Both parts here

At 24 min of the 2nd part they show footage of the CSL's opening game in 1987. I was at that game and all of Ottawa's that season as I had season tickets with my father. In their first season games were actually played in Alymer which is across the river from Ottawa .

I was just going to say that, as I'm watching it live on GolTV now...seems interesting for Canadians wanting to know the inner working of the CSA, CSL and how the CSL died. It's a great documentary to know, narrated by Dale Barnes.

Edit: For you Toronto Ultras, theirs a 5 second pic of "Mama Lynx" on the special :D, showing how the Toronto Lynx couldn't make it in Toronto. Can't believe it's been that long since I last visited Toronto.
