1963
A year of Firsts - First Conference Championship, Playoff Round win and Grey Cup Appearance
Following a year of improvement in all regards in 1962, new optimism was voiced about the Lions actually having a chance to make it to the Grey Cup game, which was to be played at Empire Stadium. With a great season from a veteran roster headlined by Kapp and Fleming, the Lions 12-4 record gave them first place (for the first time) and a 2-1 series victory over Saskatchewan put them in the Grey Cup. With injuries going in, and star player Fleming sent to the sidelines early by Angelo Mosca, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats took home the prize with a 21-10 victory, but the fans knew they would meet again. Tom Brown became the first Lion to win a Schenley award, winning the Defensive Player-of-the-Year award.

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。

The Lions first playoff series by winning game 3 of the 1963 WDF. Pictures of the Miss Grey Cup candidates. And it has nothing to do with the CFL, but that entire week was totally overshadowed by the assassination of JFK and front page news of all newspapers featured one of the most memorable and shocking news photographs ever.

I am about to get Tom Browns signature on my 50th All Time Dream Team Poster. He apparently had a stroke not to long ago and is confined to a wheel chair. I am going to offer him a second copy of the poster along with James Parker's and Lui's signature.
Tell me how long must a fan be strong? Ans. Always.

FINALLY!!!

I've always wondered what the 1963 Lions West Division championship ring looked like. Finally, here's a picture of it. According to the site, it says that these are Lui Passaglia's collection, which aside from the 85, 94, and 00 GC rings, the 63 WD ring and the 64 souvenir GC belongs to him as well. Lui was only aged 9 and 10 back then. Obviously he didn't win them himself. :dizzy: He must have received them as a will from a member from the 1964 team who has passed away.

That Ruby/Oswald photo above is a complete concoction. The original below shows that they were in a band together and performing a concert at Ruby's nightclub on the day of the alleged shooting. The other "photo" is just some Oswald fan's re-touching effort to frame Ruby out of petty jealousy for his commanding the lion's share of fan/media attention as the band's guitar hero.

Sports can be a peculiar thing. When partaking in fiction, like a book or movie, we adopt a "Willing Suspension of Disbelief" for enjoyment's sake. There's a similar force at work in sports: "Willing Suspension of Rationality". If you doubt this, listen to any conversation between rival team fans. You even see it among fans of the same team. Fans argue over who's the better QB or goalie, and selectively cite stats that support their views while ignoring those that don't.

First half of the 1963 Grey Cup.

It's good that the Lions were able to take a goal-line stand after the botched punt, but it wasn't enough for the Lions to win the Grey Cup in their first appearance.

Courtesy of TSN, several good highlight clips from various Grey Cup games.

Along with the good comes the bad, starting with the 1963 Grey Cup:
