It’s the day they’ve all been waiting for. Every CIS player dreams of playing in the Vanier Cup, and for the players and coaches of the McMaster Marauders, that dream has finally come true.

The Sil’s got your Vanier Cup needs covered. Check here tonight for the game story and follow @Decker_Brian, who’s live on site in Vancouver, and @SilSports for updates.

A few of the Mac players have Twitter, and by the looks of their tweets, they’re raring to go for tonight’s game. Here’s what a few of the players have had to say so far:

LB Ryan Chmielewski (@Chummer_54): “Few hours til #Vanier can’t wait. #macmen gonna put on a show for our viewers. We promise we won’t disappoint.@tsn_sports” – at 1:09 PM

CB Joey Cupido (@joecup18): “#Macmen getting ready to win one more game at the #VanierCupthanks to everyone for your support on this journey #bringittoMcMaster” – at 9:51 AM

LB/DE Shane Beaton (@SB13x0) “Hay is in the Barn. #MacMen ready to go to war tomorrow. #VanierCup” – yesterday. (note: ‘Hay is in the Barn’ is a Stef Ptaszek/Gary Jefferies term that means all the preparations have been made for a game and all that’s left to do is play)

If you’re looking to get caught on the Marauders, the Rouge et Or and how they got to the Vanier Cup (as well as a bunch of other interesting stories), here’s a little post with all your required reading for tonight’s game.

Interested in tonight’s game? You’ve got a few options for following along.

– Vanier Cup parties are being held in the Burridge Gym and at TwelvEighty. Both were pretty well attended for last week’s Uteck Bowl, and the atmosphere at TwelvEighty was lots of fun. I was there last week and it’s nice to see that many people into the game. Have to imagine they’ll be even better tonight.

– TSN is carrying the game live at 6 p.m.

– You can follow the liveblog commentary of the CIS Blog, where I’ll be joining Andrew Bucholtz, who runs Yahoo! Sports’ CFL Blog, The 55 Yard Line, and a host of others.
