Memo to: Toronto

From: Laurie Mustard,

Dear Toronto,

So we're coming down there to kick Boatmen butt, are we?

No question our Winnipeg Blue Bombers will emerge victorious on Sunday.

Maybe you'd like to know why.

Well, for one thing, despite your somewhat desperate belief that your defence can keep you safe, the fact is our Bombers want it more than your Argonauts, as do we Big Blue fans here in the 'Peg, so we're just going to come and take it.

If there's one thing our stars -- Kevin Glenn, Milt Stegall, Charles Roberts and the rest of the boys -- like to do, it's poke big holes in an overinflated, overconfident blowhard defence. Our thanks to your whinebacker Kevin Eiben for sealing your fate by predicting we won't score more than 10 points in Sunday's final. Motivation, thy name is Eiben.

What is an Argonaut anyway? I looked it up online in the Free Dictionary, and the definition that seems to best suit your team is: "A cephalopod mollusk of warm seas whose females have delicate papery spiral shells." You're seafood! Oooooo, scary.

Basically, you're nothing more than a tasty snack for the Bombers to enjoy, process and pass, before winning the Grey Cup.

Hey, always happy to help you sell a few hot dogs. Slip on your tights, and prepare for pain.
