Labour Day 2012: Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team: September 3, 2012
Tiger-Cats gameday is here again. And it's not just any gameday. It's Labour Day. And it's not just any Labour Day. It's the final Labour Day game that will be played at Ivor Wynne Stadium. And it is time to post the thread for posting about the game as it happens. If you want to post about the game as it's happening, this is the place to do so. There may not be as many posts here today, with regular contributors here being at IWS. But in any case, here we go.
WHAT – Labour Day. This final Labour Day classic at Ivor Wynne Stadium. Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team. Good vs. Evil.

WHY – To see if the Ticats can get a much-needed win in the final Labour Day game that will be played at IWS.

WHEN - Monday, September 3rd, 2012, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

On Labour Day, the game is always considered a must-win. But it's even more important than it usually is that the Ticats win this game. First, to end their three game losing streak, and to not fall to far below .500, and to not let the blue team get any further ahead in the standings. And also, because we wouldn't want the last Labour Day game to be played at IWS to be a Ticat loss. This could in fact be the most significant Labour Day game in a long time. There have been some memorable ones, and let's hope this one will be one that we'll enjoy looking back on.
And now I say, just a little more "loudly" than usual, because it is Labour Day...
