Last week, just in case Manitoba landed an NHL team, you voted on a new theme song. Looks like we might be hearing The Boys are Back in Town this coming season.
CBC staff members were quick to throw in suggestions this morning. How about Manitoba Snowflake, Winnipeg Warriors, Winnipeg Slurpee...or Winnipeg Buzz, Manitoba Flood, Winnipeg Big Gulp, the Manitoba Dike...Thrashformers (a play on Transformers!)...Polarbears (they are cute, cuddly, and will rip 'yer head off).
Let's get down to the serious business of a picking a name for the team.
Vote now. We'll be building the poll throughout the day, so suggest a name if the one you want isn't on the list.
Note: Usually SCENE is in the 'serious business' of local arts and entertainment, so take a look around the site after you vote and find out what's moving and shaking in Manitoba.
And if you comment on this poll, you will be eligible to win our Big Ticket Contest in the coming week.
