Montreal-West Garbage Bowl Montréal-Ouest

Trashy grid teams had a Bowl
More than 500 people were on hand yesterday to see grown men getting their kicks playing football in green and red underwear In Montreal West.
But having fun wasn’t the only reason behind the game. The 37th annual Garbage Bowl was a chance for area residents to give a few dollars to the Mackay Centre for deaf and crippled children.
Bowl president Graham Caddell said a record $14,000 was collected in garbage cans during the game and related festivities, which included a parade through Montreal West featuring the Garbage Bowl queen, Miss Leftovers, riding on a garbage truck.
Derek Taviss of the Southern Bombers was named the game’s most valuable player after the Bombers threshed the Northern Combines 23-0.

Derek Taviss, judged game’s most valuable player, is doused in beer afterwards.
