CFL on CBC may have had the best production team, and THEME music of all time. Even better than HNIC on CBC or Monday Night Football on ABC.
Many of you today who weren’t around when CBC did the big CFL game of the week in the '80s and early '90s don’t know how good it was. The music, the production, the anouncing. OUTSTANDING! Here are some clips I brought up and am now posting. enjoy --------------something must have happened at CBC cause in the late '90s it all went down hill.
The theme song was just outstanding.
Hopefully when CBC gets back into the CFL broadcasting they can bring back this theme song.
It brings back tons of memories, when ever I hear this song, just like it did when I heard it back then. Football was on, and usually a great game!
