Photo of the month: 1950 Grey Cup
During the week, Toronto was hit with a powerful snowstorm and the day prior to the game grounds keepers at Varsity Stadium decided to bulldoze the field. The result was a slippery mess that was dubbed the Mud Bowl. The Argonauts wore the longest cleats they could find and QB Al Dekdebrun (who replaced Krol) taped thumb tacks to his fingers to help his grip on the ball. Toronto went on to blank Winnipeg 13-0 for Earl Grey’s Cup in the infamous Mud Bowl.
