Are you ready for some football?

The Canadian Football League pre-season begins tonight with four games. The matchup I'm most interested in, of course, is the Saskatchewan Roughriders at the Edmonton Eskimos.

The Riders, who have become one of the top teams in the CFL over the past several years, winning the Grey Cup in 2007, are led by Head Coach Ken Miller. Saskatchewan has a potent offense, featuring wide receiver Weston Dressler(pictured), running back Wes Cates(out with an injured shoulder), quarterback Darian Durant and kicker Luca Congi.

Edmonton is led by first-year Head Coach Richie Hall, who spent the past 15 years on the Riders' coaching staff, the last eight as defensive coordinator. Quarterbacks Ricky Ray and Jason Maas, along with running back Calvin McCarty, pace the Eskimos offense.

Kickoff is set for 9:00pm EDT tonight, with Rod Pedersen and Carm Carteri calling the action. Catch all the excitement of tonight's game at 9:00pm EDT on

You're right. CFL football doesn't have the same "ring" as the NFL.

It rings LOUDER!

Go Riders!!!!

It may play the next one automatically, or you may have to click the little box to bring the thumbnails back up.
