1959
The hunt for a new Head Coach brought Wayne Robinson from Winnipeg. With a new rookie running back named Willie Fleming and a corps of veterans, a final game triumph at home over Calgary gave the Lions their first playoff spot and a winning record of 9-7. Two straight losses to Edmonton ended their playoff debut, but the future looked bright.

Articles that on the game that clinched the Lions' playoff spot. Against Joe Kapp who was with Calgary at the time, the Lions QB was Randy Duncan. Despite being the fact that he QB'd the Lions first playoff team, I'd say nobody remembers such a name of Randy Duncan.

祝加拿大加式足球聯賽不列颠哥伦比亚卑詩雄獅隊今年贏格雷杯冠軍。此外祝溫哥華加人隊贏總統獎座·卡雲斯·甘保杯·史丹利盃。還每年祝溫哥華白頭浪隊贏美國足球大联盟杯。不要忘記每年祝溫哥華巨人贏西部冰球聯盟冠軍。

改建後的卑詩體育館於二十十一年九月三十日重新對外開放,首場體育活動為同日舉行的加拿大足球聯賽賽事,由主場的卑詩雄獅隊以三十三比二十四擊敗愛民頓愛斯基摩人隊。

祝你狗年行大運。

恭喜西雅图海鹰直到第四十八屆超級盃最終四十三比八大勝曾拿下兩次超級盃冠軍的丹佛野馬拿下隊史第一個超級盃冠軍。
