Tiger-Cats gameday is here again. After last night's provincial election that may have left many of us on the edges of our seats, we may now be on the edges of our seats again tonight. 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.

Those two things need to change, and they can change tonight. And it is quite important that they do if the Ticats want to have a chance to finish in first place in their division.
