Tiger-Cats vs. Stampeders: July 10, 2010
Tiger-Cats gameday is here again. And so the time to post the thread that will be used for posting about the game as it's happening has come. Those of you who want to discuss what's happening during the game as it's happening can post during the game here. We may not get as many posts to this thread as it'll be the "can't make it to IWS" crowd that'll be posting here. But here we go.
WHAT – Tiger-Cats Gameday: Tiger-Cats vs. Stampeders.
WHO - The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Calgary Stampeders.
WHY – To see if the Ticats can rebound from last week's disappointing start and get their first win of the season, and to see if they can demonstrate how good they actually are in their home opener.

WHEN - Saturday, July 10th, 2010, at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

Eight days ago, this team started off its 2010 campaign with a disappointing start. But the team got off to that kind of start last season, and last year, the team looked much more impressive in week 2. We hope to see the same happen in this game against a team that did not impress much versus that other Ontario team last week. The Stamps don't tend to do very well at IWS, as Henry Burris said in this article. Will the team keep it that way? Will players who were criticized much last week redeem themselves? Will players who we know are good remind us how good they are? Will Marcus Thigpen prove that he won't just be another member of the Tony Akins "Had a Great First Game and Did Little After That" Hall of Fame? We will see. And so now I say...
