Edmonton Eskimos

The Edmonton Eskimos are Edmonton's professional football team.  They play in the Canadian Football League, and though there are many similarities between the CFL and NFL, there are also several notable differences.  Our friend, Binh, gave us her company's tickets to go see the Edmonton Eskimos play at Commonwealth Stadium.  The seats were fantastic- we were in row 5 at the 55 yard line!  Binh's husband, Neil, came with us, and we invited Sarah to come, too.  It was Jason's first professional football game and though it wasn't the NFL, he says he really enjoyed it (I was half-expecting that he'd sit there the whole night and complain about the "stupid" CFL rules).  The Eskimos ended up winning their 5th game in a row. What a fun experience it was!
