The Banjo Bowl in Winnipeg follows the Labour Day Classic in Regina -- which (ahem!) the Riders won this year by 52 to zero, thank you jeebuz. How the Banjo Bowl was born: In 2003, Blue Bombers placekicker/punter Troy Westwood was being hauled over the coals for insulting Saskatchewan and he decided to reply:
"I had referred to the people of Saskatchewan as a bunch of banjo-picking inbreds," Westwood said that afternoon in the Bomber locker-room. "I was wrong to make such a statement, and I'd like to apologize.UPDATE: 25 riders 24 bombers. Yay, team!
[wait for it]
"The vast majority of the people in Saskatchewan have no idea how to play the banjo."

Actually, I do, but don't feel strongly either way.
Got too used to the green I guess, really don't like Edmonton switch to green helmets or Calgary wearing the black ones, of the bunch The Riders are the best.

They snatched victory from the jaws of defeat!
The one thing I hate with baseball teams is when they wear the "retro" uniforms from the 60s or 70s, which were often psychedelic or otherwise strange looking. Further back, OK.
