What a week - The Grey Cup game turned into an Instant Classic, coming right down to the wire in an overtime thriller. Superfan Mike comes off the IR and he and Andrew welcome back returning guests, the voice of the Edmonton Eskimos on 630 CHED radio, Play-by-play man Morley Scott (@Morley_Scott) and colour analyst Dave Campbell (@Dave_CHED).

The boys talk Grey Cup as well as a year-end wrap on the team, giving their opinions on the coaches, offense, defense and special teams. They also announce the winners of the Empire Points contest and announce the Year End Westivus Party. Hope to see you all there!

A decisive victory by the Green & Gold has the boys in a great mood, but it's who led the team into battle that has Andrew particularly giddy. He, along with UT and Superfan Mike, welcomes back Josh Semchuk (@joshuasemchuk) back to the Turf District to talk all things Eskimos, but especially to talk about that great game vs the Argonauts to end the regular season and go into the Playoffs on a high note.

Andrew, UT and Superfan Mike welcome into the Turf District the President of the "Friends of the Argos" - the Official Fan Club of the Toronto Argonauts - Lori Bursey (@ArgoDiva)!

Lori has been a long time Argo fan and Grey Cup traveler, and she shares some of her stories of her fan-dom with the boys, and then talks Argos & Esks ahead of the game on Saturday afternoon. Will this be Ricky Ray's last game as an Argo? Or perhaps even ever...?

Tune in and enjoy!

You are in for a treat today! Andrew, UT and Superfan Mike welcome former Eskimos Communications/PR/Marketing Director (1998-2011) Dave Jamieson (@jamieson1260) into the Turf District. "Jamo" currently works on-air for TSN 1260, and was gracious enough to spend some time sharing stories about his time with the team, and had us all in stitches.

Who used to pee on their equipment? What was it like being in the presence of Hugh Campbell and Jackie Parker for a living? What does he think about the discussion about changing the Eskimos' name? Download the podcast and listen, laugh, and be amazed! We couldn't fit it all in one podcast, so you get half now, and later we'll release the second half in a special episode - coming soon.
