Few things get us more excited than football here at Barkman. A particularly well-made planter or a fully-realized driveway may top the list, but football, well, football is really something. This 2013 CFL season is particularly special for Winnipeggers as it marks the first year in the Blue Bombers brand new stadium, Investors Group Field. In celebration, Barkman was happy to give away one of our pizza ovens to a lucky fan at this year’s home opener.
Our very own Monte Scholz was also lucky enough to participate in a special kickoff run to “kickoff” the season. For the event, a group of Bomber fans, including Monte, relayed the official kickoff ball down Pembina highway and into the stadium. The ball will eventually be placed in the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame alongside a list of everyone who carried it to Investors Group Field. Word on the street is that Monte was thrilled to participate in Bomber history and believes that getting into the Hall of Fame for a few minutes of work isn’t half bad.
