A third fogbowl 

Joining the 1962 CFL Grey Cup Final in Toronto, played between Toronto and Winnipeg, suspended in the fourth quarter and resumed the next day ("The fog was thick enough that fans could not see the action on the field, receivers lost sight of the ball after it left the quarterbacks' hand, and punt returners could not find punts until they hit the ground") and (slightly less appropriately) a 1988 playoff game between Chicago and Philadelphia.

The NZH reports the "reasons" for not postponing the game, and the fact of fans leaving early to go home and get a better view on TV.

50th grey cup in 1965?
Fixed - 50th grey cup in 1962. Geez, it's been going a long time compared to most sports contests.
