Blue Bombers Fall Short of the Grey Cup

After an amazing season… our Winnipeg Blue Bombers fell one win short of the Grey Cup. The Bombers lost 23 – 34 to the B.C. Lions in Vancouver.

B.C. also became only the forth team in CFL history to capture the cup at home. The ’94 Lions, ’72 Hamilton Tiger-Cats and ’77 Montreal Alouettes also accomplished that feat.

The Bombers made a good run in the 4th and showed signs of a comeback… but the Lions early lead was too much of a hole to dig out of.

Thanks for the great season Blue!! See you in 2012!
