things that are making you happy - Page 2989
This was a FB update I just got from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (CFL football team). Not happy that they lost, but irregardless:
And that's the game, the Riders beat the#Bombers in one of the best LDCs in years, 35-30. See you at the MB Liquor & Lotteries Banjo Bowl!
I'm happy that this isn't creative make believing. Why it's called the Banjo Bowl makes me even happier.
"The "Banjo Bowl" moniker was coined by Blue Bombers board member David Asper in early 2004, inspired by an infamous comment made by Bombers placekicker Troy Westwood in the week prior to a 2003 Western Division Semi-final game between the two teams. Westwood was quoted in the media as saying that people from Regina were "a bunch of banjo-pickin' inbreds." He later apologized half-heartedly for those comments, saying that "the vast majority of the people in Saskatchewan have no idea how to play the banjo."
