I enjoyed this very much.

Contrary to what I expected, it is not a recap of every Grey Cup game. Rather, it discusses the Grey Cup histories of each CFL team.

At this time, I would like to brag, and say that I attended the '96 Grey Cup, and sat on the 35. Doug Flutie's famous fumble was right in front of me! I'm a lucky guy.

If you are not aware of it, I also recommend the Canadian Pro Football Encyclopedia (by Maher and Gill) which Amazon sells.

I purchased this book as a Christmas gift for a friend. Before wrapping, I leafed through the book. It appeared to be very interesting. I may have to get one for myself. My friend was very happy.

Review:
The Grey Cup is the championship game of the Canadian Football League and like its American counterpart, the Super Bowl, Grey Cup Sunday is a day in which the entire nation will celebrate the game of football and people will attend parties for the game whether or not they are fans. However, the Grey Cup had an inauspicious debut and some interesting games and history during its infancy in the early 20th century. During the 2012 CFL season, which would culminate with the 100th Grey Cup game, sportswriter Stephen Brunt published a book that looks at the history of not only the game, but also of the trophy and some of the teams that have made the history of this championship game very interesting.

Hockey fans know of the history of the Stanley Cup trophy and its humble beginnings. The Grey Cup has a similar history of its own as it too was passed from various players and teams that didn’t exactly treat it with reverence. The chapters on the early history of the game alone were worth reading but the remaining chapters about the teams that have won the Grey Cup were interesting as well.

This book did not simply list each game’s winner and give a brief description of the games, although there is an index listing the winning team, losing team and MVPs for each year up to 2011. Chapters were in chronological order, but chosen for significant moments in Grey Cup history. For example, the 1948 season was highlighted as the year that not only a team from the western portion of the country won the game, but it was when the Grey Cup became a national party.
