This weekend's Grey Cup game is very special for one well-known Calgarian.

Former Lieutenant Govenor Norman Kwong was an 18-year-old fullback for the Stampeders when he headed to Toronto for the Grey Cup in 1948.

Kwong says the pressure was on, as the team headed into the championship.

"Undefeated, unbeaten team...a real revelation for a western team to go down east and be regarded that way even though the east never thought much of the west and never gave us our recognition until after that game," Kwong said.
