Eskimo Empire Podcast #48: It’s Ladies Nite (Oh, what a night!)

The Italian Connection Break out the panini and the wine as the Empire welcomes Anto and Lulu into the Turf District as featured fans!

The ladies have been Esks fans for most of their lives and tell the boys about some of their favorite memories with the team, their favorite players and the changes for the upcoming season. The debate then rages on for who had the "best butt" on teams past. The poll will be up on the Eskimo Empire Twitter feed.

The whole gang gives their thoughts on the first preseason win over the Stamps and who looked good. (Or sounded good as it may be) Is Bryant Mitchell a receiver to watch? Is Franklin still the number 2 QB? Is there a drop off with this defense? So many questions and each person gives their impression.

The rest of the CFL isn't forgotten, either, as we review our “fake” picks from week one of preseason and pick the winners for week 2. Join in the regular season CFL Pick 'Em pool by clicking here.

The Periscope video, in which Lulu talks about the band 5 Day Trial that had 5 Eskimo players in it from 1978, may be found here. The one track can be heard at the end of the podcast. Don't say you weren't warned.

So many laughs as the show is #goingitalian. 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.
