Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Bombers: July 27, 2007
Yes, it is gameday once again for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. And so it is once again time for this thread for discussion of the game as it happend to be posted here. And since it seems at least a few people like to have these game threads started off BYF style, I'll once again volunteer to get this thread started up.
WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday: Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Bombers
WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and The Winnipeg Blue Bombers
WHY – To see if the Ticats can get themselves two points behind the second place teams in the East Division by defeating the team that has earned its place as the division's first-place team. (And they'll only be three points behind this first-place team if they win.) And to see if Stegall will get that record breaking touchdown, but hopefully he will not. Although it is who wins the game that matters the most.

Click here for the Tiger-Cats depth chart. It is good to see Cody and Bauman listed on it.
Winnipeg's depth chart is currently not available, but you can click here to have their recent depth charts, and the one for this game when it becomes available. And Sam Young, who may get booed quite a bit at IWS next week, will likely be listed as a starter on the depth chart.
Click here for tonight's weather forecast. Right now, there is a 10% probability of precipitation this evening and east winds of 5 km/h are expected. And at this time, it is expected that the temperature will be about 25 degrees Celsius.
And so this game begins with the Ticats still winless, but not to be taken lightly. Last week, the Ticats might not have won the game last week, but they might have won respect. But will the Ticats build on this success, or let it get to their heads? The latter had better not happen if the Ticats are serious about being competent this season, with two other East Division teams being 2-3 at this time. This is an opportunity for the Ticats to get into that race, and it is thus very important that they get an actual victory rather than a moral victory this time.
