Blue Bombers - Winnipeg was known as the Winnipeg Rugby Football Club, or "Winnipegs", whose colors were blue and gold starting in 1932. A comment by a reporter calling the team "the blue bombers of Western Football" in 1936 led the team to be called the Blue Bombers first unofficially, then officially soon after. The bomber reference was to heavyweight champion Joe Louis, popular at that time, whose nickname was the Brown Bomber.
