Check the Spec article today on “Home Openers”. Apparently we had two openers in 1972. On July 31st we beat Saskatchewan 20 to 17, and later in the day we also beat Ottawa, According to the caption under the picture on the left page. It must have cooled off later in the day because everyone is in winter clothing in the picture, cold July I guess. We also beat Winnipeg 33 to 13 on July 8, 1998 and game back from a “17 Point” deficit to do it.
Just another example of global warming as any old timer will tell you they always wore their long johns, coon skin caps and fur coats well into August..
