Every year the Super Bowl MVP famously states 'I'm going to Disney World'. If you had a day with a professional sports trophy, would you spend it in a magical kingdom with a mouse...? OR would you do something cool..?

This is BC Lions Linebacker James Yurichuk's day with the Grey Cup, Canada's Super Bowl trophy.

good to see he recovered all the footage from that day :thup:

The lost footage wasn't recovered. They had to reshoot it. One of the other players gave up the cup on their day with it so James could take it up there again.


I bet that player is owed one HUGE favour!

That's really cool. I wasn't aware CFL players got their day with the cup, akin to NHL players. You never here about it.

I meant to post this a while back....totally forgot to...

the video talks about them taking the shots, losing the footage, and then them re-shooting it all...and talks about the differences between the shootings.

If you go to this link, go up to the other uploads by the person...they have some other footage posted there as well.

thanks for the link to the final cut though

If this kind of stuff doesn't make one proud of the CFL and inspire kids to strive for it I don't know what will

This should be mandatory viewing in Canadian high schools. :smiley:

A think of beauty! :thup:
