Well, here comes what should be a highly entertaining game in late September, a long time since we've had one of these. Bombers trying to go for win number 8 in a row, Stampeders going for number 10. Obviously it wasn't pretty the last time we played these guys, but since then we got a new QB, switched up the O-line and defense, and it's been a whole new season ever since. We may or may not beat these guys, but I think they'll be in a dog fight in this game up against a better Bombers team than they expect.

I'd love to see the Bombers perform well but I think all the hype about this game is just that, hype, Calgary is, unfortunately for us, a significantly better football team. They are already up 10 - 0 in the first quarter and will in all likelihood win by 30 or more. The big game for Winnipeg is next weekend against Edmonton. If this loss doesn't "destroy" their recent overall success and they can pull out a victory at home against Edmonton it should be an exciting race to the end of the season with back to back games against BC. I really believe next weekend is the Bomber's season.

Back within 10 now, not too bad but unsure about Hall's D getting more stops here.

Wow ..... ughhh well yeah it sucked we couldn't quite close out the W .............. BUUUUTTTTT .....

I am proud of this team though, they fought back from down 24 points, took a punch but showed they aren't going to go down that easily and showed the heart of champions today. Last year or the year before I would not have imagined that to be possible with them. The narrative is changing though and we've now shown that we can compete with the best.


We win this next game against Edmonton, we should be able to clinch a playoff spot.
