Not yet rated | write a review
The Grey Cup has been an integral part of the growth, development and story of football in Canada. When Governor General Lord Grey donated the trophy which bears his name in 1909 the phrase "Dominion of Canada Champion" was in vogue. This year in fact will be the 104th year since the cups inception but the 100th Grey Cup game played. Unlike the Olympics which number the Olympic years to include those in which the Games did not occur (1940, 1944), Canadian footbal ignores them (1916, 17, 18, 19). This even though there were stories to be told in that second decade of evolving Canadian football. Each decade since 1912 has its own story, its own moments to remember, its own Grey Cup lore. This book captures those memories. It transports them from our past, illuminates our present era and points to our future. In these pages you will find the Greats of the Game (including author Frank Cosentino and intro writer Matt Dunigan); unforgettable plays, team dynasties, rivalries, and outstanding performances; behind the scenes anecdotes and escapades in the various cities that have hosted the 100 times that the Grey Cup has been played.
