Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team: October 1, 2011
Tiger-Cats gameday is here again, and so it is time to post the thread for posting about the game as it happens. If you want to post about the game as it's happening, this is the place to do so. There may not be as many posts here, as many of those who post to these forums will be there at the Dome. But those who can't make it there can discuss the game with their fellow Ticat fans here. So here we go.
WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday. Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team.
WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and that blue team (also known as the Blew Team, Arks, Arblows, Arseblows, Argholes, Arenogoods, Argoofs, Vacuum Cleaners, Vacuum Creators, Big Choke from the Big Smoke, Ugly Bags of Mostly Water, Shipwrecks, Dinghy of Despair, Pond Scum, Putrid Biped Excrescences, Evil Incarnate, or They Whose Name Shall Not Be Spoken, as you never call them the "Ar******s".)
WHY – To see if the Ticats can improve their record to 7-6, win the season series against the blue team, stay ahead of Saskatchewan and keep up with Winnipeg and Montreal in the standings.
WHERE - The stadium formerly known as (and still often referred to as) the SkyDome in Toronto, Ontario.
WHEN - Saturday, October 1st, 2011, at 7:00 p.m. EDT.
HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) or Y108 (107.9 MHz FM) broadcasting from Hamilton.

The Ticats may have impressed during their win in Moncton last week, but have not been able to get consecutive wins since July. But they are going up against a team that has not won consecutive games at all, and that team won last week. Still, a win may not necessarily come easily against this 3-9 team, as it did not come easily the last time these teams met. The blue team needs this win badly, because if they lose, it'll be highly unlikely that they'll make the playoffs. But the Ticats need this win to have a chance of hosting a playoff game again, although the Dome may seem like home for the Ticats as loud Oskeeweewee chants will be heard in Toronto as they were in Moncton last week. And so now I say...
