1) 1997 EDF Tor & MTL, thrilling 37-30 victory on a 58-yard touchdown catch by Pinball with 40 seconds remaining. I was sitting right there in that corner and I thought I was gonna explode! :o

2) 2004 EDF Tor @ MTL. I'm sitting amongst 100 or so Argos diehards who've made the trip surrounded by 55,000 hostile frenchmen. Montreal scores the first TD of the game. the place is electric. But when Arland "Take us to the Promisland" Bruce returned the ensuing kick off back for a TD. That was pure elation! Our group was so nuts that the security came over to tell us to settle down. I'll never forget that one!

3)2004 EDSF Tor vs Ham. Kenny Wheaton's 116 yard TD interception. That was a sweet one!


Ah yes, so sweet! The winning TD in Hamilton GC in 96 was great too, partly because of where it was. :lol:

I can't believe that no one mentions that spectacular catch by Eddie Brown in the 96 Hamilton Grey Cup game in that snow storm. I seen a lot of great NFL colt catches, but that catch by down-town Eddie Brown, well I will never forget that catch. Then I also agree with a few guys who wondered how Darren got so open in the endzone for that big catch. one of Baltimore's best Sports announcers, said at the 11:00pm TV sports shows, if that catch would have happened in the NFL, it would have been the years best clutch throw and catch! :-) Lou

Brown's is mentined Lou, and I will bet if that catch was done in the NFL Super Bowl, Brown would still be doing the PR tour about it. Wejust don't know how good we have it, nor do we celebrate the spectacular the way the US does.

Not the sexiest TD ever, but, considering the field conditions, the 99 yarder from AC to Woodcock in the 02 GC is one I will remember for quite a while.
Given your proven record of mind-bogglingly destructive excess, we felt that giving you any more than that, would be like giving Michael Jackson a drum of peanut oil and some cub scouts. Alledgedly.

The only thing that gets that out my head, is to remember Tucker's pair in Grey Cup '03. :wink:

Shoeless Doug is a runner up on my list--I was at that game-sitting near that end of the field-and it looked more scary in person than on TV.

The 94 WDF was a heartbreaker--the Stamps blew several chances earlier in the drive to stop the Lions--and people blamed Flutie for the loss!

Well sorry--it wasn't his fault...

Can't remember the year or the opponent, but Arland Bruce dragging a defender 20 yards into the endzone is one of my favorite TDs.

Two of them.

The 94 WDF. I was living in Calgary, but in grad school and flat broke, couldn't even afford Safeway tickets. So I'm watching from home, and as it got dark, I grabbed a radio and stood on the deck of my 9th floor apartment in the snow listening to J.P. McConnell and watching on television throught the window. Unbelievable.

The other - Fernandez, but not the punt return. His last year in BC (was it 1985?) he had been injured, hurt his wrist while being an emergency punter. He comes back in a game against Ottawa. 'riders take the opening kickoff, march down, get a field goal. BC takes the ball at the 35 - DeWalt drops back, slides away from a bit of pressure and uncorks a ball 50 yards down the middle. Fernandez is running a deep post, splits two defenders, makes the catch and goes in untouched into the end zone we were in. You already knew he was probably off to the NFL at the end of the year. That play, as much as any, expressed how incredible he was, and how much he'd be missed. I've never forgotten.

This one weas great. I alos think that some of Jason Clermont's and Geroy Simon's have been some of the best in the last two years of play. I hope it leads them to a cup this year

Hell yeah!!!! :D You got my two! :beer:

Add to that Flutie sliding his way into the endzone to win at a rainy Commonwealth in 92 or 93 for the win. Gotta love it!!
