Best Ti-Cat Game of 2009: #1

The countdown ends today. I've run down the four best games of the 2009 Hamilton Tiger-Cats' season. Today I unveil #1. Before I do that I'll recap the first four entries on the list:

#5 (Week 2): at BC
#4 (Week 6): vs. Edmonton
#3 (Week 10): vs. Toronto
#2 (Week 19): vs. Winnipeg

And finally, the #1 Best Ti-Cat Game of 2009 is.....

#1 (Week 18): 24-6 WIN vs. Saskatchewan

This was the best game the Cats played all year. They absolutely dominated all three phases of the game and did so for the full 60 minutes. Not only that, but they achieved this against a team that would go on to play in the Grey Cup. Never once did the team relent, or take their foot off the gas. It was full throttle for the entire game. The defense played its best game up to that point. Cobb was a beast, running wild on the Riders' defense. The wind hurt the passing game a bit, but it didn't matter. Making it even more sweet was that this was the final home game of the 2009 regular season, and everyone was sent home happy. When all was said and done on that chilly Halloween afternoon in Hamilton, the Tiger-Cats had played their best game of the 2009 season.
