Berry makes the most of deluge

KIRK PENTON -- Winnipeg Sun

It rained so hard at Winnipeg Blue Bombers practice yesterday that Noah was seen stopping by The Home Depot across from Canad Inns Stadium to pick up some ark supplies.

Bombers head coach Doug Berry, however, somehow saw a positive in the downpour.

"It's not good for the passing game, but if we got anything out of it, we got a good concentration level today," said Berry.

Berry said his team has had a great week of preparation for its clash tomorrow night against the Montreal Alouettes.

"We had a good day today," he said. "It was a good day every day."

CHANGE IS GOOD: Berry is not concerned about making six roster changes for tomorrow's game that will result in two new starters -- defensive tackle Dante Booker and right tackle Jermese Jones.

"The biggest change probably is going to come at punter," said Berry.

"We haven't experienced much of Troy (Westwood), but other than that, I don't think we're going to have any drop off the ledge in terms of one level to the next."

KYRIES WATCH: Kyries Hebert is going to see a bit of action on defence when he makes his Bomber debut tomorrow night.

Hebert will play primarily on the punt and kickoff cover teams, but he's been working out at safety in practice and will get on the field in certain situations.

"There's no game plan to evaluate Kyries Hebert," said Berry. "What he gets is how he's going to be evaluated."

DUCAT COUNT: As of 5 p.m. yesterday, the Bombers had sold more than 24,000 tickets for tomorrow's game.
