Hamilton - I was born here and now live here again. And even if that was not true and I was not a Ti-Cats fan I would still be cheering for them because I tend to cheer for underdogs once my own team has been eliminated.
Plus I think their accomplishments through two seasons of a very nomadic existence make theirs a great story. Last year having their change room downtown and bussing it from their to the west end for practices at Mac and games a 50 minute drive north up in Guelph, then this season still having the team's locker room at the team's offices in downtown and bussing for the first half of the season to Mac for practice and games and bussing east to THF for practices and games the last half of the season.
They could only use the field at THF for practices - not their change room because the stands/locker room areas only were open on game days under temporary opening permits as construction is still not finished. And they only had the advantage the support of a complete stadium with 24,000 Ti-Cats fans give them for the last two games at THF the only two games all sections of the new stadium were open.
To make it to their second Grey Cup facing all those distractions makes theirs a great story. Would love to see it have a great ending on Sunday.
