Pac-Man Jones Fever Hits Winnipeg
Former Tennessee Titan and Dallas Cowboy Adam Pac-Man Jones has signed a one-year deal with the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The Bombers get what they want: a reason for someone to remember if Winnipeg has two i's or two e's. Jones gets what he wants: money and a chance to show anyone he's not a bad guy.
He'll also get cold. NHL guys are glad that the Winnipeg Jets moved because there is no where colder than that place during the winter. The good news is that the Blue Bombers are 3-5 right now so their season most likely will end in November. But think how cold Buffalo and Minneapolis (there's that word again!) are in the fall.
It will be interesting to see if he gets into any trouble in Winnipeg. It ain't Dallas or even Nashville. Also interesting since the Bombers ... like the Green Bay Packers ... are a community owned franchise (as are fellow CFL teams in Edmonton and Saskatchewan).
