Tiger-Cats vs. Blue Bombers: September 21, 2012
It's that time again. 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. You can think of this thread as being like a virtual living room where fans discuss the game with each other. You can think of it as being like a virtual broadcast booth where what happens in the game is mentioned and commented on while it's happening. You can also think of it as being like Twitter but without the character limit. There may be many posts here tonight, so those participating in this thread may need to do plenty of page refreshing. On a personal note, I am joining the 10,000 post club with this post, and you may find it appropriate that it's a game thread opening post. I did increase my post count quite a bit by posting to these game threads. Anyway, here we go.
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 catch up to teams they must catch up to in the standings to make the playoffs, and to see if they can leave the Bombers farther behind them in the standings.
WHERE - Canad Inns Stadium in Winnipeg, Manitoba. (And this should be the last game that the Ticats play at Canad Inns Stadium.)
WHEN - Friday, September 21st, 2012, at 8:00 p.m. EDT. (7:00 p.m. local time.)
HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) or Y108 (107.9 MHz FM) broadcasting from Hamilton.

The term "must-win" will often get used from here considering the situation that this team has found itself in. But this game may also be referred to as a "should-win" game. They are going up against the team that has the league's worst record, and that team they are taking on has been outscored 121-27 in the last three games. Yes, this Winnipeg team has its starting QB back. But if this Ticat team can be at least close to being as good as it was last week, they should get that much-needed win. And perhaps they just need to avoid mistakes, and avoid anything similar to what you see in the graphic below.
Anyway, I only have one thing left to say, something I must say here in my 10,000th post, which is...
