Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team: November 3, 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. The final regular season game of the year for the two teams in it. Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team.
WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and that blue team 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, Shipwrecks, Dinghy of Despair, Pond Scum, Ugly Bags of Mostly Water, 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 finish the season with a 9-9 record, sweep the blue team, and look like they are ready for the upcoming EDSF game.
WHERE - The stadium formerly known as (and still often referred to as) the SkyDome in Toronto, Ontario.
WHEN - Thursday, November 3rd, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. EDT.
HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) or Y108 (107.9 MHz FM) broadcasting from Hamilton.

Click here for tonight's weather forecast. At the time I'm posting this, there is a 30% probability of precipitation this evening and winds of 30 km/h are expected. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 8° Celsius.
After this team appeared to be anything but playoff-ready last week, they go into Toronto to take on that other team that won't be in the playoffs. For the Ticats, it appears that this game will be about giving starters some time to get themselves to be playoff-ready, and then giving them some time off. In other words, it may be like the second preseason game of the year. But it's often said that there is no such thing as a meaningless game against the blue team. And this team must know the importance of not losing in the playoffs or when the blue team is the opponent. So let us hope to see this team end the regular season with a win, and at least make us believe that they can win the EDSF game this time as they sweep the blue team. And so I say...
