Sports in Winnipeg, Winnipeg
We have season tickets for the local Triple A Goldeye's baseball team. Going to the games are always a lot of fun & is actually very entertaining. The facility is excellent & the food and drinks are very reasonably priced. It makes for an inexpensive evening for the whole family.
I had thought about jumping out of a plane, taking adventure of the vast treeless spaces here in Manitoba. But I figured that this was somewhat more sane. (I shouldn't disparage sky-diving - this same place also offers sky-diving)
Affordable - you brave enough?
Watch our hockey, football, baseball, or basketball teams!
The Manitoba Moose are in the AHL and are affiliated with the Canucks. They are fairly good (I guess) and play at the Winnipeg Arena.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers, our football team, after years of mediocrity, have suddenly become one of the best teams in the CFL. Go and see them play at Winnipeg Stadium.
The Winnipeg Goldeyes, who play in the Northern Baseball league, reportedly attract more fans than the MLB's Expos in Montreal! For some baseball fun, go see them play in CanWest Stadium by the Forks downtown.
The Cyclone (our basketball team) aren't very good, as far as I know, but you may want to go see them. I don't have a clue where they play, so if you want to see them, you'll have to find this out for yourself.
Winnipeg is the world's curling capital!
What is curling, you may ask?
It's a winter sport in which granite stones are thrown down a sheet of ice.
Winnipeg has several curling clubs. If you would like to learn to play or have a game with some friends, give one of them a ring. Most clubs have public ice time.
In addition, sometimes tournaments are held in the city, if you are interested in watching a game. In 2002, the World Curling Championships are coming to Winnipeg!
Well they don't have the Jets anymore, but Winnipeg still boasts a big part of Canadian hockey. The Manitoba Moose is the farm club of the Vancouver Canucks, and is coached by noneother than Canuck legend Stan 'Steamer' Smyl.
