True to his word, Fougere lit up Regina’s Mosaic Stadium with blue and gold following the 23-18 Bombers victory, no doubt irritating the Riders’ famously die-hard fans.

“Thanks for being a good sport, Mayor,” said Bowman in a tweet Monday night. “#Ridernation has never looked better!”

The Bombers have advanced to the CFL’s West Final, travelling to Calgary this weekend to take on the Stampeders. The winner earns a Grey Cup berth.
