It’s the last game of the season for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers tonight as they attempt to put the months of devastating losses behind them.
The Bombers will welcome the Calgary Stampeders to Canad Inns Stadium, and despite missing the playoffs, the team is attempting to boost morale on the field by dedicating the last game of the year entirely to the fans.
It wasn’t all bad news in 2010 for the Bombers — receiver Terrence Edwards is enjoying a career year and sits 22-yards up on both Andy Fantuz and Arland Bruce for the league lead. Fred Reid is only 11 rushing yards behind Toronto’s Cory Boyd, and Phillip Hunt leads the league in quarterback sacks with 16.
Every fan walking through the gates tonight will pick up a $10.00 Bomber Store Voucher and a 2010 Team Poster to commemorate the season. Season ticket holders will have a chance to win a trip for two to the 2011 Grey Cup in Vancouver and a pair of U2 tickets will also be given away. Archangel Fireworks will provide entertainment during halftime.
Fans are encouraged to bring a new unwrapped toy in support of the Toy Mountain Drive, which helps Salvation Army deliver the toys during the holiday season.
The Bomber Store will also return to St. Vital Centre on Saturday, November 6 for the holiday season. Unique items will only be available at the temporary location while supplies last.
Kickoff is 7 p.m. tonight. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.
