    Thank you Matt Nichols

    Thank you for being instrumental in leading this team out of a dark place and playing a huge role in leading this team back to glory. I'm completely convinced we would not have developed the culture of success to be a perennial playoff team and winners of the Grey Cup this season without you. Wherever you go from here I will always be a fan of yours and wish you nothing but success (except against the Bombers). Signed, A lifelong Winnipeg Blue Bomber fan

    Dear Retired Blue Bomber Alumni, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your proactive retirement prior to the start of the 2018 season. It set in motion a cascade of Blue Bomber fortuitousness that would rival that of the prettiest sheep at Regina's county fair. For without your ability to assess your own rancid play at quarterback, and having the foresight to understand you would be a massive step backwards for us - even as a backup quarterback, we may never have seen the running prowess of Chris Streveler as QB. If you had not so honorably fallen on your sword and retired as a Winnipeg Blue Bomber, the events set in motion that transpired during our 2019 Grey Cup season may have never come to fruition. Although some may consider your actions towards the Bomber organization malicious, nay - cowardly, I do not see things that way. You deserve every bit of the $70,000 signing bonus you were entitled to, and I want you to rest assured that your actions helped ensure that pride and integrity has been restored to the Bomber organization as a result of their 2019 Grey Cup Championship. To help commend your sacrifice for all that bleed Blue and Gold, I am including a signed bootleg copy of the 2019 Grey Cup game (on DVD), as I feel the game recording itself represents all that you understand is near and dear to the Bombers organization, grit, sportsmanship, a never-retire attitude and class. The copy is a bootleg as it is as phony as your career, personality, and legitimacy as a starting quarterback. It's a DVD because y'know - Saskatchewan (at your request, I can provide a VHS copy if that is preferable). I have also included a slice of humble pie. Sincerely, Eternal Optimist

    Collaros signs 2 year deal

    Just going to go back and delete the posts where I thought he wouldn't play and if he did, he would just get injured. Then, I'll go and erase all the posts where I said he wouldn't re-sign. I really wasn't expecting to have to do a lot of work today. This is going to seriously impact my forum surfing.

    2019 Main Training Camp

    As mentioned, Neufeld and Harris were sitting out today. The first-team offence was : Matthews-Washington-Adams-Demski-Wolitarsky Bryant-Desjarlais-Couture-Gray-Hardrick Nichols at QB, Augustine at RB. I had a tougher time nailing down the second team offence, but it definitely had OIiveira at RB, Streveler at QB, Simonise and Petermann as receivers. Looked like the other receiver spots were Rasheed Bailey, Kenny Lawler, and Tim Wilson but I'm not 100% sure on those ones... I think they might have switched it up a couple times. The OL looked like Speller at centre, Koczwara at guard, and Briggs/Baker on at the tackle spots... couldn't see who else was at guard. I can't give you the defence at the moment, I was locked in on the offence most of the time. Derek Jones was definitely the #1 safety and he is looking slim, trim and healthy. Great to see. One thing I can say for certain is that we are going to be absolutely deadly in the redzone with both Darvin Adams and Chris Matthews. Already some chemistry developing between Nichols and Matthews. Wolitarsky looked great as well, Bauming tweeted out his huge catch to start off the practice. Hardrick grabbed the ball right after and tried to punt it into the crowd but it went straight up instead... that got a big laugh from everyone. Love that guy. I'm interested to see if we can find room for one of Larry Rose III or John Santiago... both looked really quick but they were not getting reps in the first two offence units. Rose III in particular I thought looked pretty dangerous. As expected, Bennett was running with the third team offence but surrendered some reps to McGuire as well. Sawyer Buettner actually got one rep which I was surprised to see. It was an overthrow that almost got picked but good for the kid getting some action in. Should be lots of good competition at returner and the hands team gets a boost with the additions of Chris Matthews and Willie Jefferson... yes Willie Jefferson. 6'6" with receiver experence and he was getting some reps in on specials. The returner competition looked like it involves Charles Nelson, Lucky Whitehead, and John Santiago.... definitely a few other guys back there too but it was hard to see exactly who. Nic Demski is still involved as well. Overall it was very much a "day 1" outing... hard to get a good read on anyone and it's wise not to jump to any conclusions. The starters looked best.... Wolitarsky, Nichols, Matthews, Adams. Augustine looked comfortable at RB and Oliveira is going to have to win that backup job from him... don't see Augustine letting go without a fight. If I had to pick one new receiver who showed well it would be Kenny Lawler... looks like he has pretty good hands and I like his build as well... looks like a pro receiver to me. Nice day for some football. Noticed they have ripped all the seats out in the northeast and southeast corners in the lower bowl. Not sure what that's all about.

    C. Nelson gets things off on the right foot.....with nice kickoff return.... Streveler puts up long sideline pass....Whitehead stops on pass that should of been.... Whitehead has nice punt return. Good wheels..... KR competition..... off to interesting start.... Streveler has no one open.....so barrels down the middle, for big gain.... Harris stuffed on 2nd carry. Harris needs to leave this game soon. Pass pro for the Blue.....could be better Medlock pounds 47 yd FG Kligore competing some balls for the Esks.... Esks DB's providing some tight coverage..... Some nice ST work by Mike Jones...... Alexander, Fenner and Sayles show good closing speed in the back.... Bomber's vanilla D, getting poked a bit, here Fenner stuffs hitch pass in the red zone Stafford hooked on way to endzone.....officials miss the call.... So, Maas challenges it and gets the reversal. Ball on the 1. But, Esk QB fumbles the sneak....Wingman Jefferson recovers... Streveler finally gets completion, then a end run for 17... Medlock hitting some nice punts.... M. Jones beaten badly on play action, but breaks up under-throw.... Jones then knocks ball loose from receiver on 2nd down Jones then goes back.... to return the punt for 15 Busy series for Mr. Jones. Bennett in at QB...hits Lawler twice....and both incomplete Medlock drills 45 yd FG...makes it look pretty easy Mike Jones keeping busy ......with another ST tackle Bennett looking pretty good in the pocket Too many drops by the heralded Bomber R group, so far Bomber pass pro looking better, this quarter The soon to be cut Jake Thomas....gets a sack Nice punt catch and return by Nelson.. McGuire draws in at QB B. Oliveira's first carry is a nice 15 yards up the gut McGuire makes a couple of nice throws Thed The Hansen... strikes a blow on ST's.... Mike Jones having a good nite...... ...until he lets punt bounce, then fumbles return.... ...om Bomber 12. With 18 seconds left in half... But, Jeffcoat knocks down 2nd down pass..... Esks settle for 19 yd FG....to close out the half. Nick Temple makes nice tackle on screen play.... Bombers take back to back penalties..... ...then Esks take them back to back to back.... Typical X game stuff....indeed.... Less vanilla and more pressure from Blue D. Santiago first carry for 5. Petermann grabs 2 in a row.... Bennett completes to Walker and Hazel Looking better as he goes along Whitehead runs PR back and forth 30 yards.... ...for a net gain of 5. A. McCalister trucks an OL and gets big sack.... ...forcing a conceded Esks safety. Bombers up 10-3 Larry Rose gets into the return act with a nice KR... Esks take an IC, then offside penalty... to keep a drive alive.. Gabriel Amaavizca Ortiz makes them pay with 36 yd field goal Germans? Mexicans? What's next? Esk KR busts open ensuing kickoff....and is going for 6... ...but run down on good hustle play by Dylan Schrot.... Hansen continuing to strike blows for the Fatherland, on ST's.... As Bombers take another step towards world domination.... Edmonton drives into the red zone..... ....but 2 receivers can't hold on to the ball in the endzone Turnover on downs, Bomber ball. Some igloo dude goes a mile offside... then roughs the QB. That will look even worse on film.... McGuire looking pretty good....but drops and sack holding him back.... Steven Richardson sacks O'Brian Esks take their 3rd time count violation on punt plays.... Another good punt return by Nelson....shifty and quick..... GAO does not have a lot of pop, in his punting leg... If you are a fan of punting....this one's for you.. Jones lets another punt fall in front of him...but pretty good return.... Bombers running the 3rd stringers on OL...tough sledding for the backs. Lucky W. finding out that it is not that easy, taking the corner in the CFL... Last 3 minutes with bench guys and cannon fodder galore... Clock stopped. Too bad. Bennett throws deep to Schrot.....who turns the wrong way.... ...then the right way, juggles the ball and holds it to finish 50 TD play. Bomber bench erupts, and Schrot is literally carried off the field.... ....to complete a unforgettable first catch of his career. 20-3 Moes in 3 down mode....Maas calls a timeout with 1:10 left .....thanks. Home game #490 is in the books.... Gin #whatever is in the glass....

    Unreal start to the weekend at Spirit Of Edmonton... Got to hang out with James West and his wife. Good booze and good tunes. TiCat morons went up and hugged The Cup when it was brought in for pics... BAD KARMA. We got our pic taken but wouldn't dare touch it. One other cool thing: You know The Traveling Jagrs? There's a crew of Traveling Glenn's! A bunch of guys who all have Kevin Glenn jerseys from the various teams he played for. So they all got a picture taken together and as they're separating I see...... KEVIN GLENN.... he came to SOE and got his picture taken with the Traveling Glenn's! Too awesome. Great ****** night....

    Pregame talk: Bombing the Hammer

    Don’t know where to put this, but I went and watched Wolitarsky’s set at Earl’s tonight. First off, he was actually super good. Second, him and Streveler were super stoked that my buddy Ray and I had their jerseys. Thirdly, Matthews was there and looked very unstabbed. Good turnout - Strev, Demski, Willie, Stove (played a couple songs), Lawler, Sayles, Humes, Speller, Lucky, Rose, Nelson (walking boot) and Petermann all showed to support.

    Congrats Blue

    Some folks here have known me nigh upon 15 years. During this time we've had our wars and a fair number of laughs. But I am genuinely happy for you today. There are many posters here who never got to experience a championship and I hope you enjoy the hell out of it. Obviously I'm thrilled that Hamilton didn't win... the few thousand of them who come to BMO to watch their games are pretty insufferable as it is... but if they could actually win? It would almost be too much to bear. THANK YOU OSH for sparing us that fate. There are things that you (Bomber fans) and I (a Prophet of Double Blue) will disagree on sooner than later (and you can likely imagine what specific thing I refer to)... but we will save that for another day while you bask in your Glory and I bask in my Relief.

    Thank you Matt Nichols

    I remember 2016 very well... the team was 1-4 (or about to be)... we were sitting in IGF and I said to my lifelong friend/fellow season ticket holder " I might be done, if this season continues like this, I don't think I'm coming back next year"... this was our 13th season has season ticket holders.... The next game in Edmonton, Matt Nichols was named as the starter over Drew Willy... a couple other changes were made too... Loffler started at S, Bond was moved to G and Hardrick at RT... and that started something different... that was the first day that the team became competitive and we finally saw the results of that last November... Long story short... without Matt Nichols I am confident that Mike O'Shea and Kyle Walters would no longer be employed by the Bombers and we would not have seen the drought end in November... for that, all Bombers fans owe Nichols a huge amount of gratitude... some people did not love Matt's play over the past 12-18 months... which is fair... but you can't deny that he was one of the major reasons this team is where it is today. Thank you Matt Nichols... all the best in the future...

    I wasn't the most popular kid in elementary, middle years and junior high. Football, and the Bombers were one of the few things the gave me joy. I broke my wrist in 2000. My mom got me season tickets as a "pick me up" because my summer was essentially ruined. I had them for 8 years before moving temporarily. I was in grade 9 in 2001. I cried when they lost. 2002 - We lose Milt on the last game of the season. We lose Charles Roberts on the first play of the west final. 2003 - No Milt for the playoffs again. Kenton Keith runs the ball down our throat. You can see times are changing. 2004 - Lyle Bauer does his first sabotage job canning Dave Ritchie 2007 - I fully maintain given we lost by 3 points, with Ryan Dinwiddie throwing 3 picks, that we beat the piss out of the Riders if we had Kevin Glenn that game. End of 2008 - Lyle Bauer sabotage job 2 The next few years, ugly as a whole, even if we did somehow make it to the dance in 2011. Slowly got better under Walters...even if there were bumps along the way. Etch a Sketch defence. Kuale. Choking in the west semi against BC. Continuing to be owned by Calgary. Not able to get over the hump. But finally. It's over. And more tears were shed last night. And all of the dumbfounding decisions of era's past, and heartbreaking losses don't matter. Beautiful.

Some more big time work by Bomber cover teams....gunners galore... Bighill still missing couple of tackles today..... Marshall throws sneak punch at somebody downfield. Idiot.

    Bomber News: 2019 Off Season

    TIDBITS - CJOB Special. (Shorthand version) Walters Moving on from Dressler Flanders - want more return ability - will see. Matthews - he’s focused on NFL, but ‘could’ end up here. O’Shea - regrets losing ‘good’ people, football and otherwise. Jefferson will fit right in. Intrigued to see him play. Ultra competitive West. Negotiations- players will work hard to get what they want. Better partnership and communication now. Couture ready? Yes. Gray will compete. No doubt OL can be as good. TC will determine who’s who and where they play. Streveler- expand his roll..still Matt’s team. Augustine - will have to work on ST & protection. Will be competition 2 spots open on Rec. Petermann & Simonize - both improved. Knox to Wilson. Wilson was slated for MLB. Mexican player in camp? Looking at it. Globalization- to improve revenue streams. Likes the big thinking. Nichols knee injury? Into good training. No knee concerns. Wants to be more consistent. Harris - doesn’t know where the money’s coming from when asked of teams signing Free Agents. Brown & Tait - negotiations? Brown brings up a fund for injuries. Tait - guranteed contracts? No go. Pie is too small. Sask. - Tait says it all depends on Collaros...otherwise - yeesh Brown says they’re going to be terrible and hopes they’re terrible.

    2019 GREY CUP CHAMPIONS!!!

    You can’t win a Grey Cup with Ritchie Hall. You can’t win a Grey Cup with Paul Lapolice. You can’t win a Grey Cup a cup with Mike O’Shea . You can’t win a Grey Cup with out a passing attack, heard that a lot around here the past few years. Looks like you can!!!!!

    Willie J. hits Arbuckle's arm to force a punt Grant, Janarion....has pretty good first punt return Nichols completes couple of short passes to Whitehead... Harris skips round the corner for 17.... Nichols has room to scramble up the middle, hook slides 3 yards short. Some rumbles from the stands, as Medlock makes 27 yd FG Bombers trying to mix up some fronts on D Janarion Grant finds a middle crease on a punt return..... ....gets the sideline and motors the rest of the way. 80 yd TD. Hecht gasses tackle at the hash mark, huge gain for Stamps Arbuckle finds receiver wide open at Blue 15.... Then he gets middle pressure, but breaks contain round the end.... .....all the way to the endzone. 10-7 Bombers D not looking good on that drive...poor tackling and coverage.... Lawler grabs ball behind him up the middle, despite getting helicoptered. Ar Buckle sees blitz (Hecht) coming and beats it easily into the flat for 15 ...followed by mid range completion on the sideline...and a FD swing pass.. Sayles jostling with Rogers in the end zone...draws PI call. Ball on 1. OB sneak for the TD.....10 point lead evaporated......14-10 Stamps Nichols hits Matthews up the middle for 20...then Wolt for another FD. Matt appears to drop ball right into corner of endzone for Woltman... But ruled incomplete.....Harris gets first down on swing pass... ....another screen to Harris snuffed out on 2nd down. Medlock FG. Jefferson flushes AB out....Roh with the tackle.... Mr. J. Grant has nice punt return up the middle and gets Blue out of hole... Harris hit in backfield on 2nd and 2.....poor Medlock punt and no yards call Bighill blitzs and forces incomplete on 2nd down.. Lord Janarion takes the punt, starts right, reverses to the left..... .... turns the corner again....down the sideline, 75 yards for the touchdown. Going out on a limb.....this guy will be doing the returns, next week... Sayles makes tackle on crossing route....to force punt... Grant fumbles the kick...ball bounces down to the Bomber 22. Stamps ball. Arbuckle has wide open guy in endzone behind Hecht...but hits the upright... NA then lofts sideline pass to Rogers...down to the 5, with halftime looming... Sayles plays jump ball with Rogers in the endzone...comes down with huge INT. Nichols starts 2nd half, with his longest completion of the day, 30 to Lawler.. Bryant holding penalty kills drive, takes away the field goal.... MOS has other thoughts, and sends Medlock to try from 56.... ...and he nails it! 23-14 for the Bombers..... Nevis having good game against the run (as usual) Some of Hecht's physical limitations beginning to show, lately.... Sayles comes in blindside and sacks Mr. Arbuckle.... Lucky takes reverse sweep...bobs and weaves for 20... Streveler on 3nd and a couple of feet...strings it outside and is stopped... At least a 3 point turnover...this O has no finish, tonight. Sayles another nice tackle, Maston knocks down pass... Bomber D has tightened up, since that 2nd quarter... Grant, who looks like a weapon...has a good punt return wiped out by holding... Bombers ahead....but still too many "mental errors" tonight on both sides of the ball... Harris gets clobbered on a hitch pass....Demski close to the marker Streveler pounds 3rd and 1, right up the middle...this time.... Harris catches another dump pass....Nichols pressured and throws up.... ...yes, another dump to Harris. 3rd and 1.5 Streveler in..... ....who goes up the middle again, like a good boy and converts... 2nd and 3 delay pitch to Harris - stuffed. Too cute by half. Bombers eating up clock...but struggling to maintain drives... Williams breaks 2 tackles for a first down, Ambles avoids 2 more for another Bighill still does not look quite right out there..... D. Jones blitz forces 2nd down incomplete......Stamp 47 yd FG. 23-17 Harris run and check down for FD. Matthews open down sideline, can't hold on.. Nichols pressured and dumps ball off again (rumbling from stands) short of marker Stamps punt returner runs into his own guy, then Hallett....fumble - Hallett recovers 2 Harris runs for a first down, then wiggles down to the 3 yard line. Nichols runs QB draw, but runs it like a sundial and is tackled on the 2. ....the lack of finish by this O tonight is glaring... Medlock puts it through. Bombers 26-17. Arbuckle hit by 4 Bombers on 2nd down. 3rd down pass overthrown! ...but Sayles gets call for IC. Some real stinger penalties tonight.... Williams takes screen down to Blue 23 with 3:10 left AB reads blitz (again) Williams wide open in flat to the 11. Rogers wins jump ball with Gaitor, avoids another tackler...dives into endzone. Extra point makes it 26-24. Game starting to look like an Argo replay.... Bombers desperately need to get some first downs on O. Harris runs for 2 (boos from the stands) Nichols throws pass behind Woltman (quite a few more boos) Stamps return kick to their 45. Just need FG to win. 2nd down pass bounces off receiver hands, right up into the air..... Who else? Rose is waiting underneath it, to collect another INT. Harris runs for 7.... Streveler pounds up the gut for huge first down... Harris busts off tackle close to marker, and over 100.... Andrew and the Calgary bench then discuss the weather, I think... Streveler dives over for the clinching FD. Time for victory formation. Bombers break losing streak, have series edge on Stamps and Moes Not an artistic triumph...but alone in first place eases the pain Not a fancy glass.....but the contents do likewise..

    Some Truth to the Rumour

    There’s a bad cop now and then. But most are great people, hard working, in a very stressful job. They make good neighbours. I’d rather support the fuzz than degrade them.

    Disappointing looking crowd... Esks take 2 penalties on first 2 series.... Nichols has time, but can't pull trigger - sacked.... Medlock's tricky sidewinder punt...pins Moes deep.... Gable doing some tough running.... Long underneath throw, that Matthews jumps up...awarded catch.. ...but Speller holding penalty wipes that out. 2nd and 20..Nichols throws it away, but dump rough call on Esks.. Edmonton takes PI...5th penalty in the first 7 minutes... Good thing Maas cleaned up that stuff from last year....... Demski takes innocent looking sweep play.... ...and bobs and weaves 35 yards with it.... Next play, Esks dig in for Harris...but Demski plunges it in T. Harris converts some first downs...throwing ball well ...then scrambles away, and hits 20 yd pass.... Kyrie Wilson is FAST.....comes downhill like a cannon shot.... Blue pass rush comes alive.....Edm kicks FG. 7-3 Nichols steps back and bombs it out to Whitehead on the stop'n go ....who takes it down the sideline to complete 75 yard touchdown... Bomber kick coverage looking very good..... Nevis gets in a big pop on a screen pass. End of 1st....14-3 Bombers. Lapo gets too cute on 2nd and short....Lucky loses yards on reverse.... Another nice punt from Medlock...another Esks penalty.... Gable slashes on back to back runs for 30, then pounds for another first down. T. Harris hits sideline pass to set up 3rd and 1 at Bomber 35.... Gable takes stupid shotgun hand off....and 3 Bombers stop him cold. Nichols hangs on to ball too long....sacked again. Medlock shanks punt......ball on Bomber 50. T. Harris scrambles for FD, then beats blitz with hot slant to the 12. Roh knocks down 2nd down pass....Moes settle for FG Harris fumbles...Esks get ball at Blue 30... Some Bomber mistakes, beginning to pile up here.... Harris has all day to throw....hits a pass to the Bomber 8 Flat pass to the 3...but Gable dragged down for no gain.... Esks settle again for the 3. 14-9 Bombers Some pretty errant throws from Nichols, this quarter Time of possession and yards piling up for Edmonton Olivera goes down....cart comes on....not looking too good Nichols overthrows wide open Matthews, ball tipped and picked off T. Harris has plenty of time, again...for 20 yard pass... Looks like Fenner is the preferred target for tonight.... Harris finally sacked by Jeffcoat....45 yd FG, last play of half 14-12 Bombers just kinda hanging on here.... 2nd half...good return by Nelson...FD's from Lucky and Harris Nichols goes to Adams long down the middle....obvious PI. ...but no call.. that just has to be challenged. MOS complies.... Yup, PI alright...1st down on the 5. Nichols finds Harris in end zone. Bombers still having trouble wrapping up Gable. Hecht misses tackle on 2nd down Edmonton OG's are holding like crazy...and getting away with it. Esks just keep boning themselves with penalties.... Both teams now really slowing down on O... Esks FINALLY take a holding call...Blue D starting to pick it up Jeffcoat is having a pretty good game... Another nice punt return from Nelson.....quick and shifty... Hitch pass to Lucky.... gets the corner...flies up the sideline... ...cuts back to the middle...simply outruns everyone, into pay dirt... 40 yard TD. Speed kills. Great coming out party for Whitehead... S. Richardson getting held quite a lot....guy is a bull..... Hecht forces fumble with big hit....but the Moes recover... Another nice Medlock punt. Another Esks penalty. Nichols under throws Matthews for a pick...except it is dropped.... Fenner gets PI....his night is just not going well..... Jeffcoat still coming.....sacks Harris....but D holding kills that.... Collins takes short pass....dekes Bighill for good gain.... Bombers amp up pressure on Harris again. White FG again. Esks go into a 3 man rush. Blue O respond with another 2 and out... Mike Miller doing fine work on ST's tonight..... Gable pounds out a couple of first downs...one guy not tackling him. Harris finds Gable for another FD. White comes on for another FG.. 28-18 Nichols misses Adams. This O having problems closing the deal.. Adams and Woltman have combined for exactly 0 catches... Rios takes a dumb roughing penalty on the sidelines. 3:00 to go. Gable stuffed by Jeffcoat and Bighill. Stafford converts 3rd and 2 pass.... Nevis having a fine game, in the middle.... Alexander misses tackle on Ellington...ball down to Bomber 25... Maas decides to save clock....and kick 7th FG 28-21 1:57 left. Harris loses 4 yards, then Nichols runs 5 and hook slides.... A generous amount of boos...wafting down from the stands.... Esks start at Bomber 50. Smith flat out drops 2nd down pass... 3rd and 4. Ellington jumps up for it on the sidelines....Sayles knockdown. That should do it...Bombers running out the clock...and Harris FUMBLES! Esks get it back at the 50, with 33 seconds left.. Rios knocks down 1st pass. 2nd down pass incomplete... 3rd down play....Fenner all over receiver. Ball incomplete. game now over. Esks O put up some good numbers and great TOP. .... But, like golf....you drive for show...and putt for dough. No TD's. 7 FG's Bomber O put up mediocre numbers.....but hit end zone 4 times... Worse things... than losing the numbers game..and winning football games 2 and 0. But need work closing out games....for the sake of my liver... Fortunately...its all as good as gin.

    Thank you Matt Nichols

    can never say enough good things about Matt Nichols the QB and Matt Nichols the person. On and off the field, he was a fantastic Bomber and Manitoban. Sad to see him go, and hope he has several years of success in football yet!

    2019 GREY CUP CHAMPIONS!!!

    Don't post much here, but would like to share a few things about what tonight's Blue Bomber Grey Cup victory meant to me, if that's ok. Some info to put it into context... - had a car accident in January. No one was hurt, and 0% my fault, but my car was written off. Had to buy lower quality vehicle with the settlement. - spent nearly two weeks in the hospital with a nasty leg infection. - engine blew out on my above-mentioned new (used) car. Ended up S.O.L. on that one. - got another new car and got into another accident less than two months later. No one was hurt, but I will admit to being at fault for that one. Just a brain fart on my part. My bad. Had to buy another car. - my mom, who let me move in with her 16 years ago, when my divorce cleaned me out, is moving into a nursing home at the end of this month, i.e. the end of this week (cue jokes re: grown man living with his mom, not to worry, no offence will be taken). What with the packing, searching for a place to live, plus the arranging of two moves, plus searching for three new (used) cars in one year, a hospital stay, and this being the last Grey Cup we'll watch under this roof, and all that upheaval and stress of this whole ***ing year... well, my mom and I had a good cry (good tears!) and a good hug and we both let out a loud WHOOP! when Zach took that knee at the end of the 4th quarter! Anyways... Cheering for a sports team may seem meaningless in the grand scheme of things, but, at least for me and my mom and my brother and sister and their spouses (all of us life-long Blue Bomber fans), tonight, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers winning the 2019 Grey Cup means... well... everything. I love the Blue & Gold, win or lose, but needless to say, I❤my Winnipeg Blue Bombers now more than ever! Congratulations to the 2019 Grey Cup Champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers! What an amazing game! Congrats to Andrew Harris! And thank you!🏈🤗❤ Having said that, as Tyrone Jones, James "Wild Wild" West and the rest of the Blue Bombers once said back in the day... WHO GOT 'DA CUP? WE GOT 'DA CUP !!! Thanks for indulging my rant. Smiling now like I haven't in a long time! 😁👍🏈

    13 points given up per game in the playoffs. 5+ takeaways per game. At least one critical turnover on downs in each game. 2x in the Grey Cup!

    A Thank You and Shout Out...

    I just wanted to take a moment to say 'thank you' to Rich and all of the members of MBB for allowing us interlopers a place to come and talk about our Bombers since TEP being down. For us avid Bomber fans, the TEP couldn't have went down at a worse time, during playoffs... it was/is nice to have a place to come to and share our thoughts and participate in the conversation without being made to feel un-welcomed or reminded that we are merely quests at someone else's house.. Hopefully we've reciprocated the hospitality by adding to the conversation and provided additional insight to the going on's within the game and the Bombers in general... hopefully we will continue to do so once the TEP is back up, if it's back up... So again, thanks you to MBB, Rich, and the MBB members for accepting us and allowing us to continue to be part of the conversation, much appreciated!

    To be fair to Ed he was able to suit up and toughed it out yesterday while playing with two broken ankles courtesy of Johnny Augustine last week. He's a warrior.

    My mom went into the bomber store years ago to buy me a jersey and Moreno was in there. She met him and said he was a good looking fella so she bought me his jersey. So pretty much I got his jersey because my mom had the hots for him.
