Tiger-Cats vs. Eskimos: July 25, 2008
It is Ticats gameday again and so it is time for the play-by-play game thread for posting about the game as it is happening to be posted. There may not be as many posts to it this week with at least of few of those who would post here being at the game. But this thread is for those unable to make it to IWS to discuss it as it is happening. It'll also be a transcript of what was said during the game by a few members as it was happening. (And I wonder how many of those who go to the games read through posts in this thread after the game is over.) Anyway, I'm getting this thread started off this week, but I think I'll need whoever may be consider a backup thread starter to cover for me for the next few weeks. Anyone else who wants a chance to get to do this can give it a try. But for now, here we go...
WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday: Tiger-Cats vs. Eskimos.

Click here for tonight's weather forecast. Right now, there is a 10% probability of precipitation this evening and southwest winds of 15 km/h are expected. And at this time, it is expected that the temperature will be about 23°C.
The Bombers winning yesterday means that the Ticats could be tied with them for last place after this week. But a Ticat win combined with losses by the Als and the blue team would put the Ticats tied for first in their division. It was said in the Ticats TV game preview that the Esks have not won a game at IWS since 2003. And considering the importance of this game, that trend had better continue. And so all I can say after saying this is...
