Fun weekend ahead for Winnipeg sports fans.

The weekend is upon us and it will be a very exciting one for sports fans in Winnipeg.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are set to host the East Final on Sunday and it will be the very last game at Canad Inns Stadium after 58 years. The stadium has been the home of the Bombers since 1953 and has also hosted concerts by such huge acts as U2 and Paul McCartney. I've had many a fun time in the old stadium and will definitely miss the old place.

It's also a big weekend for Jets fans. The team has pulled off two solid victories this week and they seem to be playing their best hockey. Evander Kane looks better with every game and is so fun to watch out on the ice.

This Saturday the Jets play the Philadelphia Flyers at 2pm and many Jets fans are excited for the chance to boo Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, who made terrible comments about Winnipeg last season. He has since apologized but I assume the boo birds will still be out in full force.

If you had told me last year the Jets would be back and the Bombers would be hosting the East Final I would have laughed at you but here we are. So enjoy the weekend sports fans. It's bound to be a good one.

Go Jets and Go Bombers!!!!
