Mayor Brian Bow­man has made a bet with his coun­ter­part in Regina over Sun­day’s CFL West semi­fi­nal and hop­ing not to have go green over it.

“In the un­likely event that the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are not suc­cess­ful on Sun­day I will be light­ing the Winnipeg sign (at The Forks) a dis­gust­ing shade of green,” said Bow­man on Fri­day. "In the event when we of course win we will see blue and gold.

“So I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to hav­ing it prop­erly lit in the very near fu­ture. I ob­vi­ously want to wish the team and staff the very best.”

No word what Regina mayor Michael Fougere has promised to re­cip­ro­cate in the event of the Blue Bombers vic­tory.

“I ask all Win­nipeg­gers who are trav­el­ing out to Regina to travel safely and cheer hard for the Bombers,” said Bow­man.
