Tiger-Cats vs. Stampeders: August 6, 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 be many posts here with this game not being anywhere near where most Ticat fans can get to. I expect lots of posting and page refreshing to be going on tonight. And so here we go.

Click here for tonight’s weather forecast. At the time I’m posting this, there is a 40% probability of precipitation this evening and winds of 5 km/h are expected. There is a chance of thundershowers, and hopefully there won’t be another lightning delay. And at time this was posted, it was expected that the temperature will be about 19 degrees Celsius.
After looking quite impressive in their win against Montreal, the Ticats go to Calgary to take on what may be the league’s most unpredictable team. Hopefully the Ticats won’t let a win against Montreal get to their heads as it seemed to last year, when we saw them get blown out in Calgary the next week. The last time the Ticats won a game in Calgary, it was 2004, the year of the Stamps’ failed Matt Dunigan experiment. It is time for that to change. After trading Arland Bruce III, this team needs to keep demonstrating that he is no longer needed here, and that they can win without him, starting tonight. But if the blue team can win in Calgary, then you have to think that we can as well. And so I say…
