Oh, I can see this game getting confusing fast. Both teams look like they're wearing Ti-Cats uniforms. When Rod Black said the Ti-Cats were wearing the dark jerseys, I thought to myself, "Are you sure?" :?
Anyway, I'm hoping for a Hamilton win because the Ti-Cats are my second favourite team, and I no longer like Mike Kelly (not that I liked him all that much before; I was more indifferent toward him).
When I saw Hamilton's jerseys, I thought the black looked dark blue, and so I just assumed they were the Bombers. They actually reminded me a bit of the retro uniforms the New York Jets wore last season. The Bombers uniforms look like Hamilton's away uniforms. :lol:
Actually, the helmets were about the only thing that didn't match the old uniforms. In the 60s, the Ticats wore yellow helmets. I'm disappointed that they kept them black. The "TC" on the side was virtually impossible to see.
Not sure how it looked on TV, but the yellow was actually gold -- more of an orange-yellow than the yellow they currently wear. I remember when the '72 Grey Cup was played here, the entire city was covered with those colours, and it really brought back memories to see that colour combo again. Not sure when or why they switched colours.
When I first walked into the stadium, I was wondering why the Ticats were warming up at the visitors' bench, and why they were wearing the white shirts. Then I saw our boys at the other end, and pieced it together. Still, a few times I had to think for a second before cheering: "Wait, is that a catch, or an interception?" :lol:
