What will you remember most about the 96th Grey Cup? Sun, November 23, 2008
The Calgary Stampeders came back twice to beat the home team Montreal Alouettes 22-14 in the 2008 Grey Cup.
The Stampeders needed five field goals from the foot of kicker Sandro DeAngelis, named the top Canadian, to prevent the Alouettes from becoming the first team since 1994 (B.C. Lions) to win the Grey Cup on their home field. And Henry Burris, 'Smilin' Hank' to Stamps fans, got the trophy he most coveted.
The 96th version of the Grey Cup certainly wasn't the offensive explosion we've come to expect from CFL championship games. But there were some entertaining moments and both teams moved the ball almost at will, only to come up short of the end zone.
What are your thoughts on the game? What stands out the most for you?
