A tense moment on the Blue Bomber bench with quarterback "Indian" Jack Jacobs & Head Coach George Trafton at Osborne Stadium in 1953.

Wish I had seen him play. 

I only saw footage of him play but man could he throw. I heard a story about an official that didn't like him for some reason and in a game against Regina he threw a long bomb for a touchdown but the official wiped the play out with some bogus call. Next play, same thing, long bomb for a TD. The official would have been too obvious if he had thrown another flag so the TD stood. Just a great player.

Ben Hatskin owned a race car in the 1950's. So did my father. They competed against one another for a few years. Both my Dad & Hatskin hired professional drivers. It was just before my time from about 1951-54. I heard it was a lot of fun but time consuming & expensive as the car was always being worked on between races. Too bad I missed it.

It wasn't meant to be funny, Source.  The guy was a warrior.  I don't post any photos so players can be made fun of or mocked.

Blue Bomber Offensive Tackle Bill Frank. He played for the Bombers from 1969-74. A multiple CFL All Star & All Canadian, he protected the blind side of qbs Wally Gabler, Benji Dial, Don Jonas, Ron Johnson, Chuck Ealey & Dieter Brock. Just a personal observation as I saw both players in action but he & Chris Walby are the two greatest left tackles to ever put on a Bomber jersey.

Wide Receiver Geroy Simon as a Blue Bomber. Drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1999, he joined the Bombers the same year & played through the 2000 season when he joined the BC Lions where he became the CFL's all time leading receiver.
