The game in its entirety. At 1:20:20 there are highlights from the EDF and you will notice that the endzones at the former CNE stadium was 25-yards deep, unlike at BC Place in which it was only 20 yards. I didn't know that the league would allow these obvious field discrepancies as I would think that field sizes must adhere to specific rules and regulations.
Unknown LT Ruben Vaughan could be considered the best defensive Lions that day as he was responsible for a tackle (arguably a late hit at 1:04:33) that forced Tom Clements out of the game.

A haltime show featuring kids advertising Expo 86. Were you or your kids part of that halftime show?
At 3:19:17 the late RIck Klassen went back on the field to receive his Most Outstanding Canadian award.

I gotta say i love both those home and road unis, best all time! Hopefully new owners, whenever that happens, go back to these exact versions!
