    Battle of the bottom feeders tonight. Glad to be able to watch on NBCSports tonight. What's your take on the action? It's a battle of strengths combined with a battle of weaknesses. Eskimos Defense against the strong Ticat offense plus the Keystone Cops on offense against the Marx Brothers on defense.

    Right after the car auction is done. Great, exciting lead in programming!

    Burris throws a pick and the Eskies take over at mid-field.

    The turnover turns into a FG. Eskies 3 Tabbies 0

    Ticats drive the length of the field but can't crack the 10 yard line. Settle for a FG and it's 3-3.

    Henry Burris yanked from the game. Dan LeFevour comes in and does ok.

    Mike Reilly is taking some shots tonight. Bouncing so far but the Eskimos have to kick again.

    FG is good and it's 6-3 for Edmonton

    Burris is back.

    Henry's time on the sideline has apparently given him some insight.

    Ticats score the first major of the game. 10-6 Tiggers.

    Tiggers are lighting this up right now. A stretch of offensive gameplanning gone right.

    Another TD (pass to the boy wonder Ellingson) and it's 17-6 Hamilton.

    Jeez, the CFL is leading the sports world in Cosmo Kramer types - ie. Hervey, JoJo Mack, Kavis, Tommy Dreamer (Austin).

    Can't forget about Rod Black, either....

    Deuvl - who's that little guy coach next to Tommy Dreamer on the Ticats sideline? Looks like Woody Allen!

    Hamilton gives up a safety but also gets another 2 and out on defense.

    Ticat offense can't get it done so another FG. Hamilton 20 Edmonton 8 in the 3Q with 5 minutes to go.

    Thanks to a great catch from former Dino Nate Coehoorn and a delay because of a streaker on the field the Eskimos got a play inside the 10 yard line to work. Kerry Joseph pitches it out to Hugh Charles who lights up the corner of the endzone.

    End of 3Q Ticats 20 Eskies 15

    TDs both ways and it's a 27-22 game with 5 minutes to go. Never turn away from a CFL game...

    Down to a final 2 minutes and the Tiggers kick a FG to go up by 8.

    What can Kavis do this time?

    Edmonton scores quick (too quick?) but blow the 2 point convert so it's 30-28 Tiggers with 1:16 to go and Hamilton ball inside their own 20.

    A traditional CFL ending with Edmonton getting back downfield to the Hamilton 43 and the 50 yard FG attempt goes slightly wide right and they get the rouge. 30-29 final.

    Good 4Q got the American interest though. Lots of action on twitter so hopefully that translates into viewers on Monday.

    Too funny! :D

    The "Gang that Couldn't Shoot Straight" gaffes another one on the final play of the game!

    And Kavis continues the eyeball rollin'...;)

    30-29 Ticats is yer final.

    Ain't gonna be any problem obtaining ducats in this town for the LD rematch on Friday, September 6th. :p

    Aside from Doogie, anybody else comin' up?

    We can plan something if there's a group...Hell, even if there isn't, we'll plan something anyway! ;)
