Oh, the Canadian contingent should be ashamed of themselves. Only one CFL pic, and it didn't even represent THE moment in '89 Grey Cup.

For every CFL fan, you have to just say Tony Champion and this image immediately comes to mind...

For those not familiar with this, he did it with broken ribs...

Ooo, remembered another one...

1976 Tony Gabriel....

Oooo, that's a good one, but I couldn't find an example online (apart from one tiny avatar sized one) that shows his outstretched hands and the beer can fizzing behind him...

But I did remember another one....

1972 Angelo Mosca's last game....

There are a lot of Mosca pictures over the years, '63 Grey Cup hit on Flemming, his kiss with Garney Henley with the Grey Cup after that same '72 game, his wrestling career, the fight with Joe Kapp recently, but the picture above is what best exemplifies the theme of this thread.

this thread jumped the shark long ago

Yup. It's basically become Google a picture of a player and post it. Kinda like this...

terry_bradshaw_1979_10_28.jpg

Hardly definitive, but it is Terry Bradshaw, right?

Nothing defines Terry Bradshaw's career more than a watermark.

I'd say this or any time he has done the "number 1" finger point.

Although his pro career was not quite on par with his collegiate years (despite posting a pair of 1000+ yard seasons in his NFL career), Raghib "Rocket" Ismail gave us this lasting impression of his TD romp in the 1991 Grey Cup during his brief CFL stay:

I thought my TO post was spot on.

I said "basically turned into." There is still the occasional picture that works.
