Click here for the depth chart (which
Kwame Cavil is still listed on as I type this.)

Click here for today's weather forecast in Regina. Right now, there is a 0% probability of precipitation and southwest winds of 10 km/h are expected.

And as the Ticats enter the second half of the season, let's hope they get it off to a good start.

29-1 Green Riders

Why can't those farmers get to the stadium earlier and let us Easteners watch our team during prime time?

Because the CFL does not want to compete with itself in T.V. ratings.

You mean somebody else is playing tonight?

After last weeks huge let down, I am having troubles getting excited about todays game.

With this gang, you never know. Sad but true. LMAO

That is suspense enough to turn on the set for me.

Hopefully the weather will hold up outside and I can catch the game out on my balcony. Last night here in Montreal was gorgeous. :wink:

Oski Wee Wee,

I’m not a farmer, but i do live in a time zone that is 2 hours behind Hamilton. Because of the time difference, there has been 4 of the 9 games the Cats have played this year where I missed the first half of the game because I don’t get off work until after the game starts.

So this starting time works for me.

Who won?


I'd rather be 2-8 than live in Saskatchewan.

I agree, Saskatchewan is a place that time forgot (to be nice about it). Good thing I live in Alberta. You know the province without a provincial sales tax. The province where every Man, Woman and child got $400.00 from King Ralph.

Saskatchewan is one of the few places that doesn't bother with the whole day light savings thing.

I'd like to see Saskatchewan sometime....apparantly it's so flat, all you have to do is stand on a kitchen chair and you can see the whole province.... :lol:

Good Luck to the Ticats tonight... :thup:

$400. will hardly buy me a weeks worth of bananas...

but it will take Boreham off of our hands.


Take the 401 from London to Windsor, it will give you an idea.


Good point!

I'll add that the route between Montreal and Quebec City is a yawner too.....(Hwy #20 I think they call it)

Autoroute 20 :wink: :smiley:

Oski Wee Wee,

ya I think the Eskimos could use a new FG Holder. :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's not that flat, BUT, when (not if) your dog runs away you can watch him for three days. :lol: :lol: 8) :twisted:
