This is a BIG game for the Tiger-Cats. All off-season, people were talking about how Hamilton had the best shot of dethroning Montreal as the Beast of the East (shout out to the late Bam Bam Bigelow). In Week 4 we finally get to see if the hype can be matched by results.
Week 3 saw the Cats dominate from the opening kickoff to the final whistle. In beating Winnipeg 28-7, the Cats exorcised the demons of Week 1 (where they lost 49-29 to Winnipeg) and avoided starting the 2010 season at 0-3. As a Ti-Cat fan, I can only hope that Week 3 was the start of great things for the Tiger-Cats.
Rarely does a CFL team win a game without scoring a TD, but that's exactly what Montreal did, beating BC 16-12 in Week 3. Montreal has not looked like its regular dominant self in any of its three games so far, especially in Week 2 and Week 3.
Montreal is still Montreal, and until proven otherwise, they are the class of the East Division. This game is a great litmus test for the Ti-Cats, as Hamilton has not won in Montreal since 2002. I have the feeling that this is going to be one great game.
Much like every other week, AM900 CHML will broadcast the game via radio, whereas TSN and TSN HD will show the game on television.
On a personal note, I will be attending the game in Montreal in person. This will be my first trip to Montreal for a football game (and my first trip to Montreal since the Alouettes first season back in 1996), so I hope the Cats can provide a good kickoff to my weekend in la belle province.
