Tony's Memory: Meeting Wally Buono


This memory was shared by a fan.

I was at the Ice Bowl in 1977. It was a lifetime memory.

At the 106th Grey Cup in Edmonton myself and a friend were walking through the lobby of the Sutton Place and Hotel and we see Wally Buono. He played Linebacker and punted for the Als back in 77. He was telling us about living in Brossard and of course about the ice bowl.

He mentioned the 67,000 people in attendance and I told him I was one of them. What a treat to talk to Wally and what a nice gentleman.
