Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Bombers: August 26, 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. With this game not being anywhere near Hamilton, I expect many posts to be made here. I expect a lot of posting and page refreshing to be happening tonight. So here we go.

Click here for tonight's weather forecast. At the time I'm posting this, there is a 0% probability of precipitation this evening and northwest winds of 15 km/h are expected. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 21 degrees Celsius.
The term "must-win" is used quite often, but if the Ticats want to avoid losing the season series against Winnipeg, then they must win tonight. If they want to avoid being .500 again, and thus avoid looking like nothing more than a middle-of-the-road team, then they must win tonight. If they want to keep up with the two teams ahead of them so that they'll have the home field advantage at playoff time, then they must win tonight. If they want to prove that they can be this team in their own house this regular season, then they must win tonight. And of course, it would be great to see the Ticats end the Bombers four game win streak so we won't have to hear so much about how great this Winnipeg team is. So now I say...
