Labour Day 2007: Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team: September 3, 2007
Labour Day is here, and so the annual Labour Day games are to be played today. And so now it is time for the game thread for this game to be posted. If you are one of those who’ll unfortunately not be able to be there at IWS, this will be the thread for commenting on the game as it happens.

Click here for this afternoon's weather forecast. Right now, there is a 0% probability of precipitation this afternoon and west winds of 20 km/h are expected. And at this time, it is expected that the temperature is expected to be about 28 degrees Celsius, but it's expected to feel like 33 degrees with the humidity.
And so Labour Day is finally here. And it begins with the blue team being ahead of the Ticats in the standing by two points. This year’s Labour Day game will be the first of two games in consecutive weeks in which these two teams play against each other. Both teams will want to win both games considering where they are in the standings, and who their opponents are. Indeed, the standings do not seem to mean as much on this day. Losing is not an option when playing the blue team. Ever. Especially on Labour Day. Now let’s see if will truly be a Labour Day Classic.
