Tiger-Cats vs. Lions: October 22, 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. There may not be as many posts here, as many of those who post to these forums will be there at IWS. But those who can't make it there can discuss the game with their fellow Ticat fans here. So here we go.
WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday. Tiger-Cats vs. Lions.
WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the British Columbia Lions.
WHY – To see if the Ticats can improve their record to 8-8, have a chance of being above .500 this season, and have a chance at hosting a playoff game if Montreal defeats Winnipeg before this game.
WHERE - Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton, Ontario.
WHEN - Saturday, October 22nd, 2011, at 7:00 p.m. EDT.
HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) or Y108 (107.9 MHz FM) broadcasting from Hamilton.

Click here for tonight's weather forecast. At the time I'm posting this, there is a 20% probability of precipitation this evening and winds of 10 km/h are expected. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 7 degrees Celsius.
This week, the Ticats go up against a team that they have defeated earlier this season. But that was on July 22nd, before that team that they defeated went on the eight game winning streak that they are on now. Things have changed since then, as a certain receiver named Bruce is now with those west coast cats. AB3's first game in Hamilton since that trade will be one of the subplots of tonight's game. Both teams have some of their better players sitting this one out due to injury. Chris Williams, who has an outstanding game in BC, is one of those players sitting this one out. What happens tonight could be interesting. Can the Ticats keep the Lions' win streak from lasting half a season? If that does not happen, the Ticats will once again have a record that is no better than .500, something they cannot possibly want. It unfortunately is almost a certainty that tonight's game will be the last Ticat game played at 75 Balsam North this year. But if this will be the last Ticat game at IWS this year, let's hope the home team makes it a good one. And so I say...
