  1. Watching Ozzys kick split the uprights in '99 to send us to the GC.I was with my son and the entire crowd was absolutely insane!Hard to top that!

Don't know where the smiley came from.

That's what happens when you post the number eight followed by a )

Put a space in between the two key strokes to avoid that when doing the number 8.....

like this:

8 )

Winning the Grey Cup in 1986. Beating the Argos in that awesome comeback in TO to win the East, then crushing the Eskies to win the Cup. What great memories!

I was at that Ozzy game...that's definitely my favourite moment...live sports anyway.
Really not sure how that could be topped. That place went beserk.

Actually, almost had my legs busted when the row in front of me rolled back when they all hugged each other! Toppled over them...was all good though. Helluva game.

It was 1998 when Ozzy's effort sent us to the Grey Cup ... but what's 1 year

8) As far as favourite TiCat moments go it would be a toss up for me.
  One would be attending the 67 Grey Cup game in Ottawa and watching the Cats crush Regina 24-1.
   Without a doubt, that 67 Cat defence was the best ever in CFL history  !!

  The other moment would be attending the 72 Grey Cup right here in Hamilton and watching us beat Regina (again) to capture the Cup on a last second field goal by rookie Ian Sunter  !!!

   Downtown Hamilton was a party zone for the rest of that night, just unbelievable !!

   Memories that you just never forget  !!      <!-- s:D -->:D<!-- s:D -->

I was in Montreal for the 2001 Grey Cup and CFL Awards show where I got to see Joe Montford receive his Defensive Player of the Year award. I also got to meet Danny Mac. The day before the game, my wife and I were hanging out at Grey Cup Village not far from our hotel and who should we run into, but none other than Joe Montford himself, his mom and his aunt, who he had flown in to attend the awards show. We just kinda hit it off right away and we, as a group, visited this huge beautiful cathedral near the village, took some group pictures in the park, where Joes mom squeezed my tush :roll: .

Joe invited us to dinner, so we all took a cab ride downtown to a resturant, where Joe ran into his longtime friend Milt Stegall and his family, who were sitting at the table right across from us, it was a wonderful and surreal experience that I'll remember forever. The only thing that could have topped it is if we had actually beaten Winnipeg in the ECF in Winnipeg, which we also attended, talk about freezing cold.

Anyway, it was a blast.

As a participant it's the night I was walking out to the ice from the referee's room and a little girl who was on the novice team I coached but hadn't even seen for three years exclaimed, "Look Dad, it's my Coach!"

As a spectator most have already been mentioned. The one I'll go with is the first time I walked up to my newly acquired seasons seats in IWS and sat down...home.
