He Wore It Well: Robert Gordon, WR, 1999-2004

Robert Gordon already had three 1,000-yard seasons to his name – with Toronto, Ottawa and Edmonton – when he arrived in Winnipeg in 1999. Gordon, nicknamed ‘Bobby Gorgeous’ by head coach Dave Ritchie, spent six seasons with the Bombers and posted his best numbers in 2000 with 89 receptions for 1,395 yards and seven TDs. He was a big part of the aerial show of the Bombers at the start of the millennium along with Milt Stegall, Arland Bruce III and Geroy Simon before returning in 2004. Gordon is now a personal trainer and has also had roles in three movies, including ‘Any Given Sunday’ (1999), ‘100 Million B.C.’ (2008) and ‘Second String’ (2002).
