Joe Krol

I'm sure that football fans everywhere will mourn the death of Joe "King" Krol at age 89.

The Spec has a good story on him:

as does the CFL: ... -king-krol

and the Argos web site: ... -king-krol

I knew he won four Grey Cups as the Argo QB. I didn't realize he won one for the Wildcats in 1943, making five. He won one in 1952 also, but Nobby Wirkowski was the starting QB for the Argos that game. Five GC victories is unequalled for a QB in any era, making Joe the greatest ever among many greats.

Football has lost a giant.
