Labour Day 2010: Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team: September 6, 2010
Tiger-Cats gameday is here again. But it is not just any gameday. It is Labour Day. And so the time to post the thread for posting about the Labour Day Classic as it happens has come. If you would like to post about what happens during the game as it happens, this is the thread for that. There might not be as many posts to the thread this time, as it's only this who wish they could be at the game who'll be posting to it. But this thread is here for those who want to participate in it. And here we go.

Here we are. It is Labour Day. Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team. Steeltown vs. Hogtown. Blue-collar vs. white collar. Smog vs. smug. A rivalry that is about as old as this country. This game matters even more than it usually does for reasons previously mentioned in this post. There has been a lot of talk about stadium location recently. But today, for a few hours at least, there is only one stadium location that matters. I'll give you the address of that location: 75 Balsam Avenue North, Hamilton, Ontario, L8L 8C1. And you can click here to get a picture of that location taken from a satellite. And you can click here to view it on Google Street View.
