Neat song... but not really something that pumps me up.

Way too slow and sleepy.

Anyone else going to tonight's game?

I doubt they are flying. I assume they are bussing it. And I don't know when they are leaving. Likely Saturday AM if I was to guess...

why would they bus it?

and wouldn;t it be today since they would need a minimum one day of light practice there?

I'm sorry. I am a huge Bomber fan and citizen of Swaggerville, but that was SUPER lame.

Winnipeg is bigger than a bunch of incest jokes and monotone/tone deaf "singing".

I saw the Power 97 logo, and closed it.

Sputnik's reply made me curious, and I agree. That is embarrassing to this province.

Wheeler is a tool and so is Westwood for starting this ridiculous rivalry!

Why is the rivalry ridiculous? It's all done in good fun on both ends.

you do realize that next weekend is called the Banjo Bowl because of a more notable Blue Bomber calling the Riders a bunch of banjo pickin inbreds right???

I think some local DJ's take it way too far.

they all take it too far. Apparently the local bus tours going there warn the peeps about getting beat up so stick together.

My hubby has been a few times to the Labour Day game in Regina wearing his Bomber jersey and never had any problems. Everyone was nice and got along.

Everyone has embraced the rivalry, that's great. But that Power 97 video is juvenile and moronic. I almost expected better of you, Dean. Wink

I stayed at a hotel here in town last weekend during the Banjo Bowl here, and it was FULL of green jerseys and Riders fans. They were all super nice and courteous, just here for a good time.

The LDC and follow up Banjo Bowl are almost legendary classics now and the fans from both teams have seriously embraced it. It truly makes for a great rivalry and makes the games more meaningful. These two weekends are very much looked forward to...

Nothing wrong with rivalry but some take it way too far. Lets show Regina what classy fans the Bombers have. Go Blue.

LOL the DJ's from Regina are equally ragging on Winnipeg, its done in fun. Some people just need to lighten up about some things.

The game was a joke. So happy I never jumped on the "swaggerville" bandwagon.

It's just one game. Swaggerville won't/shouldn't disappear because of one game.

The Bomber "D" played well. The only reason the Riders scored so many points was because the offense spent so little time on the field and they turned the ball over too often.

The next game will be a completely different game.

The lost a game that they almost never win. Lots of people falling off the bandwagon.

We are 7-2 and I believe we will destroy the Riders this week in Swaggerville!

What I can't stand about the Bombers losing the LDC every year is we have to listen to how great the Riders are for a full week until we get to put them back in their place at the Banjo Bowl

The solution is to just tune out.

The CFL has become important bread and circuses for the masses. Get all riled up about a game so that we don't pay as much attention to our corrupt and incompetent political masters. The NDP are hoping to benefit from the great season the Bombers are having and the return of the NHL. The Tories want to spy on our Internet traffic. Canada is among the most Internet connected countries in the world, but few are paying attention. There are some who follow important issues, as witnessed by discussions on the Sandbox, but most people are kept clueless by empty, meaningless distractions like Kardashian weddings, Mylie pot smoking and dancing on a stripper pole and now in MB, Swaggerville.

Pay less attention to what is less important and pay more attention to what is really important. Channel your anger accordingly. Goodbye NDP.
