Edmonton from 1978-83. Brett Favre threw 508 touchdown passes, all in the NFL.
"Congratulations to him," said Tiger-Cats quarterback Henry Burris. "He's worked hard and his guys made plays for him tonight. They did a great job of protecting him and giving him time. He's doing a great job of leading that team and that's the reason why they're in first place."
