I am the road griller, pretty famous already.  People say I am really smart, extremely funny and one of the nicest looking humans they have ever laid their eyes on.  Started being a fan in the mid 70's when I would listen to the games with my Dad in the backyard on the radio.  40+ years.

I enjoy short walks on the beach, not cuddling and talking about myself.
lol possibly best intro EVER. This is great!!

Hello my fellow loyal Fans,

I became a Winnipeg Blue Bomber fan in my last year of high school 1991 when A friend had an extra ticket to a game.  From that moment on I have bled blue and gold . I have been blessed is seeing and  experiencing some amazing games over the years with and many amazing football plays and players. Only thing I have never experienced standing at Portage and Main in November, despite being so close. I am so excited for the upcoming season. A beer in hand and the sound of the fireworks going off as our 2017 takes the field for the first time is all ways  magical. Looking forward to a great season and standing at the corner of Portage and Main with my fellow blue fans.

Go Blue

Hi All,

I'm a native San Diegan, now without a football team to call my own. I have been a loyal and long-suffering Chargers fan for 52 years. During that span, I have seen the NFL become purely a corporate enterprise, with no loyalty to the fans. So I am done with the NFL. I've settled on the Bombers as my adopted team, and listened to the Saskatchewan game on CJOB. I am looking forward to getting to know some folks here, and hope to make it to at least one Bombers game this season. After one game, I'm already loving the CFL.

Thanks for the welcome. That story was written about another Chargers fan and his son. I would imagine there are quite a few of us wandering around out there, trying to find our way to a new football home. I believe I have found mine.

Recommend if you do plan to catch a game...come up to the Banjo Bowl on September 9th (Saturday).  Always a fun weekend and and a chance to mingle with fans and players.  More details will come out closer to that time.

Long time lurker, first time poster.

21 year old Bomber fan born and raised in Winnipeg, going to games since I was 5. Still a student so I don't have seasons yet, but I'm usually in 140 or 141.

Cheers

Welcome.  I am a Canadian and graduate from an SEC school.  The Canadian game is quite exciting and pass happy.  It is a very different game than the NFL.  The one thing you can count on is that the team is not going anywhere.  I undertand that many games are on TV in the US.  I was in the US this weekend and the Hamilton v Saskatchewan game was on.  Also there are some streaming options.  CJOB does a very good job and is arguably more exciting that the TV commentators.  I know many people that watch the game and listen to CJOB.

Became a STH when I moved to Winnipeg in 1970 and held them till 2014.  Was able to attend only a few games in 2015 and 2016, and that was hard, but glad to say, I'm back in the saddle again this year.
In my mid seventies I continue to follow everything Blue as avidly as ever. Really enjoy following the thoughts of other posters, especially those who stick to the topic!!

The first football game I ever saw was the exciting Bomber Grey Cup overtime victory in 1961 on my aunt's black and white TV
when I was 6 yrs old. I grew up in rural Manitoba so just listened to the games
on radio with my older brother. We memorized the height, weight and age of players, made football
scrapbooks and charted many of the games on sheets of foolscap which we taped together. I ate Post cereals
which I hated just so we could get the different CFL cards on the back of the cereal boxes.

I saw my first live game when I moved to Winnipeg in the early 70's to attend the U of M where I played
flag football and hockey.

I love sports of all kinds, but my favourite is CFL football.

Oh, and btw, I'm a woman.
