    'You belong here' is next year's festival motto.

    Specifically designed to bring Bronko out of his plop cave.

    And in other news today, The WAD came out of his orifice (thats a small hole) and announced that the massive roof leaks in the new digs hasn't been resolved, BUT, either the building insurance, or, the designer, OR, the builder, OR, the designers insurance, OR, the builders insurance, OR, a few of the above, are probably, or almost certainly, going to pay for the fix in the foreseeable future, probably. Or not.
    Now thats Leadership.

    Coach MOS said "just don't blame it on my Coaches".
    GM Kyle Walters said" c,mon, it was a NI roofer, with all the scouting we had we see this roofer as a big part of our future"".
    Nasty Nate had no comment.

    51 weeks to go. Reserving my one way ticket to Winnipeg today and my return flight Wednesday. About 630$ overall with air canada.

    Hotels are about halfway between the airport and the stadium which are 15 km apart.

    Any suggestions will be welcome from our on the spot bomber fan reporters.

    Hotels already sold out around the stadium. I just booked the last room at the super 8 on Niakwa Road east just 13 km away. 100 per night. Not bad.

    "The Queen Bee" is a small family owned place, attached spectacular food and a very Chinese theme. Very clean!! 10 minute walk to the Field. A plus, great value.

    It sold out I believe. I spotted it on the map near the stadium. Every where I clicked around said 'sold out'.

    44 weeks to go and suddenly Maclean's magazine makes Winnipeg into the last place on earth to want to go to.

    Winnipeg was always the last place one would want to go.

    22 and a half weeks til grey cup sunday and still LOTS of seats remain at IGF. I know they'll sell out late like last year depending on the western opponent but that's 2 straight years the venue hasn't sold out by june. after 5 straight years of june sellouts.
