Tiger-Cats vs. Roughriders: October 19, 2008
It is once again gameday for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. And so the thread for discussing the game as it is happening is also here. The season may be considered over now, and the kind of excitement that comes before the opening kickoff no longer seems to be there. And although that was not actually the reason I did not start last week's game thread, I will understand if there will not be many posts here. Still, this thread is here for those who want to post to it as the game is happening. And here we go.
WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday: Tiger-Cats vs. Roughriders.
WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
WHY – To see if the Ticats can surprise a few people, and perhaps avoid being the last place team in the league again.
WHERE - Taylor Field at Mosaic Stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan.
WHEN - Sunday, October 19th, at 3:00 p.m. EDT.
HOW - Radio: CHML (900 kHz AM) and Y108 (107.9 MHz FM) broadcasting from Hamilton.

Click here for today's weather forecast. Right now, there is a 20% probability of precipitation this evening and northwest winds of about 20 km/h are expected. And at this time, it is expected that the temperature will be about 6 degrees Celsius.
The rest of this season's games may be considered meaningless, although it is a time to look ahead to 2009. What kind of experimentation will we see by the Ticats in this game? There have already been a few backups who have come in and impressed at least to some extent. Will we see more of this? And we do hope to at least be entertained. Both the Ticats and Riders are coming off being defeated in one-sided losses, and both may see this as an opportunity for a win. Will the Ticats surprise the Riders and their critics? It could happen, and so I say...
