2010 CFL East Division Semi-Final
Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team
November 14, 2010
Here we are again. It is that time again. Playoff time for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. And now that this day has come, it is time to post the thread for posting about the game as it happens. Those of you unable to make it to the game can post to this thread about what happens during the game. And here we go.
WHAT – The 2010 CFL East Division Semi-Final: Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team. Good vs. Evil.
WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and that blue team (also known as the Blew Team, Arblows, Argholes, Arenogoods, Argoofs, Vacuum Cleaners, Vacuum Creators, Shipwrecks, Dinghy of Despair, Pond Scum, Putrid Biped Excrecences, Evil Incarnate, or They Whose Name Shall Not Be Spoken, as you never call them the "Ar******s".)
WHY – To see which of these teams will go to the Big Owe for the EDF game and to see which one will have its season end, of course.
WHERE - Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.
WHEN - Sunday, November 14th, 2010, at 1:00 p.m. EST.
HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) or Y108 (107.9 MHz FM) broadcasting from Hamilton.

Click here and here to view those "Rivalry Lives On" commercials. If you play them both simultaneously, it sounds like a Ticat fan and a blue team fan arguing with each other. And it would be great if the fans at IWS could be as loud as the guy in the second video when the blue team offence is on the field.

Click here for today's weather forecast. At the time I'm posting this, there is a 90% probability of precipitation and southwest winds of 20 km/h are expected. Close to 1 mm of rain is expected, so you may want to refer to this if you're going to the game: How to Make a Trash Bag Poncho: 5 Steps (with Pictures) - wikiHow. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 11 degrees Celsius.
This is it. It is playoff time for the Ticats and their enemies. One of these teams will go to Montreal for next week's EDF game. The other will have its season end after being defeated by their enemies. I do not need to tell anyone here that a loss would be considered absolutely unacceptable. The Ticats have won all three regular season meetings between the teams this year, as you can see here, here, and here. And completing the sweep of this team would not only be nice, but it is what absolutely must be done. Last year, our season was ended in our house by a team that was winless against us in the regular season. That must not happen again, especially considering who the opponents are. Finish the sweep. Finish the blue team off. And make the final game of the year to be played at IWS a memorable one, one that will be talked about as a great moment in the history of this team and this rivalry.
And now there is only one thing left to be said in this post, which I will say a little more "loudly" than usual...
