During the GREY CUP SUNDAY PRE-GAME SHOW, TSN debuts the following features:
- Calgary: Earlier this year just a few hours before a game against the RedBlacks, Stampeders wide receiver Joe West was informed by his teammate Nik Lewis that West’s brother had been murdered. Since then, the team has rallied around West, bringing West and Lewis closer together in the wake of this tragic event.
- Hamilton: In his second consecutive Grey Cup appearance, Ti-Cats wide receiver Luke Tasker has a chance to bring home a championship – a scenario his father knows all too well. Steve Tasker, a Buffalo Bills Hall of Famer, went 0-4 in consecutive Super Bowl appearances with the Bills and now looks to his son to finally bring home a championship.
- 1964 Grey Cup: A look back to 50 years ago when the BC Lions won their first ever Grey Cup – a game that established a bitter feud between then Lions quarterback Joe Kapp and then Ti-Cats defensive lineman Angelo Mosca over a controversial hit, leading them to fight on stage at an alumni event three years ago in Vancouver.
- TSN counts down to kickoff with coverage of the Grey Cup Kickoff Show, which features a performance by country singer and British Columbia native Dallas Smith and the national anthem by Canadian jazz-pop sensation Nikki Yanofsky. At halftime, TSN airs the Grey Cup Halftime Show featuring 2014 Grammy Award®-winning rock band Imagine Dragons.
