    Really nice epic evening in Winnipeg. Jets take Patrick Laine at #2 in NHL draft. Well over 24,000 at IGF stadium looking on.

    Some things never change though. Rod Black assigned by TSN to soil another broadcast w/ his pandering sidekick Dull Duane Forde.

    Mike O'Stoic back with his expressionless and vacant coaching style.

    PLOP working like a Mexican jumping bean.

    Bombers still have a sieve o-line with little depth. (is Tyson Pencer still alive?)

    If Glenn can get a bit o time to pass - he'll pick apart a mediocre to sketchy bomber secondary!

    Now, back to Rotten Roddy on TSN.....

    All over Winnipeg the media (even some of the team) were talking this game as a "MUST WIN".... obviously if the team goes down before the home fans tonite (they'd be 6-23 at IGF) they'll turn on that "MUST WIN" philosophy and kick the can down the road - to the next game. Been der, done dat!

    Still sunny in my part of the city. About an hour's delay plus warmup time. Gave TSN a chance to showcase Wadzilla with his new Chris Farley look. Rod Babbleblack seems lost in space - what else is new?

    Most of the panel (except Matty Dunigan) blaming Dressler for not going out of bounds on that short slant pass - instead trying to go head to head with a bigger Als defender. Not a particularly smart move. When you go out of bounds you might not get that extra 1/2 a yard - BUT you put the defense in peril via getting them to smack you out of bounds and adding 15 to the gain. Gotta be smarter Weston - of course, being lodged in Regina for six years with all those dumfugs didn't help!

    Bombers reverting to form after lightning hits Wadzilla and decides its not worth the effort.
    Anyways, bomber d-line, supposedly stronger and ruggeder than last year appears mediocre to slightly below average - particularly against a quick-hitting passer like Glenn.
    Winnipeg o-line was porous murder to begin with and looks like they really haven't upgraded - bombers are slightly under-powered on their d-line and linebackers - and vastly under-powered on their o-line.
    Suck Chung looks like he's in a perpetual daze and Goose Goosen only looks pro on the sidelines. Garbage on the field.
    And then there's the worst $400,000 player in CFL history. Drew "I Need Time" Willy.
    Without time - willy is a waste of a good uniform! (Note: Bombers will no doubt sluff of a loss tonite by saying its just too early, re-dress Willy for next game, etc., etc.
    If Bombers go 3 games, maybe 4 - GM Kyle and Coach Stoic might insert Nicholls into the fray. Nichols a bit more accurate and gets the ball off sooner - might be slightly more mobile than the almost inert Willy.

    TIME FOR WINNIPEG FANS TO PANIC - AND RUGRIDER FANS TO GLOAT!

    Whats the over/under for Willy staying in the game - based on the bombers form chart for stubbornness they'll go deep into the game with Drew Useless.

    Willy appears to not be a player anymore. Of course, what should the bombers expect from a Rider Reject?

    Bombers committed to keeping Pooh Willy in game for fear his fragile confidence would be totally shattered even if Nicholls or the other guy inserted for a few series.

    Plop frantically trying to adjust his gameplan to prevent repetitive 2 and outs by Bombers
