4 Your Guide to Investors Group Field DANCING GABE COMING TO BIG SCREENS SOON WINNIPEG'S BELOVED DANCING SPORTS FAN CAN'T WAIT TO GET DOWN AT INVESTORS GROUP FIELD. On a recent tour, Dancing Gabe Langlois had the chance to stand on the field and take in the players' view of the new stadium. "It's going to be fantastic," Langlois said as he imagined seeing himself on the giant video screens for the first time. "I think it's a great place." As part of his tour, Langlois got to experience it all. "The seating is great and they have ribbon boards, too. I also got to see the locker rooms and they were impressive. The weight room is fantastic and I saw the hot and cold tubs and even a water treadmill to run on which is excellent." Langlois, who has been dancing at Blue Bomber games since 1984, picked up his moniker from the media while dancing at a Winnipeg Jets game. "He's a Winnipeg sports icon," said Jerry Maslowsky, vice-president of marketing and brand development for the Winnipeg Football Club. "I know Blue Bomber fans are looking forward to seeing him break out his best moves at Investors Group Field." ' IT'S GOING TO BE FANTASTIC. I THINK IT'S A GREAT PLACE.' While he admits he'll miss parts of the team's old digs at Polo Park, Langlois is looking ahead. "I'm sad to see it go," Langlois said of Canad Inns Stadium. "There were a lot of good memories there, but now it's a brand-new era. I think Investors Group Field will be 20-times better than the old one."
