Toronto Argonauts at Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Monday, August 3
7 pm et /4 pm pt

It's Us versus Them, round one of this season. A great way to set the tone for the home schedule is by beating Toronto in the opener. We shall see whether Good prevails! :wink:

Oski Wee Wee,


Go get 'em Tigers!!! :rockin: :cowboy:

A new #Ticats tradition at Tim Hortons Field this season... The Steam Whistle. Time to go to work!

Third uniforms tomorrow ?


Very Smart! Does anyone know how tall this whistle is?


It's 15' tall. I read that in an article or tweet earlier this week. I'd share the link if I remembered exactly where - sorry!

It was in a an email from the team:

UNVEILING OF THE STEAM WHISTLE - The Tiger-Cats will unveil a new 15-foot tall Steam Whistle located in the northeast fan terrace that will signal the start of the game, touchdowns, and game victories. The Steam Whistle is a tribute to the history of Hamilton and honours TigerTown, the team's rabid fans who create the strongest home field advantage in the Canadian Football League at Tim Hortons Field.

Game time AccuPat forecast :smiley:

Tough one to make because the two websites I use are in slight disagreement

Weather Underground says - Partly cloudy - 24C - winds from the west at 12km/h at game time diminishing through the evening. Only 15% chance of any rain.

The Weather Network agrees with the partly cloudy and the 24C temperature - but they have winds at 15 - 20 km/hr throughout the game and up to 40% probability of rain.

i use accuweather myself

23 degrees real feel 22 at 7pm.... 22/20 at 8pm
Humidity 59% at 7pm. 66% at 8pm
Rain 5% chance at 7pm. 0% at 8pm
Winds 18 WSW at 7pm. 15 WSW at 8pm
Cloud cover 70% at 7pm. 5% at 8pm

great night for Football :rockin:

Just be thankful the game wasn’t played last night - heavy rains, thunderstorms, gale force winds.

Environment Canada says there is a low probability of rain tonight (less than 40%). (I'll be bringing my rain gear just in case - but a little wetness won't keep me away). :rockin:

The temperature is ideal for football (starting with a humidex of 25 at 7:00 and dropping to 19 at 10:00). Should be a good game weather-wise.

:thup: :thup:

OH MY GOD IT'S ONLY 2:00 PM!!!!!!


Filling my downtime with the Jays game.. watching newly acquired David Price pitch!.. good game so far

As I complained about the RubyGlooms log cutting celebration, you can't call something a new tradition. It's only a tradition if it's been around for at least a couple of generations. Oskee Wee Wee is a tradition, Pigskin Pete is a tradition. The steam whistle is just something new we're doing....

What he said . . .

Hold your Horses!

15 Feet as in 2.5 fathoms or 45 hands?????

WOWZERS! Can't wait to hear that thing go off after a TD! :rockin: :thup: :lol: 8) :smiley:
