This should rev you up Lions fans.  Only about 90 days to go...

Personally, I would have liked to see the '64 Grey Cup up there somewhere.  The Ticats did a number on the Lions in '63 but in '64 when they had the rematch against BC it was sweet revenge for the Joe Kapp [QB] and the Lions.

I also think the 2011 Grey Cup game should have been ranked #1 because it was in that year that the Lions crawled up out of the ashes and were resurrected.  The team won only one game in their first 7 starts and appeared destined for an early grave.  Instead they came in 1st place, won the western Final and then the Grey Cup!

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the clip.

the thing that always has bummed me out about the 85 cup is that mervyn was unable to play.

the icing on the cake in 2011 for me was finally getting back at wpg for 88

while I think that 94 was the best, it somewhat pales in comparison to the previous playoff games in Edmonton and Calgary.
Crush cream soda is oh so good.  I think I'll have another

I 100% agree!  The best game I ever watched was the come from behind victory in the '94 Western Final between the Lions and Stampeders.   It was in terrible snow conditions.  Doug Flutie was the QB for Calgary.  Wally was the Calgary coach.  Calgary was about to finish off the Lions with a FG but it was blocked.  Doug Flutie's brother caught the last second, last play, game winning TD in the end zone after McManus [Lions QB] engineered a phenomenal drive.   Flutie's hands must have been freezing, it was so cold and snowy but he managed to still hold onto the ball.  Find it on Youtube sometime.  I've posted it a few times here on the forums.  I'll never grow tired of watching that ending!

Not lucky enough tho.

I was working in Edmonton that fall and so I never thought to ask my wife to record the first two games although I did watch them.  I did ask her to record the Cup and it is a good quality recording. However, I had phoned the CFL head office to see if I could get copies of the other two games and he said I could buy from them at either 60 a piece, or 60 for both.  The copies they sent me were of poorer quality.  Still watchable but..  Anyhow, I phoned back and the guy told me that if I had wanted good quality, I should have contacted CBC.  Apparently, at the CFL, they just recorded the games themselves off a tv, then sent me copies of that. Wouldn't surprise me if the guy did it on his own and pocketed the cash.

That is just one of the many reasons over the years that I have not had much respect for CFL head office management and personnel.

Recently watched the 64 Grey Cup on youtube.

Bernie Faloney was amazing for Hamilton. Joe Zuger playing linebacker.

Joe Kapp and Willy Fleming on the other side. Perhaps a start to the Kapp / Mosca dance we saw a few years back.

Great stuff, thanks for posting.
