From the scratching post...
The Ticats practiced indoors for the first time all season on Thursday – even though they didn't have to.
Head coach Kent Austin took a look at the weather forecast early in the morning and decided to move his team's third and final day of on-field preparation before Saturday's critical match up with Montreal to Player's Paradise in Stoney Creek.
And then the weather cleared up.
"I'm now like 0-for 23... we should have been outside today," Austin said, chuckling. "We wanted to make sure that we executed well and with the possibility of inclement weather, we wanted to avoid a wet ball, slipping and those types of things."
My question is... With the weather that they are calling for Saturday afternoon, wouldn't it make more sense to practise in the cold and wet so you are use to it?
