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!

The word nation conjures up many different ideas and emotions depending on the context you use it in. For example I am a Canadian, Canada is the nation in which I live. Canadians by in large tend to be pretty ambivalent about nationhood, we are proud but not so much that we feel the need to constantly thump our chests and yell it to whom ever is listening.
There are other more closely held affiliations that consider themselves nations, take for example the Aryan Nation, or the Nation of Islam. Both of these groups consider themselves nations based on an ideology. I can proudly say that I am not a member of either of those nations. Much too demanding and pigeonholed in their world view for my liking.
Tonight I had the chance to eat single, as I often do when presented with a chance to head out I leave any preconceptions at home and set out with an empty stomach. Tonight I was definitely not disappointed.
Having snaked through the afternoon watching football a little bite was all I needed to set things right after watching my Blue Bombers lose in a tightly fought defensive battle vs the Saskatchewan Rough Riders in the Labour Day Classic.
A nibble in mind perhaps a salad I thought, then as I drove it dawned on me that I had wanted to try a new Tapas bar down in The Village. Tapas for those of you who are uninitiated are normally a shared food experience. Drinks, and many little dishes to share with friends. It’s a Spanish cultural thing, bites of cured meats or plates of grilled sliced meats and fish.
