Sherko Haji-Rasouli Co-Owner of Mean Poutine

Lions left guard Jon Hameister-Ries isn't just in Montreal to play football. He's here to do research. Co-owner of Mean Poutine in Vancouver, with former Lions O-lineman Sherko Haji-Rasouli being the majority partner, Hameister-Ries goes in search of new ways to prepare the classic, artery-busting French-Canadian dish of french fries, cheese curds and gravy. On a previous visit to Montreal, JHR said he sampled nine different poutine variations at six different establishments. "You definitely can't do your research on game day," Hameister-Ries said. "You have to cut back and eat a little lighter. You don't want to be clogged up on game day."
