Blue Bombers show big profits

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers had major box office success last season and they trotted out a record profit on operations Monday to prove it.

They made $3-million, although it was whittled down to just over $2.3-million when development costs for a new stadium were factored in.

That $3-million on operations even topped the $2.9-million the Bombers made in 2006, when they hosted a Grey Cup,

It's amazing when you consider the Jets returned, and commanded top ticket prices with three year commitments.

Congratulations Winnipeg!
