CALGARY - The year was 1995.

Wally Buono was stalking the Calgary Stampeders’ sideline.

The team finished first in the North Division.

The Baltimore Stallions won the Grey Cup, beating the Stampeders in, of all places, Regina, the site of this year’s festivities.

Dave Dickenson was still quarterbacking the Montana Grizzlies.

That was also the last time the Stamps won 15 games in a single CFL season.

Heading into the regular-season finale against the B.C. Lions on Friday (8 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770), the Stamps (14-3) are hoping to add to a season of record-breaking individual accomplishments and do something this franchise hasn’t been able to do in 18 years.
