A young boy who went to his first C-F-L game in Winnipeg left the game in tears after being harrassed and having beer poured over his head, all because he happened to be wearing a green sweater.
Nine-year-old Taylor Emond and his mom, Janell-Marie Emond, were given tickets to the game between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
But his mom says people started swearing at him and giving him a hard time because he was wearing a green sweater, which is the colour of the Roughriders.
Monday, the Blue Bombers dropped off a gift basket for the boy and invited his family to another game, saying the actions of those fans were disappointing.
