Next Year, Bombers.

It was a hard loss for us on Sunday seeing our struggling Blue Bombers crash hard in the 99th Grey Cup.  It wasn’t so much the score of 23-34 in favor of the B.C. Lions but all the emotions that were built up over a season of hoping and dreaming.

Mr. Doug Brown, has by all accounts played his last down of football in this or any other league.  He is the elder statesman of the team in most interviews and one hell of a battler on the defensive line.  For Doug to retire with 11 seasons as a Blue Bomber under his sizable belt without a Grey Cup ring on his finger is a shame.  But that is the vexing thing about pro sports.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers win, next stop the 99th Grey Cup.

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.
