Great writeup here on the 77th GC, between the Tabbies and the 'Riders, arguing it may have been the best Cup game ever. hard to argue. I hadn't thought of Mike Kerrigan and Al Bruno in years.
Günter Schabowski, a mid-level East German bureaucrat tasked with releasing official information regarding changes in border policy, instead told a room of reporters, and thus all of Germany, and so all of the world, that the border was open. The people took him at his word, and the Berlin Wall fell, the first domino in the chain that would eventually see the virtual end of the co-dominant political ideology of the twentieth century. A few weeks after that, while the newly unified Germans and Tom Brokaw all nursed killer hangovers, they played the 77th Grey Cup at the brand-new SkyDome in Toronto, and it turned out to be one of the best football games ever played.
