(highlights of game start at about 8:40 into it) (if there was already a link to it earlier in this thread, I can't find it now)

I saw this while looking for images or videos of the early 1980s white Canada jersey I thought resembled the one TFC unveiled yesterday.
It reminds me of how bad that old artificial turf was -- really more like a thin green carpet on concrete. Even in this blurry video you can easily see the giant seam where they put the outfield fence for baseball.
I assume the only reason it was played there at all was that the Blizzard had their home games there at that time before they moved back to Varsity Stadium. Fortunately I think that was the only WC qualifying game at the old Exhibition Stadium.
