Labour Day 2009 Play-by-Play Game Thread: 9/7/2009

Labour Day 2009: Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team: September 7, 2009

Labour Day is here. Which means that Tiger-Cats gameday is here again. And so the time to post the thread for posting about the game as it's happening has come. So I'll get it started off once again, as it seems I'm expected to get these threads started off. In any case, here we go.

WHAT – Labour Day: Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team.

WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and that blue team.

WHY – To see if the Ticats will leave the spies four points behind them, and the blue team six points behind them.

WHERE - Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.

WHEN - Monday, September 7th, 2009, at 4:00 p.m. EDT.

HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) or Y108 (107.9 MHz FM) broadcasting from Hamilton.

Television: TSN. "The Steeltown Network" as Chris Davis called it.

Click here to view the game preview on Ticats TV. There was much focus on the offensive line in this video. It was appropriate to hear Bigfoot mention the effect the crowd can have.

On Labour Day this year is a chance to move well ahead of that team down the QEW in the standings. But victory may not come easily. Our opponents need this win very much, and they may be better than their record indicates. The Ticats have lost their last two games, and need to avoid being on a losing streak. And any game against the blue team is a must-win game, especially on Labour Day. So having said that, I say...

Go Ticats!

8) Great job as usual BYF !!! :D

Thanks BYF. Great job setting up the thread as usual.
This could be the most hyped Labour Day Classic in many years, and I hope, the most attended. It would be so great to see a sellout crowd today to cheer the home team and give the blue team a real hard time.
Can't wait for game time.
Go Cats!

Nice job as always BYF. This game is a must-win if there's to be a home playoff game this year.

Thanks for another top notch game day intro, BobYoungFan. Go Cats Go!
