It took twelve years but the Blue Bombers finally broke the Labour Day Classic curse. They pulled out a 28-25 win over the pathetic Riders. The Riders are terrible and pitiful this year. They now stand at 1 win and 8 losses. The Bombers move up to 6 and 4 riding a 5 game winning streak. The two teams meet for a rematch next week back in Winnipeg.

The game always brings some hardcore bomber fans to Regina
Some Saskatchewan stubble-jumper took time off combining wheat to put on his green bozo wig and get the wife to paint him up real good.

Roughriders head coach Chris Jones looks like a hitman for the Chicago Mob
If anybody noticed, I do not have any love lost with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and their fans.
