Eskimo Empire Podcast episode 46: On fandom with Boyd and Brazilian Ty

The Turf District is electric with the start of Esks training camp 2016. UT is beside himself! The boys welcome Boyd in as a featured fan and new Eskimos season seat holder Brazilian Ty joins in the fun again!

Boyd tells everyone about his playing days with the Golden Bears when he was able to play under Tom Wilkinson and learned a lot in his time there. In 1993, Boyd was in Eskimos training camp and went up against Gizmo for the returner position.  A longtime fan of the team, he was able to raise the 13th man flag in 2008 and has many great stories surrounding Eskimo football.

The boys then break down the first two days of training camp. The heated battles are at RB and LB with each spot having many options already. The Maas offense is installing quickly. Who seems to be executing it the best? Who were the standouts for the first two days? The boys discuss who looks to stay and who may be the surprise cuts. As always, you can find the preamble video right here.

Lots of great fans and guests to come as the Esks start their defense of The Grey Cup. You can find the Eskimo Empire Podcast on iTunes or click on the banner directly below. As always, we will absolutely talk to you next week.
