The 101st Grey Cup Game
Tiger-Cats vs. Roughriders
November 24, 2013
Here we are. Grey Cup Sunday is here. And it's also Tiger-Cats gameday. It has been fourteen years since we have been able to say that it is Ticats gameday and also Grey Cup Sunday. And now that this day has come, I have decided to start the thread for discussing the game as it happens. Yes, I have come out of "retirement" from starting game threads to start this one. If you want to discuss this game we'll likely be talking about for quite some time here as it happens, then you may do so here in this thread. You can think of this thread as being like a virtual living room where fans discuss the game with each other. You can think of it as being like a virtual broadcast booth where what happens in the game is mentioned and commented on while it's happening. You can also think of it as being like Twitter but without the character limit. In any case, here we go!
WHAT – The 101st Grey Cup Game. Tiger-Cats vs. Roughriders.
WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Well, this is it. A day that we have waited for for the last fourteen years. The day that this Ticat team is there in the Grey Cup game. As Ticat fans, we have been through a lot of disappointment and setbacks since that 1999 Grey Cup game. And this season, this team has had to overcome a poor start, but then kept proving its critics wrong after that. And now, this team looks to prove its critics wrong one more time as they look to win the Grey Cup for the first time since 1999. This season may be looked back on as a good one for this team no matter what happens during this game. But what fans of this team have really been waiting for is a Grey Cup win, which is what can happen tonight. And it would be great to see players like Hage and Stala, who have been here for some time and have contributed much to the community, finally get Grey Cup rings. Is this the year when this team will finally get that long-awaited Grey Cup victory? We will find out tonight in a game that I'm sure we'll talk about and remember for a long time.
And now, I only have one thing left to say, which I will say "more loudly" than usual, which is...
GO TICATS! BRING THE GREY CUP BACK TO HAMILTON!
