Big Blue Set to Tackle Hunger, Argonauts on Friday

Big Blue Set to Tackle Hunger, Argonauts on Friday

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are coming off an impressive first win at home last week against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and if all the cards line up as they should, they’ll dominate the Toronto Argonauts on Friday.

Fans heading down to Canad Inns Stadium are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for Winnipeg Harvest. Donating to “Tin for the Bin” in partnership with Purolator’s “Tackle Hunger” drive will get you a picture next to the Grey Cup, as it makes a stop in the city.

Another photo op with the Grey Cup will take place later today at Winnipeg Harvest’s warehouse beginning at 2:30 p.m. QB Buck Pierce will also be there.

As Winnipeg was named Slurpee Capital of the World for the 11th year in a row, 7-Eleven will be making a special trophy presentation to the city prior to kickoff. Fans through the gates will get free cake and the first 2,000 will receive a limited edition 80th anniversary Big Gulp Slurpee mug. If you’ve never been a Bomber game, going for the free cake is a big enough reason on its own.

Many great seats are still available at Ticketmaster for tomorrow’s game. If you’re not one of the rowdy types, try to stay away from booking a seat in Section S. You may end up having to stack cups.
