The Labour Day Classic for 2017 is in the books. Now it’s time for the Banjo Bowl to close out the home and home series for the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Many eyes are on Premier Brad Wall, who infamously played his banjo in a video taking a shot at the Blue Bombers.
On the CJME Morning Show, Woodsy had an important question for Wall about the banjo.
“Are you going to bring out the banjo and chirp the Manitoba premier? I’ve heard he’s been rather quiet after the Labour Day game,” Woodsy asked.
“The last time I played the banjo before a Banjo Bowl we lost the Banjo Bowl and the next three games,” Wall said. “There were a number of fans that we’re pretty angry at me, they were giving me certain instructions as to what I should do with that banjo.”
He did point out the Riders won the Grey Cup in 2013 – the last time he played his banjo.
“That, not withstanding, I’m going to be cautious and play it safe. I’m not even looking at my banjo until way after the game,” Wall said.
Wall said he did send out a tweet to Manitoba Premier Brain Pallister following the Labour Day Classic.

Wall said Pallister liked the tweet but didn’t respond.
The Banjo Bowl on Saturday in Winnipeg is sold out.
Kick off at Investors Group Field is 1 p.m. Saskatchewan time.
