Remember when members didn’t ruin fun apolitical threads by complaining about posters in political threads?

The Toronto video is a cool throwback. Here is another Toronto throwback:

unless it's just an agglomeration of stock footage from the 1980s lol
Most likely a bunch of stock footage from the 80s, as SkyDome is clearly completed in some shots and that opened in June 1989.

It is crazy to think that event is more recent than the last Stanley Cup win by a Canadian NHL team!

I forgot how old SkyDome is!
I still remember my Uncle through connections got a sneak preview before it opened to the public and he was telling my Dad, brother, and myself all about it for like 20 minutes bragging about the amazing engineering of the retractable dome and how awesome it was.

The public went from "This dome is costing too much money!" to
"Wow, this is a Canadian showpiece"

I'm glad to hear it's being refurbished.

True, but in complete fairness, Molson, you, Wigs, I, and others have used some threads to ridicule and lambaste assorted antediluvian slackjaws with abandon. I enjoy it, but I suppose one must tolerate one if one tolerates the other.

Hmm, I don't follow the NHL, but I was under the mistaken impression that Montreal won one or two Cups in the last 25 years.

Did our jokes about bowlofanuses take over several threads for dozens of pages? No. They were kept to an appropriate off topic thread.

Montreal 93 was the last time..That was the year that a Toronto-Montreal final was very close..The entire playoffs that year were good actually..Lots of game 7's.

Yeah, that was in the spring of '93. The Jays won in the fall.

Stanley Cup and World Series wins in Canada in the same year... seems like a fever dream by modern standards

I had one of those mammoth dishes too. A friend at high school did as well. He taught me the art of clicking the the buttons just off the satellite feed to receive the non-scrambled signal.

He is now a professional poker player.

Not sure which one was on first.
They paired a lot of Beverly Hillbillies and Three's Company back to back (late 80's-early 90's).

This is why a lot of people my age from rural Manitoba know about 'grits' and the 'cee-ment pond'.

the best pairings of the old days were "All in the Family" and "The Jeffersons". Great times on the tube.

I miss going to the movies and asking for popcorn with butter and not getting "golden topping" and when they said the movie started at 7 it actually did.
