Buzz and Boomer
2 large blue-coloured birds, Buzz and Boomer made their debut in 1984 at Winnipeg Stadium. Upon their inception, they quickly became fan favorites. The two birds are now found at IG Field the Winnipeg Blue Bombers new home stadium. During the offseason, they usually appear at various events on behalf of, or hosted by, the Blue Bombers organization.
- Buzz- Wears a Bombers helmet, flying goggles, and a blue jersey with number 01. He also has a long yellow beak. Buzz tends to be the more daring of the two mascots, performing the majority of the stunts of the duo.
- Boomer- Taller and leaner than Buzz, Boomer is more laid back than his counterpart. He spends more time cheering up the crowd than performing wild stunts. He wears a Bomber football helmet and a gold jersey with number 00. Boomer has a short, broad beak.
In 2012, a fan ran down the field and tackled Buzz during a game.
