The Winnipeg Rugby Football Club was founded on June 10, 1930. The team was known as the "Winnipegs" until Vince Leah dubbed them the "Blue Bombers of western football" in 1935. And the rest is history!

On July 5, 1986 @Wpg_BlueBombers set a #CFL record for largest shutout 56-0 vs @sskroughriders
For some reason @GlenSuitor recalls this game as a Labour Day re-match
#Riders best scoring chance was a 48 yard FG attempt by Dave Ridgway - it came up short. I blame the holder 😉

@Wpg_BlueBombers suspended operations for the duration of WWII. A new RCAF mandate prevented civilian men from playing with service men.
