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.

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...
