Winnipeg Blue Bombers Team Photo, 1962 Submitted by the Minister of Sport, Culture and Heritage, Honourable Andrew Smith

“I have chosen a team photo from the 1962 Winnipeg Blue Bombers.  That year they squared off against the Hamilton Ti-Cats for the 50th Grey Cup and won.  They actually referred to that Grey Cup game as the ‘Fog Bowl’ because the fog was so bad that year that they couldn’t complete the game and they had to play the following day.  The Winnipeg Blue Bombers beat them 28-27!  Quite an amazing feat then and particularly appropriate since the Bombers are now back-to-back Grey Cup champions.”
