Tiger-Cats vs. Lions EDSF Play-by-Play Game Thread:11/15/09

2009 East Division Semi-Final: Tiger-Cats vs. Lions: November 15, 2009

Tiger-Cats gameday is here. But this is not just any ordinary gameday. It is a playoff gameday. The CFL playoffs are back, and I for one like this time of the year. I like it even more now that we are involved in it. Playoff football is back in Hamilton. To those going to the game, have fun, and make sure you make lots of noise when the B.C. offence is on the field. To those who can't make it, you may post to this thread during the game to discuss the game with other Ticat fans. Here we go.

WHAT – The 2009 East Division Semi-Final: Tiger-Cats vs. Lions.

WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the British Columbia Lions.

WHY – To see if the Ticats can win the last game at IWS this year and go on to play in the EDF game at the Big Owe, of course.

WHERE - Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.

WHEN - Sunday, November 15th, 2009, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) or Y108 (107.9 MHz FM) broadcasting from Hamilton.

Television: TSN/RDS.

Click here for today's weather forecast. At the time I'm posting this, there is a 20% probability of precipitation and winds of 20 km/h are expected. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 14° Celsius.

Well, here we are in the playoffs for the first time since 2004. And this playoff game is in our house for the first time since 2001. And now we hope for our first playoff win since 2001. We have been through much in these last eight years. A win sure would be great. I'd also like to see it happen so that we will not have to listen to jokes about a team from B.C. being in the East Division Final game. Anyway, we have defeated this these west coast cats both times we played them, but not before a certain ex-Ticat QB joined them. Will Printers look like he was supposed to when he played for us? Will this Ticat team keep getting better on this playoff run? One of these two teams will have its season end today. The other will play in Montreal in the EDF game next week. And now I say, and just a little louder than usual...


This had better be the shortest game thread in Ti-cat history,
What with all forum members in attendance at the game .
No Excuses after so long out of the play-offs.


Lets make some noise today!
just over 3 hours :slight_smile:

Time to rumble in the jungle ! :rockin:

Here's some favourite Ticats stadium tunes over the years to get us jacked up before we head off to the ball park

  1. Guns N' Roses......................Welcome to the Jungle
  1. AC/DC ......................Thunderstruck ( I don't care what anyone says, I know they're chanting "Ticats!)...lol

3)Survivor.....................Eye of the Tiger
