The Resume

    (1930- )
    Originally named the 'Winnipegs'
    Became 'Winnipeg Pegs' in 1932, 'Blue Bombers' in 1936
    WIFU (1936-53), CFL (1954- )
    Twelve Grey Cups (1935, 1939, 1941, 1958-59, 1961-62, 1984, 1988, 1990, 2019, 2021)

Why they might be annoying:

    They have changed divisions often, going back and forth between the West and East divisions several times since 1987.
    They were denied a chance to defend their first Grey Cup because they didn't play under the same rules as the teams from eastern Canada (1940).
    Their official Web site does not include a link to their history.
    When they hosted the Grey Cup Game for the first time in 1991, the temperature at game time was 2°F (-17°C).
    Their uniforms make them look like the Los Angeles Rams.

Why they might not be annoying:

    They were the first western team to win the Grey Cup (1935).
    Former Minnesota Vikings head coach Bud Grant led them to four Grey Cups in five years before heading to the NFL.
    They won the only Grey Cup Game to go into overtime, defeating Hamilton 21-14 (1961).
    They ended a 29 year Grey Cup drought by winning back-to-back championships (albeit, with a year in between as a result of the 2020 season not being played as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic).
