Bombers Win Banjo Bowl

WINNIPEG - I said to expect a bigger Winnipeg Blue Bomber victory than in the 2019 Banjo Bowl, and I was close. At a sold out IG Field, the Bombers made it two in a row over the Saskatchewan Roughriders with a 33-9 win. With back-to-back wins over the Riders, Winnipeg improved to 5-1 on…

Banjo Bowl Today!

WINNIPEG - For the first time in 16 years, I won’t be in my seat for the annual Banjo Bowl. Work commitments have taken me out of province and quite frankly, unless I stream it on my phone or iPad, I’m not sure I’ll be able to watch it. That’s because I’m in Southern Ontario,…

Winnipeg's Bombers Dump Riders

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers excised the demons of Labour Days past, with a big 23-8 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders, winning the Labour Day Classic for the first time since 2016, and only for the second time in the last 16 years.

Labour Day Classic On Sunday

WINNIPEG - The annual Labour Day Classic held in Regina has always had a place in my life. My earliest memory was watching the game with my friends in my parents basement in 1980 while my Mom and Dad went away for the long weekend…I thought they would be gone until the Monday. Surrounded by…

Bombers Edge Stamps In Winnipeg

Calgary’s usual clutch kicker Rene Paredes…

Winnipeg's Andrew Harris Expected To Start for Bombers

WINNIPEG - Nobody expected the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to go 14-0 during the regular season. However, no one expected the Bombers to lose to the Toronto Argonauts last week in embarrassing fashion either. Winnipeg has a chance to regroup against the “shell of their former selves” Calgary Stampeders tonight at IG Field. The Stamps sit…

Winnipeg Blue Bombers Lose First Game

WINNIPEG - CJOB’s Bob Irving called it sloppy. He was being nice. Yesterday, at a near empty BMO Field, the Toronto Argonauts handed the Winnipeg Blue Bombers their first defeat since October 19th, 2019 with a 30-23 win. The score actually flattered the Bombers as they were only able to generate 236 yards of offense…

Bombers Dump Argos

WINNIPEG - Plan the parade! The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are a perfect 2-0 on the 2021 season after last night’s 20-7 victory over the Toronto Argonauts in front of 22,143 fans at IG Field. Quarterback Zack Collaros was 32-of-40 for 292 yards with two TDs and one interception. Collaros combined with Rasheed Bailey for his…

Bombers Host Argos In Winnipeg Tonight

WINNIPEG - This one shouldn’t be close. Sure, the last time Toronto and Winnipeg played against each other, the Argos rallied from a 20-0 deficit at BMO Field to beat the Bombers 28-27. However, prior to that, at IG Field in July of 2019, the Blue and Gold hammered the Double Blue 48-21. And there’s…

Great Week For Winnipeg Sports

Wade Miller and his team did a fabulous job in…

Cat Stops MLB Game

WINNIPEG - A cat provided some extra entertainment at a recent Yankees game. The crowd cheered Monday night in the eighth inning when the cat darted out onto the warning track with crew members chasing it.

Memories of Home Openers

WINNIPEG - It’ll be 620 days between games for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers when they return to IG Field this Thursday to play Hamilton and raise their 2019 Grey Cup banner won in convincing fashion 33-12 over the Tiger-Cats.

Blue Bombers Are Back!

WINNIPEG - 621 days. That’s how long it’s been since the Winnipeg Blue Bombers captured the Grey Cup on November 24th, 2019. A lot has changed and while it may feel a little different tonight at IG Field, I expect all the emotion of that Sunday in Calgary to come back the moment I set…

Goldeyes Return Home

Fired Up About The Fish

MLB's All-Star Uniforms Suck

WINNIPEG - If you watched Major League Baseball's All-Star Game on TV the other night, you saw the players' new uniforms. Reaction on social media has been overwhelmingly negative. One critic said the uniforms looked more like jumpsuits or pajamas. Some MLB players got in on the criticism too. Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Brett Anderson tweeted,…
