WINNIPEG — A statue honouring Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ legend Bud Grant has been unveiled at Investors Group Field.
The football club on Thursday pulled back the curtain on the 7’6″ bronze statue representing Grant, the team’s most winningest head coach of all time. Grant was at the helm of the Bombers from 1957 to 1966.
“This is not me,” a humble Grant said of the statue, crafted by MST Bronze Limited. “It may be a likeness of me, but it doesn’t represent me. It represents everybody that played for the Bombers, not only in my time, but all time. It’s a great tribute.”
