We haven’t even visited Edmonton International Airport, but their baggage claim area is now one of our favorites.

As part of a larger renovation of the airport, officials have just added three different sports-themed baggage carousels. The suitcase chutes and conveyor belts now feature graphics, logos, and colors from the city’s local sports teams. The Edmonton Oilers, Edmonton Oil Kings, and the Edmonton Eskimos (they’re part of the Canadian Football league) are all well represented.

Televisions feature highlights and team history, although, we’re optimistic that they’ll beam live coverage of the games sooner than later. There’s even some oversized players doing their thing while the suitcases rotate around them.
