Yes, the first Tiger-Cats gameday of the 2007 regular season is finally here. And so the first regular season game thread is finally here. We have been waiting for this for a long time. A new season begins, and we hope for this season to get off to a good start. But whatever happens in this game, there will be much discussion of it as it happens, here in this thread I’ve volunteered to set up.

And so a new season begins. It is time for a new beginning. Everything that happened on the field prior to this does not matter now. But the Ticats are not expected do that well in this game or during this season, but we’ll see if they prove a few critics wrong, starting tonight.
