Last night was AWESOME!
I don't have the priveledge of seeing Tiger-Cats home games due to the fact that I live in Windsor. However, knowing that I am going to the Canadian Military I wanted to check out a home game before I left. IT WAS FANTASTIC!
I heard a lot of bad things about the Stadium... but MAN... the feeling inside of that place! And the fans... you could tell that they LOVED their team. I love the fact that it's not situated in the middle of some commercial area or out in the middle of nowhere. It made me feel like the team was really a part of the community.
And then there was the Fighter Jets!!!!!!!!!! Wow.
The game didn't end how I would have liked and really... there wasn't much to cheer about on field... But my experience was still unbelievable.
A couple of years ago I went to the Stampeders home opener against the Argos (When Prefontaine got punched on the sidelines)... The atmosphere was pathetic compared to Hamilton.
Good job fans and thank you!
