Tiger-Cats vs. Roughriders: August 16, 2009
Tiger-Cats gameday is here again. And so the time to post the thread for posting about the game as it's happening has come. So I'll get it started off once again, as it seems I'm expected to get these threads started off. The last game thread, which you can click here to view was a fun one, let's hope this one will be even better. In any case, here we go.

Click here for tonight's weather forecast. At the time I'm posting this, there is a 90% probability of precipitation this evening. Light rain is in the forecast, and close to 5mm of it is expected. Northwest winds of 30 km/h are expected. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 8 degrees Celsius. Seriously. 8 degrees in August.
The Ticats haven't won in Saskatchewan since August 2000. They came close to winning the last time they were there, but they are out to win, and anything less than that will be a disappointment. Saskatchewan does look beatable, the Ticats can beat the Riders despite the Ticats being 5 point underdogs for some reason, so I say...
