Training camp is here! Training Camp is here!

Andrew and Superfan Mike are positively giddy with excitement as it's like ChristMaas with Training Camp open at Commonwealth Stadium, as they welcome back featured fan Paul Rechner (@prrechner) visiting Edmonton from Vancouver Island and sharing his wisdom in the Turf District. Much to discuss with new players joining the team, players shifting positions and pre-season games are just around the corner! All this plus the winner of the Esks: By The Numbers contest, Paul picks the inaugural "Jimmy Gaines! Award" winner as the most impressive new player after the first few days of camp, a new Esks' History segment, and much, much more!

Alright Eskimo fans: ARE.... YOU.... READY!!!

Andrew and Superfan Mike are both pumped for the start of Training Camp this coming Sunday and for the upcoming Westivus kickoff party on Friday at 1stRnd downtown. To help pump up the crowd, they've brought the Commonwealth in-stadium announcer and voice of the Eskimos: Al Stafford! Al shares his stories of his 20 years on the job, and looks back at his time giving the plays as they happen for the crowds. A fantastic story, and great to meet the man behind the voice! All this, Esks news and CFL news wraps it all up and that's another football into the end zone for HIGH.... SCHOOL... FOOTBALL!

After an exciting CFL draft, Andrew and Superfan Mike had some great conversations with two of the Eskimos 2017 selections: Receiver Nate Behar (1st round, 5th overall) and Defensive End Kwaku Boateng (5th round, 41st overall). Two bright and exciting players who we will hopefully see much more of over their careers in football, and what IS Mr. Boateng's nickname, anyway? All this plus we look at the latest CFL and Eskimos commercials that just came out and give a full rundown of who was drafted when for the Green & Gold in 2017.
