I love Labour Day
One of the best things about Labour Day is the Football. It's CFL football of course, not as cool as NFL, or so my fiance says, but, whatever, it gets cold up here and we still play... kind of like the Green Bay Packers kind of cold... but it's all of our teams being tough in the cold, not just one out in the middle of no where...

So.

Anyways, the Labour Day Classic is between the Calgary Stampeders and the Edmonton Eskimos (see? that's a cold ass team name) and it's one of those great match-ups because the cities and the teams hate each other.

Case in point: This morning on the local rock station the obnoxious DJs (already at the tailgate party) phoned the Edmonton Quarterback at 7 am in his Calgary hotel room... they just called and asked for him and apparently the lady at the front desk had no idea who he was so she just connected them...

"Ricky Ray? Hey buddy! Time to get up and eat your Wheaties buddy!"

Followed by a big click. It was fan-tab-u-lous.

Last Labour Day... well, it was Labor Day, because I was in the US, I was getting reaquainted to my now-fiance. Wow, what a difference a year makes.

I love how Edmontonians - actually, northern Albertans in general - have this inferiority complex that makes them just HATE Calgary. Although, the Esks do tend to kick Calgary's butt, but who cares about football? The Flames are way better than the Oilers, and hockey is the only sport that counts in Canada! (Five years as a northerner and I still cheer for the south!)
