The Free Press has published a lot of front pages since Nov. 26, 1990. But the front page we published on Monday, Nov. 25 of this year was extra-special for long-suffering fans of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The one word headline – FINALLY! – said it all as the city’s CFL team ended the long-standing cup drought that began way back in 1991, after the Big Blue beat Edmonton 50-11.
To mark the truly historic nature of the front page with Andrew Harris hoisting the Grey Cup that he helped bring home to his birthplace, we have printed a glossy 11- by 17-inch version suitable for framing.
That commemorative front page is available to our subscribers for only $9.99. For those who aren’t subscribers, the price is $49.99.
