Tiger-Cats vs. Alouettes: October 18, 2009
Tiger-Cats gameday is here once again. And so the time to post the thread for posting about the game as it’s happening has come. So I’ll get it started off once again, as it seems I’m expected to get these threads started off. And I expect Russ to get the thread started for the second half of today’s doubleheader where we hope to see the cats on the west coast win. Anyway, here we go.
WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday: Tiger-Cats vs. Alouettes.
WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Montreal Alouettes.
WHY – To see if the Ticats will move ahead of the spies in the standings, for at least a few hours.
WHERE - Percival Molson Stadium in Montreal, Quebec.
WHEN - Sunday, October 18th, 2009, at 2:00 p.m. EDT. (Hopefully the Ticats will take note of this, as with their slow starts, they don’t seem to know when the game starts.)
HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) or Y108 (107.9 MHz FM) broadcasting from Hamilton.

I don’t need to tell you all how unlikely it is that a Ticat win will happen. The Als are undefeated so far this year in the stadium where today’s game will be played, and the Ticats have only one win this year in stadiums not named Ivor Wynne Stadium. And considering how these teams have played lately, it may be hard to imagine a Ticat win happening. But stranger things have happened in the CFL. In fact, I recall an even-worse Ticat team beating these Als last year. You can click here to view the game thread for that game. The Als don’t need the win, but the Ticats certainly do. They need to go in and focus on doing what needs to be done, and so I say…
