On the Menu: Lions vs. Bombers – Grey Cup 99

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.

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

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.

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.

I appologize for the lack of rants.

Mmmmm. Hi my name is Bob and I am a rageaholic.  I like to rant and rave about the smallest thing.

So I have to be honest with you one and all about my lack of substantive rants these weeks past.  Really I have nothing to bitch and whine about.

I have it pretty good in fact, I live with a great gal who loves me about 80% of the time, and for a woman loving a man that’s pretty damn good. I have a solid roof over my head for the most part.  Meaning that I would love to take the person or persons that added to this house and fucked it up so soundly into the back yard and beat them with a rubber hose for a couple of straight hours.  But other than that things are good.

I really don’t want for much, sure the sex could be more plentiful but who in my shoes doesn’t wish for the same thing.

Dar really is a doll, most days.  Hell she makes my lunch most of the time so I can’t bitch about her.

On the sports front things are looking up too.  The Jets are coming back in a huge way and believe it or not the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are setting records again. We are an astounding 6 -1 in the first half of the season, a mark that hasn’t been hit since the early 80’s around here.

So what do I have to be mad about?   Well the economy could be doing better, but I have a good job building aircraft and Dar is a whiz with the numbers so things on that front are peachy fucking keen.

I wish I could see my daughter more, I would love to take her fishing or really even shopping on daddy’s dime.  I do miss her a great deal.

Well that’s my rant for today people, I love you all.
Sorry for not being snarly or in a knot.

Sometimes life is just good.

Take care.

Blue and Gold Forever!

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!
