    2000 Grey Cup Play-by-Play

    Small but enthusiastic crowd greets Lions

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Small in numbers but big in loyalty, B.C. Lions supporters overcame a one-hour flight delay Monday afternoon to greet their Grey Cup heroes.
     Weather delays in Calgary meant the hard-core fans, numbering about 150, many of whom were either carrying newspaper clippings of retiring hero Lui Passaglia, or wearing B.C Lions colours, waited out the delay before the team arrived at about 1 p.m. PST.

    88th classic does not disappoint

    By CHRIS STEVENSON -- SLAM! Sports
     CALGARY - It was another Canadian classic - well, at least a classic finish - another example of how time and again the Grey Cup finds a way to pull itself above the talk of deficits and ticket drives and red ink and shine as the most enthralling sporting event in our country.
     Once again, Canadians played a huge part in pushing the game to those heights as the B.C. Lions pulled out a thrilling 28-26 victory over the Montreal Alouettes for B.C.'s fourth Grey Cup.

    Lui's moment

    By CON GRIWKOWSKY -- Edmonton Sun
     CALGARY -- It may not have been Lui Passaglia's greatest game, but it was his greatest moment.
     To go out a Grey Cup winner is every athlete's dream and the 46-year-old living legend who's been kicking balls for the Lions the past 25 years can now be satisfied he came through when he had to.

    Third and gone!

    By JIM TAYLOR -- Calgary Sun
     Conventional CFL wisdom says the two plays shouldn't have happened.
     There's a yard between the ball and the defensive line. You know the snap count and they don't. On third and short, you give the ball to your biggest horse or let the quarterback dive, and if you don't get the yard, somebody's butt should be in a sling.

    Climie crushed by loss

    By DAN TOTH -- Calgary Sun
     Jock Climie's life-long dream turned into a nightmare.
     To win the Grey Cup, something he's chased unsuccessfully for 11 CFL seasons and for untold years in school yard games of his youth, will have to wait another year.
