Hence I will say it right now, I have a bad feeling about today's game. It reminds me of the second game of the 1966 Eastern Conference 2 game total points final:
Ottawa Rough Riders @ Hamilton Tiger-Cats
November 13 Ottawa Rough Riders 30 Hamilton Tiger-Cats 1
Eastern Finals – Game 2 Hamilton Tiger-Cats @ Ottawa Rough Riders
November 19 Hamilton Tiger-Cats 16 Ottawa Rough Riders 42
We were soundly thrashed and it is a pain I still feel today (49 years later).
I hope, and pray that I am wrong and that we will be repeating the second game of the 1972 Eastern Conference 2 game total points final:
Hamilton Tiger-Cats @ Ottawa Rough Riders
November 18 Hamilton Tiger-Cats 7 Ottawa Rough Riders 19
Eastern Finals – Game 2 Ottawa Rough Riders @ Hamilton Tiger-Cats
November 26 Ottawa Rough Riders 8 Hamilton Tiger-Cats 23
I was at that game and remember thinking it erased some of the stain on my soul from 1966.
Go get 'em Cats for all of the other then 10 year olds who still have the sour memory of 1966. The third time will be a charm.:cowboy:
