WINNIPEG - Jovon Johnson will celebrate his 30th birthday on Saturday when the Bombers host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to close out their disastrous 2013 season.

What the Bomber safety does not want for his birthday is to officially become part of one of the five worst teams in the Winnipeg Football Club's 83-year history.

If the Bombers lose, they will equal the franchise's worst mark in an 18-game season at 3-15, or a winning percentage of .167. If they can pull off a victory, however, they will tie for the seventh worst winning percentage in franchise history at .222.

Neither is great, but one is better than the other in today's world, where top 10 lists have been whittled down to top five compilations. A win on Saturday means 2013 will be mentioned much less in the future than it will be if they lose to the Tabbies.
