Thanskiving Football in Canada - East meets West

It's Thanksgiving Day in Canada - our turkey day and just as football goes with Thanksgiving in the US, so it does in Canada.

There are back to back games on TSN, the first one featuring the Montreal Allouettes who have already clinched the East, and the Calgary Stampeders, still in contention in the West.  They share top spot with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who wonn yesterday.

Not only is this a chance to catch some great football, but it's a chance to see the two teams who went to the Grey Cup in 2008 play once again against each other.  The Stamps won that contest, so the Als will be out to pound them into submission.

The second game is the Winnipeg Blue Bombers against the Hamilton Tiger Cats.  The Blue Bombers will see the return of receiver, Terrence Edwards, after his concussion sidlined him September 20th.  Hamilton lost the last two, against both the Als and the Stamps, while Winnipeg won their last two.

Both games are live on TSN.
