Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team: June 18, 2011
After a long off-season, it is that time again. Gameday for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. It may be only be the first preseason game, but it's an actual game that we can discuss as it is happening. And someone has to start the thread for posting about the game as it happens, and it might as well be me. I'm not going to retire from starting game threads yet. So if you want to post about what happens during the game as it happens, this is the thread for that. And for the first time in too long, 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 "Ar******s").
WHY – To find out which players on each team will be more likely to make their teams, and to see which players will succeed in trying to make an impression.
WHERE - The stadium formerly known as (and sometimes still referred to as) the SkyDome in Toronto, Ontario.
WHEN - Saturday, June 18th, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

Well, here we are. The first actual game for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats this year. It may be thought of as a practice in the form of a game. And some of the players playing this game will not play much for their respective teams in the regular season, if they play at all, in the regular season. But we'd prefer to hear about our players doing well this game, our rookies in particular. And this is hopefully where our rookies will first learn to see the blue team as the enemy, and that losing when the other team is evil incarnate is never acceptable. Will players we heard good things about continue to impress in this game? There will be discussions about what the team's roster may look like during and after this game today, starting here. A game in which we hope things go right for us, such as the enemy beginning to serve many... Lemon turnovers!
