Winterpeg Blue Bummers

Postby dosanyos » Sat Oct 18, 2014 2:52 pm

Facts about 1990:
- East and West Germany are reunited
- Hubble Space Telescope is launched
- Nelson Mandela is released from prison
- Edmonton Oilers win their 5th Stanley Cup
- Top movie: Home Alone
- Top TV show: Cheers
- Winterpeg Blue Bummers win their most recent Grey Cup

So, the question is, are the Winterpeg Blue Bummers the biggest joke in the CFL in the last quarter century? I mean, it's been 24 years since their last Grey Cup victory, in what has mostly been an 8 team league. And it will be a 25 year drought after they miss the playoffs this year. I know they have a better record than Ottawa this year, but you have to give an expansion team a pass on that one. It's too bad the Bummers have sucked so bad for so long, and become a waste land of football talent for an entire generation. The CFL is best when all of its teams are healthy and successful, on and off the field. But the Bummers will require some kind of divine intervention to win another Grey Cup within the next 10 years.

that or break the bank as the riders did in 2013 to win at home in 2015. I believe.
