As each CFL team's season comes to an end, we're going to look back on the highs, lows and issues they faced this year. Rather than doing so with Dear John letters or eulogies from their opponents, we're going to borrow a classic writer's trick and anthropomorphize each team's season with a newspaper-style obituary. First up: your 2010 Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers' 2010 season passed away Friday night from a lack of wins. The Bombers; season had been labeled as a terminal case after a 27-8 loss to Toronto eliminated them from playoff contention, and schedule-makers gave the season only weeks to live.
The Bombers did not go gently into that good night, however, and almost took the Edmonton Eskimos with them before falling 16-13 in overtime last week in a game that could have potentially doomed Edmonton's playoff aspirations. They put up another valiant effort Friday against the Calgary Stampeders, but again came up just short, losing 35-32.
