Remember this scene? I sure do. Its an image that has been replayed in my mind over and over again. I remember getting the tickets to the game on July 27th, 2007, and hoping that Stegall wouldn't get that TD until I was there. The day had come, and there was Stegall, still one touchdown away from being the all time CFL TD leader. And there I was in the box seats that my dad had scored from an old business friend, watching the game.
I remember with about nine minutes left in the second quarter, Milt Stegall caught a big pass downfield and I thought that was it. Then, with about seven and a half minutes left, he caught the pass at the one. Could this get any closer, I asked myself. Now, I did do some research on those last two, but this one, I will remember forever. Stegall lines up on the left side, and motions across.
The ball is then snapped, and Kevin Glenn throws a one-yard score to Stegall. I remember the stadium roaring so loud, and there I was, goosebumps on my arms, cheering along. I also remember getting a picture with Milt Stegall the next day, being almost the last in line to do so.
Now, what does this have to do with the article name? Well, not only did the Winnipeg Blue Bombers get a much needed win last night over the Toronto Argonauts, and not only was in Retro Night, but Milt Stegall the Touchdown Beagle broke yet another record. There are still more accomplishments for Milt Stegall, but for now, I would like to congratulate him on this great accomplishment.
