Very simple really: there are several hundred Tim Hortons outlets around the Hamilton region but only a few dozen Tiger-Cat players. They simply cannot be everywhere.
Despite taking a day off from training camp (whose idea is this anyway? ) and sending most of the team on the road for the whole day, we'll only get to a small fraction of the Tim Hortons outlets.
We get to Burlington a -lot-. But never as much as we, and our fans, would like us to.
If you have a worthy cause don't hesitate to call the 'Cats 905-547-CATS (2287) and invite them. As far in advance of your event as possible, six months to a year is not too early.
As you can guess, the Tiger-Cats are very popular, so please don't be disappointed if they cannot fit your event into their schedule, they still have to find the time to practice to win football games!
