Did you know there is a Grey Cup of Curling that is 2 years older than the CFL Grey Cup?
In 1907 the Governor General Earl Grey presented the curlers of Amherst a Grey Cup for the first Maritime Curling Bonspiel. Two years later, in 1909, he presented the Canadian Rugby Union with a Grey Cup, the same famous trophy that is now used by the Canadian Football League (CFL).
