Overlooked in the pre-game analysis, and certainly in the 7½-point line favoring the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Sunday in Alumni Field in Guelph, was one thing.

The Edmonton Eskimos are REALLY good at this sort of thing.

Put ’em in a new playpen, temporary or permanent, rain or shine, and the Eskimos know how to make themselves at home.

Playing in unfamiliar facilities is something of a specialty, actually.

They beat the Argos in Moncton in the first Touchdown Atlantic 2010 and also won pre-season and regular season games in the temporary Empire Field in Vancouver and then returned to re-open the B.C. Place to record the only regular season victory (other than the Eskimos once again last year) anybody has managed to this point in the $500-million plus refurbished stadium.
