Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Team: August 13, 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 IWS. But those who can’t make it to IWS and will have to watch the game on television 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, 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 to 4-3, keep up with the Als and Bombers in the standings, and keep the blue team deep in that hole that they are in and extend that team’s losing streak to six games.
WHERE - Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.
WHEN - Saturday, August 13th, 2011, at 7:00 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 10% probability of precipitation this evening and winds of 10 km/h are expected. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 23 degrees Celsius.
This is the one time that the blue team will play at IWS this regular season. And the Argholes come into it in a deep hole, as they are off to a 1-5 start and just fired their defensive coordinator. We don’t know what exactly to expect from Steinauer, and that firing may have motivated the blue team players, perhaps giving them a “spark” if you will. It has been said that they are not as bad a team as their record indicates, and there might be some truth to that. However, we have recently seen that the Ticats can beat this blue team as long as they don’t defeat themselves. And they may look to prove how good they actually are after that disappointing second half in Calgary last week. A one-sided win in our favour would sound good. In a future episode of The Extra Yard, I want to see Jim Barker lose it on the IWS sidelines at the end of this one.
