The Ticats were wearing their 1960s-era uniforms Saturday night but didn't have the gold helmets to match. According to Hamilton team officials, the helmets arrived late and weren't up to the team's standards.
Instead, the players wore their normal black helmets with the 'TC' decal.
The Ticats will have the gold helmets for the Labour Day game against the Argos and the following week for the re-match in Toronto.
I guess we were supposed to have gold helmets on Saturday but they weren't up to our liking. We will be wearing them on Labour Day and then against the Argos the following week.
But do we really want to wear them? I am superstitious and maybe that combination was lucky for us. Who knows?
