    Cue the music!!!! Welcome Back Kotter...er Burris.

    Hamilton comes to McMahon with a 1-6 road record and a trail of potential and pre-season accolades. Entering the week the Hamilton offense had put more points on the board than any other CFL team. Entering the week the Hamilton defense had allowed more points than any other CFL team. Lots of issues there.

    Jon Cornish is 163 yards away from reaching the Normie Kwong record for rushing yards in a season by a Canadian. Corndog also needs a single yard rushing or receiving to reach 1500 yards from scrimmage this season.

    Calgary has won 7 straight home games against Hamilton entering into this game.

    Saturday also marks the 88th game coached by John Hufnagel which will tie him with Jim Duncan for the second most games coached in Calgary history. Huf is 56-30-1 as the Calgary head coach.

    Henry Burris played 146 games in a Calgary Stampeder jersey. He is 5th all time in the CFL for both career passing yards and career TD passes. Hank also broke Kevin Glenn's record with Hamilton for TD passes in a season.

    Luca Congi is on pace to have the most accurate season kicking FGs in Ticat history with his 91.4%. The record was set last year by Justin Medlock (Carolina Panthers) at 89.1%. Congi has only missed 1 kick from outside the 40.

    Chris Williams is leading the CFL in punt return yards and total touchdowns.

    The last time the Ticats pitched a shutout on defense was against Calgary in 1974.

    Williams is their most dangerous player offensively & we will have to play well against him. All it takes is one punt return or long pass to turn the game in their favour. The one guy I can't stand on that team is slot Dave Stala with Fantuz not far behind...

    This should be a heck of a game. Neither Burris nor Glenn should be lacking for motivation but it's Burris who worries me. Either he'll come out with a monster game, or the pressure will get to him like it often seems to in the playoffs. Unfortunately, as big as the media and fans are making this game out to be, I really don't think in the player's minds it will be big enough for the pressure to be such that it will lead to a Frank implosion.

    Hank is talking about wanting to beat the "team he used to play for" . Chris Schultz is saying Hank wants to have Huff think he shouldn't have traded him, or for Stamps defensive players & fans here to say we miss him. Typical Hank worrying about stuff like that before a big game. That's why I am don't miss him as our qb. It's all about Hank. He should be approaching the game as a Must Win for his team & concentrating on nothing else. Instead Hank wants respect... unreal.

    Well, you knew that was going to happen. Hang on to the damned ball, Glenn!! Secure it & tuck it away. Stupid fumble. Should never have happened. Then Hank throws a td pass??? You kidding me??? What a horrible start!!!! 7-0 Hamilton.

    I don't mind when the opposing team earns a td but two stupid mistakes on 2 consecutive plays like that? Why not just have the Stamps go stand on the sideline & let the Ti Cats throw on air?

    How can that be a fumble? He never had control or took a step.

    Hank thinks he was better than Tate. Blah, blah, blah, blah blah.

    So wearing the new heated gloves = 3 fumbles in the first quarter?

    Big INT return. Raymond out skated the opposition in the 1500m speed skate.

    Usher just tweeted that the crowd is "very sparse". Playoff race, only -1 and a little snow.

    They are losing the sidelines. Time to break out the sweeper!

    What's the halftime show? Hope it's Super Dogs that'd be fantastic.

    Love seeing the Gravely get trotted out there on the field to clean the stripes. Used to sell them back in the day!
