Tiger-Cats vs. Bombers Play-by-Play Game Thread: 10/7/2011

Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Bombers: October 7, 2011

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. 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 there can discuss the game with their fellow Ticat fans here. So here we go.

WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday. Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Bombers.

WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (also known as Skeeterville, Staggerville, Gaggerville, etc.)

WHY – To see if the Ticats can improve their record to 8-6, and catch up to those two teams ahead of them in their division.

WHERE - Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.

WHEN - Friday, October 7th, 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 0% 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 16 degrees Celsius.

The Ticats have not been more than one game above .500 yet this year. The Ticats have not been had a winning streak that has lasted longer than two games this year. 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. With exception to the game against Edmonton, this team has looked hard to beat in its own house, and they had better not let Winnipeg sweep them. This team has won both games since necessary lineup tinkering was done on offence, and let's hope it stays that way. And so now I say...

Go Ticats!

Great start to the game thread, BYF.

This has been a crazy year. Anyone can gobsmack anyone else on any given day. Our guys should be favourites which means banged up Buck and his staggerville bummers are not to be taken lightly.

Great weather tonight. Oskie Wee Wee!

The TiCats are favoured 3.5 - 4 points tonight.

The blue team is 13.5 point underdog to the Als. I always feel dirty cheering for them but here it goes - go blue team go. Eeeww.

I was hoping to watch the game on the NFL network down here in Florida but it's on at 03:30 AM!! Not sure why they show it on a tape delay in the early hours of Saturday morning :twisted:

Will the Bummers be Buckless, ether way I hope Buck plays so Big Browner will have one less excuse for losing. Go Cats

This has to be the most important game of the year, so far. If they win this one it's first place and then a fight to the finish with every game counting, if we lose it's settling for a third place finish and a trip to Winnipeg or Montreal for the semi.
You would think that the game would be a sell out by now.

I gotta go along with you on all points. A BIG WIN tonight would be great! :thup:

When will people realize this team does not sell out. id be happy with 26000. Aside from the die hards and the odd casual fan it will take demand to build the attendance.

get ready kitty cat fans for an old fashioned beat down by the bombers tonight .... Good luck you'll need it!!!

Sweep sweep sweep
Swag swag swag

I believe this is the same speech you tried on the Rider and Argo fans recently...and how did that work out for you...

The Blue Babies have lost 4 of their last 5 games....and your here running your mouth......Whatever...

Here I fixed it for you

Thanks, Half, he needed that.

All to happy to oblige!

:lol: :D

Get ready.. when the Bummers lose this game.. it will be the OFFICIALS who cost them this game... even if we blow them out!

Winnipeg will have to blame someone....it could never be because they lack an OC...a quarterback...an offensive line...a running back...a middle linebacker....

MUST win tonight, I've had the flu since Sunday, need a stomping of the bombers to lift my spirits or I may drown myself in a bottle of Buckley's cough syrup! :oops:

It's game time
Let's go Cats

Hi folks!

I usually find beer and bbq is the cure-all
Go fire up the grill and get a two four and you will be fine by tomorrow

Thanks, Ock.
