Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Winnipeg Blue Bombers Play-By-play Thread

It has been too friggin' long between CFL Football games.
This is the thread where we talk about the game in real-time (without having to rely on hashtags). The game's on TSN, CHML, and Internet broadcast by the team.
Masoli is our starting QB and has his favourite receiver to throw to.
Evans is our backup QB and I feel we give up NOTHING if he has to come in and play.
Yes, CVZ is injured for this game, and we're starting a new LT. Okafor is solid, but this game should show us if he's ready to jump to the next level in his career.

I will breach the bottle of Lagavulin 16 (from my 50th), cook a perfect inch-thick rib steak on my new Napoleon BBQ (along with grilled corn), fire up a Cuban stogie, and watch the game in my basement theatre along with thousands of similar CFL fans across the country and around the world.

OSKEE WEE WEE!
OSKEE WA WA!
HOLEY MACKINAW!
TIGERS - EAT 'EM RAW!!!

Does anyone have a copy of the Tiger-Cat Marching Song? It was written by Ralph Sazio and Jake Gaudar. If you do, it would seem to be appropriate to post it here.

Sounds like everyone used to wear more hats back then. Players played both ways, while coaches and GMs wrote fight songs and designed logos.

I guess it's in the fb link above? I don't have fb so I can't confirm it is the right one.

But I basically remember all the lyrics. (although there may have been a small mistake or two, lol).

It starts,
We love those Cats,
Those Tiger Cats,
The team with spirit and fight ...
right?

Weather update: Air quality alert issued for City of Winnipeg ahead of CFL season opener

According to the alert, numerous forest fires are sending plumes of smoke throughout much of Manitoba. The most dense smoke will be in the vicinity and downwind of the fires ...

Individuals exposed to the poor air quality may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath. Children, seniors, and those with cardiovascular or lung disease, such as asthma, are especially at risk.

i've found campfires keep the mosquitos at bay.

I'm sure the people of the 'Peg prefer smoke to mosquitos, lol.

Don't players and staff have to wear masks on the sidelines
That should help with some of the smoke

Just a few more hours
