Well as you all can expect I am getting a small house full tomorrow for the 99th Grey Cup. My home town Winnipeg Blue Bombers are facing the B.C. Lions in Vancouver.
Blue and Gold Forever!!
So of course it falls to me to cook game day food. What do I have on the menu you may ask. Well lots of things. Lots of things indeed. I actually plan to round out the food groups this year which is something that has been lacking on past years.

I am sitting and defrosting as I write this. Smiling too. As I posted in Blue and Gold forever I am Blue and Gold through and through.
Getting ready for the game!
Today Darlene and I witnessed history in the true sense of the word. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers prevailed over the Hamilton Tigercats by a score of 19 – 3 and won the East Final. Next week will see them in the 99th Grey Cup vs the BC Lions.

East Side rule #1: Come early, stay late, cheer loud!
Now it’s all well and good that Winnipeg won the day, but it is also a bittersweet event that today was the last day that the venerable Winnipeg Stadium will play host to a Blue Bomber game. Today the temperature hit a balmy -10 Celsius and the crowd turned out in full force.

Today marks the playing of the 98th Grey Cup game marking almost 100 years of organized football in Canada. Also lovingly known as the national drunk, it’s a day for the people to celebrate in a uniquely Canadian way.
A Proud Bomber Fan Celebrating a Canadian Tradition
As a country we know that we are barrelling headlong into yet another long bone grippingly cold winter. Yet all across the country people will be shovelling off their lawns pulling out the second hand chesterfields out of the garage and setting up the big screen TV’s to watch the big game alfresco.

Much noise has been made this year about Winnipeg’s home town football team. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have been without a Grey Cup since winning in 1990, yep thats 20 years.
Am I disheartened? Am I ready to throw in the towel and jump on the bandwagon of another team, as the Bombers teeter on the brink of another losing season? Hell NO! You can take your Argo Nation or Rider Pride and shove it up your ass. I bleed Bomber Blue!
